Re: Ipod Mini Won't Charge

Try another outlet. I have an outlet that you have to have the plug out about 3mm or else it won't work.

tried that, nothing. tried different outlets and different plugs (ie my roommate's cord). thanks, though.

i had the same problem, but found a solution. i have 2 ipod's a 20Gb one and a ipod mini, both came supplied with chargers the 20Gb pod came with USB mains charger and the mini came with a Firewire charger. both chargers work with either pod, however when trying to do a software update on the mini it would not recognise that it was plugged into the mains and apply the update. after much messing around i decided to try the firewire main charger that came with the mini rather than the USB one and it worked. Software update is not applied.

woops, i mean the update is now applied, so get yourself a firewire mains charger, or pop into your apple store where i am sure they will have one and apply your update for you.

Apple should include that on their site or manuals, or something!
It's listed on the iPod Support Page Basics: Resetting iPod if it appears frozen or doesn't respond

my ipod will charge..it comes up with the battery and the triangle with th (!) for about 30 seconds..then it goes to a tick saying OK to disconnect..and sometimes beeps and the battery lol flashes and the tick comes up saying the same thing..

reply to druvak

thanks for the resetting info druvak! I figured it needed a reset, but had NO idea how to do it (of course it's not just as simple as pressing a reset button, right? they had to go with the next most intuitive option: toggle hold on/off, then press & hold menu and select for 10 seconds..... :>

thanks though!
