    Ive tried charging with the usb cable and with the charger you plug into the socket an neither have got it working but i know the plug charger works as i use it for me ipad

    ok so maybe just a battery change, I have changed my 5th gen classic hard drive without too much hassle so maybe you can do it yourself, plenty of youtube tutorials.

    if you got it cheep in/from the States could be firewire.

    BTW only SOME 1st gen are being recalled; they haven't found my serial number as of friday!!
