    my older 40 GB iPod shows a folder with an exclamation point, and the computer won’t read it anymore, this all happened right after I downloaded the updated software for iTunes, i’d been running the old software without ever updating it … 4.something, maybe? I don’t remember for sure. Any ideas about how to get my iPod to work again? I can run it in DATA mode, but the computer still won’t read it and I can’t get it to turn on.

    Quote: “Minimum order quantity 50pcs of each item”

    rip off unless you know where to unload the other 49 headphone jacks.

    Quote: “Payment is T/T ( Bank wire transfer or western union )”

    which means there isn’t a security on it and you may never see it.

    good luck searching them down and beating your money back out of them.

    Hi there. I have an Ipod colour 30GB. I accidently got it a bit wet and the click wheel buttons stopped working. I pulled it apart and dried everything out and all connections seemed good. Still communicates fine with computer, and can be turned on by flicking the hold swith on and off. But still no button response. Any advise appreciated.

    I’ve tried and looked at many ipod repair sites and came across iRestore Team

    They have probably the best prices for parts anywhere. They also do repairs so I sent my iPod video to get fixed. Needed a new screen. Was going to do it myself, but just had them replace it. Replaced the screen and sent it back to me. All for only $40. Not a bad deal.
