I've had my iPod for a couple of years now (just a regular iPod, not a shuffle or a touch or anything fancy like that). It was always really good to me, until just recently. Now, within the past month, I've had to restore it to factory settings 3 different times.
My connector cable is also seriously frayed at this point. The white casing has worn off in a few different places, exposing the wires.
Will a new cable fix the issue, or is there something wrong with the iPod itself?
