whats wrong and how much is it going to cost me? Thanks to HMVs sale, i bought a load of albums i was meaning to buy for ages dirt cheap. Plopped them in me iMac... Some time later i had all my lovely files to transfer to the iPod. Tried transfering them this morning before work... and it was sloooow. Took about a minute for 3 files! So i cancelled and went to work. iPod was fine. Got home and hook up iPod... Kernal Panic and frozen iPod. Reboot.. connect iPod iTunes opens and starts trasfering about 4 files later /2 minutes later ipod freezes and so does iTunes. I also noticed this time a ticking noise from the iPod. Used the Apple iPod software reset, the whole time it was loading the software i could hear this ticking! then when it finished i got the weirdest thing i've seen on an iPod (see attached image) This was all the iPod would bring up, so i went into disk utility and gave it a quick format, software restored, got into itunes, set up iPod, trasnfered 6 songs and click click click.... frozen iPod and iTunes.. Now all i have is an iPod with the Apple logo stuck on it. Not amount of resetting or pluggin it in will rid me of it. I can also hear it wirring away to itself. I doubt anyone can tell me whats wrong so i'll just say... How much is it likely to cost me? does anyone know if Apple can fix it or if it'll be a replacement job..... why didn't i get apple care.
