About an hour ago I was listening to my (rockbox) ipod video it just stopped and wouldn't reboot. After further inspection I could hear the hardrive spinning still inside, also around the location of the battery I could feel quite an amount of warmth coming through the casing. As a last resort I opened it up and disconnected the battery - connected it back up, the player booted again and appears to be running fine.
Anyone heard of this before or know the possible cause?
It appears to have gone through quite a bit of battery power while the drive was spinning. Mainly, I want to know why, because it's kind of made me lose faith in the player, might do It again when I can't open it.
Check the hard drive for sector errors, it's always a possibility that the drive might be failing.
