To start this out, I have a 4th Generation iPod (Click wheel black and white screen with 20g HD) that I purchased a few years ago. It has worked fine for the past few years, but recently a few of my friends began breaking. Oddly enough, I encountered a problem the other day on mine as well. When I plugged my iPod into my Xbox 360, I noticed that I could not play any songs, and that it froze the Xbox Dashboard. I originally thought nothing of it, but when I attempted to listen to my iPod, I noticed that it seemed to struggle to play songs, spinning the hard drive furiously, but never actually able to play the songs. I connected it to my computer and noticed that iTunes did not read it. So I went through the methods for fixing the problem (resetting iPod, enabling disk use, re-installing iTunes etc.) and nothing worked. I then attempted to go into the iPod using My Computer, but it only froze everything. I also noticed that the iPod seemed to repeatedly spin the HD, but seemed to not completely connect to any computer I tried it on. It also deleted all of my songs off it as well. So my predicament is, I've been trying to restore it, which I assume would fix it, but how can I restore it if I cannot connect it to any computer? I figured I'd ask somewhere before I sent it in to Apple to be fixed, since this would be my last resort. Thanks in advance for any replies.
