What's wrong with my Ipod Mini ?????

4GB Ipod Mini, was working fine and now suddenly it's not

It Just shows the apple then go's to a screen with a pic of the ipod with a sad face and triangle next to it and the web address...apple.com/sup…pod

I have tried the pressing centre button with menu button together and it go's blank then shows apple.
But still the same as above.

Any advice welcome ......thanks

Might be in need of a restore off the itunes / apple site or it may well be knackered.

Google 'ipod sad face' there will be about 1 billion replies.

The hard drive has died bud. I used to repair/sell parts for the ipod mini and Im afraid the only way to fix it is to replace the hard drive, but its probably not worth it tbh.

So you think this would sort it out @ £15 from fleabay (item 200329770913 )

or even cheaper with good feedback for selling mini hard drives (330336996585)

Yes these will work. With the cheaper one you listed you will need to take the harddrive connector off your old hard drive as it doesnt look like it comes with a connector. It is quite an intricate procedure taking your ipod apart and you have to be especially careful when removing the click wheel connector from the motherboard. If you go ahead and decide to fix it yourself i can email you a detailed description of how to do the procedure.
