To be fair it wasn't working for two years and all of a sudden I got it working by using the  "drop it" technique. I then wanted to reformat the hard drive and restore it so that I'd have a new iPod. Unfortunately I get an error when I try to format it using windows, I downloaded the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool and it took about 4 hours but it completed without errors. So I thought it would work and had fixed whatever was wrong, but when I restored the iPod and started trying to sync music I can still only hold about 2.4 Gb of music, even though its a 30Gb iPod. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you to everyone in advance.
