ipod classic help??

hi i have an ipod classic 160gb i bought for £15 of a mate as it was currupted. When i plug into the computer it will not be recognised by the computer nor itunes. I assume this is because its currupted. i have tried what apple said and tried putting it into disk mode but it doesnt work. It comes up with a circle with and x in it. Could anyone suggest any other ways off getting it to be recognised so i can maybe restore it and install a differnt software on it.

Thanks in advance

When you start it can you hard the hard drive spin up?

You can always replace the hard drive if it is kaput, get one off ebay, thats what I did.

Btw the banging it against something does sometimes work and you have nothing to lose.

just run something thin and hard along the long edges, it will pop open.
