-------------------------------------------
My iPod was left on, and it's completely dead now. I went to plug my charger into my PC, and went to connect the laptop but nothing happened. No light blinked on my iPod and a small window popped up that said that my computer could not recognize the USB Device. What could the problem be? I just charged it on Thursday, no problems. Should I try one of the USB slots on the back of the computer? Although I'd imagine it wouldn't make a difference at all.

It might. Also, if the battery's completely discharged remember that it could take up to 30 minutes for the iPod to be recognized by your PC.

I plugged it into my Xbox just now, and that didn't recognize it either. The battery has been completely discharged several times before though. I normally go to bed while listening to my iPod, so most of the times, I fall asleep with it on and it just keeps playing overnight until it discharges completely.

Never completely discharge you iPod. These electronics are very sensitive and you risk killing off a part of it's battery life. There's a chance that the USB cable no longer works. Pray that's the case, other wise there's a chance your iPod's battery is completely dead, or it just needs to fully charge to get those lithium particles active again.

Thanks for the help. I've tried connecting it to the other PC and my laptop as well, but still nothing. I'm just going to get a new iPod. I'd rather have a video iPod anyway.

Well I don't have a wall charger and don't have enough money to buy one, so is there a way I can charge my i-pod on someone else's computer without accidentally downloading songs from their i-tunes account onto my i-pod nano:confused:

Tell them to go into iTunes and click on Edit > Preferences then click on the "Devices" tab. Check the box next to "Disable automatic syncing for iPods and iPhones". That should prevent an iPod from auto-syncing when connected to a PC.
