    I have a ipod 3g 40GB ( the old one with the buttons above the wheel) that a friend gave me. I used it all day today listening to his music. When I got home I plugged it in to my PC and a message popped up saying that it was formatted for a mac. I restored the ipod so I could get my music on it and when it rebooted itself it shows a sync cable and an arrow and then cuts itself off. I can not get it to boot anymore. Has anyone had this issue before? If so what did you have to do to fix it?

    Are you using the Firewire cable? The USB cable should sync it, but it will not charge. It's possible it's flaking because of this, but if you're using the FW cable, I have no idea.

    I am using a USB cable and it gas a full charge so I know its not the battery.
