    hello everyone, i have a first gen ipod 8gig... when connecting to my computer to charge it says "the usb connected is currently drawing too much power" and when i plug it into the wall nothing happens.. any ideas? If its a battery, id love to just replace it and get this thing up and running again.

    Try plugging into a USB hub that has an independent power supply. I have had the exact same thing and the iPod would not register when plugged into a wall outlet until it powered via USB hub. It took at least an hour before it even started to function. For giggles you may also want to try another cable too?

    Appsinreview... you mean an USB hub that is not internal on the computer? I have a macbook pro, would the wall charger be sufficent? Ill try another cable, but dont think thats the issue, it works with my ipod and nano.
