Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.
When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time are preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on

Frozen ipod nano 8gb


Press your menu button and the center select button at the same time until you see an apple screen. It's hanging on you and that happens when 1. your computer is doing too much at the same time, or 2. the nano got jarred somehow.

Ipod nano 8GB waiting and frozen problem


ok i'm guessing that you're software is corrupted and you don't know about the resetting of the ipod when it turns on hold menu and the center button at the same time it should reset the ipod and this might work.... if it doesn't hold play and the center button at the same time until you get a screen saying disk mode when you do download a program named idump it allows you to save your music off your ipod as long as you can get it to read on your computer ok once you have all your music downloaded restore your ipod in itunes... this should work it worked everytime my ipod did something funky like this trust me my nano gave me the sad ipod face for weeks and i'd let it sit for about 30 mins then turn it on again and it would be fine so i decided to restore it and i haven't had a problem since i hope this helps

Ipod nano 8GB waiting and frozen problem


Very, very silly move. Apple builds Mac's so why would they use windows formatting?? Search for and download a trial version of the program macdrive. This will allow you to look at drives as though they were on a mac and also format them. Plug in your iPod. Find the right drive letter for your iPod, right click on it, and select 'Format Mac Disk...' Then itunes should see your iPod and you can restore it.
