ipod fell out of my pocket while working out and a 20 lb dumbbell fell on it, left a dent on the back, and it immediately shut off. Any way that I can salvage the music that was on there? It came from different libraries so it'd be hard to just get a new ipod and get all the same music back.

@Jimmy Murdock - if it is not being detected by the computer, you most likely have a hardware issue in addition to the software one. Your dock connector or logic board may be bad. You may want to get it professionally diagnosed at this point. It might not be feasible to repair.

My iPod turns on but the click wheel randomly stopped working. I have tried resetting, re synching, etc. no luck. Is it toast? Thanks

@danielle - I would try to sync it up to iTunes, put it in recovery mode, and see if you can restore it to factory defaults. If the restore fails, it is most likely a faulty logic board.

My iPod is stuck on the apple symbol and I can't get it to actually turn on. It charges and dies lol but it will not go further then the apple screen. What should I do?

@Alex - you would really have to open up the device and see what got damaged. Depending on several factors, it could be something minor or require a complete replacement.
