I do believe that my iPod is one of the latest victims of iTunes 9, because it is completely dead.

It was working fine the night of the 16th. But when I went to start it up on the 17th, absolutely nothing happened. I thought I had lost charge on the battery, so I plugged it in. Nothing happened. I pulled out my box and the little booklet thing in there and tried to reset by sliding the Hold button back & forth and then holding down Menu and Select simultaneously for 6 seconds. Nothing happened.

I've been reading threads around here that are similar in nature, but have not come across anyone having the inability to reset like my iPod seems to have. I'm a little afraid to hook it up to the laptop to try some of the things I have seen in the threads here.

So, does anyone have any other ideas, or am I now the proud owner of a $300 paperweight?

    This same thing happened to me earlier today. I had downloaded iTunes 9, tried syncing, and it wouldn't connect. The screen went dark and now it won't turn on.
