Did you charge the new battery?
Does the iPod work when it is not connected to a computer?



If you don't have a regular, good backup routine for your music and media you will eventually lose it all.
Hint: Using your iPod as your backup strategy is not a good plan.

Yes I charged it and when its not connected to the computer the only thing that comes up is a white screen saying that I need to connect my Ipod to my itunes and restore it.

Try resetting your iPod first. You can do this by pressing and holding both the menu and center buttons at the same time until you see the Apple logo. Then try restoring your iPod. You will need to restore your iPod in order for it to work.

You can also try using a 3rd party application such as WinAmp to restore your iPod. Just know that these 3rd party applications will probably only work if you have a 5.5G iPod and below, not an iPod classic. The 5.5G iPod has the plastic front and comes in either black or white. The iPod classic has an anodized aluminum front and comes in either black or silver. I am guessing that you have a 5.5G iPod since the iPod classic was released back in 2007 and I doubt you are having battery issues after just a little over a year.

I can't tell from your prior posts...did you try resetting it (hold the menu and select buttons together until the Apple logo appears)?

I think the OP tried resetting their iPod as I previously suggested that, along with trying to restore their iPod, and they said that they couldn't get it to work.

There is one more thing that can be done: try restoring the iPod using a different computer. There is really nothing else that can be done. Your iPod is busted and cannot be fixed if you have tried resetting it, restoring it on your computer, and restoring it on a different computer. You can return the battery you purchased and get a different one.

So do you think that it is the battery causing the problem? I have tried the following things on my Ipod: Reseting it, puting it in disk mode and trying to connect it, tryed on multiple computers besides mine, tried to get it to show up in another program besides itunes.
Is the ipod done or should I order another battery or can it still be fixed?

Well, let's look at things. Your iPod was presumably running fine before the battery replacement (aside from not lasting long) and it is not operating correctly now. One would think that the battery is causing the problems here. You can exchange your current battery for a new one and see if that fixes the issue. Your iPod is done if a new battery produces the exact same results. It might be a logic board problem or something along those lines but I don't know if you want to order new parts and try replacing things one at a time.
