Hey all!
I got a 10 gig 2nd gen (touchwheel, no dock). I bought it brand new in April this year.

I've been very satisfied with it, but now it's having some HD problems. It skips songs and freezes.

I did a test of the iPod. I started a song, let it play for 10-20 secs (untill the HD spins down) then selected and started a new song from another album. I did this ca. 20 times and about 1/3 of the times the iPod either skipped 3-8 songs and then started playing OR froze for 10-15 secs then skip the song and start on the following song on the list.
So the skipping/freezing happen very often (btw: the iPod is laying completely still while doing the test, no shaking around)

I've tried resetting and reloading all songs, but no effect.

So what do you think I should do? Should I try exchanging it for a new one, as it is still under warrenty? Have anyone else exspirienced this, and if yes: did you get a new one with no problems in the store?

Btw: Will I get a 3rd gen iPod or a 2nd gen, if the store will exchange it?

Thank you for reading...
