Well, i get home and go to walk the dog. What's this? My green little warrior isn't turning on. *Checks Hold* Nope. Ok, the battery must be dead, I'll deal with it later. So I get back, plug it into my computer; nada. It just randomly decides to stop working, it was working earlier that day, and it just sat there on my desk and made up it's mind that it would like to go to apple. Bad timing too, I go on a 5 hour road trip tomorrow. Now I play the DHL waiting game.

Tried resetting your pod? That sometimes works in these situations...

Try pluging it into a power supply, then holding menu and the center button for 6-10 seconds.
My iPod went "dead" a few days ago and I did this and it started up again, with all my music still there.
My iPod has been been doing this a lot, and I have to repeat this process almost every day, I will eventually call apple, but for now, I can get it to work.
