Question about Apple 20gb Ipod Mp3 Player With Click Wheel System
Most likely it's one of two things. The usb port connection fingers could be slightly dirty or oxidized, depending on their age, or you could have a bad battery, depending on it's age (some die in a year or two). Try some electrical contact cleaner on the fingers, let them thoroughly dry, and retry. If that doesn't work, try it in another port. If you google "usb ports" you will find pages that show the voltage configuration, and can measure the computer's port, in case you suspect one to be bad. Last suspect might be the cable. Remote possibility is a cracked trace on the port fingers of the ipod, which would need to be soldered. You can google articles on repairing ipods, and find some helpful videos. Seemed a little difficult to me, but the kid in the video got the job done. That's about the extent of my guessing, good luck, and hope this helps!

could be bad charger or time to replace the battery. lots of places sell new ipod batteries.
