    I have a 30GB iPod 5G that I got right when it came out (well, for Christmas that year). It's never had any problems until the last 3 or so months. Often it freezes while playing a song. Or if I try to skip songs or go back to the menu (basically, if I try to press any button). Center button + play doesn't do anything (used to fix all my freezing problems), and center button + menu will just give me the sad iPod face.

    I've restored my iPod multiple times. I even tried just putting on about 500 songs as opposed to the few thousand plus my videos. It still does it. It hasn't been dropped or anything to trigger this. Is my iPod just toast? Or is there some other solution I can try? I'd like to make it last another month or two until I get an iPhone, but I'm not willing to pay to get it fixed (probably would cost more than it's worth at this point)
