    about a fews years back i bought an iPod(scroll wheel) from ebay. this is the original iPod. just recently i tried to turn it on but it wont power on so i plugged in the firewire charger. it turned on but did not charge and all i see is the folder icon with exclamation in it.

    is there a way to restore it? can i connect it my windows 7 pc? i need a firewire adapter or a card or something? im not sure. did the hard disk just failed? what about the battery, not charging anymore?

    thanks for any help.
