It's possible that the only problem is that the replacement disk-drive needs to be "initialized" for first-time usage. Or, it's possible that your Dell won't support your new _larger_ disk-drive.

Did they send you a disk-drive with _greater_ capacity than your old 60GB drive?
It's possible that they "upgraded" you, because they had no (small) 60GB disk-drives in inventory.

Take your Dell "System Restore" set of CD/DVD disks, and reinstall Windows.
The Windows Installer will "initialize" your disk-drive.

Can I replace orig hp ze1115 20GB hd w/60GB hd?


No the bios should be able to read the drive fine. The problem could be with the computer's motherboard. You should check to see if the original drive and new drive is detected in another system. Or you can try accessing them via an external casing / adapter.

30 GB iPod video restore problem


It sounds as if the hard drive is in a state that doesn't allow it to be properly used. This would explain why the iPod tells you it is corrupted and why iTunes fails to restore it properly. Does the iPod make a clicking noise when you try to turn it on? Try holding the backplate up to your ear to help you be able to hear it. If it does, that means the armitures in the hard drive are misaligned and can not properly read the hard drive platters (circular platforms that hold the data). This can be caused by dropping the iPod or excessive movement (such as a pocket, etc.) What you can try to do to fix it is holding the iPod in one hand, and making a fist with the other, and hit the side of the iPod a few times with some force but not enough to break it. If all goes as planned, this should knock the armitures back into place so that the hard drive can function properly again. If this doesn't work, you'll need to replace the hard drive in your iPod. For the price this would cost, you may want to consider just buying a new iPod. This method has maybe a 60% success rate; I used to repair iPods as a hobby with a little extra income and this is what I attempted with all hard drive issues.

My ipod classic 80 gb wont restore and keeps clicking


Listen to the iPod when it is connected to the computer. Do you hear repetitive clicking sounds from the hard drive? If so, your hard drive is broken. It's not too hard to replace the hard drive yourself. Here is an iPod Repair Guide that shows how to open an iPod. Parts are easily available on Ebay. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to iPad Repair

Ipod and External Hard Drive No longer recognized by PC


Depending on your iPod, may have to go see if there is a driver on-line to download and reinstall on your computer. Short of that, you may want to try a DEFRAG, or else try and go back to a RESTORE past RESTORE point and see what happens. Even try Virus Scan and Ad-Aware scan for Bugs that may have infected the file that reads your iPod. Try to think of any software updates you may have made shortly to the iPod not be identified...

Unable to sync ipod with computer


Actually I would try putting the ipod into disc mode and restoring it to see if it a software issue. I know computer/ipod stuff can be very frustrating sometimes too; so i posted a step by step on both the putting the ipod into disc mode as well as restoring it. Generally you will need to use itunes to add music to the player. I only know of super computer wiz's being able to sync using the media player. I also posted a how to on adding content to your ipod. I hope that this does resolve the issue your having. :)

If you do not already have itunes, you will want to go to the web page listed below and download it for free.
http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/



Putting ipod into disc mode http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1363 Putting iPods with a Click Wheel into disk mode Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.



How to restore iPod (ARTICLE NUMBER HT1339)
Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.

After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.

Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software.

The 4 possible restore options are: Restore Option

1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod. Restore Option

2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available. Restore Option

3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available. Restore Option

4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.

If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.

A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started.

When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).


Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).

During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.

Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.

After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

Itunes dont regocnise my ipod,so i cant update or add any tracks


Most of the time, your iPod won't come up because of a slightly dodgy hard drive. There's a couple of ways to solve this. The first one would be to get another iPod of the same model from a trusting friend or something, take the back off and swop the hard drives. Then plug the other iPod in. It will want to restore. Go through the restore and then swop it back. It should ask to restore now in your iPod. The second one is to buy a zif 1.8" usb hard drive caddy from ebay (should be under £10). Open it and attach your hard drive, wait for it to be recognized by your PC, then right click on it and format it as FAT32. Put it back in your iPod and it should want to restore. Or, buy a new hard drive.

Apple ipod displays only grey apple icon


this should pretty much do you http://www.ipodlinux.org/Key_Combinations

first reset depending on your ipod then quickly useing the correct combination force it into disk mode (already having it plugged into the computer sometimes helps) then use itunes restore utility to fix it itunes will say your ipod needs to be restored and that should do it for you

and one other thing sometimes it is hard to get it to stay in disk mode so try putting it into diagnostic mode then pluging in the dock connector then selecting disk mode from the options
