my ipod had a flashing apple and got hot when i charged it. Answered

I replaced the battery but it still wont work, at worst the most damage that could've happened is it took a bump. my pc does'nt recognise it at all so i can't reset it or do anything. i'm not even sure if it charges as when i plug it in it just comes up with the battery sign about a 1/4 full. could this be a harddrive problem or is it just dead. many thanks for any help.



Sounds like you got duped on the battery.

In order to restart your ipod, hold down the middle button along with the menu. Hold until an apple shows up on a black screen. This may help.

. There's a button combination that you can use to reset the unit. RTFM or Google.
