Stuck in disk mode, error 1416 and -16!
Basically guys, I have an ipod video 5.5g 30gb - and all was fine up until a few weeks ago when it locked u and I got the sad mac logo.
So I ordered a new 120gb hard drive to put in it as the old 30gb just wasn't big enough any more. I've connected it all back together and I thought it was all good.
I connected the ipod to my mac and it told me that had to initialise the drive. So I went into disk utility and tried to format it as mac journaled only to come across the error:
"Disk Erase failed with the error:
POSIX reports: The operation couldn’t be completed. Resource busy"
bit of a bugger - so i started to dig around and came across an apple post by hobbsit_atx (http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa...) - and i tried the terminal command only to get the error code -16 the operation couldn't be completed.
So now i've tried the termainal commands with the same result (error-16) and itunes just tells me that the ipod is corrupt and I need to restore - which i try only for itunes to give me the "1416" error - which from what I can see - there isn't a fix.
I'm getting nearly to breaking point now, and this ipod is about to be launched out of the window. Can anyone please help me? Or have I managed to screw this thing up so badly I've now got a small door stop?
Is this a good question?
