I have important data on my iPOD and the FW PORT is dead. Can anyone recommend a service to replace that port so I can download the data?

You might want to try a force restart... just incase it's really not "dead"

Plug it in, hold down"menu" and "play," and you're iPod might boot-up.

yes could you explain how you know it's dead? it's just odd to pinpoint a problem to that particular spot, as there could be many other things... unless you've done extensive troubleshooting (or the port is visibly damaged)...
