So my iPod 30GB 5th gen Video has died. Specifically it shows the sad iPod icon and the hard drive makes this clicking noise when I try to start it. It doesn't work in disc mode and isn't recognized in any way by the computer. I've tried a lot of things to fix it, from putting a folded business card on top of the HHD to freezing it and of corse banging it against a table. Its "symptoms" haven't changed through all of these attempts. I haven't brought it to Apple, and the closest store is one and a half hours away. So I don't really see that as an option. Also I really don't want to buy a new iPod, mostly because of money. I do have two old PATA PowerBook HDDs, one from a g3(80GB) the other from a g4(100GB). I was thinking of maybe trying to use one of them as a HDD for my iPod. Any thoughts on this slightly crazy idea? Any other suggestions as to what I should do with my iPod? Thanks for your input.
