Hey Everyone,

I am having a problem with my 2nd G Mini. It is Frozen, and it will not respond to anything I do. I tried to reset it, and it won't reset. I even tried to plug it into my computer hoping that it would do something other than show this one song on the screen. I have had my Ipod for like 5 months. Seems like time to go and buy applecare huh??

Any suggestions??

You tried to reboot it? Holding pause and play for about 5 seconds? It's charged? Does it show in Disk Utility at all when you attach it the Mac?

You could try downloading the software updater/restorer and doing a clean install, so to speak.

sometime it takes almost 30 seconds for the reset to work. also be sure you lay the iPod on a flat surface and use 2 seperate fingers that don't touch when holding the pause and play buttons

is the iPod showing in iTunes??

This may be a stupid comment, but flip the hold on and then off again before you try to reset it, just to make sure that the hold is really off.
