    Odd iPod problem
    My iPod is malfunctioning, and I've never heard of this problem before...

    When I turn the iPod on, I get the Apple, then the Folder/! icon, then, if I'm hooked up to the charger or computer, it continues as usual. But after about 5 seconds, it turns off for a few seconds and then starts again. It continues to do this until the battery dies.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks, but that doesnít help.

    I understand the Folder/! icon, but the problem is that it goes through that then starts, but then it shuts down and starts back up, repeating.

    The computer doesnít recognize it because it doesnít stay on long enough.

    The Menu+Select didnít work, it just continues on the cycle of turning itself off then on.

    Charging it didnít help. After charging, it just took a longer time until it stopped doing it (which happened when the battery was fully drained) Plus, the same thing happens when it is plugged into the computer or charger.

    If none of those steps helped, then you are out of luck. If you still have APP on it, then definitely set up a repair for it.

    If you don't have APP, then you now have a fancy white paperweight.

    The same thing happened to my 3G 15 GB one. The cost to have mine repaired would have exceeded the cost of a new one, so I didn't do anything to it.
