240 gb HD upgrade - device must be booted every time?
I just recently upgraded my Ipod video(5.5) to a 240gb toshiba hard drive. After much much time troubleshooting this issues (motherboard compatibility, f-disk/diagnostic on the hard drive, and format/reboots) I have discovered the my ipod will not regularly turn on??? I always have to hold the center and menu button for for the ipod to boot. My music an language setting will still be available but I can't regularly turn on/off. The Hold switch does function but the ipod still has to be booted every time. Or after say 30+minutes of OFF/in-active use.
Also I did discover how to unlock the old 80gb mac hard drive. But sadly it will only work with unix/linux red hat. Mac can recognize it but will not be able to mount the full drive. (just the tiny partition it can see :-)
Please please please this is a great community and I know you guys have the answer!
Andrew, I am sure that you already know that the iPod Video doesn’t exactly have an on/off button. you know that you let it "go to sleep" As for turning it through a reset only, I have had the issue with one of mine. A new battery solved that problem. You can also try to use a different version firmware and see if that makes a difference. I get mine from here. not sure what you are asking about the 80GB Mac hard drive.....Hope this helps, good luck.
