Long story short, I've brought an old classic out of the cupboard after giving up trying to fix it about a year ago.


  • It can only sync to about 25GB, then the sync icon on the screen stops, as do any of the processing items for sync.
  • It gives me the ever illuminating error -53.
  • I've done nearly ever possible thing under the sun. Including changing the harddrive settings.
  • The hardrive also likes to click, but it's done that since day one.
  • I've tried every flavour of windows operating system and supported version of itunes.


Any ideas?


Thanks ^_^

iPod classic, Windows 7, Windows 8
