iPod is stuck on charging screen?
I have an iPod classic 160-gb (A1238). I replaced the screen, front housing, hard drive, ribbon for the hard drive, audio cable, and battery. The battery is a generic brand and I purchased it from the seller "batterygalaxy" on eBay. I noticed as soon as I turned my iPod on, it displayed the Apple logo. I got the USB cable and plugged it into the computer. The screen changed to "Charging, please wait..." and it wouldn't go away after giving it thirty minutes to charge. I unplugged it from the computer since the computer wasn't recognizing it and the iPod died. I used the outlet charger for it and the same thing happened after giving it 15 minutes but this time the screen changed back to the Apple logo as it was charging. This is not a bad battery, the seller tests their batteries before selling them. Can someone tell me what is going on? I am starting to think that it's something internal. Thank you.
I am worried that once I get past this stage, my computer won't recognize the drive since it's virtually new. How can I update the drivers for the IPOD to its current one using iTunes? Is it even possible if iTunes or Winamp won't recognize the device? Please let me know how to get my iPod working again. I'm almost about to give up, I've put in so much time into this project and it's been dragging out for a few months now. I want to listen to music again!! :(
Is this a good question?
