The reset key sequence has been changed with the 4th Gen... which may explain the difference.

Thanks for the shout-out :)

This is a common problem found in the 4G iPods. In some severe cases, it doesn't even allow you to power-down or reboot and you're forced to just let the battery die down. I have heard of one solution - reinstall the original settings (and erase all your songs). But there's got to be a better way! There's just gotta!

Dave Burke

As someone who is enjoying his first week of being an iPod listener, I appreciated the tip! Glad you got your tunes back!

John

I have a 20GB iPod, and I just had exactly the same problem while out jogging. After trying Apple's instructions (which didn't work), I found your site, and your tip worked immediately. Kick ass.

You beauty! Brand new 4G owner and first freeze-up. I Googled the problem, and here you are. Thanks for posting!

My new hp/apple ipod just froze while jogging,(which really sucks when your far away from home, you actually have to listen to yourslf breath ;), and thanks to your "middle button menu" combo I'm back on the streets!
Cheers to your blog!!

Fantastic. I managed to freeze-up my wife's Ipod and I was pulling my hair out as the PLAY-MENU solution got me no-where.

You have my eternal gratitude!

This has happened twice in the past three days! First time, I just waited until it ran out of batteries. So glad I decided to get up and try to figure this out!!!

Dude - your solution just saved me a lot of heartache! Thank you!!!
