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 4th gen nano is frozen on the language selection screen.


That could be one of two problems: Either the cord of the click wheel has been disconnected from its socket which will be an easy fix and you only have to pay labor, or you may just need a new click wheel which should still be cheap.

Try resetting the ipod while its connected to the computer by holding both the menu and center button at the same time for 6-10 seconds until you see an apple appear on the screen. You may need to repeat the reset. If this fails your looking at a hardware issue most likely. Good Luck.

Try this: Press and hold the wake/sleep button and the home button simultaneously for ten seconds and the apple logo should appear on the screen. Release the buttons and it should work like normal. Hope this helps.

You need to reset your ipod. Flip the hold switch on then off, then press select button and menu button at same time. Hold for 10 seconds or so. Ipod should shut off and reboot to apple screen. If this doesn't work first time try again. This should solve any stuck screen problems. Mine was stuck on pioneer screen and this operation fixed it.

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.
