wont mount to mac or pc desktop or in itunes app.

Just installed new battery which charges fine and music and video already on 30gb plays fine. tried several usb cables that work fine with other iPod. also plays back when mounted into iHome radio. I cant upgrade or change the content unless I can get it to mount to a computer and itunes. no error codes etc tried reset with hold switch and holding menu and center button. you can hear drive rebooting somewhat noisey and apple logo appears before iPod menu screen appears,?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It could be that the logic board is fried- or perhaps a connection isn't fully seated in place.

everything else works, entering into diagnosis mode shows no error codes (compared readouts to a working iPod). what connection isnt seated? did not touch HD. all external switching and head phone works


That's pretty weird. Have you tried taking it to an Apple store? They might be able to help.
