I knew he had recently gotten an ipod touch so I said "Is that your old iPod?"
He responded "Yeah..."
I asked "Is it broken?"
"Can I have it?"
So the journey began to figure out what's wrong.
I was heading to school so no time to plug into itunes that morning, so while at school I fiddled with it...
upon switching hold on and off it would give the apple symbol then say "plug into PC" or something along those lines.
Got home that day, first thing did a restore!
Guess what! I see the menu!
...What's this? I can't control the menu?
So the buttons are broken!
This instructable (my first) explains a fix for if your buttons are not working, along with the "spinning the clickwheel" motion or whatever you call it...
Or to put it short
This fixes problems where NO CONTROLS work except hold switch.
