Ipod Hard Drive Replacement Fail!

Just put a new hard drive in my 5G Ipod. It's sort of working but sort of not. Should I return the hard drive? Is my Ipod finally toasted? [more inside]

Why does my Western Digital MyBook 100 GB HD insist on being recognized as an iPod?

My Western Digital MyBook has a folder on it called "iPod control." I have tried deleting it, but it always comes back. This hard drive has had this "feature" since I bought it." As a result of this, my Rhapsody software keeps thinking I have an iPod attached to my computer when I don't. I realize this hard drive is only trying to be helpful, but this quirk makes me want to beat it with a hose.

Hw can I transfer Mp3's from my Ipod to an external hard drive?

I have a 60gig Photo Ipod. In order to keep my computer's hardrive relative clean, I do not keep my MP3's stored in the Itunes library. All 9500 are strictly on my IPOD. I know I run the ris of losing all that upload work should my ipod get lost or break, but it was by choice. I recently bought a 250 gig external hard drive for the sole purpose of keeping all of my MP3's and important computer files on there....What I want to do and havent been able to figure out is, how could I go about transferring all the MP3 files from my IPOD to my computer and then to the external drive.

Can I mount my iPod's hard drive to a computer?

My [mac-formatted] iPod seems to have died but a friend of mine is convinced that he can resurrect the hard drive if we can mount it to a machine. We've disassembled the iPod (3rd generation) and removed the hard drive (Toshiba MK1504GAL, 15GB 1.8-inch embedded HDD, 50-pin) and now I'm planning to buy a Slimline CDROM to Desktop IDE Adapter to connect the little drive to a desktop enhanced IDE 40-pin connector. Has anyone successfully done anything like this? Is this total insanity?
