iPod mini, wants to be wall-charged, but won't react.

Howdy all,

ok,

so i updated my friend's mini and of course it wants to be plugged into a wall charger. No big deal, as I have one. But it doesn't recognise the wall-charger (and no, the wall-charger definitely isn't faulty).



the real downer is that the computer won't recognise it while the iPod requests to be wall-charged, so i can't restore it, or update it.



anyone got any ideas?



i know the battery on this mini is really pokey, and im thinking about replacing it, but i dont know if it will then recognise the wall-charger.



thanks for reading, i'll continue trawling the forums and the net for a solution, but in the meantime, if you can help, please speak up = )

    ok, i've failed to find anything.



    But ive thought of a better way to summarise the problem

    My computer won't recognise the iPod until it has been wall-charged, and the iPod won't recognise the wall charger



    Jeez, im in a bit of a pickle. The iPod is now in a state of the living dead, it can turn on, but it can't do anything. And it's not mine, it's a friend's (i borrowed it while my Shuffle was being serviced).



    Im no iPod newbie, but this has me stumped!

    No, see you're forgetting that the computer doesn't recognise the iPod. The iPod wants to be wall-charged, but doesn't recognise the wall charger. So i can only perform the first R (restarting the iPod, which just brings up the Apple logo, and then the wall-charge icon).



    I can't update, reformat or restore the iPod if the computer doesnt recognise it.



    thanks for the suggestion though = )
