Why is my 4th gen iPod touch stuck on the shutting down screen??
I've had my 4th gen iPod Touch (32 GB) for about 4 years I guess and I have had problems in the past with it. For example, when i try to crop a picture the entire iPod would shut down, another example is that when I tried to delete pictures the app would shut down. Now recently i accidentally left my iPod charging for two days and when I went to unplug it, the iPod went to the shutting down screen. It has been stuck on this screen for about a week now. I have tried everything, I have shut it off and it goes to the apple icon and then shortly after it goes back to the shutting down screen with the spinning dial. I have restarted it but to no avail still because it stays on the spinning dial. i have plugged it into the computer and still nothing. I have had people say to restore it but I heard that that resets it and deletes everything which I DO NOT WANT, I have many pictures with family, friends, pets, pictures from concerts, and sights from trips in the iPod and I am scared that now they are gone forever!! If need be I can go to the apple store but I'm not sure how much help they can do, I have tried all the tricks that don't delete everything. I really really hope someone can help me because I am now at a loss and am extremely worried that these memories are now gone. Please please help!
