      Maybe you need to update your ipod software... I dont' really know how to do this since my computer just send me notices when updates are available. i say call Apple!

          I was going to suggest a hard boot to your ipod but sounds like iTunes is the problem and not your iPod freezing (mine freezes sometimes).. I too would suggest running the latest update for iTunes.

              What do you do to get your ipod to unfreeze? Mine freezes and I just have to wait until the battery dies to get it to work again. I thought about restoring it to it's original setting but hate to lose all my music:-(

                Hold down the menu and play button at the same time for about 7 seconds.. the screen will go blank and then the apple will appear to show it's reset. You won't loose any of your music.. I would die if that happened.

                Here's a site that tells you about it and also what to do if your Mac/PC doesn't recognize your iPod.

                    Try rebooting your iPod or try resetting it with the factory settings through iTunes and if everything is in your hard drive the iPod should resync.

                      Basically NOT a good thing to mix your ipod with a PC and a Mac computer try to avoid this as the ipod gets "confused once it talks to a PC".
