@black99jack - If it is a sad apple logo then it is having trouble loading the OS. you will need to restore it in iTunes or see if iTunes reports any other errors such as a bad hard drive.

@markus - i'm not sure what you mean exactly. You are trying to copy songs over to your iPod and it gets that error or are you trying to play the songs on your ipod? I'd try a restore first to rule out a software issue.

@rebecca-mine did the same thing, smack the right side of it against your right palm, and it should turn right back on. apparently there's a problem with the hard drive arm inside getting stuck and doing this unsticks it. hope this helps!

@rebecca - that is typically a hard drive issue. It can be corrupt, disconnected inside, or dead. try restoring it in itunes first.

@Dave - the 40GB drives were slightly thicker than the 20GBs, so you'll usually need to replace the back case as well.

@salinko - that is typically a problem finding the operating system. your hard drive could be corrupt or dead or even a logic board problem. I'd try to sync it up to your computer first and do a restore. If it won't get that far, you can try putting it into disk mode and see if your computer can see it. After that, it probably needs a new hard drive.
