Mensagem original de: cns ,
I definately agree. I use a stethescope to listen to the ipod and compare the sound against a known good ipod. Like oldturkey says....rhythmic clicking is a bad drive because there is only 1 moving part in any ipod....the drive platters and read/write heads. Normally, you can hear the platters spin...sounds like a whine. You can tell it's a spinning thing from the sound it makes. So if the sound is different - toast it is.
