    My mini failed me and is showing the folder icon and the sad ipod icon every once in a while and wont be recognized by my computer. If I replace the HDD inside with a CF card will that fix the problem? Or is the issue with some other hardware internally?

    I've tried to format the iPod, but my computer won't recognize it and neither resetting or forcing to disk/diagnostic mode are working. Just wondering if this is a sign of worse problems than a failed HDD

    just put in a 8gb, 16gb or 32gb CFcard and it should be fine, anyway minis with flat batteries fo for about $40 tops on ebay so just rip out the logic board if the CF wont solve it
