Ok, two days ago my iPod Mini was acting very wierd, it took aprox. 10 seconds before pressing the wheel buttons corresponed to any movement on the screen and it would not play any songs. It would display the normal screen for a playing song, display the play arrow, but the song would never move past 0:00.
I figured that this problem could be solved via a simple reboot, ie putting it in sleep mode, but it wouldn't respond to me clicking the Sleep option. So then I unplugged it from the power cord and figured that it would run out of power overnight and then when I recharged it the equivelent of a reboot would have occured. That did not, however, happen.
When I plugged it into the charger it did nothing. I left it for awhile, figuring that it needed to be charged longer to work properly. After about 3 hours I pressed the center button and the Apple logo was displayed, then a folder and an exclamation point, but nothing else. I then plugged it into my computer and my computer initially detected it as a USB mass storage device. The iTunes seemed to recognise it. However, all that happened was that iTunes stopped playing and sat for awhile before it restared. By that time the computer was no longer regestering the iPod, but it seemed like it was still charging and displaying the "Do not Disconnect" message. I unplugged it because it seemed that nether Windows XP nor iTunes identified the iPod as being connected. It still gave me the "Do not Disconnect" message after it had been disconnected.
So, again, I'm going to look over the manual and see if I can figure anything out, but if anyone has experenced this before, please tell me if there's a fix, I'm dying without my little Mini
