john, make sure that you connected all the ribbon cables and closed the clips to hold thew cable in. Also try to place the iPod in Disk mode and see if your computer can find the iPod as a drive. You can also try the diagnostic mode and see if where and if it hangs up. Also make sure that you dock connector does not have any bend or accidentally broken pins. Let us know what you get
