Don't trash an iPod with bad blocks on the drive

I would think it'd be much more productive to send it off to for a new / upgraded drive.

While *some* drives may not continue to deteriorate once bad blocks start, most do. Certainly you can't trust a drive that has already demonstrated hardware wear.
