Ok... so I've got a 5g 80gig ipod (13 months and 2 weeks old) and today its decided it's due a day off. It was working in the house this morning... I go out to the car and nothing. No screen or hard drive activity, it no longer responds to being placed on its dock to charge or when connected to my Macbook.

Any ideas guys?

hopefully just the battery but then again you think it would work while on the dock.

If you have a mains adaptor try that, and try a full reset while it's plugged in.

Sadly, The same thing happend 2 weeks ago to mine. It was working fine, and then nothing. I wasnt been able to fix it but I hope your luck is better.

But try the reset like Kevriano said.

2. Press accelerator to floor
3. Quickly release clutch
4. Enjoy
