I only got it at the start of the year and it is already after packing in :o What a piece of crap.

I've had mine since 2004/05 I think... and never ever had any problems with it ...

2.5 years and no problem at all.

I got an itouch last December and it had a couple of meltdowns a couple of weeks ago. It's been fine since then, thankfully! I don't know what I'd do without it!

Thanks for responding guys.Well I hope it doesn't happen to ye. I had no problems with it before until last night when it just suddenly froze as I was charging it. I managed to reset it but it once I tried adding songs it froze again and this time it was finished. The apple logo just kept coming up on screen followed by a clicking sound. Oh well, thankfully it is still under warranty so not all is lost.

I had the same problem with my iPod Mini and iPod 5th gen. for quite a while before they eventually died :sad:.

Now I listen to music via my walkman phone (Sony Ericsson W880i). And I must admit, the sound quality is much better and accessories are much cheaper :D.

I've been through 4 80gigs. My first 80gig is somewhere on the bottom of a harbor in Cairns, Australia. Another crashed after a night of unbridled clubbing in Tokyo's Shinjuku district. I had it replaced at the Itunes store in Shibuya. Now I'm down to the replaced 80gig and an Ipod 80gig classic I bought off Amazon.com. I keep the replacement packed away in a safe place, but the classic is utilized for car music and when I go running. So my best guess is that the classic is next to go :lol:

I had an iPod classic for about 1.5 years and it had a few problems. The last problem was that it just would not sync with iTunes at all, which caused me to buy a Nano, which I've had no problems with at all.

2 years and not a problem, :yeah:

I've had one since the Ipod photo came out and no problems... I'm not sure how many years that is but I've also always had it in either a rubber sleeve protecting it or a hard case protecting it? :shrug:

2 years and 3 months and no problems at all. *knock on wood* Same goes for my MacBook.

My i-pod nano is a source of constant annoyance. It freezes persistently and the menu button has taking a vacation from working. My friends never have problems with theirs though.

Wow. I was just thinking after reading this thread that I was fortunate to have nothing go wrong with my ipod (the 3rd one of mine).

And what do I do tonight? Well, apparently it was resting on apair of jeans of mine and when I threw it into the hamper, the ipod went with it and then again into the washing machine. :tape:

But it works. It didn't work at first but I blowdried it and let it rest and now it works all the same. But I am definitely Lucky by Britney. :p

Sorry for your trouble, yet again, I've never owned one. Call me a loom-breaker...

...what about a zune?

I see them at Wal*Mart also...

Wish I hadn't brought it up. Waaay over my head.
