Having Trouble with your iPod?

Well, techinically, it wasn't my iPod. My dad recently got a third generation nano (which is sexy), and gave his old 4th generation iPod to my sister. Now, my sister is not the most technilogically literate person out there, and within a few weeks had managed to break her iPod. Great. So, after a little fiddling around with it, I realized what was probably the problem. Whenever I turned the iPod on, I could hear the hard drive inside wurr up, and then die. It continued this cycle as it spouted out the error message: www.apple.com/support/ipod. So, after listening to this for a bit, I decided to try and fix it.

I hit it. I hit it firmly on the sides, and then on the front. And, lo and behold, after a few firm hits, the iPod worked again. Perfectly. So, if you feel as though hardware is an issue, and not software, then try firmly (but not insanely hard) hitting the iPod. Perhaps that will gar the Hard drive back into a workable state. If you break your iPod, not my fault.

Very clever way of fixing, certainly some part of it was displaced.

Does it work now? I am asking you because I also get the same error message, I'm trying to find the proper way and fix it. Keep in mind that editing proofreading services will never let you down - these guys work only for your prosperity and success!
