    One of my friends has an 80gb iPod Video and they seem to have a problem with it. They can play a song for about 3 seconds or 3 songs in a row and then the iPod crashes and the only way to sort it out is to reset the ipod.

    To me, this sounds like a firmware problem. Is there anyway I can reflash her iPod and sort it out?

    if you are familar with a program called ipodwizard there is an option to rewrite the firmware (although the ipod might not be supported so check first). If that comes to nothing why not just restore in itunes?

    Apparently it never works when it gets restored. It wont take the songs off and restore it or anything

    How do I get it to that, and then what do I do?

    Not very up to date with these iPods

    I think it's the song itself

    It happened to me with a 30GB one, it played then it just freezes

    The only way to get it back was to do a hard reboot

    The only fix was to redownload the song from iTunes

    IF this doesn't work, try dark side's suggestion

    Ok I now have two of these I need to fix.

    One of them wont turn on. it just gets to the Apple logo and then reboots. The other one has the problem I mentioned in my first post.
    The one that wont turn on doesn't connect in iTunes :/
