Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player
Whenever I try to play a video (whether it is a converted video, or a video podcast or a trailer from the itunes store), it shows the play icon in the corner, but the screen goes blank and just freezes. I have to reset the ipod to get it to work again. I also hear clicking noises from the hard drive when it begins to play (although nothing comes on the screen). I have tried restoring my ipod, but it still doesn't work. My settings are set to "Ask" for TV out, and NTSC. I have tried it with "Off" for TV out as well. Everything else works fine, and the videos used to work fine as recently as 2 months ago.
Any clicking of a hard drive means physical damage. Have you ever dropped the Ipod? Is it still under the Apple care warranty? If your ipod has been dropped or received considerable shock, it's most likely effected the internal hard drive, especially to the point to where you can hear it?
The back rear side of the ipod has a serial number. Enter it at the bottom of the page for the link provided. If the Ipod is still covered by the warranty and has NO signs of user fault, then I would take advantage of the warranty.
Hope this helps.
