I got my ipod over christmas and used it at my parents house and connected it to their computer. I just got back to school and plugged the dock connector and ipod into my computer at my apartment and the ipod turned on, the screen lit up and went straight to the last song i played and has been frozen for the last hour or so. I've tried to turn it off, I used the tactics that the ipod manual said to do which was toggle the hold button and then holding the menu button for six seconds. That didn't work. I also tried to safely eject the usb end of the port and my computer isn't even recognizing that it's plugged in to it. So basically, my ipod is frozen and I can't use the click wheel or change anything on the screen. So if someone can help me, that would be great.
