My ipod nano froze while i was listening to my music so i restarted it by holding the center button and the menu button. now all it shows is the apple on my screen. when i press play, i can hear my music...

Try going in itunes, right clicking on the song, and click create AAC version. The song may be in the wrong format which is why it won't finish playing it. Hope this helps!

My ZEN Mozaic just froze on a song what do i do

Try reseting the ZEN. There should be a tiny reset button on the bottom left side, you might have to use a staple or paperclip or pencil tip to reach the button. Your music, pictures, and videos should all still be able to work. If this doesn't work I don't know what to do.

After listening to the first song, i flipped to the next and it froze!

There should be a reset button at the back try this, or hold the power button for several seconds and see if it does anything.

If it's just frozen in on mode you can also wait for the battery to die and then try again.

Good luck.
