Red x in circle after replacing hard drive, logic board?
Well, I replaced the hard drive, logic board, hold switch, LCD screen, and battery on my 80g 6th gen classic. Basically everything. The only carry over piece is the click wheel. I even swapped outer shells. This was necessary as my replacement hard drive turned out to be a 'thick' version. Un like my previous 'thin' version). It powered up which was most impressive as this is my 1st attempt at repairing any iPod. The hard drive appears to spin up nicely as I can hear a nice smooth whir when it 1st powers up. However, I get a red circle with an x in the middle and iTunes won't recognize the iPod. I can't get the iPod into disc mode either. Does the battery need a good charge 1st before attempting to put it in disc mode and connect to iTunes? I'm feeling a bit discouraged at the moment. How do I fix this? Sorry for the long winded question, but I wanted to try and be as descriptive as I could.
