This can be caused by the audio jack, if it doesn't sit tight anymore, the headphone becomes disconnected for small periods of time causing the iPod to detect the headphone as unplugged, hence it will pause. Try different headphones, especially nickel plated ones and make sure there's a tight fit. Also you could have corrupted mp3 files on there, especially if it only pauses on certain songs, delete those songs, restore and transfer again. If that doesn't help the jack needs replacement. If you're out of warranty you can send it to a third party iPod Repair Service.

I plugged my ipod 3rd generation 20 gb into my mac to delete some songs so I could add new ones...the screen came up in iTunes and it said it was disconnected improperly even though it was still hooked...


I would force the iPod into disc mode before attempting to connect the iPod to restore it. Below is a step by step on forcing an iPod into disc mode just in case you need the information :)

Putting ipod into disc mode http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1363 Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.

Hi there Miss Earle,

To reset your iPod you need to press and hold the Menu and Select(centre) buttons until the screen goes blank and an apple logo appears.
You can download the manual for your ipod from here:
