I know old thread but did you ever get this problems figured out? or just toss the iPod aside?

My old 3rd gen 40GB iPod also has a HD issue.

Spins ups, clicks a few times and then spins down - and repeats the sequence until the battery runs out.

I found a web site that sells new HDD, 35 and 8 for a new battery.

But, sort of strapped so can't afford the repair.

I miss my iPod :(
