ipodmini lock up

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
My i-pod mini has locked up on a certain song. Touching any button or hold, etc does nothing.

only thing I can think of is letting battery run out and then re-starting.

Any other ideas. Very annoying.

    Here's Apple's official word on this:

    But if you're not near a power cable, you can skip to step 2 or go straight to step 3, which is the important step.

    awesome. it worked. Thanks so much. Should I expect for this to happen again, or you think it is just a glitch?

    hey - drop that chick man. she sounds like a real drag!!!!

    i lived in HK three years. There are lots of women with style there. I recommend keeping that chick and branching out - maybe have 2-3 girlfriends. Good luck dude.

    I've had to reset my iPod mini several times. One time holding the buttons didn't reset it and somehow by the next morning the battery ran out and it started responding again. Other than freaking me out a few times, the unit is fine.

    I'm not gonna talk about women's styles.
