I tried the same things with it plugged into a macbook, but still it won't charge or be recognized. I have left it plugged in for a day, but it isn't charging. Is there anything I can do or do I need to take it to the Apple Store to get it fixed or replaced?
Hey there, my daughters touch was in a similar state, no recognition of the machine anywhere, and was stuck in a recovery mode loop. We charged it up on her stereo, then went through the recboot process suggested by the gentleman on "stuck in restore loop" post, AND IT WORKED. Give it a try, worst it can do is not work. It also restored all her music an d even pictures, etc.
