    Am I a little paranoid or is this not normal. When I use my ipod, I can hear the hard drive making noises from a good foot from my ears. This only happens when I play a new song or movie. I know the hard drive is being used and as a result will make some noise, but I am worried that its making more than it should. Yea, hopefully I am just paranoid after buying a 400 dollar gadget. Thanks

    Yeah, that's normal. If you can hear a bit of whine and a bit of chattering from a couple feet away, it only means that you haven't blown your ears out yet.

    I dropped my 2G 20GB iPod. The noise from the HD can be heard from 10 meters away. The newer iPods, notably the 4G that I have, are really quiet. I can't hear it from more than a few feet away. If you can hear it from across a room, you should start worrying.
