This is my first post here and I'm hoping someone will be able to help me out. A few days ago the screen froze on the apple logo. This happened to me about 9 months ago and I was able to fix this by restoring the factory settings. I can't seem to do this now because 1) when I plug it into my computer and try to connect to itunes, nothing comes up; it won't recognize it and 2) it will not charge at all (right before it froze; it was an almost dead battery). I left it plugged in the wall outlet and computer and will not charge. After doing a lot of research the past few days and trying all these things people suggest to do, nothing works. I also saw that it could be a faulty USB cord? If that is true would I be able to use (borrow) someone else's USB cord (like for an iphone)? I don't want to waste money buying one if that's not really the problem. Hoping I can get some ideas about how to fix these problems.
