    i thought id post this, just i case some body out there is in the same position.

    A while back i dropped my iPod, it was Dead, i tried rebooting the baby (reset) but according to a few web sites that i searched for help, i had killed the Hard Drive.

    it sat on my desktop for over a month, gathering dust, and then tonight, excited about the new iPod, and its video capabilities, i got sidetracked as you do, and came across a website i had not seen before, i started to read and came across this thread....

    Although the reset didn't help revive my ipod, I did get Indiana Jones on my ipod and took the case apart as per the instructions listed on this site.
    The battery was still connected to the board, I disconnected the battery then reconnected it. Works again!

    :eek: well i followed the following instructions

    and straight up it worked!!!!!

    before you chuck it out or send it off for repair try the above method, it might just work.

    If I didn't have warranty on it, i'd try this out. Since I have warranty, though, I wouldn't want to devalidify it by opening it up myself.

    I opened mine up to install a higher-capacity battery...but then I am a lunatic.
