    You probably need to plug it into your computer and then restore it to the factory settings. Its going to erase all the songs on there and you'll have to put them back on, but it will make it work again!

    1. Check that your hold switch is off by sliding the switch away from the headphone jack.

    2. Press and hold the following combination of buttons buttons simultaneously for approximately 10 seconds to reset the iPod.

    iPod 1G to 3G: "Menu" and "Play/Pause"

    iPod 4G+ (includes Photo, Nano, Video, and Mini): "Menu" and "Select"

    Shuffle: Turn it off, turn it on. Done.

    If you have an iPod Mini or 4th gen iPod or higher, then you need to press the Menu and Select buttons, not the Menu and Play button, to restart. The Select button is the center button in the middle of the wheel. Upon reset, your will see the iPod name and the Apple logo. You may have to attach your power plug in your iPod to make this work. Your iPod should mount on your computer now. If not, keep reading.

    3. The iPod name and the Apple logo will briefly appear upon a successful restart before advancing to the Main Menu.

    Alright, alright heres what you do.

    You want to reset it by pressing the menu and the middle/select button until an apple logo comes up, then it will be unfrozen.

    If this doesnt work, I would suggest trying the 5 "R's" witch is Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, and Restrore. Just go here:

    Its really helpful if you having problems with the ipod.

    You need to hold the menu and the circle button (select) for about 15 seconds, then your ipod should restart
