After I charged my ipod and wanted to check if the battery was fully charged the screen froze with the hour glass displayed on it. I have tried holding in the centre button swithching it on and off and even recharging it during the night. Also connected it to the computer but get a message that the device is not working properly. Please advise.

Re: Hour glass frozen on screen
While disconnected from your PC, toggle the hold button on and then off. Then hold down the menu button and the center button at the same time. hold them until the screen flashes. then release. You may have to try this several times.
If that doesn't work, try doing a restore. You can do this from the summary page in itunes. all your music will be erased, but you can just do a sync and re-load it.

Hold down the power and home buttons for 30 seconds until you get to the Apple logo screen. That should do a hard reset. If that doesn't work, let the battery completely drain (your iPod will turn off) and then charge it for an hour, then, try the reset again. If that still doesn't work, hook up to your computer and do a restore from iTunes. If none of these remedies work, then call Apple or go to the Apple Store in your area.
Fully charging the battery takes about 4 hours. You can also fast-charge the battery to 80 percent capacity in 1 hour (2 hours for iPod (Click Wheel)). Charging the battery may take longer if you're using iPod as it charges.
