My iPod is bricked?
This iPod has been in my drawer for a year or two. Yesterday I pulled it out and connected it to my Mac, just to find out that it is dead. I kept it connected for a hour or so but no signs of life. The screen stayed blank and holding menu+center buttons didn't help. I tried charging with the power adapter instead of hooking it to my Mac, no difference.
Sure, it could be the cable or the iPod connector that's just not letting it charge, I'll try to find another cable, but if it's not then what?
Is this a good question?
