  • Great videos. I've got a 30gig 5th gen that has the same issue, no data/sync over USB. Tested the data pins from USB cable to the motherboard and they are fine. Did you get any more insight into what the board issue could be that's preventing data/sync over USB? I'd love to restore this iPod that completely works otherwise.

  • iPods are much cheaper in the UK, you can get one for about £40-£50. Unfortunately they too are quite scratched up; there's no way of fixing that without replacing the back panel... Maybe demand in other parts of the world are different... I might get myself an iPod, as I have a Philips media player at the moment (back then, one of the only alternatives) and its not ideal. The software you have to use is a total nightmare, no drag and drop here. I also tried converting to SD card and it wasn't having any of it - though I did manage to replace the battery through my own knowledge (they don't sell batteries anymore, so I transferred the protection PCB to another bare cell I had lying around).
