My Classic has been a pain in the butt ever since I bought it. Having had similar experiences with a previous Classic, I just took it as it came. But just in case it is a hardware issue, I thought I'd follow it up before the warranty expired. My problem is that the wheel frequently doesn't respond to input. So I can be scrubbing away for what seems like a couple of seconds before it actually notices. This - i.e. my post-5G experience - has completely killed the HDD iPod experience for me. These days mostly I use Smart Playlists and one of the flash machines (the Nano for example is a lot more "old-iPod" responsive) so it is not something I have to put up with that regularly. So. A demonstrable fault which you guys haven't encountered, or something that happens with all Classics? Thanks.
