My I pod stopped working


How old is the battery ipod batteries can only be recharged a certain ammount of times before they need replacing

If an iPod appears not to turn on, check the hold switch on the device.

If this switch is activated while the device is off, it will not power on again until the hold switch is turned off.


If that is determined not to be the problem, the battery's charge should be checked. When the battery is no longer holding a charge, the device will not power on, but will show a battery icon on the screen for a few seconds.
If you see this icon while trying to boot up the iPod, just connect it to the USB cable and allow the battery to charge, which can sometimes take up to 30 minutes before the iPod becomes operable again.


If no battery icon appears when trying to turn on the device, try resetting the iPod.
Once reset, the device should turn on, but if it does not, the battery may need to be drained first (by leaving the iPod disconnected from power for up to 24 hours), and the reset procedure tried again.
hope this helps

Disney MixMax player... JUST bought this device. I installed the software CD, but that is JUST for the online/media storage component... I plugged it into the computer & computer wont recognize it at...


The manual indicates that it should show charging as soon as connected, and takes three hours to charge.
I have found that on some devices, this does not happen, and it takes a few minutes for the device to get enough charge into the battery to start up. This especially from new, or if left for a long while.
Try giving it a long charge, six hours is recommended by some manufacturers, using the same type of battery.
leave your computer on, it won't hurt it, as the USB ports, only supply power when it's on.

If it does not work then, as you have only just bought it, take it back.

Hey my ipod touch all of a sudden stopped charging. ive left it like that for awhile and now it wont even turn on HELP!


You will need to plug it into the computer. After you plug it in make sure it recognizes it. If it doesnt then hate to tell you, but it crashed on you. If it does recognize it then your good. Leave it connected to the PC to charge. when it is fully charged, RESTORE IT. ITS A MUST. and then plug it back in and it will be fine

3:connect your hardware device and click "yes i have connected the hardware"
4:scroll down and select install new hardware device
5:select install hardware that i manually select from a list
6:scroll down to windows portable devices
7:and choose MTP device
this should make it so your ipod is now recognised by the computer

Ipod wont show up on itunes


In order to get an Ipod to work on your computer never plug it into a USB hub. The hub does something to the power of the device that causes it to not perform, be recognized, or charge. Find a spare USB port to plug it in and see if it will find it.

USB hubs do not work on external hard drive devices. Jump drives will work on a hub
