Like I mentioned earlier, if the computer won't even see it when it is plugged in and powered, it probably isn't the battery.

Re: Ipod Mini Won't Charge

I have an iPod mini and my husband has a regular iPod. The mini came with a USB cord to connect it to the computer, but no firewire wall charger. I have been using my husband's wall charger to charge the iPod mini every night, because it is kind of a pain to sync it up to the computer and have to eject it and everything, and the USB charging takes much longer than the firewire wall charger. Also, when I sync up to the computer my shuffle starts over. Anyway, this was working fine, but now all of a sudden the wall charger doesn't work on the iPod mini. It's like it doesn't even recognize that something is plugged in to it. The wall charger still works on my husband's iPod, and the iPod mini will still charge with the USB cord through the computer, so it doesn't seem like there's a problem with either the charger itself or the iPod mini. What should I try?

Similar Problem

Just in case anyone has the same problem I did...

My Ipod was running low on battery, AND I wound up dropping it. I dropped it, and then it would no longer turn on! I was pretty frustrated.

I plugged my Ipod mini into my computer via the charge cable. The charge battery image popped up on the screen, but didn't appear to be charging. It just stayed frozen on the screen like that.

When I unplugged it from the computer, it wouldn't reset, as it wouldn't do ANYTHING.

Solution: Leave the Ipod mini plugged into your computer for several minutes before taking it off and resetting it. As far as I could tell, it just needed a little juice before it could get up and running normally again.

Same problem here, I'm sure it's in need of a reset, but I can't get it to reset in any of the ways listed. ANy advice? Is the menu-based reset the same thing (I doubt it)?

Mmk, so this is a little off topic of fixing the iPod's battery...anyone got suggestions on killing it? Times running out on my warrenty and I'd like to get a new battery before the warrenty's out.

reply to druvak

Dan Given thank you so much for your advice ... I was disturbed by the support I got from an iPod technician who said my warranty expired 120 days ago and I should just purchase another iPod but following your advice to toggle the hold and then hold menu and select button for 10 seconds really worked... God Bless superstar thanks a bundle

For those of you, like me, that the reset hasn't worked for - try ebay. I've just bought a new battery for my mini for £3.99.

Ipod 3rd GEN Won't Charge

PROBLEM: I just bought a new battery on ebay to replace a dead one that wouldn't hold a charge. I put it in and the iPod worked for a few hours and then went blank. Now all I get is the battery/exclamation point icon when I try to reset the iPod. I read somewhere that the 3G iPod won't charge over USB, so I'm plugged into a wall charger from my wife's iPod mini, but getting no charge. Is there a separate wall charger for the 3G iPod? Also, I'm not sure if I'm getting the thing to reset or not. . .when I push and hold the menu/select buttons I see the battery/exclamation icon and then it disappears like it's out of juice. It's almost like it's turning itself off before it has a chance to reset. Any suggestions?

my iPod won't charge. I changed the battery but still same problem. It works fine on a ipod dock (with charging cradle) but take it off and it dies almost instantly. When it is on the charging cradle it shows the battery charging indicator. It is a 60gb Video 5G model. Help - I'm going crazy!!!
