    My iPod Nano 2GB which was purchased January 4th, 2006 just died today! I usually use it in my car connected to the lighter and broadcasting with an FM adapter. I went out to run some errands today, it worked. I came out of the first store I went to...and it didn't work. I thought it was maybe the battery died because the adapter wasn't securely fit but I don't think that is it. I've tried plugging it into a wall socket and even to my MacBook via USB. It's not working, not recharging, nothing. It isn't even recognized by my Mac as being plugged in.

    Is this a common problem? Any solutions, short of buying a new one? My warranty is void. Why would this happen?

    Any help is appreciated.:apple:

    Thanks!

    Bookmarked the link!

    It worked for me...and now I feel a little dumb.

    But, any idea why that happens? Seems silly.:confused:

    No idea, when I used to use my iPods something like that would happen out of the blue and then start working again. At least it works now :D

    No idea what really causes it to happen, but it's happened to me once or twice, and to enough other people that Apple finally made that support page for it.

    I wouldn't feel bad, I thought mine were toast as well until someone else told me how to reset it.:)

    Glad you resolved the problem, it sounded like a worn out battery to me and I was gonna suggest ipodjuice.com for a <a href="http://www.ipodjuice.com">longer lasting, less expensive ipod battery</a>. I love mine, goes so long between charges now!

    This has happened to me a few times with my 4G iPod. It's annoying, but it passes.

    The worst was when it happened last month the day before my 10 hour roadtrip. ~.~
