    it doesn't turn on anymore and when i charge it it get's super hot but doesn't turn on? it's a 3rd gen ipod (i think, the one with the red buttons under the screen) do i need a new battery or should i just dump it and get a new one?

    have you tried resetting it?
    does your computer recognize it?
    if so, have you tried reformatting it via the iPod software updater?

    it could just be a software issue, but its best to make sure it isn't first before trying to figure out what else could be wrong with it. :D
