Freezes on iPods and other mobile devices aren't uncommon, and what you'll probably need to do is just reset it. How you do that changes a little from model to model, but you can get step by step instructions from Apple's own page :

Ipod disabled


Like all electronic devices, iPods sometimes freeze and become unresponsive.
Sometimes iPods lock up when they're dropped on the ground or come in contact with water, but less destructive accidents may also cause them to stop working.
All versions of the iPod have a way to reset their hardware should they stop playing music or refuse to turn off.

Check the "Hold" switch on the top case of your iPod to be sure it isn't activated.
An iPod will appear frozen and unresponsive if this feature is activated.
A lock symbol will appear on your iPod's screen if it is in Hold mode.
Switch the "Hold" button on and off once. Place one finger on the "Menu" button and another on the center button.

Press both buttons at the same time and hold them for up to 8 seconds.
Release the "Menu" and center buttons once the Apple logo appears on your iPod's screen.
Try releasing the buttons and pressing and holding them a second time if the logo does not appear, as it can sometimes take several tries to reset a severely frozen iPod.
Press and hold the top button and the center "Home" button on a frozen and unresponsive iPod touch to reset it.
Hold the buttons for at least 10 seconds and wait for the Apple logo to appear on the screen, then release the buttons.
Connect your iPod to its powerblock or a computer if it is still frozen.
Wait 5 minutes and then try to reset it.
Sometimes an iPod can appear frozen when its battery runs out and just needs a few minutes of power to start working again.

Ipod is disabled



Attach a USB connector to the iPod and plug it into a USB connection on a computer for power, or into a stand alone USB charger plugged into a power strip for electrical power.


Pick up the iPod. Move the "Hold" switch at the top of the iPod to the "Locked" position so that an orange color appears by the switch. Return the switch to the "Unlocked" position.

Repeat this process.


Press and hold the "Home" button and the button at the top right corner together if using a fifth generation iPod, iPod Nano, iPod Mini or iPod with a click wheel.


Press and hold the "Menu" button and the "Play/Pause" button together if using an iPod Touch. Press and hold the "Menu" button and the "OK" button together if using an older iPod.


Continue holding the buttons together until the screen flashes and then displays the iPod name and the Apple logo.

Release the buttons.


Wait as the iPod resets itself and turns itself back on.




or

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod.


Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC.

Open the iTunes application by using the dock icon on a Mac or the start menu on a PC.

Click on the name of your iPod under the "Devices" list in the main iTunes window.


Click on the "Sync" button to create a connection between the computer and the iPod.


Click on the eject symbol after the syncing process is complete, and then unplug your iPod from the computer.


The lock code has been reset; when you go to disable the iPod again, you will be prompted to choose a new four-digit code.


hope this helps

My IPOD 30GB is in a frozen mode. Stuck on a song but there is no sound and I cant move forward, increase sound or shut off. The battery is fully charged.


to reset an ipod you flip the hold switch on the back off then hold the middle button and play/pause button at then same time until you see the apple logo. a reset is the only thing you can do besides letting the battery drain. (this happened to me also i suspected a certain song of causing it if it happens again try to recall the song playing) also i would clear the ipods music and re-sync it

1 Toggle the Hold switch on and off (slide it to HOLD and then back again).
2 Press and hold the Menu and Center buttons for at least 6 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

Failed to eject before rebooting computer, now USB port says it doesnt recognize the ipod and my ipod is frozen on "Connected-eject before disconnecting"


Actually this issue shouldn't really be that difficult to resolve. :) A simple reset should take care of it being frozen on the connected screen. Below I have posted a step by step on resetting an iPod.
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) 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.

As soon as you see the apple icon appear disconnect the iPod from your computer. After the iPod completely loads. reconnect it to make sure it is connecting and loading correctly. If this does not resolve your issue for any reason please do let me know. I have a few other options we could attempt. :) and the feed back is always good. It lets me know if I am actually helping people with they're issue's or not.

Frozen screen


First, make sure the lock slider is in the proper position.  I know, obvious, but you'd be surprised how often this happens.
Next, slide the lock slider to locked and then back.  Then press and hold the Menu and Select (center) button for 6-8 seconds.  Try a couple times if it doesn't work the first time.  The ipod should reset and work.
If that didn't work, you can reset your ipod.  But first, try connecting the ipod to your computer and see if it goes into sync mode. If so, wait for iTunes to load and then eject your ipod in iTunes and see if it works again.
To reset your ipod, slide the lock slider to locked and then back.  Next hold the Play/Pause Button and the Menu button for 6-8 seconds.  You may have to try this a couple times.  The ipod should reset.
The last thing to do is to let your ipod discharge completely by leaving it at the frozen screen.  Once your ipod is out of battery, reconnect it to you computer or a power adapter and let it charge.  Then try to access it again or repeat the steps above.
Good luck!

Cant get shuffle to work when not conected to pc


How long have you had the unit? If it's been a year and a half or 2 years your battery needs to be replaced. They loose their ability to retain a charge in that time frame, and when you test a good battery or a bad battery they will both read 3.6v as a tester does not put a load on the battery, meaning you have 3.6v when the unit is off but when it turns on (load) it drops to zero. You could also try resseting the unit, to do so follow these instructions. To reset iPod shuffle: Disconnect iPod shuffle from the computer (if connected). Move the switch on the back of iPod shuffle to the off position. Tip: When iPod shuffle is off, the green stripe by the switch is not visible. Wait 5 seconds. Move the switch on the back to the play in order or the shuffle position. The green stripe will be visible in either position. iPod shuffle is now reset. If after resetting iPod shuffle you are going to attach it to your computer, be sure to place the switch in the off position. If you were resetting as part of some troubleshooting steps, continue with those steps now. For general troubleshooting steps see the iPod shuffle troubleshooting and service FAQ.
