I have an IPod classic 5th generation (video). I followed these steps exactly. But, whenever
my iPod is plugged in it makes the sound, like the hard drive is trying to start but stops its
self. It stays in this cycle of trying to start until the battery runs out. Please help. My iTunes
is up to date. This is so weird because it was working just a minute ago and this has never
happened before. Please help me! I need music!
Do the iPod disk diagnostic, to check Hardisk health, refer to this excellent post by tt2.
Most likely the hardisk is dying, with high Realloc and Pending sector numbers.
