Can a 40gb+ really be installed into a 20gb iPod?I am getting conflicting information on this. I am just wondering if I can install the 8mm (drive height) drives such as a 40...
Answer to: iPod starts for a few seconds and immediately turns off again?This is likely a battery issue. I have the same iPod (minus U2) and everytime I go to dust it off after months of no use it does this exact thing too. What I believe is happening is that the iPod battery (when it is fully discharged and/or no longer holds charges) is drawing more than what the drive needs to spin at full speed. My iPod does this but eventually after 10-20 restarts the battery gets enough of a charge to maintain power and the iPod starts up. It could be that your battery is so far gone that this will not happen, and in which case you should buy one of the batteries for 4th gen iPods. Good luck!
