Uhhh, I am seriously concerned. My ipod classic 80GB video froze up today, and then just completely shut off. A few seconds later it restarted and the screen was white with an ipod frowning on it and there was and exclamation point in a triangle. It won’t work now and is making an odd buzzing noise. What can I do to fix it or is the damage permanent? Thank you for your help.

I have an iPod mini. A while ago I left it in my car and I guess it got too cold and since then it doesn’t want to work. I’ve tried reseting it and nothing. I’ve tried putting it in disk mode an nothing. My computer doesn’t recognize it. When I put it to charge the battery just shows like it is a quarter full but it is froze it doesn’t have the animation like it is charging. so when I try resetting it just shows the apple and then the ipod with the exclamation point and shows up. Any other tips or should I just get a new one?
