My family has the worst luck with technology. Especially my mother, who always seems to get one of the shitPods. Her iPod Classic, after several months of use, decides to have a hardware problem. iTunes and Disk Utility recognized it as FUBAR and won't let me do anything. The Restore option in iTunes tells me that it's so ****ed it can't restore it. The interesting thing is that Disk Utility reports it as being formatted as FAT32. That doesn't make sense. I believe the exact error iTunes gives is that it will only recognize Mac OS formatted drives. How could it work for a few months and then suddenly be the wrong format? I know my mom hasn't reformatted her iPod's drive at all.
