dropped now only sad face and clicking noise

80 GB: I dropped it pretty hard,It wont turn on , makes a clicking noise and eventually the sad face. It will not sync, there is also a message please wait very low battery that is not illuminated. Wondering how to diagnose? seems like hard drive but could it have a torn battery connection?


"most likely, the hard drive was damaged in the drop (the clicking is the drive trying to spin up or seek). The excessive attempts by the drive to work will run down the battery quickly, and its inability to seek will cause the other symptoms.

The way the battery is set and connected in the device makes it highly unlikely its cable (or any other) could work loose or tear.

Time for a new drive..."
