Wont connect to itunes

The iPod charges sort of ok. I will plug in the charger and after like 30s it will start charging. If i plug it into my computer itunes doesnt see it at all. Should I replace the logic board?

I swapped the mobo out for an 820-1975-A mobo. Granted the hdd was 60gb, it still worked and all 60gb were seen by the iPod. Connects to itunes and charges too

I just replaced the battery with a new one. It charges fine, just it wont connect to itunes


What cable are you using? Is it an aftermarket one?


Nope regular apple one. Its weird because the cable will charge and connect other ipods to itunes, but it only charges this one. It will not connect to itunes


And the charging port is soldered to the logic board. It would be cheaper to try the charging port, but not easier than changing the logic board


I have some spare logic boards. Should I try replacing it with a 820-1763-A or an 820-1763 board?
