    -3G iPod 20GB w/dock
    -Newest update on the iPod
    -Same problem throughout multiple installs, computers and iTunes versions
    -iPod sometimes stops responding and gets really hot

    Is there anything I can do or do I need a new iPod?

    Try verifying and maybe repairing the iPod's disk with Disk Utility in the Utilities folder. Also try using a different cable and Firewire port. Unfortunately, I doubt this'll help though. :eek:

    Thank you Jah...I'm so Blessed
    My 4G gets hot sometimes when being updated etc..but it is on its way out so maybe you should check up on that.

    Do you have your itunes preference set to start up when ipod is mounted?
    How much RAM do you have?
    Repair like MJ said and check your preference.

    I would definitely try a different firewire port or use the USB cable provided. For months, my iPod would not be recognized by any firewire and only with my USB cable then it started working again.
