My ipod Just Froze!!!
    #4565081 - 08/22/05 01:01 AM (12 years, 3 days ago)

what the hell, I removed it from the computer connect and its stuck on the screen "do not disconnect". I tried pressing the reset buttons but they do nothing. I just bought this like 2 weeks ago and I cant believe its already fucking up. The screen light is on do you think I should let it run out of batteries? Maybe that will reset it?

there's a way to reset it, read the instructions. it's something like pressing and holding up. down and the middle.

Did you disconnect it without ejecting it first?:tongue: Have you tryed connecting it again and then properly un-mounting it if it shows up? 

To reset you toggle the hold switch on and back to off. Then hold down Play/Pause and menu at the same time until the apple logo appears.

I've had my mini for almost a month with no problems.

ok well I did the reset (hold menu and select) but now it just flashes the apple screen. When I plug it up to my computer nothing shows up. Maybe the problem was before I unhooked the ipod I added a program to ipods hardrive. But i dont see how that would cause it to freeze.

Is this an ipod mini? Theres a secret diagnostic menu you can use to check your hardrive , flash memory etc... Reset it and when the apple logo appears hold Previous(Left arrow) and select until the diagnostic screen shows up.

If anything download the ipod updater and try and do a factory restore , it will erase and reformat the ipod but at least it may work again.

iPods have lousy battery life,  the battery needs to be replaced after roughly 18 months (and Apple must do this, costing more of your money), they're overpriced and they freeze.

If you don't have one already, I wouldn't suggest roping yourself in.

I'd check out the Creative line of mp3 players.. The Creative Zen Touch 20GB has 24 hour battery life, that doesn't require you to come running back to the company in 18 months to spend more money, has never frozen on me, and was considerably cheaper than an iPod 20GB.  :thumbup:

There are players on the market much, much better than iPods.

I have a Phillips HDD-120, 40 GB. Dirt cheap...

but it freezes like, twice a day, and yo have to reset and find your music again. It sucks when your listening to like, ZZ Top, and you have to start all the way from A and scroll down 400 artists.

mine was kinda expensive but runs amazingly - quite stable.

requires no software - just shows up like an external harddrive (which it is). plays .ogg and has line in/out for recording and plugging into stereo systems. built-in mic for voice recordings (good for lectures - you can plug-in a mic for live shows) plays .avi movies. full color display. picture viewer. text reader. long battery life. and the firmware has been hacked so you can skin it, basically.

Check www.ipodlounge.com they answer any and all questions that have to do with iPods.

I've had my 20gig iPod for about a month now and no problems. Make sure that you "eject" your iPod before disconnecting it.

I have a friend that has been buying bad ipods from apple, fixing them, and reselling them. Apple must have thousands of bad ipods. I just have a little Rio mp3 player and that works great for me.
