Off the top of my head, it sounds like your replacement board may be defective. However, we need to rule out the drive itself before making that judgment. You will need an external hard drive enclosure used for connecting 2.5" PATA (IDE) laptop drives over USB. Place the drive in the enclosure, plug it into a computer, and see if the computer can address the drive. Next, if you don't have anything on the drive you can't afford to lose, then try formatting the drive as a FAT32 volume (note: This is not the native filesystem for the Nomad, but it will prove that the drive works). Next, place the drive back in your Nomad and see if your player will boot into Emergency Mode. If it does, then select the Format option. If that all works, then you will need to reload the player's firmware, as this resides entirely on the drive.

Let me know how this all goes.
