Right to Repair

Since you were capable of using it for a couple of hours, I seriously doubt that it is installed wrong. First off the 3rd gen needs firewire to charge and does not charge with USB. Your cable may fit and all but USB charging is not supported. So that should be the first part you need to do. The other possibility is that you are having dock connector issues. Clean it out and check that the pins are not bend or corroded. This model iPod is actually a lot less prone to any issues than the models after it. Yes, iTunes supports this model without any difficulties. Hope this will help you all to at least get started. Good Luck
