My 15-month-old iPod Photo (40GB) bit the dust today. While experimenting with early versions of Parallels a couple weeks ago, I had several Mac reboots during times when my iPod was connected and read "Do not disconnect..." Intermittently since then, my iPod's hard drive has been making funny noises. Now, when I try to reset it, it displays "www.apple.com/support/ipod" under a picture of a sad iPod with the exclamation point. I'm pretty sure the hard drive failed. Is there any point in my trying to replace it myself, or should I just get another iPod? As a follow-up question, if I get a refurb 60GB 5G iPod, will it do gapless playback?
