    Should I be able to hear a "hum" or some type of noise when the iPod's drive is spinning? I only hear it when I put the iPod right up to my ear. I would assume the answer to this is yes.

    oh yeah...there was two questions but i answered one of them myself right after posting this. hence the edit.

    Yes, it is normal to be able to hear the hard drive spinning, as you suspected. You only hear it when it needs to spin up to load the nextt batch of songs into its buffer.
