40 gig iPod sick

Mid-plane ride home, my iPod died. Thought nothing of it, other than annoyance that I couldn't continue to be amazed at my Bose noise canceling headphones, but the iPod was still dead this morning, and giving a variety of error message icons. I could hear the disk churning away inside, but after resetting it (hold the Menu button and the Select circle button simultaneously for 6-10 seconds) and enabling Disk Mode (as soon as the Apple logo appears, press and hold the Select circle button and the Play/Pause button for another few seconds). Busily resetting itself now, which means I can't justify getting a newer iPod with color screen. Doh!

Maybe later: once a hard disk starts showing signs of decay, the end is usually near.

ru-oh, maybe spoke too soon.

Even with Diagnostic Mode, no luck.
