    External Hard Drive Help...

    A drawback is that you cannot put files over 4gb on FAT32. While it still may seem thats not a problem today, it will certainly be a problem in a couple years. I say you partition it 90% FAT32, 5% Mac OS X Extended, 5% NTFS.

    Headphone jack

    Hi, my iPod Classic headphone jack is kind of broken. I know it is my fault because I wrapped the earphones around w/o unplugging, and i did it tightly. If I bring it back to the applestore to have repair on it, will they know it is broken from my fault, or will they think its just a defect?
