Hey, congradulations on my new iPod. I got mine the other day, and I too was worried that it was a problem, but apparently, everybodys 5G does it, and yes, it is the HD, because it has to search to find the video. It surprised me, because, as you will notice, it will even do that when playing music, if you have album artwork enabled, and if you search through songs. My mini never did this, or made any sort of noise, especially one I could "feel", so I was afraid somethign was wrong with it. But apparently all 5G iPods do this, and it's not a problem.

I do know that the 60GB has more RAM than the 30GB, which improves battery life AND plays songs faster, album artwork isn't slow to load, etc... So, it might not make the noise, I'm not sure, but it probably will. Also, if you have album artwork enabled, or when you scip through songs, dont' be worried if you hear some noises, and it temporarily "freezes" for about a second. Apparently, this happens to everybodys new 5G, and isn't a problem, it's just the HD, but like you, yeah, I was worried, because my mini didn't make any noise that I could hear at all.

I swear it happens on every iPod or at least the 4G.

The HDD must spin for it to access information, so hearing/feeling the vibrations isn't such a big deal.

I'd care more if you couldn't hear anything! :p
