I just received my 60GB video! It needed a new battery is all. It was 6.99 for a 900mah that lasts about 6-8 hours on a charge, more if you turn down the brightness and set the screen to dim after 5 secs or so. So happy to have it back. Sure I could've just snagged an old Android cheapie (Android since many support MicroSD cards and a 128gb card is only 18.00 give or take) but the feel of using the old clickwheel iPods us just fun! Sadly Apple dropped support for them so I partitioned my 2015 MBP SSD and I stalled Yosemite so I could plug in the iPod and have it work. I still use a cheapie Android with a 128GB MicroSD in it solely for music and have it USB connected to my car deck and securely locked in my glovebox and it powers off and on with the car which is great. Then I navigate to the USB input on my deck and it pops up showing the phone and all my music. I do the same with my iPod click wheel in my second car. Both work perfectly. Definitely glad I bought a 9.00 battery and resurrected it from my drawer “the dead" lol.
 
Incidentally, my wife's 160GB click wheel, wheel quit responding to touch and she's been using it for years until yesterday, it didn't get dropped, wet or otherwise so I have a battery for it already and am breaking it open today to clean it up and see if something is just loose or….fingers crossed. Will update if I saved it and what it was. It sucks Apple quit supporting these in iTunes and MacOS. THEYRE STILL VERY CAPABLE devices!! There's workarounds as I've done but still….UGH! BAD APPLE!!! BAD!
 
 
 
If her wheel is shot I'll put my wheel in her iPod since it's larger in capacity and they're exactly the same except for storage amount (same year and model) I can't out her HD in my iPod because mine is thinner and won't accommodate the larger thicker hard drive.
