I reset the my ipod just like the apple web site said. Then it showed a power cord going 2 an outlet from the wall. So i plugged it in the wall. It still showed it. Then I pressed the menu and center...

You must have a 3rd or 4th gen Ipod. It should not do this with a reset. If you reformat it through Itune , then it will. The plug into a power outlet means it is trying to reformat. If it will not, your hard drive is corupted or logic board. If it is the hard drive and you can get it to show on your computer, you can go to your disc utilities and erase the hard drive by writing zeros. then connect to Itunes and reformate. Plug into a power wall charger and it should complete. You need a good charge in your battery. If your battery is not charging or needs to charge , that will stop it from completing a reformat. I hope this helps.

Can't use my ipod 20gb

Can you charge it? If so fully charge it and then connect it to the computer and reset/rebot the ipod and see if that helps, if you can't charge it just do the same thing.

Ipod wont work

It seems that you just did a fimware update. It wants you to plug it into a wall charger. If you don't have one, you can just borrow one off your firend. After you plug it in, it will do its thing and in about 3 minuites your finished. It will not charge through USB/ FireWire. I have tried it many times and failed.

Ipod just pauses

This can be caused by the audio jack, if it doesn't sit tight anymore, the headphone becomes disconnected for small periods of time causing the iPod to detect the headphone as unplugged, hence it will pause. If you're out of warranty you can send it to a third party iPod Repair Service.
