Welcome to the Forums!

Stuff to check:

Does your music play normally under iTunes?
Did you eject and disconnect your iPod properly after you finished working with it ("Do not disconnect" is not on the display)?
Does this happen to all your songs, or just some or even one?
Are you positive you didn't pause it? (Just kidding. )

it happens to all the songs. I can't get one to play. I am sure that I didn't pause it. other things just works pefectly. I can upload song in the ipod.
I want to know how can I delete songs in the ipod. can I use my computer to play the songs in the ipod? I did enable it as hard disk. I go to check it. I see three folders, but I can't see any songs in the ipod hard disk. is there any way to view it?

To delete songs in the ipod, just go into your preferences when the ipod is connected, click on the ipod tab, then select "update manually." Then, you can go into your ipod and manually delete and reload the songs. Have you tried playing the songs through itunes as jonnny suggested? It could be you have a bad rip of the songs and you may need to reimport them.

Since you say your music plays fine in iTunes, there's a couple more things to ask:

Is this a brand new mini?
Have you ever gotten music to play on your mini?

If not, then you've probably got a broken mini in your hands. Looks like a job for Apple Support! (Play superhero theme music of your choice)

If you've had your mini for a while, and/or you have gotten music to play in the past, then...try uninstalling and reinstalling the latest version of iTunes, as well as updating the software in your mini with the latest iPod updater (yes, do it again, just to make sure).

If it doesn't work out, then go ahead with the service request.

I've got the same problem. My mini turned 1 yr. old on May 3rd, and all of a sudden its decided to stop playing. I ran the ipod update software and basically reset it, but still hangs up (it sometimes will play a few seconds of a song, with very loud crackles and pops). Any one else see this happen?
