Is my Classic dead?
I have a lightly to moderately used iPod Classic I bought 3 years ago. Yesterday it started acting very strange. At first it was just songs taking a couple seconds longer than usual to start. Then it would end a song before it was over. The final "there's something very wrong here" moment came when I would start a song and it would just advance to the next and next and next song by itself without playing. I tried resetting it by holding down the center button and Menu at the same time. It displayed the Apple logo and would momentarily lock up, but the problem still exists. Does it sound like the HD is going, or some kind of controlling circuitry? Anyone else ever experience this?
