    I had that happen one time with the iFlash mSATA, I was able to charge up the battery and then connect to iTunes to do a full Restore. I was relieved when there were no further problems, and I replaced the old battery with a new 2000mah version which solved that issue.

    It my experience, if an iPod crashes, times out, dies, etc while syncing, you pretty much have to restore it and start over. Guessing the database doesn't finish writing and it bricks it, but every time that's happened to me a restore has fixed it.

    Mentioned umpteen times in this thread already, by the way, going back a couple of years! Probably those posts will turn up if you search for 3000mah.

    They work (usually), but definitely not 3000mah. Possibily a little higher capacity than the 1900/2000 ones owing to being a little bit larger volume. Slightly trickier to fit in.

    Awesome. Thanks guys. Once the new battery gets here I'll try the restore. I couldn't get it to work yesterday. Couldn't even get the iPod to be seen by iTunes or the computer. I know a new SD card would fix it so in the end, I'd rather the 256GB SD card die then my logic board. Ordered a standard 850mAh battery. Will eventually get another 2000mAh one. But the first two I ordered a few years back were messed up. Well one was messed up, the other never arrived lol.

    Can you put the original hard dive back in and reformat the sd card externally? Will help troubleshoot or reassure you that all is ok.

    If you put the SD card in a reader and it doesn't show up in windows explorer, try Disk Management or AOMEI, or even the SD card formatting utility. I've had a few microSD cards that have been corrupted in devices (not my iPods) and needed to be completely repartitioned/formatted before explorer or another device would accept them.

    Good news! Recieved the new 850mAh, slapped it in and the iPod fired right up. I havn't plugged it into my computer yet, but it was at least able to boot into both Rockbox and the apple OS!

    Definitely great news. And I'm going out of town for a month so it's nice to have my whole collection at my fingertips. I'd rather travel with the 256GB iMod then my AK100.

    EDIT: Plugged up the iMod into my computer and it worked like a charm. Didn't lose anything, system saw it. All my music still in it. I was able to sync it to add all my new music. Definitely relieved!

    Hi! Excuse me, I missed your post.
    No, no much hiss/noise.
