I myself have never messed with older iPod models except the Nanos... So yeah, my dad got a 30gb iPod Video for $20. I plugged it into our wall charger and it shows the white screen saying to restore it black text. So then I plug it into my laptop, but I get the monochrome battery, I let it set there for about an hour trying to charge but I don't think it charged. Is the battery not holding a charge?
