For some odd reason, my iPod is mucking up.
It often fails to sync (error -48) and after restoring many times, it still doesn't work. The iPod makes an electronic buzzing shrieking noise sometimes as i copy files to it (which never manage to completely transfer) and the hard drive keeps parking and making a very load clunking noise. It has also restarted of its own accord a few times.
Does anyone know how i can sort it? It is an 80gb iPod, and I have only had it for 1 month - it cost me £180!!!!

Help, please!

Take it to an Apple Store. They'll just replace it if the hardware is going bad.

My nearest Apple Store is Manchester, 400 miles away, that's out of the question

I think you can call apple, they can send a new one to you if you send your old one

Are they going to refuse to do it, because I bought my iPod in the States?

Yea, they shouldn't refuse taking it back, even if you bought it in the states. As long as you are under the warranty period, you should be good!!
