Don't trash an iPod with bad blocks on the drive
Authored by: wilton on Jan 24, '11 12:03:40PM

The best solution is take take the drive out, and connect it to a PC. Then use Spinrite (http://grc.com) on the drive.

That will test every sector very thoroughly, and mark dead or repair as necessary. Works on all types of drive, mac/pc/linux etc.

Will
