I looked all over the internet for help with my problem, but i keep getting the same answer. I have an Ipod Mini that i got from my cousin, no idea whether it is first or second gen mini. but all that is showing up is the apple logo. they said to reset it by holding the center and menu buttons, but the apple logo just keeps showing up and staying. My laptop is not recognizing it and i cant tell how close it is to dying. Anyone have any advice?
