Re: ipod hd problem

1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

then plug in to your comp and use itunes to restore to factory settings Thats half of it, but...

These problems seem like you will need to go into disk mode,

Reset, then while the apple logo shows, hold play and centre, you will be in disk mode and should be able to use the HP format tool, then after a quick format, connect to iTunes to finish the process

How do i unfreez my ipod other than putting it in rice and the sun

I can hardly understand your question.
If you have an icon in the ipod suggesting to connect to itune, then get a computer with itune and connect the ipod to it. Click on restore in order to make the iPod brand new and restore it.
Before that,you can also try pressing and holding the power button and the home key until you see the Apple logo again, then let go.

Will not turn on at all

1. Open iTunes.
2. Connect iPod.
3. Click on your iPod, and click Restore.
This should solve it as it restores the original software, note, all data will be erased.

If this does not help: Call APPLE.

Ipod 30gb battery shuts off in 30 minutes

your issue could be one of 2 things.
Either your battery is becoming old and needs to be replaced or your mainboard is malfunctioning and causing the low battery signal.

If you have your music library backed up in iTunes, I would connect the iPod and restore the firmware. You can accomplish this by pressing the restore button in itunes.

If your battery is more than 2 years old, replace it and see if the problem goes away,

Ipod Touch does not support file format for new HD downloads from Itunes?

I don't think it matters about whether there HD or not.  They just have to be in mpeg 4 format compatible with Ipod.  Do you have any software to convert the files into a different format?

Apple iPod Model A1136, 30 GB.

First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the left, here's how you reset:

You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.
