    Periodically double click the home button and close all the apps in the recently used dock. Then power off and then back on the iPod. This frees up memory. The 4G only has 256 MB of memory.


    Next try:

    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost

    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at

    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    - Reset all settings

    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.

    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.

    - Restore from backup. See:                                 

    iOS: How to back up           

    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.

    i have  done each one of those steps several times and still have the same problem, could my motherboard/ logicboard be faulty. can i replace it with a larger one, i have an 8 gb. i would like to get a 16gb or 32gb. depends on price and availability.

    Maybe. Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store since it appears you have a hardware problem.

    Purchasing a 4G with more capacity will not help unless it is a logic board problem.
