Why won't my iPod 5th Generation turn on?
My ipod shows signs of life and all of that, and it comes up and says i need to plug it into my itunes to restore it. I did this sevral times and it would not show up in itunes at all. it is making me irritated because i spent alot of money on it and it's a 64 gb......... Please help!
I would first clean the dock connector as well as trying a different cable and a different USB port on the computer. I'd start of there, then go with a new battery after that. You mentioned that you charged it, did it take the charge. You say it's 64GB are you using a CF conversion on your iPod? The only other problem that I can see is that you may need a new HDD. The sad face makes me believe that your hard drive is on its way out. Good Luck
