yasmina, no, it will not work. the first thing I strongly suggest is that you disassemble your iPod. Use these guides to work on it. After you have it disassembled, clean all the parts with high grade isopropyl alcohol (90%+ would be perfect). You can follow this guide for the cleaning. It will work for your iPod. After the cleaning replace the battery and re-evaluate for any damage. If you can't, or don't want to do this, the least you want to do, is to not try to start your iPod. It may make things worse. Place the iPod in a bowl full off uncooked rice and let the rice remove some of the water. this will not fix your iPod, but it will help. Hope this helps, good luck.
