    It probably means the hard drive died and it's time to take it back for an exchange. Don't worry, it happens. One of the inherent risks of hard drives.

    I once had a brand-new hard drive that I had backed up all my information to crash and burn just after I'd wiped my main drive clean. Good times.

    Sorry to hear about your luck. They should exchange it for you no problem.

    That menu looks funky... Judging by the menu, you might try clicking "Restore" on the main iPod screen in iTunes and see what happens.. but if it does work, I wouldn't want to risk something happening in the future.

    well the nearest apple store is the 5th ave one, which is 40 mins away by subway do i have to go to the store or can apple ship me a new one?
    edit: i just got off the phone with the store and they tell me the only way is to come all the way back to the store and return it, thats total bs! why cant i just send it to apple i dont mind waiting a few days.

    Dude...you have the pic to prove that it's jacked up. If you take it in, they turn it on and runs fine, show them this pic.

    I would go ahead, sacrifice the 2.5 hours there and back and get yourself a new one...one that will work. That way you have confidence your item will work properly for you :)

    Good, luck.
