Is it the Logic Board or the Disk Drive?
So my old-school U2 iPod now gives me the sad face. I have tried resetting/putting it in disk mode, to no avail. When I turn it on, the disk starts to spin, and then there's a click, and then it starts over again. Then, sad face. The guy at the apple store said it was probably a disk problem, and given the clicky noises that makes sense. The FAQ here, though, suggests that it is probably the logic board. Is that encompassing the disk drive? I guess what I'm really asking is how do I not waste my money? Either the board by itself or the disk drive will run me about $40 alone. Which one should I really be buying, and do I need both? Should I start with one before trying the other?
Is this a good question?
