Can I use old logic board as Zif-USB adapter for HD?

Text:

I have an old iPod 5Th gen video logic board w/ a damaged battery connection. I also have several 1.8 iPod HD's I'd like to re-format, chck for disk errors with my PC. I can get a zif-to-USB adapter but I thought I might use the old logic board with the HD attached via the ribbon connection through the logic board charging connection, which would be to my PC USB port. This may be a stupid question but here goes anyway. TIA for any answers.
