Madam Level 1 (90 points)
My fifth generation iPod is stuck on the startup Apple. I have tried this: "Putting iPod into Disk Mode" http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1363. Following these instructions I can reset, ie reboot, my iPod but it will not go beyond the Apple or into disk mode. Please note that I have tried every possible way (at least 20 attempts, including running down the battery) to get it into disk mode. It simply will not do it. My guess is that the hard drive damaged and therefore my iPod has reached the end of its life, ie not worth repairing. Can anybody offer any other options?

Thank you.
