HD reg.error

Hi,Thanks to all who helped with my format problem...The store I bought
the drive at messed up the formating.(was not set to primary)...I did it
in swissknife and all was well or so I thought....except while
transferring about 60 gig to the new drive I noticed my pc was hung and
pretty much had to unplug everything and do a hard boot...when I turned
on the jukebox with the new 100gig drive and a ton of new music (not all
cause I had to reboot) all I got was the HD registry error I been
reading so much about...I tried changing batteries..., I did find a
loose bat. Connection on the opposite side from the pics on the site,
(usb) I seem to have so many problems I don't know where to
start. I'm about ready to shit can this thing and get a friggin
ipod...Now if I hold the on button it flashes but does not boot,
sometimes it goes back to the HD reg.error, When I try charging it the
lights blink red then green doesn't do anything...I put the old drive in
and actually got it to boot and show files, when I tried to play them I
heard a clicking sound through the music would play, then
I turned it off and back on again...same hd error...sometimes if I
squezze it a little in the middle it tries to boot...1 other weird
deal...when the batteries are out and I plug in the says
charging and lights up..also I think my new 100 gig drive is toast... I
took it out pluged it in my USB to see if it would show, and
nothing...doesn't look good I think I'm screwed....any ideas?
it one last ditch try before I smash this thing with a hammer

Thank You,
John McGowan
