If you make the investment in an iPod, you need to remember it is a small computer, complete with a hard drive. Whatever you do, don't drop it. Hard drives don't handle shock well and you might end up losing your iPod and your iTunes collection of songs.
If you drop your iPod and it appears frozen, you can try to do a hard reset. To do this, press "Menu" and "Play/Pause" or "Select," depending on your iPod model. If the hard reset doesn't work, you're probably going to have to send the iPod back to Apple for repairs or replacement.
