She's been having some issues with the clickwheel, where the spin part wouldn't work without some heavy poking. But recently she's been having trouble with the disk. Songs would play for a second then stop, sometimes it would spin for half a minute trying to load a song, etc. So, I rebooted it. No real improvement. Ok, wipe it, reset the software/settings, and resync. Disk write error while syncing. After that, iTunes just SAT there saying updating iPod and did nothing. So... she's dead.
Looks like I had her right around a year. Pity.
Pondering the 60GB Photo now. So many other things to spend $400 on, but so very addicted to having an iPod.
