I have an old 4th Generation Ipod and it has seemed to stop playing songs smoothly, it will play for a few minutes then stop and continue to skip to the next song. I have tried resetting and restoring it, but nothing works. When I listen to the back of it, it sounds like the hard drive is skipping? How can I fix this?

Sounds like a bad hard disk drive. You can get replacement parts and instructions at ifixit.com.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
