My 8gb black Ipod 3rd gen has frozen on me. I cannot turn it off or change the screen, it does however charge. Also, the format is not color anymore, it appears to be an old charging format.

My Ipod 3rd gen. wont work other than when its pluged into the pc

Your battery is most likely dead to the point where it can no longer hold a charge, which is the reason that when you unplug it from the computer, it dies instanly. Batteries are pretty cheap going up to about as high as $25 and if you get it done at a ipod place, installation should not be that much.

My Jamo i300 will not charge my new ipod nano (4th Gen).

not likely the new 4 gen Ipod has different pin set within its dock connector system for the video output which has made many 3rd party accessories no longer able to charge the ipod but it will still play music

Try this: Press and hold the wake/sleep button and the home button simultaneously for ten seconds and the apple logo should appear on the screen. Release the buttons and it should work like normal. Hope this helps.

Ipod nano 8GB 3rd generation FROZEN!

You need to reset your ipod. Flip the hold switch on then off, then press select button and menu button at same time. Hold for 10 seconds or so. Ipod should shut off and reboot to apple screen. If this doesn't work first time try again. This should solve any stuck screen problems. Mine was stuck on pioneer screen and this operation fixed it.

Don't respond to them. It isn't legitimate. There selling something and I wish they would cancel his account.

It could be the battery. Do you have an Apple store nearby. You might want to have him look at it. They will do that for no charge.

Best Buy can look at them as well if you don't want to go back to Apple.
