    Hi there,

    So i have a 4th Gen iPod with a bad hard drive (its been dead now for about a year). I finally bought another dead 4th gen that had a good hard drive and went to switch it out. When i pluged it in, I couldn't get anything to work. It showed the begining of the dead battery status and kinda froze. So then i switched out the battery and it came up, everythign seemed to work.

    But it wont charge. When i plug it into an AC/firewire plug, it doesn't register that it is plugged in. If i connect it to my computer, it mounts up fine and transferring music is fine, but it shows the power meter as the lightning bolt icon with a solid battery. I then ran down the battery for a while and plugged it back in and came down a few hours later and the battery hadn't charged at all. Any ideas on why its not charging? Thanks!

    -Alex
