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!

reply to Need BB

Okay I'm having a problem with mine. It was working fine and dandy today but lo and behold, when I connect it to the USB cable in my comp, it doesn't charge or even go to the "don't disconnect" screen. It just stays there. And it freezes. I can unplug it and it works okay though.

I tried charging it in several different wall outlets and still nothing. I reseted the thing twice and redownloaded itunes again. Still nothing?

Can someone help me?

I would have guessed it was just the battery, but sounds like it is broken, if it is not even seeing it while plugged in.

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.
