compatible parts/logicboard and HDD.

This is just to confirm what I think to be true but if anyone knows different...I bought a 5th gen(video) ipod as a bit of a break. It apparently didn't power on. Someone had been in there before me..So I pull it apart, reinsert battery cable and LCD/HDD and it powers on but no backlight on LCD. I couldn't get to the diagnostic mode but it would go into disk mode but then would not restore in itunes error 1434. The HDD never made sad and dying noises so I was a little confuddled. Tried erasing the HDD using disk utilities but got a "posix" error.After a small mishap with the LCD retaining flap I have pulled everything apart and looked at the part numbers. It would seem that the logicboard is for a 6th generation ipod classic. Now then, if everything else in this ipod is for the 5th gen (ie back/headphone/battery/LCD and HDD cable) and yet it seems to power/charge and be recognised in itunes is there
