  1. well, i have a 4th gen 20gb Ipod. its working great.
    however, ocasionally, i get these set of beeps which kinda scares me to death and i wonder whats wrong.

    basically these are 6 beeps one after the other.
    its like "2 1 2 1 2 1" where 2 is a little higher pitch than 1.
    its at a tempo of bout 60bpm.
    well... i think i've said enough bout the beep.
    please help if u can.
    thanks a bunch

    I dont know much about ipods but can suggest you do a system reset.

    Also, just to rule out something as simple as this....

    Check if it is the alarm. Doh!

    If your alarm isn't on, and a system reset doesn't fix it, try updating the firmware.
