Well, I think I've found the problem: the disk is messed up. Now the darned
thing won't even turn on at all. Holding down the ON button just causes both
the green and red lights to flash and I hear a low clicking sound from the
disk. Same thing happens when I hook it up via USB.
I bought this POS during April of last year, so it's out of warranty. Has
anyone else experienced disk issues - this is with the Hitachi 20GB
(HITCHI_DK23DA-20) drive? I'm wondering if the disk might be covered by a
longer warranty by Hitachi?
Anyone know? Sucks being out $180. I guess this is why people buy Ipods.
Perhaps in 10 years the Chinese will build electronics that don't break
after a year.
