The 30 GB iPod's had a Hitachi HD, which seems to have hit and miss problems. The 60 GB's were Toshiba HD, which were much more reliable. The iPod touch went flash based, which is the most reliable so far. If it has warranty, let apple worry about it, then do what ever you want once it's fixed.

The screen froze on ipod 30gb. it keeps saying do not disconnect and will not turn off.


Press and hold the center button, while also holding down the menu button ( top of wheel )

It will force the device to restart, and should fix your problem.

I hope this helps.

Ipod froze


Try this which should reset your ipod: First, toggle your hold switch back and forward and put it back to the off position. Then press and hold the menu button and the center button simultaneously for about six seconds and the screen should go blank and the apple logo should appear. After that it should work.

Please help my IPOD! It froze on the same screen w/ the light on


Slide the hold/lock switch on and off and then hold down the "Menu" button and the center button for about 5 seconds. If this doesnt restart your iPod, try the same procedure, but instead, hold down the "Menu" button and the "Play/Pause" button for 5 seconds. This should reset your iPod.

Hope it works!

I have a 8gb ipod nanm and recently it froze and won't move or


  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 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
