This link should resolve your issue:

Most likely you're 16th file is corrupted somehow. This link tells you how to isolate the troubled file and how to proceed. If that doesn't help you might be looking at hardware issues.

I think it is hardware issues. I tried and it still will not load . What type of hardware issues could it be? Can it be fixed or should i throw it away. Everything works great but will not download over 15 songs. If i have about 3 pictures it will only download about 5 songs before getting the error (69)


I would have to say it's a hard drive issue. Has it been dropped? Any funny noises coming from the iPod?


no it still works fine other than loading only 15 songs. i can load any 15 songs but no more than 15. as i know of it has not been drop. if i load say 5 pictures it will only load about 6 songs.


That's really odd, but all symptoms point to hard drive failure.
