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.

Re: My ipod broke!
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.

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

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.
