My ipod broke!

It got a little wet and my ipod spazzed out. My computer doesnt recognize it when it's plug in, and recently my ipod stopped recieving the computer all together. Nothing happens, no matter what i do. I plugged it into another computer, and it charged, but the hold button stopped working or something and the battery died. It no longer recieves that computer either.

Hey Tobyk947,

When an iPod gets wet, water may occasionally get inside the casing and cause damage to some of the interntal components. Among the most common types of problems that water exposure has been known to cause are electrical shorts, and in some instances expsoure can even cause corosion on metallic surfaces like the iPod's hard drive or battery casing.

Unfortunately, this means that your iPod is more than likely in need of repairs by a manufacturer-authorized technician. In order to obtain repairs you may always contact Apple directly or you can always speak with your local iPod dealer for more information. Remember that Best Buy™ stores are able to provide repair services for most products they sell, and Geek Squad® agents on-site at your local store are always able to assist you in finding a resolution to this issue.

Please keep in mind however, that it cannot be guaranteed that the repair will be covered by any type of warranty coverage. Most warranties will only provide coverage for hardware defects and standard wear-and-tear, and will not include coverage for accidental/incidental damages.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Sounds like a firmware problem, you can try and ask the same store to "fix their fix".

My computer won't recognize my ipod. I there


You haven't given a lot of info to go on here, but this is one possibility.

Ipod usually wants to be drive F. Unplug your Ipod from the computer. Follow these directions below. If you have something in your system assigned to F then reassign the letter. After you are done, reconnect the Ipod and see if that works. (These directions assume XP operating system)
  1. Log on as Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
  2. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Performance and Maintenance.
  3. Click Administrative Tools, double-click Computer Management, and then click Disk Management in the left pane.
  4. Right-click the drive, the drive that is labeled F and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.
  5. Click Change.
  6. Click Assign the following drive letter if it is not already selected, click the drive letter that you want to use, and then click OK.
  7. Click Yes when you are prompted to confirm the drive letter change.

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

5:select install hardware that i manually select from a list

Try it, I wrote it for a Itouch / iphone generally but basicly if its a driver issue that should solve it.

If not, can you post me the status of the ipod from the device manager?

Have you tried installing the ipod program cd from your ipod on a separate file. Under a different username? It may be conflicting with the older model ipod protocols. If that dosen't work try going to apple.com for further assistance.
