I purchased my 30 gig iPod Photo last May, and it was great until a couple of months ago when crazy things started happening. For instance, i would try to play a song and it would jsut freeze. I would reset it (menu + middle button), and it would work okay for a while, until it happened again. Now this problem happens about 3 times a week. I was dealing with this fine until i started up the ipod and got an SAD-FACE IPOD! I reformatted it to "factory settings", put in all my music again, and it worked okay. ...now, i just got another sad-face. Do I hafta do all of that again? Is there some way I can fix this thing without replacing it? I have too much faith in Apple to just "assume" that it's broken and i need another.
