maybe it's the charging board itself or maybe you have to reinstall the firmware after replacing the battery. i don't know. sometimes these things have to be reset

I was thinking that too, as a second battery was provided but it still does not work. I am at the point where it is beyond my ability and will send it to some place to have it fixed.

"I have the exactly same problem :(

Hard drive is not spinning and my computer is not detecting the iPod.

I've already replaced so many things, don't tell me my motherboard is broken :(

Everything was fine with old battery (I threw it away, unfortunately).

I also replaced the hard drive but reinstalling the old one did not help.

Any ideas?"

No I need to buy a new logic board for it I think.

"If you replaced the battery and are now seeing this error, the 'new' battery may not actually be new, if it was sitting in a warehouse for years the battery would have gone completely flat and the lithium went bad.

When a battery drops below a certain voltage it cannot be recovered and needs replacing. Lithium batteries should be stored at around 50% charge, and recharged every few weeks to keep it in good condition."
