    I need some help. A few nights ago I was listening to my iPod and the battery ran out. No big deal I thought so the next day I charged it, but when the apple came on the screen it wouldn't go away. I tried to reset it, to no avail. Then I tried to let the batteries run out and try it again. The batteries did run out(the iPod got quite warm while doing so), but upon plugging it back in, it shows the apple on the screen and then nothing else. I can hear the hd spinning, but it seems that I cannot get past the boot. Any suggestions on fixing it or is it dead in the water?

    Have you tried mounting it on your computer and restoring it?

    It may sound a bit silly, but when you see the Apple logo, you don't see the little icon that shows if the iPod is locked or not. Are you sure it's not locked when trying to reset it?

    There is no locked icon

    but I am 99% sure it's not locked. I'm not 100% sure because my locking mechanism is not working(which is why though I am upset about it breaking, I'm not heartbroken over it)
    Since it doesn't boot, I cannot actually mount it as a drive....anyone know if there is a market for broken iPods?
