Just two days ago I invested in an iPod Classic 160gb. I was just skimming around on it without headphones and everytime I selected a song, fastfowarded or selected a movie I would hear a weird sound from the harddrive.. Something high pitch from the bottom of the ipod and was like a laser or high pitch sound. not like the harddrive whirring though which I've heard on friends ipods.. Is this normal? Sorry I can't describe the sound much better.:confused::confused:

Yup, completely normal. It depends on how old the iPod is.

Personally, I'd exchange it. I don't remember my hard drive based iPods ever emitting such a sound as you've described.

Mine did this too even though it was brand new. I sent it off to Apple and they couldn't find anything wrong with it. The iPod still does it though. Also FYI the model is a 2009 160GB.

Like I said my iPod did the same thing and after Apple diagnosed it with nothing wrong I got it back and just ignore the sound. It still does it but it hasnt affected the iPod at all.

What I meant by "it depends on how old it is" is what generation the iPod Classic is. I'm sorry that I made that notion unclear, but if you mean the high-pitched whirring sound every time you play a new song, then yup it's completely normal. If you hear anything different, feel free to make a YouTube video demonstrating the sound that you hear and us techies will diagnose it.
