    Keeps freezing! Sometimes in the middle of the song or when I choose a song from the artist and click the select button, it starts to scroll to the right so half the screen is the list and half the screen is the picture of the album but freezes there. Then I can't foward, play, or even turn it off. really annoying!

    Ipod says 'now playing' but nothing is happening. the bar that shows how far the song is has also not moved. It is stuck on 00 and the far right has the total minutes of the song and that also has not moved at all.

Usually a device will froze if the firnware is corrupted...what i would recommend you to do is to use the itunes application to format your device and to update the firmware on the device...that should solve the problem you are having...
Thank you

Press and hold the center button while holding down the menu button. This will reboot your Ipod. Check your IPod cable to see if its shorted. If might have transferred a song and crash in the middle of the transfer.
