When charging, does it actually say "Charging" on the screen?

If not, it might be a bad PSU, and it'll charge off the firewire on your machine.

Otherwise it's faulty and you'll need to declare it DOA to Apple who'll replace it free.

You have to "reformat" it for your PC, using the CD that came with it. Plus you have to load the drivers, and Music Match.

After you reformat, it should work fine.
