You may need a new hard drive for your iPod. Its allot easier to replace then you would think to :) If you go to the following web page there are a few video's on trouble shooting this kind of issue as well as instructions on taking apart the ipod and replacing a few of the items. Also below I have posted a step by step guide on completely disasembeling an iPod.

Top Case Removal Begin by using a flat tool to separate the white plastic front case from the silver backcase. You will need to stick your flat tool into the crevice, work it down into the crevice,and then pry up so that the casing separates. Apply enough pressure so that your flat tooldoes not slip and scratch your iPod!Continue separating the casing by gently prying up all the way around the unit. It shouldbe much easier to pry the casing apart after you get the initial corner started.

With the casing separated, grasp the top half (the part with the front bezel) and flip it over. Note that there is an orange cable in the top left corner that connects the iPodlogic board to the headphone ports. If you gently grasp the cable and pull, it will slide out of its connector on the headphone port module board.

Headphone Jack Board Removal Before proceeding, you must remove the top case.There are two t6 screws holding the headphone port in place. Remove both of these screws. You can now remove the headphone module.

Hard Drive Removal Before proceeding, you must remove the top case.Hold the hard drive up, and remove the black tape on the hard drive connector. This will reveal the hard drive cable’s connector to the logic board.To remove the hard drive, grasp the cable (thumb on top index finger onbottom) and gently pull the cable out (away from you and the connector)The hard drive will now be free of the iPod logic board.

Hard Drive Cable Removal Before proceeding, remove the hard drive.To remove the hard drive cable, hold the drive, and gently pull up on the cable.It should come out easily.

Headphone Connector Cable Removal Before proceeding, remove the hard drive.To remove the headphone connector cable, Grasp the cable, and gently pull up. It should come out easily.

Logic Board Removal Before proceeding, remove the hard drive and headphone connector cable First, disconnect the battery connector by grasping the cable and gently pulling up to disconnect the cable from the logic board connector. Remove the 6 black T6 Screws.
With the screws removed slightly move the logic board to the left to give more access to the clickwheel cable. Gently pull this cable to free it from the logic boardconnector.The logic board will now easily come free from the case. The LCD will still be attachedto the logic board.

LCD Removal Before proceeding, first remove:Hard DriveHeadphone Connector CableLogic BoardTo remove the LCD, grasp the green connector cable, and gently pull to free it from the logic board connector. It should come out easily.


Battery Removal Before proceeding, first remove:Hard DriveHeadphone Connector Cable Logic Board To remove the battery, use a flat tool to pry the battery up. It is held on with a lightadhesive, and should come up by using just a little force. Lift the battery out of the unit.

I have an ipod model a1199. i was wondering if you can use a newer ipod touch charger for it? and if not what kind of charger does it use?


Charge an iPod Nano Without a Charger
If you've misplaced or broken the charger that came with your iPod Nano, you might think you need to purchase a new one in order to continue using your Mp3 player.
However, there is a way that you can continue enjoying your iPod without having to purchase a new charger.
As long as you have a USB cord and a computer, you can charge your iPod without having the charger.

Locate the USB cord that came with your iPod Nano package.
It is the same cord that you use in order to sync or transfer music.
Plug the small end into your iPod Nano.

Plug the other, larger end into your computer's USB port.
Choose "Do Nothing" when your computer presents the dialogue box to let you choose what to do with the hardware or USB connection.
Leave your Nano plugged into your computer for at least 4 hours to charge.
Unplug your iPod Nano when charging is complete.
Charge an iPod Without the Charger
Many iPod owners purchase a charging unit that plugs into a standard wall outlet to recharge the iPod's battery.
However, the iPod wall charger is not included with new purchases, so consumers must either purchase a separate charger or find a way to charge their iPod using other means.
Here's a simple method to charge your iPod using your computer.

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod.
Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC computer.

Open the iTunes program by clicking on the icon in the Dock on a Mac or using the Start menu on a PC.
Click on the name of your iPod under the "Devices" heading in the main iTunes window.
Click on the "Sync" button to synchronize your iPod with your computer data.
While the iPod is syncing, the power from the USB port on your computer will charge your iPod's battery.

Unplug your iPod from the computer once the battery is fully charged.

This one should be ok.

When i try to charge my i pod touch i just bought from some kid it doesnt show me its charging the cord seems fine what would be causing it not to charge but when i just plug the usb part of the cord...


If there is another USB cord around try using that. The problem might be with the cord.
If the iPod is still not charging, the problem might be a dying battery. If that is the issue, try to see if the iPod is less than a year old. Register the iPod and then go to the Apple Store. They might be able to replace it for you for free.
If not, you can go to the Apple Store to get it fixed for a fee
or
Bring it to the Apple Store and buy a new iPod for 10% off.

Just got an ipodtouch. when i turn it on the only screen is itunes. How do I get the menu


Download itunes onto your computer.  Now install it on your computer and close out of itunes.  Your ipod touch ships with the battery half charged so it won't blow up during shipping.  So plug the thing into your computers USB port to charge for 6-8 hours. Make sure your computer is plugged into AC power outlet and that your computer is powered down. Preferable you get an AC plug outlet charger for this thing so it will charge faster and not use up your USB port on your computer.  After full charge is reached you can unplug the thing from power outlet.  Now turn your computer on and open up itunes.  Now plug the USB cord into your computer and the other end of the cord into your ipod.  A window will pop up prompting you to create your nameo and account info.  Just follow the directions to set up new user.  The icon you see when you first turn on the ipod is telling you you gots ta plug this thing into your computer and sync the ipod with itunes.

2GB nano wont charge


Check this first. Both computers have USB2. Both computers are awake. iPods will not charge from USB1 or when the computer is asleep. Check the computers and cord is ok by plugging in another iPod. If the iPod is still under warranty, Apple will replace it.
