    Apple don't build adequate error correction into their software because they can't possibly envisage how their hardware can go wrong.

    And i have a SIMILAR laptop to both spikeymike and secretmessages (HP TouchSmart FTW)



    I don't like HP for this reason. The fact that it comes with so much crap, but you don't know which bits to uninstall to retain functionality. Also, shoddy AMD graphics switching not having Linux support doesn't help.
    Everything can go, all you need are the drivers from the HP site, particularly wireless and graphics.

    I don't avoid HP for this reason because I know I can get rid of it and configure it to be the way I like it.

    Don't know much about bad sectors, but would a reformat/restore to factory settings not solve it or atleast make it skip the bad sector when writing?

    Had this thought, looks like the thing might be completely buggered as it's just hanging when I try to reformat, too.

    Anyone aware of any decent free file recovery software?

    Which iPod is this? Maybe just try leaving it for a while when it's hanging? I know there are a few ways to blank it from iTunes restore to holding down certain buttons and putting it into diagnostic mode.

    File recovery as in retrieving music from the buggered iPod? When my iPods messed up, I found SharePod to be pretty perfect.

    I was more thinking along the lines of recovering the files to the iPod that were lost when it tried to sync. Figured I'd try copying my music onto it with SharePod instead but it seems to be hanging in the same place, after 200 or so songs.
