Re: ipod mini won't work
Hi footguy....When you say "wet", do you mean that it took a short iRinse? Or did it go for an iSwim?
Generally, these types of electronic devices, including laptops will of course, shut down when drenched, or upon excess moisture detection. But they also operate properly once 100% dry again.
If your iPod did indeed go for an iSwim, you may still have excess moisture. You may want to minimally open it to assist with the exposure of fresh air to accellerate the evaporation. DO NOT use any heated fans or hair dryers. At most, just a plain 'ol fan will do. If you are absolutely confident that it is completely dry, and still experience this issue, you may have to surrender and take it to an iDoctor.
Please update your post with any further information and/or your progress.....good luck my friend

I would attempt putting the ipod into disc mode and see if your ipod is recognized by the computer after you reconnect it.
I have researched this issue and found a knowledge base article on apples web site that may help you out with this.
Here are the steps to do it...
Putting iPods with a Click Wheel into disk mode
Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged.
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect"
If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center. If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.
If it won't go into disc mode while not connected to your computer, try doing the above steps with it already connected to you computer. If none of these steps work, it is sadly probably time to get a new ipod. I hope that it does help you out though. Good luck :)
ok if u have windows u need to do a search and type in anything that has to do with ur current iTunes and delete everything but the music folders and after u need to reinstall itunes and then plug in ur ipod after iTunes is open and try restoring the ipod.
go to google and type in iTunes download. find one and download the new software. once you have downloaded it on to your desktop double click on it and it will say welcome then plug in your ipod you should be good from there... this is what i did
OK what you need to do is reset it. To do this you will need to hold down the menu and select buttons simultaneously for approx 6 seconds until the apple logo appears on the screen. This should reset and un freeze your ipod.
Often, when an iPod does this it just needs to be 'reset'. To do this, turn on the iPod, and then press and hold the center button and the top ('menu') button just above it. You'll have to hold these two down together for anywhere from 10 to 40 seconds. When you see the screen go dark, you can let go.
At that point, you should see the Apple logo appear as the iPod reboots. Take this opportunity to reboot your computer... this might help out as well.
When both the computer and iPod have rebooted, go ahead and plug the iPod in and see if you get a response from iTunes.
I'm afraid this is not "the" solution, necessarily... there are a number of potential fixes for the issue you're describing, but this is the first thing that I would try.
The next thing to try would be to go into your control panel, into the add/remove software program and completely uninstall iTunes. Then reinstall iTunes, reboot the computer, and try again.
Best of luck!
Try booting it into disk mode. Do this by clicking on the menu and center buttons at the same time. When you see the apple logo, immediatley hold the centerbutton and play button down at the same time for 10 seconds. The ipod should now say disk mode at the bottom and have a check mark on the screen.
Then connect it to your computer, and format it using your computer. To do that click on my computer, then right click on the drive letter assigned to your ipod (should be like drive I: or H: or similar.. Then scroll down to format and click on format. This should reformat the ipod completely.
Once that is done disconnect your ipod from the computer and reset it again using the center and menu buttons. After it reboots, try reconnecting it to you r computer and see if it is fixed.
