Hello,i have been reading about your problem,and i have forund a reason why this has happened.... The reason why it is showing this message,is because you have not put the correct file types on the ipod, (eg.protected cds,blank mp3s,corrupt audio files,or a unsupported file type....)

Thanks for your question,
have a nice day...

Iod scren displays a yeidl sign and folder file on the screen


Hi, As i understand you see a folder with exclamation mark on it...

So 1st you hav to try resting the ipod.... Try to press and hold the menu and the center button for approx 6 to 8 secs... then once you see a Apple logo release the buttons. this should work

Other solution would be restoring your ipod to factory settings by connecting it to computer and restoring it using itunes... then update the software as well

If not... try to connect the ipod to computer and then open Mycomputer....Right click on ipod.... then format it.... wait for the format process... then using itunes restore it to factory settings

This has to work
