    If it is recognizing it as an iPhone, try reinstalling iTunes.

    Also, try charging from a couple of different ports. Even try charging it from the USB port of a Wii/360/ PS3 if you have one. If those don't work, it is likely your cable.

    lol that doesnt solve my problem, tried 2 cables different usb ports i have the apple charger too. Whenever I go to plug it in the force restarts then when i try to reboot while plugged in it get to about 15 seconds in and the screen goes dim and it turns off. I still charges I just can't use it at the same time it's charging. That suck for watching movies at night.
