Modified 5th Gen iPod stops at Apple logo but is recognized in iTunes
256GB SSD Flashpod Apple iPod Video 5th Gen Classic Flash Memory will not boot passed logo; logo stays on / lit. Makes no sound; no whirring or clicking or grinding. In Disk Mode recognized in iTunes. Can play songs on PC from iPod library that are not mp3 files on PC.
Capacity 239 GB - 77.25 GB Free - 160.16 GB is 20,419 songs
It remains continuously plugged into Niles home audio card. Shows charged battery.
Can it be the logic board, if it "works" in iTunes? Ditto for HDD.
I would prefer to not "Restore" but have erased and rebuilt song lists before.
I own and have dissected other iPods. I bought this one; as is, refurbed and modified. It has worked for 3 years. In Debug Mode - no errors. Hangs up at Accessorize FW - reboot. PC properties, scanned - no system errors. It is not found on PC or in iTunes except when it is booted to Disk Mode. I have ordered a replacement battery.
"Can play songs" = my music library is stored on external hard-drive. iTunes is used to export from external HD to iPod. Right now, iTunes will ask me to "Locate" "Recently Added" songs because the source external HD is not connected. Songs that can play are being "found" on the iPod. The mp3 files are only on iPod when external HD is not connected. Does that make sense?
Is dit een goede vraag?
