    Hi guys recently purchased a second hand ipod 5th gen 30gb in hope of fixing it up but have found it to be more difficult than first presumed. I have gotten the device into disk mode and connected it to my pc which then makes the device continue to cycle between the well known sad face and apple icon. I have also just installed a new hard drive which i fought would fix this problem.

    All suggestions would be appreciated
    Thanks

    Try getting into diagnostics mode. There is a test you can run. That way you can see what exactly is up with it.
