    I definitely don't have it, I tried recording videos with Wi-Fi turned on and off.

    it only seems like a lot of people have it because those who do come here and become vocal about it. that said, mine should be here monday or tuesday, so i'll be able to contribute to the thread.

    Do a clean restore via iTunes.

    Users have already reported that it fixes the issue.

    Can you point me to a thread or whoever says this works? I've done a restore from the iPod and from iTunes with no luck.

    I believe fswmacguy is referring to our thread "Brand New iPod has Problems". I can assure you, after gone through three restores and one firmware restore, this does not solve the problem.

    I've isolated the problem to occurring when one is connected to an encrypted wireless, and recording. At this moment I don't know what to do, and would rather just turn off the wireless when I record. Since I'll most likely be out and about when I'm recording, I most likely won't be connected to any wireless. I just don't want to end up with a "worse" model, like the ones with light leaks, dead pixels, mushy home buttons, and battery drainage problems. So I guess I'll be keeping mine for now.

    I tried with wifi ON and OFF.

    ON: I heard two clicks in a 20 second video, not a persistent bg clicking noise, like the video posted above.

    OFF: No clicking noise at all.

    No ticking on mine. I copied the video to my computer and listened at the same volume as the youtube video showing the defect. NO ticking with wifi ON.

    I took a video with Wi-Fi on, amplified the sound, and I hear the frequent clicking, like four times in one second. When I use the tap to focus feature, the clicking gets faster while it's focusing.

    do you suppose this can be fixed by a software upgrade in the future?

    No clue. I'm not even sure if this is software related or hardware related. Maybe hardware because no news agency's screaming about this yet? If everyone's software was buggy, the media would be all over this in a second. I'm inclined to think ours are lemons because again, not everyone has this problem. (Or they're not listening close enough? Haha.)

    I had it but got a replacement ipod due to the screen coming up on the top left corner. No more clicking on the replacement. HOWEVER the screen issue (top left corner not flush and I am able to push it down ever so slightly) is the same on this new replacement.

    So far I am not impressed with the quality control of these new touches.

    I have a strange noise in footage shot from my iPod. The only difference is, the sound is not affected by Wi-Fi being turned on or off. The noise also only happens when I move the iPod or tap the screen, causing it to move a little. I can post a sample video soon, but I'm not able right now.

    EDIT: Here's a video. It's easier to hear in 720p. One of the few spots it's apparent is at the end when I was attempting to tap the stop button.

    Ugh, I just got a replacement unit for my previous iPod and this new one has this problem. Tried it with Wi-Fi on, started clicking. Wi-Fi off, no clicking. Should I make another Genius Bar appointment or not? I doubt this is software considering some people don't have it...

    Wifi on or off, I don't have this sound. Those who do, do you have an 802.11g network? 802.11n? Trying to think what could be causing this.
