Hold the "Menu and Center button" until it shuts down, then when you se the apple, hold "Menu and Play/Pause button"

That will force the ipod into disk mode, it will allow you to restore the iPod with iTunes and re-upload the song onto it.

If this doesn't help try older ver. of itunes (ver. 7) http://www.oldapps.com/itunes.htm to restore it.
If this doesn't help you need to go to apple store and let them fix/change your ipod.

How to unlock ipod nano 4gb


Check the tab up on the top of the iPod and make sure that it is not showing orange. If it is, push it so that it is not showing orange anymore. If that doesn't work, hold down the center button and the top where it says "menu" then when you see the apple symbol appear on the screen continue to hold the center but then press and hold the play/pause key.

Buttons don't work on ipod nano


Hi,
Had the same probs with 4th gen nano. Keys frozen. Reset it loads of times etc etc.
BUT I HAVE NOW FOUND A SOLUTION. !!!!!!!!!!
Use a very sharp knife or razer blade and make a small gap at the bottom, back. Between the white bottom plate and back of your ipod. While the knif is in you will notice the keys start working!!!! I used a small peice of a playing card and wedged it in the gap, up the back, only about 10mm. Its worked ever since!!!!! Hurray
PASS ON THE SOLUTION AS THIS IS A COMMON FAULT.

Ipod Nano 8gb won´t synchronize


Hi,
Try this.
  1. Put the iPod into disk mode by holding the menu and middle keys together until the screen turns dark.
  2. Then quickly hold both he middle button and play/pause buttons until the iPod shows a check mark and the words disk mode at the top.
  3. ThenClick on iTunes to open it.
  4. Connect the iPod to the computer. You may have to do a restore depending on what iTunes says you need to do.
If this doesn't work, check the bottom of the ipod where you connect the cable. See if there are any bent pins. These are very fragile and can be damaged if you insert or pull the cable out the wrong way. Hope that helps.

Apple iPod Model A1136, 30 GB.


First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the left, here's how you reset:

You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.

Songs will not play!


I AM THE ANTIMAC! (Get a Zune - or any other generic mp3 player)
Hrrmm, could it be the file format? iPod plays m4a files, so if they're wma or something like that, it won't work. Have you played the current songs on it before with any luck? Did it stop in the middle of a song, at the end of a song or did it not work at all? With what method did you get the music on there? Download (Free/at cost?), Ripped from CD (What format? Using what program?).
