I finally got an iPod Nano 3G (after much pondering) and it's, well, ok. Stunning device with awesome usability, but pathetic software and missing some key features. Every time I listen to music, I love my iPod. Every time I manage my MP3 collection, I hate it (even after I got rid of the hapless iTunes and installed Floola instead, which is much much better)

Anyway, tonight my iPod crashed, while I was refueling the battery. Screen lit, no matter what button I pressed it wouldn't do anything. And there's no hard reset button :) So?

Solution 1 : wait for the battery to die. Might be long if you've just recharged the battery.

Solution 2 : press Menu, hold and press the center button. Keep pressing both buttons for about 10 seconds, the iPod suddenly reboots. Yay \o/

    Thanks for the post. I found the info very useful. I think your best bet is to get a new Nano because it shouldn't crash… I've had my nano for a couple of years now and its never crashed but its had lots of battery problems though.
