    Hi, my 2G 32GB iPod Touch hasn't been working in weeks, I've finally got round to doing something about it but the thing is I can't even put it into DFU mode to recover it as my macbook wont charge it at all and my windows laptop won't even recognize anything is plugged in. I've tried different ipod cables, I would think it is dead however whenever I plug it in to my alarm clock (that is compatible with ipod) it comes on and the apple logo is there for a split second, but then it goes off again. It's almost like it doesn't have enough power to come on but refuses to charge, am I missing something here?

    In case it helps here is the error message I get when I connect my ipod to my laptop;

    Try plugging it into the wall and see what it does.

    Hi thanks for replying,

    I've tried it in all USB slots, in my wireless keyboard, the USB slots on my actual macbook - same error still occurs.

    I have looked around but I haven't found anybody else with this kind of problem.

    Or call Apple —and tell them that when you plugged your iPod into your computer, your iPod caught on fire.

    It seems to be drawing too much power.

    Just call Apple since this would be a hardware issue and not anything that you could fix yourself.

    I'd still like to see what happens when you plug it into an outlet, though. See if it catches on fire, or the battery explodes.

    Then you might have a lawsuit.
