Question about Apple iPod nano
My nano froze during a song, which it's done before, so i reset it by holding down the menu and select buttons. after this, a screen popped up saying "use itunes to restore," so i plugged the nano in to my computer and, when itunes asked me to restore, i did so. it displayed the restoring progress bar for probably a minute or so.
but when itunes detected my supposedly restored nano, the restore hadn't taken effect, and it asked me to restore again. so i did, and the same thing happened, except this time it only showed the progress bar for a couple of seconds.
the "use itunes to restore" screen is still the only thing to come up on my nano, and restoring using itunes is still ineffectual.
help? ive got the same problem but my computer freezes when i try to restore it and it wont open itunes with the nano connected it will not let me reset with the menu and play/pause buttons being held pls help
All i did was let the power die then when it did i plugged it back in the computer and it works again

Tips for a great answer:
Reset an iPod:
Toggle the Hold switch to on, then back to off (none of the red is showing).
Press and hold down the Menu and Select buttons (as shown in the picture) for 6-10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo.
For many problems, you may have to do this several times. The iPod may be hung up on several things so you have to tell it: "Reset that. Now reset this. Yes, reset that too" and etc.
Restore an iPod:
Warning: When you restore and iPod, you...
... delete everything on it (songs, pictures, movies, files, games, firmware, etc.) Hey! That means any stuff that's on the iPod, but not in the iTunes library, will be lost. After deleting everything, iTunes reloads the iPod software with a fresh copy (referred to as "factory settings").
When the iPod is connected, select it in the Source list in iTunes. Under the Summary tab, there is a button named "Restore." Click it. Select the restore option you want then sit back. A progress bar will show you the status of the restore. When it's done, you'll see a message like "Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore." Now the iPod will show a progress bar. Do not disconnect during this part. When it's done, the iTunes Setup Assistant will prompt you to name and configure the iPod.
If that Put ipod in disk mode by toggle hold switch off then on and when apple logo appers hold action(middle button)and bottom button until a tick appers.Then connect to itunes.
