    iPod won't charge
    Hi,

    I've had my 3gen 20GB iPod for a couple of months now, and it suddenly
    won't charge any more.

    I've tried:

    ipod->dock->firewire port
    ipod->firewire port
    ipod->dock->outlet
    ipod->AC adaptor->outlet
    ipod->AC adaptor->different outlet
    resetting the ipod
    restarting computer
    disconnecting / reconnecting all cables, making sure they're all clean

    I'm using the iPod on a non-sleeping Powerbook G4.
    It mounts fine, shows up in iTunes and on the Desktop.

    Faulty AC adaptor / Firewire port is pretty much ruled out, as at least
    one of them should work. It's unlikely both failed on me at the exact same time.

    It might be the cable, but as I said it mounts fine.

    Any suggestions?
