30gb ipod freeze up cant shutdown to reboot


Slide the Hold button on the top of the iPod so no red mark is visible. Press the main menu button until you see a long list of options (Artists Albums Songs Extras......) use the scroll wheel to find the sleep press and hold the center button in or Locate the Play/Pause button on the iPod. The Play/Pause button is at the bottom of the wheel around the select button. Press and hold the Play/Pause button until the unit powers off, about three to five seconds. Press any button on the iPod to turn the power on.

Keeps freezing on me, especially when I forward to


Your best bet would be to do a soft reset of the ipod:
  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.
To reset iPod, iPod (scroll wheel), iPod (touch wheel), and iPod (dock connector) ipodg1-2.gif ipodg3.gif
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons simultaneously until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.


If this does not work then you may have to re-format the ipod in itunes. If you click on the ipod in itunes you should see a RESTORE option on the main page.

My mini ipod freezing, showing charger sign i could not turn it to menu


I would attempt putting the ipod into disc mode and see if your ipod is recognized by the computer after you reconnect it. I have researched this issue and found a knowledge base article on apples web site that may help you out with this.
Here are the steps to do it...

Putting iPods with a Click Wheel into disk mode
  1. Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged.
  2. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  3. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
  4. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.ht1363_2.jpg
  5. Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect"
If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.

If it won't go into disc mode while not connected to your computer, try doing the above steps with it already connected to you computer.
If none of these steps work, it is sadly probably time to get a new ipod. I hope that it does help you out though. Good luck :)

My iPod keeps pausing!!


I got this fix from someone on one of these forums so I can't take the credit. It seems to sort the problem out though. Basically the ipod firmware auto pauses when you take the headphones out. Sometime the jack is so sensitive (especially if you buy new phones), that it thinks that you have removed them when you haven't. There is no way of turning this function off (that I know of). However, if you install Rockbox instead (a different operating system that has loads more functionality) then you can switch this function off, resolving the problem.
The only drawback is that you have to work with Rockbox. I only downloaded it last night but it looks pretty neat, way better than the default ipod one.
To switch it off you go to

Settings > Playback Settings > Pause on Headphone unplug > then there are 3 options to play with.

It's worked for me and stopped the infuriating pausing of tracks sometimes a dozen times per track. Relief!

How do I use the stopwatch on iPod nano?


"iPod Software 1.0 for iPod nano introduces a Stopwatch feature. You can use the Stopwatch as you exercise to track your overall time and, if you're running on a track, your lap times too. The Stopwatch menu is located in the Extras menu. To access the Stopwatch from the main menu, select Extras, then Stopwatch, and then Timer (Extras > Stopwatch > Timer) to see its display. Total time of session Current lap time Left button (Start function shown)1 Battery indicator Right button (Clear function shown)1 The left and right buttons' names and functions will change, depending on the current state of the Stopwatch. Using the Stopwatch When you first enter the Stopwatch screen, the left button is labeled Start and the right button is labeled Clear. To use the Stopwatch, select the Start button (use the Click Wheel to highlight the Start button, then press the Center button). The Stopwatch creates a new session, and both the total time of the session and the current lap time begin counting: When these counters begin, the left button changes to Pause and the right button changes to Lap: If you select the Lap button, the current lap time will be recorded in the session's log, then the Stopwatch resets the lap time to zero and begins counting the new lap's time. The total time of the session will freeze for 5 seconds after you select the Lap button so you can quickly view your total time at the end of that lap. After 5 seconds, the total time of the session displays the correct total time and resumes counting. If you select the Pause button, both timers will stop counting and the left and right buttons will change to Resume and Done, respectively. If you select Resume, both timers will begin counting again. If you select Done, the Stopwatch records all the final times and creates statistics for your session in a log. Please note that selecting the Done button does not reset the display. You will see the final times for your total time and lap time displayed: To reset the display, select the Clear button (appears after you click Done and then select Timer again). Stopwatch Behaviors You can play music and use the Stopwatch at the same time. When iPod nano displays the Stopwatch screen, the Play/Pause, Next/Fast-forward, and Previous/Rewind buttons control music playback as usual. If you're playing music, you'll see an icon in the upper-left corner of the Stopwatch screen that indicates the current playback state: A play icon indicates that music is currently playing. A pause icon indicates that a song is currently paused. You can use the Menu button and the Click Wheel to navigate to other menus without interrupting the Stopwatch. Note: The Stopwatch will prevent your iPod from sleeping if it's counting. The Stopwatch will automatically stop if any of these three conditions are met: The total time counter reaches 24 hours iPod goes into hibernation (you can start it again when you wake iPod) You conne
