I have had my iPod for about 10 months. Just recently it started to freeze for about 4 seconds during movies. I took it back to the store and they told me to start my files from scratch. I did that and it is still freezing. Could it be that I have a virus? Please help.

Does it do that on every movie?

I don't have a fix, but you might be able to find one on Apple's vast support site (http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/).

Since the iPod you have now has a history of problems, you might also want to consider springing for the AppleCare (http://www.apple.com/support/products/applecareipod.html) extended warranty. I think you can buy it as long your iPod is less than a year old. With AppleCare, you can get a free replacement if Apple can't fix the problem with your unit. I know of people who have gotten replacements that were actually newer models through AppleCare.

If yours is out of warranty and past the point of buying AppleCare, I know that there are third-party repair shops that fix them for less than Apple charges.

Does it do that on every movie?Yeah. And sometimes on songs it will just sit there for like five seconds at zero, and then start playing.
