    Windows Explorer says I have 0mb of used and 0mb of free space.
    Location : 0 ( Ipod )
    The device is working properly.

    Driver Date : 8/22/08

    Disk management says I have a 74.34 Healthy ( Active ) Drive that has one big RAW partition that I can't delete.

    INTERESTING DEVELOPMENT!!

    Somehow, my Ipod started working on its own, I think it's because of fiddling with it yesterday. It is no longer in "recovery" mode, it is now just "corrupted". However, when I attempt to restore I get ( 1439 )-The one that needs to have the drivers resigned -. The Ipod allowed me to select a language, and the menu works fine. When I ejected, the Ipod had a black screen, with a loading bar and the apple logo, then reset itself. This is a very good development.

    Any idea to \carry from here?

    I couldn't restore, or format even in this stage. Every attempt at restoring seems to work, I get the default Ipod games, which crash when used, causing the Ipod to restart and have me choose a language again ( the language between french and italian is missing ). The ipod says it has 0kb free, but the bar is not full. Would formatting with a Mac help, or is this thing toast?

    Can you now run chkdsk? Does HDD SmartData still just give an error? When you restore are you letting it try to copy all your data back? If so I would suggest making a small test playlist of say 20 songs and choosing to sync with those only until you can find out if it is behaving properly.

    Smart Data

    Retracts: 1296
    Reallocs: 4752
    Pending Sectors: 56
    PowerOn Hours: 154
    Start/Stops: 6071
    Temp: Current 26c
    Temp: Min 3c
    Temp: Max 52c

    ---

    I cannot restore, and it says I have to restore for it to sync. I think I should downgrade my firmware, because it is messed up on my Ipod.

    I dont know though.

    Chkdsk says its RAW, and it doesn't support RAW.

    The games crash, and it doesn't work with Itunes.

    I think we can probably assume the drive is toast. Compare the number of reallocs with mine above, plus the fact that it still has pending sectors to remap would suggest that the drive is just not capable of being read from or written to reliably.

    Well, thats a downer, but its better than people saying I am just too stupid to fix it. Any ideas of anything I can do to this, or is it absolutely worthless without the drive?

    I guess the only thing is to swap out the drive or buy a new iPod. A quick search found http://www.welovemacs.com/ipcl8sepa.html which sells an 80Gb drive for $170 but you might prefer to pay a little bit more for a brand new 120Gb machine.
