1: Plug your iPod into your computer.

2: Hold the power button and the menu button (underneath screen) down simultaneously until the screen goes black, then shows the Apple logo again. Then release the buttons.

3: Wait for five to fifteen minutes until your computer plays a "chime" sound. The iPod should then show the "locked" screen with the battery logo, and you should be good to go. You will probably want to resync your media to your iPod at this point, and make sure it's charged.
