I need the help of you ipod geniuses! Okay so I got a 4th Gen. 40gb HP iPod on CL for $5... Well I cant get it to work, at first all it would do is show the apple logo and then the folder and exclamation point and shut off, over and over again! I tried reseting it multiple times and it would just start up again with the same symptoms. So then I tried putting it into disk mode but it wouldn't go! I connected it to my MBP and nothing is happening! Okay well after about an hour of playing it finally switches to the do not disconnect screen but it still isn't showing up in iTunes.... Well I opened the ipod up and disconnected the hard drive and battery for about 20 minutes and put it back together but same symptoms again but this time it lets me put it in disk mode! It showed the check marked screen and then I plugged it in and the do not disconnect reappeared and was blinking but now it is solid again and the only difference is it say that it is still in disk mode.... Any ideas as to what is wrong and what I might do to fix it? Thanks in advance!
