View Full Version : Noisy 80GB iPod

Dec 14, 2006, 12:14 PM

I have an 80GB iPod. It's great, but I keep feeling weird vibrations from the iPod itself when the hard drive is working. I had a 20GB iPod, and it wasn't as noisy and vibrating as this one. There are times that it can feel a little like a vibrating cell phone.

Does anyone have the same experience? Or should I take this baby for repair? I checked the hard drive itself, no problems were found in disk utility.

I can feel mine vibrating, and whirring etc... It's very noisy, but I think it's normal. Mine doesn't vibrate like a mobile phone, but the people who have picked it up and used it have said 'god it's vibrating!'. Normal, methinks...
