    Have a 20G ipod that was acquired back in the spring of 2005.
    The clickwheel is starting to go bad or not respond
    in that you have to press off-center on the quad control icons
    or the middle button several times,
    - or trying to turn it off is a roll of the dice...
    The right side icon doesn't really depress or click, but the other 3 up/down/left icons all depress & click ok. Also the center button doesn't really depress either.

    What options are there for getting something like this fixed ?

    Apple's repair program is basically - send it in and buy a new one :) I guess a potential solution is the refurb units listed on the Apple Store - and then sell this one as semi-working.

    Thank you Jah...I'm so Blessed
    You can be brave and open it up and check out whats making the click wheel freak out...unless you have your warranty then just send it to apple.
