i need to get my 30 gig ipod video fixed. i have tried a few different types of brand new headphones and i am still having the same problem. the music only comes out of the left earphone and the right one only works of i "tinker" with it. i checked with rapidrepair.com and they can fix it, but when i get it back i wont have any music on it and i have 150 playlists. does anyone know of a place where i can get my problem fixed without erasing years of music. ive tried some of those freeware ipod music playlist rips......they suck. they arent organized and it would take forever to re-sync 150 playlists. does anyone have any ideas?

thank you for your time.

I don't have an Ipod, but the description of your problem certainly sounds like a cracked or broken solder point on the headphone jack. Any good electronics repair shop should be able to do the job, but it's getting harder and harder to find electronics repair shops in most places -- at least around me. One problem is that the Ipod really wasn't made to be opened up. A repair shop that attempted this job would risk doing cosmetic damage to the case.

I don't really understand why you'd lose your music, unless the repair shop was planning to replace the hard disk.
