My iPad, I think it's an iPad 2, around 3-4 yrs old, just stopped recharging. I tried using different rechargers and it doesn't seem to help much. Is this just normal  for a device this old? Does anyone know what the problem could be? Is it worth it to try and fix it or should I just give up and start looking for a new one?

It's possible that the charging port has too much lint/dust. Take it to an Apple Store to be cleaned before giving up.

On a related product, I have the iPod classic 160gb just stopped working suddenly, it has a red X in a circle and doesn't do anything, been in the drawer for 2 years now, anything can be done or trash it ?

Always have the professionals look at it first. Ya never know, it could be a solveable problem.

I had that once with an old iPhone. He tried taking out the dirt & it didn't help. He took it to the back & used something called an ESD brush & that did the job.

They shouldn't. You could ask any of them to take a look at it. They all carry something on them. If they can't solve it you could make an appointment at the Genius Bar. That could take some time depending on how busy it is.

I've never been charged for it. You could make the reservation for the Genius Bar online.
