Is my Kenwood head unit wrecking my iPods?
About a week ago my music just stopped in my car. I tried skipping tracks and resetting the iPod but wasn't able to get anything back. When I pulled the iPod out of the glove compartment it was making audible clicking noises. I attempted a restore through iTunes and can get nothing but the red "x" with the iPod support URL. So I took it as a loss.
Went to the local pawn shop and picked up another classic (which was loaded with good music; jackpot) and loaded everything up. Two days later its the same thing. Big red X and audible clicking.
Does anybody know what's happening to these iPods and if there is a way to repair them?

Sounds like you have iPod Classic's which had a hard drive inside. I would bet that the drive has bad sectors in it from the heads crashing - possibly from lots of bumps while driving.
I have a Classic in my glovebox as well hooked up to an Alpine unit and it's been there for several years and I am surprised it's still working actually.

Spinrite along with a CF/IDE adapter and open the iPod and get the HDD out. Connect it with the adapter to a PC and run Spinrite on it. There is a testimonial on GRC.com about this being a success.
Spinrite is typically run on normal computer HDD's, but can just as easily fix an iPod HDD.
I use Spinrite all the time to fix HDD's and maintain them.
