    OK...maybe somebody's knows a quick reboot. I hooked my IPOD (30GB Video) up to sync and the screen went to the DO NOT DICONNECT mode, but ITUNES didn't detect it and now the IPOD is locked up. It's been this way for 2 hours. I know with my nano there was a way to force it to reboot but what about for the Video. Anyone know?

    what do you mean by "locked up"? Hold down menu and the center button and that will restart it.

    Was the battery real low?
    Mine will do that if the battery is low, just plug it in to the wall for a little while after you reset.

    To reboot, hold down the menu and center buttons on the iPod until you see the :apple:

    Sorry about that... I scanned through quickly and didn't see the other post... guess I'm going blind. Thanks for the tip on 5 R's. I did get my IPOD to wake up, but now it acting very weird. It will play a video podcast, music etc but not let me pause, turn off, go back etc. And I noticed when I'm scrolling through menu's it's very jerky. I'm going to wipe and reset it hoping that this will correct the issue. Anyone had these problems with your Video IPOD? I'm just wondering if mine is defective.. after only 3 wks.
