    I bought an iPod for my girlfriend for her birthday today and the thing is taking forever to format. For the past two hours it's just been flashing "DRIVE NOT FORMATTED" in swedish while the software progress bar gets to 100% then starts back at 0% again. My PC's 80gb hard drive took much less time to format than this. There's probably nothing really wrong with it, i'm just being impatient and I hate iPods.

    i had this same problem with my g/f's ipod that i got her. She has a crappy HP laptop, and it kept screaming at her that she did not have a highspeed USB connection (maybe something do with a USB mouse hooked up simultaneously). Hers was the ipod Mini, and it took like 3 hours to do 4g's worth of formatting. If you find a solution let me know.
