    Default HELP! I-Pod woes

    Linkers I am in need of some help! my five year old 20 gig i-pod keeps freezing up. I let the battery drain, recharge the damn thing and within thirty mins. Every thing comes to an abrupt halt and its frozen until I repeat the above mentioned process. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Do a master reset on your computer and if that doesn't work call Apple:

    5 years?

    Kinda of a senior citizen from a modern technological standpoint, my friend. I've never had a player last past four years.

    Only problem I've had has been with my 80gig. Had to send it back to Apple under warranty for the dreaded red X problem. All the Nanos in the house have been spectacular though.

    The solid state ipods do better than the hard drive version. There's no wear and tear on them since there are no moving parts.

    Do you guys remember the Zune guy? The dude that got the zune tattoos and changed his name to Zune? He eventually got fed up with his zune and got an ipod.

    Something I learned after I bought my 80 gig....which I've deleted so much stuff off of that I could manage with a 16 gig at this point.

    Too bad indeed. As incredible as these tiny little things are, they're not sturdy at all. Even taking the best possible care of them you'll be lucky to have them for more than five years.

    Have you tried resetting them? Hold the center select button and play/pause button until the IPOD resets. Sometimes, it does works.
