Weird storage options for the old hdd drive. 40gb showing 5.64?
This ipod 3rd gen has been a ride to say the least, but above all that, I got a 3rd gen 40gb with a broken drive(it still works but I can hear clicking and grinding) but I got a new drive arrived yesterday! Yay lol but I put it into the 3rdgen and it shows a folder with a exclamation point, so I plugged into iTunes and tried to do a restore, and it went through great until it said “error ipod can't be restored, and unknown error occurred(1429)” so I put my 3rd gen drive into the 4th gen and it shows up, restores and shows right in disk utility(40gb ipod media), in the 3rd gen it shows 5.64gb external hdd. And when I put the 3rd gen drive into the 4thgen I did a smart test and sure enough the new drive is almost perfect. Thanks for any suggestions.
