Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player
I accidentally dropped my ipod yesterday & when i plugged into my computer to synchronize itunes froze. The ipod kept making a sound like it's processing, but it doesn't want to work, what should i do?
When an ipod is dropped very often something will break. It sounds like the force of the fall took the hard drive out.
Turn your ipod on, Press and Hold the Menu and the Center button until the apple logo appears, then quickly switch your fingers to the Back Button and the Center Button. This will put the iPod in Diagnostic mode.
Go Through all of the diagnostic tests and if it fails I/O or Hard Drive Test your chances are your Hard Drive will need replacing.
One other suggestion, Open the iPod and remove the Hard Drive cable for the Main Board and the hard drive. Flatten the cable ends by using your fingers to straighten the ends.
Re-install the cable and Hard Drive and see if your problem goes away.
