My iPod's screen has been cracked for 6 or 7 months now and I've been having lots of HD problems (not surprising). Usually what happens is the iPod will freeze and I hear the HD starting up, clicking, slowing down. This repeats until I either reset the iPod or it quits. This morning, I was doing my routine iPod whacking and noticed it wasn't working. The iPod is making a high-pitched ringing noise and does not respond to my historically-useful iPod Palm Strike (patent pending). Anyone know of any other bad ways to fix your iPod when it's not working? I've already tried shaking, hitting, bending, squeezing, and combinations of these.
