You are correct helps if you read the entire instructions. So i followed and performed the manual test on my H/D and from what i know it looked OK
Retracts = 60
Reallocs = 0
Pending Sectors = 0
Yet i still have this locking occuring every couple of days.
I bought this classic because of the amount of music i wanted to store maybe i should go to the iPad Touch and just move my music back and forth with iTunes. Do you know if the sound quality is better on the Classic or the Touch?
Thanks for your responses.
