this might sound stupid but my sister gave me her old ipod mini, it's like the older version and i can't charge it whenever i plug it into my computer, so do i just have to get the seperate like uhhhh charger thing? or is there something else i can do?
Throw it out and buy something better.
JK, you got Itunes and the drivers installed? It should just work right off your computer. Unless its incredibly old and the batteryies screwed.
