Hi Everyone, I have a 5G iPod, purchased in late March or early April (I'll have to dig out the receipt). It's had a few obnoxious habits that I've not been able to diagnose -- Looking for anyone w/ similar problems and/or solutions. iPod software "hangs" regularly. On a relatively regular basis (usually after selecting a song, but before playback begins), the internal software on the iPod will stall for several seconds (or minutes, periodically). When playback finally begins, the iPod will often skip to the next song and/or reboot. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to this behavior. I can not reproduce it on-demand, but it happens enough to be a legitimate problem. iPod hard drive "chatters" constantly. It feels/sounds like every read operation on this thing is accompanied by an audible chatter (which can also be felt if the iPod is in-hand), presumably from the hard drive. I initially disregarded this as a "by design" sort of thing, but it's gotten worse as time goes on. I suspect that #2 is the primary problem and that #1 is a result of the hard drive failing. Any other insight? Anyone else with the same problem? Anyone with a solution? I've tried reformatting the iPod (both in FAT32 and HFS+) and that doesn't seem to help anything. I defragged the disk (while FAT32) and had no luck there, either. I suspect fully that this is a hardware failure and will be returning it to Apple soon (I just initiated a dialog w/ their support staff), but I'm wondering if I'm the only one having this problem.
