My first gen touch wont turn on, it wont sync to my pc, and i cant get any kind of response out of it, ive tryed plugging it in, but the screen stays blank, and the computer doesnt recognise that it is...

Your iPod seems to be pretty dated - like 4 years old. A usual iPod only lasts for about 1 - 2 years - so bravo for making it last 4!
What seems to be the case is that your iPod probably has a dead battery so you can choose to do either of the following:
  1. Go to the Apple Store and ask for a repair on the iPod.
  2. Go to the Apple Store with your old iPod and purchase a new one. Mention to them that you are willing to give up your old one, and you will get 10% off of the price.

My ipod wont turn on

Step 1: Try plugging your iPod into your computer for a few minutes. If it begins to charge, let it charge fully.
Step 2: Use your iPod as you normally would. If it needs to recharge very soon, it is a sign that your iPod's battery is dying.
Step 3: You have three choices:
  1. If it is less than a year since you have bought it, go to the Apple Store and they will replace it for free on the spot as part of their 1 year warranty
  2. If it is older, pay them a fee to fix it OR
  3. Bring your iPod with you, and buy a new one for 10% off.

Ipod won't turn on!

Step 1: Try charging your iPod via USB to your computer. Wait for a few minutes and see if it is accepting a charge. (You might have forgotten to charge it)
Step 2: After a full charge, try using your iPod. If your iPod dies in less than 2 hours or so, your battery is weakening or is dying out. If this is the issue skip to Step 4
Step 3: If you cannot turn your iPod on even after those steps, then your iPod really is dead. Proceed to Step 4.
Step 4: You can do one of either three options from this point:
  1. If you bought your iPod less than a year ago, the Apple Store might replace your iPod for free on the spot as part of their warranty. OR
  2. Go to the Apple Store and ask for them to repair your iPod for a fee.
  3. Go to the Apple Store with your old iPod, and turn it in when you buy a new one - you will receive a 10% off for a new iPod.

Ipod won't power on. Computer won't recognize it.

Step 1: Check to see if your iPod can still be charged by charging it using a wall charger and wait for it to fully recharge.
Step 2: If it does charge fully, try using your iPod normally and see how long it lasts. If it lasts for only 2 hours, your iPod battery may be dying. If it doesn't charge at all your iPod may be dead.
Step 3: If either of the cases are true then you have two options:
  1. If your iPod is less than a year old, you can bring in your iPod to the Apple Store and have it replaced for free on the spot as part of its 1 year warranty.
  2. If it is older than 1 year, you can go to the Apple Store and have them replace the battery for a fee
  3. If you are looking for a new iPod anyway, go to the Apple Store with your old iPod, and tell them you are looking for a new iPod. They will give you a 10% discount when you hand your old one in.

My computer doesn`t recognize my ipod?

Hi, try these steps

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons simultaneously until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
