Thanks for responding! ...I'm aware of the intricaciesintricacies and that it needs at least a 30 percent charge, and I left it to charge overnight but it just will not do anything. So, it will not charge when plugged into my Mac or any other form of USB nor does it appear in iTunes or on the desktop. Cable is good, I've tried three that already work on other iPods, even a car charger. For the most part, I've taken all the correct steps to insure that the iPod should work properly. It just does not and I kind of wanted to know if the problem is most likely the Logic Board, in which case it's probably more cost effective to replace the iPod given its age. But what about the hard drive?

I believe the iPod would show some sign of life even if the hard drive went bad. Does anyone know if that is true? Would I at least see a lighted screen even though it would not boot, or is everything solely reliant upon the hard drive? Should it still appear in iTunes if the hard drive is bad? Thanks!
