Hi there, I've got an iPod classic with a 160gb hdd, but it seems as though there is a mechanical failure with the hard drive, as I can't format it, restore it, access it or move any files on to it; iTunes encounters these same problems. So, what's the cheapest way to repair it? The options I know of are: -->Ebay a replacement mechanical hard drive with a ZIF connector -->Ebay an SSD drive with ZIF -->Ebay a CF adapter and CF card. It doesn't have to be 160gb again.... I'd be happy with 60-80gb. Cheers, Vex.
