Have you ever been going through your drawers and found an old iPod only to find that it wont boot up....sucks doesn't it? By old iPod I mean something like an iPod video remember those old things. Well i found my old iPod and I wouldn't turn on it would start to boot ( displaying the silver apple) then it would just die, you could feel the kick of the hard drive shutting off. I couldn't find anyone who could tell me how to fix it so I figured it out for myself.
