Not having a lot of luck with iPods

I mentioned on Friday that my iPod had a hissy fit on Friday and refused to respond to commands, simply spinning up and spinning down the disk. Well, it appeared to fix itself, so I put it down to the intervention of a cosmic ray (if you ever worked in technical support, you should get this ;)).

However, all was not well. Whilst listening to Green Day's American Idiot on Friday evening, half way through a track, the iPod stopped playing, stopped responding and started its little game of spinning up and down the disk. I reset it, plugged it back into the power connector and then left it to do its own thing.

Yesterday morning, I had some time to kill after my run, so I sat down to appreciate "Close To The Edge" - one of the Yes albums I bought last week, and once that finished, another chance for American Idiot.

The iPod got around 2/3 of the way through the second track on American Idiot (which seems to have 5 or 6 titles), and then repeated its problem :(

I tried to reconfigure it using the iPod updater software on the PC, but that could only manage to complain about "Service Error" when trying to establish contact with the iPod. So, I think there's something not quite right with the unit.

So, I think it's back to Apple with it now as it is getting a bit annoying.

Comments:

My 60Gb ipod photo was doing something similar it was skipping through tracks not responding etc and I thought the drive was shot, multiple resets and not syncing to the computer I tried to reset it and reload everything and it kept hanging, eventually I put the thing into disk mode and finally got itunes to recognise it, reset with the updater and its been fine since, it may help your case too...
