    My friend gave me his 3rd gen 8gb ipod touch to fix and jailbreak. The ipod doesn't turn on or show up anywhere in windows. Won't show up in Computer, Device Manager or Itunes, no sight of an ipod plugged in anywhere on my computer. Screen is completely black when plugged in. I have tried DFU mode and nothing happens at all, the back of the ipod is heating up telling me that it's charging so I don't think it's a hardware issue. According to my friend it has never been jailbroken and he never attempted to jailbreak it.

    So does anyone have any idea of what I could try?

    Well, it's still under warranty right?
