After about an hour my 80GB Classic freezes up when played through Logitech's MM-50 Speakers.
Is this a common problem?

Well, I pressed stop when I was listening to a song, then I slided the Hold bar on my ipod. After I got home, I connected my ipod into my comp and realized it's freezing, I was so scared T"T, I started iTunes and it didn't recognize my precious iPod... After that I took my ipod out and connected it into my comp once again. After a while, my ipod still stayed freeze, I tried to "Add hardware" from the Control Panel, then I started iTunes again, after about 15 minutes trying, my ipod worked, that was scary (-___-')

My Ipod Classic just froze on me. I can't shut it down or move anything. I tried plugging it into my computer but that never helped either. I see a lot of people having this problem. Apple seems to be very slow in releasing a fix. Buyer beware!!

I have the same problem, with my ipod (80gb classic) freezing quite alot), I did some research and the solution is to hold both the menu button and the middle button down together, untill the screen goes black and restarts with the apple logo. It should be fine after this.
Spread the word, this was too hard to find out (it's frozen like 4 or 5 times now and I only just discovered this)
