I've a Samsung G2 Portable HX-MU050DC/GW 500GB. - I was using it fine on PC1 when a Scan Disk Message Window (bad sector) popped out. I did a scan disk, nothing happened and continue copying and pasting...

when you see "bad sector" you need to not only run scandisk, you need to tell it to "automatically repair bad sectors" if you didn't do this, then you have written to the bad sectors and that data can not be retrieved. As for the MAC issue, you didin't say what format your HDD was, if it was FAT32 it should mount on MAC, but not if it is NTSC as MAC can't read it. If I were you I would copy all the files from your HDD to a wiindows machine and then run scandisk again, only this time make sure to auto repair, these sectors will now be gone, and its not a great loss and does happen quite ofter unfortunately. The data you have written to the bad sectors "CAN NOT" be recovered, you might get part of it, but most likely not. Good Luck

When i connect my ipod via the usb lead it reads 'files damaged', so unable to play music, any answers ?

Hmmmm try this link below they are some tools to help you do this, fix.
How to fix the iPod
There are multiple ways to fix the corrupted iPod, though it’s not 100% gauranteed it will work coz chances of HDD corruption do exist.
- Restore method Try putting it in disk mode by holding the Menu + Center buttons until the Apple logo appears, then when it Logo appears, switch to holding Center + Play/Pause buttons until it says “Ok to Disconnect”. Then try formatting or restoring it and see if it fixes it at all. To get out of disk mode, reset your iPod by holding Menu + Center buttons until the Apple logo appears again. If this fails, proceed with the next.
- Disk management: plug in iPod > Right click My computer > Manage > under “storage”, click on “disk management” right-click on the iPod it shows. “Change drive letter and paths…” then change the drive letter to something different. Then unplug the iPod and plug it back in again. It should work.
- Driver Re-install -Plug your ipod into your computer, My Computer > manage > Device Manager and click on Universal Serial Bus Controller. Then click the plus sign and find the one with your device (it should say something like “USB Mass Storage Device.”. Right-click on that device and select “Uninstall.” Let the screen refresh. Replug your device from the computer, wait about 5 seconds then plug it back in.
- Formatting and Restoring Another way is to format the iPod HDD (and then restore) to remove minor disk errors that might have come over usage of iPod.
To proceed with this, you need a utility called HP USB. You can either google it or download it here. Format the drive as FAT 32 and then you should be able to restore it with no problem.
- Try CopyTrans Doctor Its a good software for iPod recovery and fixes. Guide available here.
If All of the above methods fail, probability of having bad clusters is high.
How to confirm iPod Hard disk has gone bad?
If you succeed in doing the quick format with the utility tool, and can now right click on Apple ipod in “my computer” and get the menu, proceed with this. Select the iPod in “my computer” right click >Properties > Tools > check disk. MAke sure you have the checkbox ” Attempt for the recovery of bad sectors” selected. Now your disk is checked for consistency. It will be checked in 2 phases. If it fails in any one of those with un-repairable message or freezes infinitely, then there is no solution, you would have to rush to apple to get the support. Else try the above steps again with the latest iTunes, it should work.

Memory problem

i this is not original apple ipod... then how to find is it original or not may be ur question?
here is the answer first when you buy the duplicate will also show 2 gb because some cheaters install other software for ipod and make it to show 2 gb but what actually is it s original memory will be 512 mb or 1 gb when you try to copy copy more than this capcity it will copy but after once again you cant get back that data stored in the exceeded space ... so error will come some thing like "the file is damaged" some thing like that then we will think may due to some error or due virus data is not available when we actually fully format it then only we will come to know it s duplicate... thats y now a days when we buy ipods we must buy original with bill... if there is a bill there will be warranty so..
now let s come to point if ur s is original then u just give for full format and then have look at the capacity... it occurs in original also some times due to bad sector formation.. so give for full format before giving full format just check for errors .. if it is original you will get back your real capacity back...

Loading songs - format message

if you've used wmp to rip and encode the cd to the wma file standard, the ipod won't play them. the ipod doesn't support wma or ogg vorbis (and doesn't support the pro part of mp3 pro) you need to encode your files to either mp3 or aac (or leave them as wav files, though these are very large) for the ipod to play them. this may be causing the mmjb transfer problems.

check out the software compendium on info on alternatives to rip, encode and transfer to the ipod.

Can I view photos on my iPod photo/"Color"? nano?

Depending on the model, to view photos on your iPod photo/"Color", you either need to import photographs using Apple's iPod Camera Connector, or transfer images from your computer through iTunes 4.7 or higher to the iPod. For the current iPod U2 Special Edition "Color", iPod "Color" (20.0 GB), the version of the iPod photo (60 GB) introduced on February 23, 2005 and renamed iPod "Color" (60 GB) on June 28, 2005, as well as the discontinued iPod photo (30 GB), the simplest way to transfer photos from many digital cameras to your iPod is to purchase and use Apple's iPod Camera Connector (US$29). This device simply allows you to directly connect a digital camera to the camera connector and in turn connect the camera connector to the iPod "dock" port. Photos imported using the iPod Camera Connector are immediately viewable, with the exception of RAW format images and video clips. However, photos imported using the iPod Camera Connector cannot be immediately viewed as a slideshow with transitions. On versions of the iPod photo (40 GB, 60 GB) released prior to February 23, 2005, photos transferred directly from a digital camera using an iPod-compatible media reader are not immediately viewable, but photos transferred through iTunes 4.7 or higher, which converts photos into a "thumbnail" format, can be viewed on the iPod photo itself or displayed using the iPod photo connected to a TV or projector. The iPod nano, introduced September 7, 2005, can display photographs on the internal display "loaded" from a computer, but as it lacks video out, it cannot display photographs on a television or projector. The iPod nano also does not support the iPod Camera Connector or third-party solutions, so photos cannot be transferred from a camera. For information regarding the iPod nano and accessory compatibility, please refer to Apple Support
