Recover from an iPod stuck in 'eternal Apple' mode
Authored by: winddog on Nov 25, '05 07:47:50AM

Similar problem here. My 3G 30gig iPod passes every test when in disk mode. I have run everything, ie disk utility, pdisk, drive genius, disk warrior, etc. - no problems. I also erased and zeroed out all data and free space. The installed loads the operating system but when it reboots for the second time it gets stuck at the Apple logo. It does fail the HDD SCAN with 0X00000059 WR FAIL message immediately. It started doing this a few months ago and if I warmed the drive up by writing a large amount of data it would pass the HDD SCAN and then boot. Maybe sector 0 is bad?? Any ideas?
