Bear with me, there is much to describe... So after i tried moving a couple files around on my iPod...it would no longer respond. the Copy dialog box would not terminate even if i command it to. The Finder becomes unresponsive, refuses to reslaunch and have to do a restart by holding the power button. I have some 3gb of important data on it, it will not let me copy the files to my desktop w/o it doing what was described above as well. The screen of the iPod would show a do not disconnect indicator, but something was wrong...the time remained the same! i reset (holding menu + select) and now the screen is blank but on, the screen is shade of gray. The drive on the iPod is spinning, but when trying to access data it will spin up and click, spin and click.
