Chapter 10. Troubleshooting Your iPod > Opening the Third-generation iPod

Opening the Third-generation iPod

The second- and third-generation iPods are tougher to crack (and easier to damage) because the metal back wraps around the ports. If you wrench away the back plate improperly on a third-generation iPod, you could break the internal connections to the data/power and audio ports, thus turning your iPod into a very expensive paperweight.

But being the kind of person who, seconds after unwrapping the latest digital gewgaw, wonders what makes it tick, I understand that some of you won't be satisfied until you know what the inside of a new iPod looks like. Fine. Allow me to save you the trouble (and risk) of opening your musical pal by taking you on a tour of the third-generation iPod.
