Have you tried to restore it yet? My gut feeling on this is that you have a hard drive issue. If you can, disassemble the iPod and get yourself a USB to ZIF adapter and see if your Hard drive will show up as a drive. Make sure that you have all your data backed up, unless you don't like it :-) Ultimately I that is where I would start my trouble shooting. If the drive shows up, try to format it and see what happens. Should the drive be working okay i.e shows up as a drive and formats okay, change your HDD cable. If that does not resolve it, you will possibly need a new logic board. But since all the other functions are working well, I would go with the drive. Good Luck and let us know how it is going. iPod 5th Generation (Video) Hard Drive Replacement
