I have a 15 Gig 3G iPod that I have had for 3 years now. This last winter the battery life got to the point where I couldn't stand it anymore, so i installed a new battery, a NewerTech model. That was about five months ago. This last week I tried to plug my iPod in to my computer (a Powerbook), nothing happened. The iPod will charge via the wall outlet and the computer cable. I have tried soft reset, using another computer, and booting into disk mode. This seems to suggest to me that one or more of the data pins in the dock connector is bad. Everythign else works fine so if I can fix this I'd like to. Any ideas.
