    Same thing is happening to mine, although I haven't tried hooking it up to the computer since it started.

    Mine started skipping through iTMS songs a few weeks ago and randomly freezing. Resetting it (turning to hold/on, then pressing down select/menu together) worked briefly but problems recurred.

    In the end, I restored it and it started working properly again. Plug the iPod in, close iTunes and then run the iPod installer (you can download it if you've misplaced it) and tell it you want to restore it to factory defaults. It does mean that you'll lose all your music/data on the iPod and have to transfer it all back over but it worked for me.

    I had similar problems with my 20 gb 4th gen. I ended up having to send it to apple, which is a major hassle in itself. I pity you if you have to send it off. I am still waiting for mine to be fixed.

    Possible problem with the design? This is a lot of people for such a specific problem.
