iPod classic update causing disk-spinning bug?

A number of iPod classic owners are reporting an issue where their units’ hard disk spins endlessly after applying the 1.0.2 update. The problem was first discovered by a group of users complaining of poor battery life, which is a result of the disk spinning and draining the battery in an abnormally quick fashion. Although the exact cause of the bug is still unknown, some users have found that turning off the device’s Cover Flow feature fixes the problem. Apple has yet to comment on this issue. [via Engadget]
