    Is there any other option for this?

    I take it you tried the DFU restore route too. My understanding that was that a low level format should release all pending sectors to the reallocated list, up to the size of the area set aside for reallocations, however I don't know how the size is determined.

    I'm doing a surface test on the ipod via easeUS will it fix the bad sectors?

  • turingtest2 Level 9 Level 9 (53,735 points)

    It should allow unreadable sectors to be reallocated, assuming there is enough room set aside and they are not currently "in use". A reformat should mean that nothing is "in use".

    I have a Ipod Classic 160GB my friend dropped it in coffee and then shook it -_- but it turns on the shows a red "X" with a circle around it and then turns off and does the same thing but I tried to reset it but the red "X" still pops up I tried to put it into disk mode but that wont work either I also plugged it into my computer and put it into DFU restore and then my computer reconized it and said It was recovering my ipod but then when it was done the red "X" pop up again what do I do?

    I suspect you need to write it off. The coffee will most likely have led to internal damage from which a spontaneous recovery is unlikely. That said you could try putting it in a bag of rice for a week. Some people have had success where the rice acts as a desiccant and absorbs moisture, and they were fortunate that no secondary damaged had occurred.

    One question, if i downgrade the software it won't help right?

  • turingtest2 Level 9 Level 9 (53,735 points)

    Not at all. You're looking at a hardware problem.

    Hello TT2,

     

    My iPod Classic just crashed on me last night. I ran it in trouble shooting mode and these were my results,

     

    Retracts: 35

    Reallocs: 16

    Pending Sectors: 72

    PowerOn Hours: 6833

    Start/Stops: 61,980

    Temp Current: 25c

    Temp Min: 59c

    Temp Max: 249c

     

    This is the 2nd time I've ran it in trouble shooting mode since last night and the numbers have not changed. My iTunes will not detect it, and the computer freezes when I try right-clicking the drive under 'My Computer" so I cannot format it. I tried formatting the iPod using CMD.exe and a 3rd party program, and every time I do so I get the same message stating the drive is too small. Is my iPod pretty much shot?

  • turingtest2 Level 9 Level 9 (53,735 points)

    The max. temp is way over the recommended 50c, but may be an aberration. The realloc count isn't that high, but unless the pending sectors get cleared the device won't work normally. If you've not already done so try the DFU restore mode from Corrupt iPod classic,

    Unfortuantely, I already gave the DFU restore a shot

  • turingtest2 Level 9 Level 9 (53,735 points)

    Know anyone with a Mac that could try reformatting it on that?

  • ismegamanthere Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I do! Guess it's definitely worth a shot.
