Reset A Frozen iPod

If your fifth generation iPod has locked up or frozen, you may be able to reset it and save a trip to the genius bar at the Apple store. To reset a video iPod, toggle the Hold switch on and off, then press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears. This takes about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Also, different iPods have different reset procedures, so you might want to go to Reset to find out how to reset your iPod.

    Why do iPods freeze anyways? its so annoying!! I decided that I am going to get a good case for iPod
    to help protect it better. Does one have any experience with VibeVaults? I hear they are incredible and
    have really good screen protectors. I found them at What do you think about them?
    Are they worth it?
