    Any iPod techs out there?

    I have a 3rd Gen Ipod. I've refused to upgrade to a 5th gen cause my old one was working perfectly. And after 4 and a half long years of functioning perfectly, no re sets, no re-boots, no re-formatting. It finally just died.



    It froze up, so I restarted it (hold menu and play) and when it booted back up there were no songs. Tried re-formatting it through iTunes and it gave me an error. Tried booting in diagnostics mode ( hold prev, next and select). Ran the HDD scan and I got this.

    "HDD SCAN

    START
    QUIT TEST

    HDD FAIL"

    I then tried the "reset" option in the diagnostics menu and I was given another error. Is it a lost cause?





    P.S. If you can help me, please do. But this is NOT an invitation to smash Apple products, as I know some of you are prone to.


    Thanks in advance!

    I'd say its probably time to get a new one. Its not worth it to try fixing a 4 1/2 year old device.

    Yeah I know. But we've had some times man. Me and Roxanne, as I named her. We've been through so much.........It's just so hard to let go



    No but seriously. I'm waiting for the 6th gen rumors to be confirmed. I don't want to drop the cash for a 5th gen if it's going to be outdated by the summer.

    Seeing as it's the 5th gen already, even if you wait, it still will be outdated later...

    Just buy a new one, or just buy a new HD and Stick it in there. I would void your warranty, but I assume it's over anyway. Unless you think Rozanne lives in the HD....

    Yeah I was thinking of looking for what HD they recommend on one of those sites and then looking for it on NewEgg.com. Usually cheaper on NewEgg.

    After 4 and a half years of carrying an HDD around in your pocket, yes, it's probably dead. I'd advise you just go ahead and get a new iPod if you have the money. If not, just save, I'm sure Apple's got a 6th Gen coming out soon anyway.

    www.ipodhowtovideo.com

    Theyve got tutorials on how to replace things on there. I replaced the face plate of my iPod Video. Easy as pie, but it's risky.

    Enoch was right.
