i tried it with my ipod and the results where

but i have noticed that when i connect it to the my computer sometimes it just breakes the connection, does that have to do with these stats too?

I just got my iPod and it was fine until I tried transferring music to it through iTunes, after a while iTunes froze out completely and I had to force-quit it and after that iTunes couldn't recognize my iPod anymore. I've tried formatting my iPod after that with all kinds of third party programs like Fat32Formatter but they all give me different errors even when my iPod's in disk mode. I don't know if these messed up my iPod hard drive even more, is there any hope to save it or should I just get a replacement?
If the device is in warranty (or is second hand but there is a returns policy) then yes I would try to get it replaced. Attempting to format the iPod's drive shouldn't have had any adverse effects. Unless the first thing you did was put it out in the sun to bake to get it to hit that 56c high then I suspect you've just got a duff unit.
I already checked with your steps and found this:
Pending Sectors: 8
PowerOn Hours: 837
Start / Stops: 44888
Temp: Current 37c
Temp min: 23c
Temp max: 54c
Since last month, my iPod starting to hang, especially when I shuffled the songs, and at 2 weeks ago, this iPod really hard to sync or detect at iTunes, it took long time until it detected and after that, my iPod really like to hang and back to default setting ....just this morning, i found my iPod lost all of its datas (my iPod 120 gb, last position around 39 giga free)..I already restored it to factory setting at iTunes and after the software update process was done, it still hard to detect at the iTunes and also at my PC....
Please help me through this big problem...
Thanks in advance
The start/stop count is on the high side, as is max. temp, but no reallocated sectors and only 8 pending suggests there may yet be hope. If any of those sectors happen to represent part of a directory or are where iTunes is trying to write out the library after restoring the device then that could lead to ongoing problems. Try the low-level format and staged rebuild method shown in this thread.
Woohhhooo...I already tried the low-level format and now my iPod already turned to normal...Thank you very2x much tt2
I want to ask one thing, to avoid this problem happened again in the future, what things that I had to concerned?, is this iPod can not store many usual?, or there are any else that i have to do?
