oh no. :( It does indeed sound like an unhappy iPod.

I wonder, was it exposed to a lot of heat or moisture? the storage drives inside are only so durable. :(

If the above link's instructions don't work out, I think the drive feeling kind of down. Maybe it's warranty time.

Damn Toshiba, why can't they make more reliable drives.


Thanks mate, but I already know its dead. I just need to know about sending a pod for repair that has some unlicensed music on it (about 30% of my music is unlicensed).

I'm pretty sure most ipods that are sent for repair have at least some unlicenced music on them. Either Apple don't know (cos they don't check) or they don't care.

Use a fake name and a friend's address for shipping. You're in Taiwan, they can't extradite you anyway.

In fact, I got a brand spanking new replacement, so I promised not to get it scratched at all and got a nice cover for it. Yipee!

How would they know if a track is unlicensed versus one you copied legally from your own CD? They have no way of knowing for a fact that it is an unlicensed copy.

I was thinking that too, until I thought a bit more....

Tracks named "download.ru-freemps3-yellow.mp3" are a bit of a giveaway, for example.

But like I said, I'm sure nobody cares at Apple.

I edit all tags with Music Match and remove all notes attached to each track. All my tracks are well catalogued in that way.

Well in that case, how could anyone know where you got your songs from?
