At least that's what i think i give every ipod i own. My 3rd gen died on me so i got a 30gig ipod photo. Today i plugged it into my computer over USB to charge it, and the battery icon came up, but instead of a moving image showing moving bars, there was just a frozen image, this disappeared and now it wont work at all. I have tried firewire connection, (a different cable) and also tried charging directly from the wall with a power brick (official). Does anyone have any ideas what might be wrong with it? I cant restore it as the computer doesnt recognize it nor can i reset it because it doesnt charge. Oh, and a minor detail; upon inspection i found a piece of fluff stuck up the dock connector, i carefully removed it without touching the contacts. Please help me!
