I've got an iPod with a broken screen, but otherwise the device has been in working order (suitable for a CD changer replacement for my car). I needed to reset the device to the factory defaults, but after running the "Restore" in iTunes, I haven't managed to get the device back up and running. The instructions for factory settings restore state that the device should to be plugged to iPod power adapter (not USB). Unfortunately I don't have one. I can hear the iPod HDD spin up when I click a button on it, but it doesn't get detected as an USB device (tried hooking it up to both Win XP and Linux 2.6.16-1.2115_FC4 -- nada). I was wondering if someone could tell me the exact procedure of finishing the factory defaults restore blindfolded -- ie. which buttons do I need to press and in which order to get the iPod working again. I followed the instructions at http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=60983 to step 9, at which stage iTunes asked me to disconnect iPod from USB and hook it up to a power adapter. Any help will be much appreciated. =) Even if I do need to go out and find a iPod power adapter, I would still appreciate the information on whether or not the iPod will ask for a confirmation for the factory reset, and which buttons I need to click to get it move on with the restore. Cheers!
