Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

Unfortunately the only way to get rid of this issue is to connect the ipod to the computer in recovery mode and perform restore, it will wipe the device clean, there is no other way to get rid of this problem.

Connect the USB cable to the computer but not the ipod, turn off the power from the ipod, and then hold down the home button and connect it to the usb cable. The ipod should power on keep holding the button until a icon of itunes appears on the screen. Computer will also notifiy you that itunes has detected ipod in recovery mode, you must restore. Click restore on the itunes window.

after the restore the ipod should work normally. But since this is a very strange problem the ipod might have gotten innappropriate voltage from the adapter and it might be in need of repairs. 21 414 982 minues should come up only after entering the pass code wrong hundrets of times.

Please let me know if you require further assistance or if you have any questions.

Please use the car adaptor and/or USB adaptor(Car adaptor is equipped with USB adaptor as well) to charge the unit. Car adaptor will be fast and effective as compared with USB, USB charging thru PC is slow.

Can i charge the camera other than through the usb cable ??


USB charging is not possible. You need to have the battery charger to be able to fully charge the battery. This should come along with the camera kit.

USB charging is possible if you will buy this:

"For charging by USB, simply change the head and plug in your iPod, mobile phone, PDA or any other 5V USB powered device to keep it fully charged wherever you are."

I have 3in1 USB 2.0 to IDE & SATA Cable but nothing to show me how to use this kit


1 external connection kit
1 internal connection kit

The internal connect kit consists of 1 red USB connector cable
and 1 internal white male molex connector to SATA female power connector
( 1 yellow wire , 2 black wires , 1 red wire )

the external connect kit
consists of a 3 pin power adaptor (with a tiny plug to save space) feeding a power supply which powers either IDE thru a Molex connector or SATA through a supplied adaptor. Supplied also are data connectors to link the IDE or SATA hard drive with a USB port. Use this adaptor set to retrieve data from a hard drive when it is not mounted in a computer.

You will likely need a stereo mini-plug (3.5mm or 1/8-inch) to stereo RCA plug cable (red and white RCA plugs). This is often referred to as a "stereo Y-cable."

If you can't charge it at all, I suggest getting a new battery. It might be faulty. If that doesn't work, complain to Nintendo and get a refund / new console.
