Distinct clicking, right? Your hard drive is about to crash completely. Other than the ticking, your problems are probably because the hard drive is not giving out the information it needs to because it can't. You need either a new Hard drive or a new player. once you get it all of you problems should go away.

A hard drive making loud noises will fail sometime in the near future. I suggest you backup the data on your IPod so when the hard drive fails you can replace it with a new hard drive and restore your data.

Red X on iPod screen, manual reset not working and iTunes not picking up iPod at all. Help!


check to see if your ipod is under warranty, if so take it to an apple store.

if i were you i would manually reset your ipod and immediately after you see the apple logo smack hard on its side on a sofa or padded carpet. If you do it right you will hear the hard drive make a weird noise and then make a clicking sound and your ipod should work

You have nothing to loose, the most apple will do for you is offer you a 10% discount off any new ipod (no matter how damaged the ipod)

listen to the ipod (hold it to you ear) as you start it up. if the hard drive spins fine (contant spinning of disk motor) you have a logic board or hard drive cable issue. if you hear an uneven, repetitive noise you have a hard drive issue . you can try to replace those compoments yourself or have a tech savy friend do it for you. there is an iPod classic repair guide. online that shows you through the steps.

Itunes dont regocnise my ipod,so i cant update or add any tracks


Most of the time, your iPod won't come up because of a slightly dodgy hard drive. There's a couple of ways to solve this. The first one would be to get another iPod of the same model from a trusting friend or something, take the back off and swop the hard drives. Then plug the other iPod in. It will want to restore. Go through the restore and then swop it back. It should ask to restore now in your iPod. The second one is to buy a zif 1.8" usb hard drive caddy from ebay (should be under £10). Open it and attach your hard drive, wait for it to be recognized by your PC, then right click on it and format it as FAT32. Put it back in your iPod and it should want to restore. Or, buy a new hard drive.

IPod won´t sync


Could be a loose hard drive connection cable on the inside. Could also be some corrosion on the USB connection. Try a different cable. Put your ear to the back and listen for clicking noises from the iPod - if you hear it you might have a warranty issue with a bad HDD. Attempt a restore. Worst case, try to get it evaluated by a technician - do not try to open an iPod Classic yourself- you will most likely cause permanent damage.
