I've had my 5G iPod since just after it was released and had zero problems with it. I really wanted the touch but finances have been tight, however my girlfriend FINALLY agreed on the condition that she would get the old 5G.

Well I went to the Apple store yesterdy and picked up my new iPod touch. I brought it home and synced it the way I wanted and then began working on setting up the old 5G with all the television shows my girlfriend wants to watch.

Not two minutes into syncing I hear the sound of grinding coming from the iPod. I rebooted to find that the grinding continued and the iPod would no longer boot from the Apple logo. It got really hot so I finally took the case apart so I coul disconnec the drive before it melted the darn thing or caused a fire.

My girlfriend is going to KILL ME!

Did the 5th Gen happen to have any Celine Dion songs or episodes of Desperate Housewives on it? The iPodT might have though it was doing you a favor.

I think it's printed on the warning page in the manual that it's not recommend... ?

I would take it back to the apple store and get another Ipod Touch.

PS-Don't tell your girlfriend.
