I have an iPod Classic, that is experiencing signs of hard drive failure similar to my old 80GB that died a while back. It is a 160GB Gen 7 Classic and upon the least sync to add 4 new songs and to include a new playlist, it will play 2/3 of one song, skips one, and the other 2 play as normal. On the new playlist, it will skip certain songs all together. So i have a couple questions. 1, Am I correct that this is hard drive failure? 2, Is there anything I can do to have the Apple Store near me repair/ replace it? I understand they won't repair it, but is there an out of warranty replacement option that I can use? I would prefer to pay to have it repaired for their white refurb box ones rather than do it myself just yet. Thanks for the help!
