ok, I have a 3G 30GB iPod that I have had for just under a year (10-11 months). Anyway, lately it has been having problems booting up when the whole unit turns off. I hit a key and it turns on, I hear the hard drive start clicking in, and I see the Apple Logo load. then the hard drive stops clicking, and its stuck on the apple logo, and it takes 2-3 resets before it finally loads. well today I reseted it a good 10-15 times and it wouldnt load. so I booted into diagnostics mode and ran a HDD test... which returned as PASS. so I ran a bunch of other random tests, then reset it. still didnt boot. I plugged it into the powerbook, and after 3 resets I hear the chrip, and its booted and mounted. Any ideas as to why its doing this? is there anything I should do? should I completely reformat the iPod? should I run an external diagnostics program on it? (norton, diskwarrior...etc)? Its out of warrenty, so I can't return it. PS. when it boots, it works perfectly fine.
