I've had my ipod for about 4+ish years w/o any replacements and it's constantly freezing and making clicking noises when I try to listen to it and I always have to reset it. From the research I've done, it sounds like the hard drive is getting worn out and replacing it is the fix. The DIY tutorials I've seen have made it look incredibly easy and I was just wondering if it was that easy for you if you've done it. Did it fix the problem?
Also, my battery dies really fast now and I need to replace it, too. If you've replaced the battery on your own, was that easy, too?
I'm determined to keep this ipod as long as possible. I'll feel like apple's beat me if I have to get a new one. If I don't get a zune instead. W/e.
