never been jail broken, always used the apple usb for the 32gb. yes, the usb ports are working, just not recognising the ipod like itunes. i tried to charge it on my pc and laptop but it wouldnt charge. i charged it on my desktop a few times in the past and it worked, now it wont. the ipod was a gift i earned through pokerstars through frequent player points over a year ago. please help? so i cant take it to where it was purchased from. i am hoping that repairing it will cost less than buying a new one. itunes was also updated today.
