    i got a netbook for christmas and haven't bothered my ipod for a while. the other day i turned it on and noticed that the battery had died. i went to plug it in and it wouldn't charge. so after a while i found out that it would charge if i kind of bent the charger prong by putting pressure on it (i tried this with three different usb cords and all did the same thing). so i figured i'd have to return it so i needed to restore factory settings. well both of my laptops wouldnt recognize (in regular OR DFU mode)it so i used the restore function on the ipod itself (under the general settings). after it was done it restarted and just kept restarting. i cant get it into dfu mode and i really dont see what good that would do anyways. is there anything i can do to fix it or do i just need to return it to the apple store? iPod Touch 1st gen fw2.2 (i think)
