    I know old thread but did you ever get this problems figured out? or just toss the iPod aside?

    My old 3rd gen 40GB iPod also has a HD issue.

    Spins ups, clicks a few times and then spins down - and repeats the sequence until the battery runs out.

    I found a web site that sells new HDD, £35 and £8 for a new battery.

    But, sort of strapped so can't afford the repair.

    I miss my iPod :(
