Sorry if this is a little bit long, but I want to be as descriptive as possible. Also, if this is in the wrong section, I apologize. So, there's a glitch with the iPod Touch and iOS, I've searched it plenty of times, and as far as I'm concerned, nobody has posted the reason for this glitch, but plenty of people experience it. Anyways, the issue is that iOS crashes or something when the iPod is locked and it doesn't wake up when you push the Home or Power/Lock buttons. In order to fix this in the past, all I had to do push the Home and Power buttons and then plug it in and it would reset. It was quick and easy. Then my Home button randomly broke, which sucks. So since the Home button broke, I've had this iOS glitch happen twice, and since I can't reset it with a broken Home button, I've waited for the battery to drain, which would usually take one to two days. After the battery drained, I would plug it in, it would turn on fine, and I would continue using it. Now, on Monday at around 10 am, I noticed when I went to unlock and use my iPod, it wouldn't respond. So I got annoyed and thought "here we go again, no iPod for a day or two" and left it at that. It's been three days now and the battery hasn't drained. I'm paranoid. I think the battery might have died altogether because there's no reason at all that this battery shouldn't have drained already. It wasn't even fully charged when the glitch occurred. I'm paranoid because I have almost 700 pictures on there, countless number of important notes, and over a hundred songs. Despite my knowledge of these sort of things, I'm an idiot and my last backup was so long ago, so I can't even get a new one and restore it. I'm at an absolute loss here. It's $99 to replace a battery and $99 to replace a Home button. I don't even care about the Home button, I just need the battery to turn it back on, backup the entire thing, then as far as I'm concerned, with as much issues as I've had with countless numbers of iPods and iPhones, I'm done using their stuff. I just want my pictures/songs/notes. So the point of me posting this isn't to rant, but to ask instead if anyone has ANY ideas as to how to remedy this? I figure if the battery is dead, then you should be able to just plug it in and run off the power cord, similar to using a laptop with a bad battery, but when I plug it in, nothing happens. And if I can't get it to turn on, is there anyway I can remove the hard drive and connect it to something else to get the data off? Similar to hooking up the HD of a computer that won't turn on to another computer to back it up? I'll take any advice or ideas. Even if the iPod is rendered unusable after getting the data off. I'm a college kid with no job, so I really don't want to spend $99 if there's another alternative. Thanks.
