I am currently an owner of an Ipod Touch 4th generation. I see you are having problems with your Ipod Classic, so I will try to find a solution to your problem.
- What must of happened was, it just needed to be rebooted and it did it by itself?
- Was the battery charged?
Hope that helps!
If none of the above solutions work, can you please respond back ASAP as I will try to find another solution to your problem (This might even help others with the same problem!)
