Can't restore my Hard drive.
My iPod was displaying the sad face icon so I replaced the hard drive (20gb). Everything went fine when the new drive was in no more sad face (folder icon instead) and the iPod was now recognized by Itunes and Windows. I went to the restore process and was told to plug it into an external power adapter and the iPod shows a picture of a wall outlet and plug on it.
I have a plug adapter that lets me plug a USB cable into it so I tried that, nothing.
I tried a car charger (I-go with iPod tip), nothing. Even went to radio shack and they tried an iPod wall charger ( not apple brand but an after market one) and still nothing.
Now the iPod is not recognized by itunes so I can't try a restore, it isn't recognized by windows so I can't reformat the drive, and it appears I can't complete the restore process.
can anyone help????
p.s. no luck getting it into disk mode either.
