How to Fix a Frozen iPod

The 4Gb versions (minis) seem to freeze more than the regular ones. You need to reset the iPod in order to get it functioning again. To reset:

Hold the menu and action (middle button) together.

This should reset the iPod.

I have heard some people mention that occasionally some albums appear to be missing after the reset due to database corruption. I have not witnessed any db corruption on mine so I cannot speak to that issue.
