Replaced the hard drive now it won't power on
The HDD died in my iPod Classic 80 GB a couple years ago. After successfully iFixit-ing an iMac using instructions from this site (and a most excellent new set of tools, also from here!), I decided to go back to this old brick and see if I could get it working again.
I found an 80GB HDD on line for about $80, and followed the instructions from this site to replace the drive. The whole process seemed to go very well, but the iPod will not turn on.
If I do the lock/unlock/menu/select reset thing, iTunes will wake up and say "Waiting for iPod". But it never gets beyond that.
I've tried charging the device for several days now.
I'm loath to open it up again, given how tricky that is. But I will if it seems like checking connections might help.
Questa è una buona domanda?
