    Die a natural death? Uhmm... don't think so, haha.

    If your iPod is having trouble being recognized by your computer try reseting your iPod while it's connected via USB. You can do this by holding down the Menu button and the Select button (the circle button in the middle) for about 10 seconds. The screen will go blank and the the Apple logo will appear on the screen.

    9 out of 10 times this will make the computer recognize the iPod. I use this trick all the time at work.
