Broken iPod…

Monday, January 9th, 2006

AAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!

My baby has a damaged harddrive, at least that’s what it seems to be.

I cannot put more than 10 songs on it, then it reaches the damaged block and stops.

Boohooooo!

I really hope the built in iPod diagnostics will help me further with this one!

iPod diagnostics

Monday, January 9th, 2006

I dropped my iPod some days ago (aahhhh!!!) and tonight I experienced the first problems because of it, one of the songs wouldn’t open.

So I restored the iPod software, thrashing all the music on it and enjoy the fresh start. Then I figured that it would be nice if I could run some sort of hard disk scan, searched on the net and found the coolest thing; the iPod bhas uilt in diagnostics!!
On my 4G iPod I can enter the diagnostics menu by pressing "BACK" & "SELECT" button while the iPod restarting. It gives me several check, including a hard disk scan! WOW πŸ™‚
Here‘s a site with some more info!
