    There is this audible click inside my iPod that clicks randomly?

    NOTES:
    - not the screen protector.
    - not the screen.
    - not the case.
    - not the back chrome.
    - does NOT occur if:
    1. iPod is shook.
    2. Tapped the screen with pressure

    It seems like it comes from the internal parts.
    My guess is the hardrive but i don't know if there is one.

    i dont think any ipod has a hard drive other than the Classics and maybe the OLDEST of the old ipods... i'm pretty sure all new ipods whether it's a nano, touch, phone, pad, they are all FLASH Memory

    reasons: cheaper, works while shaken (when jogging/working out) plus it is less easy to crash (hard drive crash...not dropped "crashed")

    plus ipods are SOLID STATE, meaning that there are not moving parts (well...not intentionally seeing as yours has moving parts) which is good, seeing as with older hard drives in computers that if you didnt turn off your computer properly, and the reading arm was not parked, then there could be damage to the disks...

    but with these SOLID STATE ipods and their flash memory, if you turn if off randomly, it's not a problem.

    Sorry for getting off topic, but i think you should just take it in to an Apple store if you come to any problems that could possibly be caused by the moving part/clicking object or that it is just too annoying for the use of the ipod to be worth it if you do not enjoy using a broken device.

    Flying MaskedPot is correct, only the iPod Classic has an actual hard drive, the rest all have flash memory.

    Second, try taking it to Apple and see what they say.

    This happened to me when I made a call on skype without the headphones (with micraphone) plugged in. Try plugging them in (fully) and removing them again? That worked fine for me.

    I made an appointment and got it replaced after Apple's routine warranty checks!

    Maybe something was stuck in there. Like an insect or a tiny prostitute or some sort.




    Seriously. Maybe it was a short circuit on one of the electronics... You were right to replace it.

    Take it back. It's Apple liability to replace faulty or damaged equipment.
