No unfortunately this is a problem with 1-3rd gen iPod Nano's What i means is that the flash memory is starting to fail. If it freezes next time you can do this
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.
this is a soft reset and makes it easier then waiting till the battery dies.

Sometimes the batteries in devices like this fade over time. If the iPod saw heavy use and many charge/use cycles, this may have depleted the batteries efficiency enough to warrant the lower playback times.

How do i reset my mp3 player its just frozen?


How Do I Fix My Sony MP3 Player That Froze & Won't Turn On?

Sony Walkman MP3 players, like most MP3 players, can occasionally freeze up and stop working properly. Fortunately, there are two simple ways of resetting the Walkman system. The first method takes only 10 to 15 seconds to complete and is an effective way to troubleshoot most technical problems you may have with your Walkman. The second method, unfortunately, may take several hours; it requires you to allow the battery to drain completely. Whatever the problem is that's causing your MP3 player to freeze, one or both of these methods should clear it up.

Instructions


Things You'll Need:

* Paperclip
* Walkman MP3 player charger



Reset Button

Straighten the paperclip and set it aside for now.
Locate the reset button on your Sony MP3 player. On most models, it can be found near the volume control mechanism.
Insert the end of the paperclip into the reset button and hold it down for three to five seconds. When the screen flickers, you'll know that the MP3 player's system has been reset.
Remove the paperclip and wait for the system to reboot.


Battery Drain

Turn on your MP3 player.
Let the battery's life deplete. Since the system is frozen and no music is being played, this will take longer than usual.
Check that the battery is completely depleted. Sometimes the screen just goes dark during this process, but the battery is not actually drained. You can check this by pushing buttons or trying to power up the system.
Connect your MP3 player to its charger and plug it in to a power source. Allow the MP3 player to fully recharge.

Power on the MP3 player. The system should be operating normally again.

It say do not disconnect


Thank you for contacting Fixya Support.

In a case where you are receiving a Do not disconnect message and freezes in that state even if you disconnect your iPod, the usual remedy is to allow your iPod's battery to completely drain. Then connect the iPod back to your computer and allow it to completely recharge. At that point, connect it to iTunes and perform a restore,

A restore will restore your iPod back to its original factory settings, but once it does, you will have your iPod back and should also be able to restore your iPod back to one its previous backups via iTunes.

Try this procedure and let me know if this helps.

Regards,

Will not turn on


if it was working before, maybe the battery had been placed in the wrong position, or the new battery was depleted.

My Ipod (ipod model number a1137) is no longer charging and as a result it has completely depleted its power reserve. I am not sure why this happening or why it will not charge any longer. Please assist...


Try charging it with an AC adapter.

If this doesn't work, it's likely that the battery is simply old. I think your model of iPod is a 1st gen Nano, in which case the battery has probably neared the end of its life.

See this page on how to get it replaced by Apple:

Or, if you think you've got the skills, you could try doing it yourself:

Battery depletes over night after fully charged with no use


This is because the cable that connects new battery to iPod is either damaged, or has come loose...

Take it back to whoever performed the replacement... Or, I can walk you through the repair myself, but you will need a VERY thin flat-head screwdriver (like the kind in glasses repair kits).

P.S I GUARANTEE this is your solution... I'd stake my iPod on it.

Battery problem


Battery problems, in my opinion, is the worst problem you can have. The reason I say that is that almost every problem I have seen as an iPod repairman can start from a depleted battery. When the battery depletes it can cause phantom problems and mimick other issues. I have seen it say full battery, bad hard drive, will not connect, folder icon, constantly freezing, constantly rebooting, you name it. You can replace your battery and often times it will correct the problem along with a restore. Unfortunatly when repairing anything you have to replace some parts to narrow down where the problem lies. There is a possibility that the battery is bad but went bad becuase of another issue.
I would go in this order: replace the battery, if it doesn't fix it, restore (you will lose everything on your ipod so back up your files), if still no fix, replace. You can usually sell your broken ipod on ebay for a decent price to off set the price of a new one. You can also get a refurbished one on apple.com/store with a year warrenty for way cheaper. Good luck.
