After several weeks of poking around with it I think the hard drive has gone bad. The hard drive now makes loud clicking noises and rattle when shaken, also when trying to do a brand new sync the process stops at 9% I am guessing this is where the bad sectors start and progress slows until it is unresponsive. I am thinking about ordering a new hard drive and doing the repair myself. has anyone tried this on here? I have seen youtube videos and my brother has opened out old zune 30 cases although that was to destroy them.
Edit: From what I can see all i would need is a 1.8 hard drive and amazon has a 120 gig for
. Can anyone confirm that this would work?
