Hello all, This is one of those "similar-but-not-quite-the-same" problems which has been discussed elsewhere in these boards, but I haven't seen any response which would apply to this situation. Since yesterday not only does my iPod Touch refuses to be recognised by iTunes but when connected to my PC via the USB cable literally nothing happens (e.g. the battery won't even charge). I've tried this on two different PCs with two different cables. (I can, however, still charge the unit with a plug-in charger.) The other hardware issue which has existed for some while now is that the power off (not the home) button no longer works! It sounds like the thing is on its way out, but thought I'd ask the question before considering a replacement. The other salient points: 1st Gen 2.2.1 never been jailbroken trying to connect to iTunes 8 Windows XP Professional Touch long out of warranty. As I say this behaviour just started yesterday, no hardware or software changes have been made. "Reset all settings" has made no difference. Any suggestions would be most welcome and thank you for taking the time to read this.
