I'm unable to boot my ipod at all. I've tested holding menu and center buttons and other combinations said in manual etc but nothing helps... its just keeps rebooting and loops... 50% of the times it starts loading rockbox... but exactly when the rockbox logo comes up you can see a usb-cable picture(this flashes by extremely fast) and it shuts down and you can hear the HDD head returning to its original position which makes a click...
I've havent been using my ipod much lately and it has run out of battery and thereforce(?) it doesn't boot... i have no idea why
.. last time i used it was during last summer (yes i know its long time)... and i used it only for a week or so... Please note that i have an old rockbox version since i haven't used the ipod much in along time in general either
but now i need it again so please help me to boot up my ipod. All help appreciated!!!
Right now im trying to charge the battery but it kind of charges for a minute or so but then tries to boot and loops there and the hdd clicks alot... im noit sure if this is really healthy for the ipod?!?! so im not sure if i would continue with this?(im not charging throught my computer).. also my computer doesnt find the ipod...
