I just updated my 3G iPod to the newest software released yesterday and now it won't even power on. My computer doesn't even flinch when I plug it in. It just kind of is sitting here being all worthless. I rely heavily on it to keep me sane at work and I just arrived to work and am not sure what to do. Anyone know how to fix this?

EDIT: Not only does it not do anything when I plug it into my PowerBook, but when I plug it into the power adapter it also does nothing. No charge symbol or anything. Listen closely I don't hear any semblance of hard drive activity

May be a stupid question, but have you reset it? (hold down menu and play for a second or three). Have to ask.

its been plugged into the power supply for an hour or so, no response.

how do i reset it?

don't have a windows pc with firewire to do that with.

It is weird, i am getting absolutely zero response from it when i do anything. If i take it by the apple store will they look at it even though it is out of warranty? It only happened when i downloaded the update, which they supply, so i think they should look at it at least.
