80GB iPod died.. then rose again!
Mid-song, it just stopped. No power, no disk error, nada. I looked at replacing it with something new, but my iPod 5th gen is great for working and simple to use. And for $10 plus shipping? No question.
I was intimidated the myth Apple stuff is hard to fix. Maybe the new iPad, but not my iPod. I followed the iFixit instruction, and was done in less than 10 min. Next day, suggested site to my buddy.
Take it slow. Read the instructions.
