Re: my nano hang!
Hi, If your ipod just hangs, have you tried doing a reset by holding the menu and middle buttons?
If that doesn't work, before you connect it to your laptop, make sure that you have the latest iTunes loaded on your laptop.
Hold the menu and middle buttons until the screen goes black and then quickly hold the middle and play/pause button until you see a checkmark and the words disk mode. Now connect it to your computer and do a restore.
If it doesn't check the connector at the bottom. You may have some bent pins in the connector at the bottom. Unfortunately, that will cause communication problems with the computer and ipod. Hope that helps.

iDevices (iPod, iPhone, etc) usually can only be managed through iTunes. So the first thing you should do is install iTunes (you can download it off Apple's website).
After installing iTunes and connecting your iPod, you must open My Computer then double click your iPod's icon. Then, click on Tools, Options, and in the View tab check the "Show hidden files and folders" option. You should then see an "iPod_Control" folder. Inside it there'll be a "Music" folder, with all your songs. Just drag them back to your computer.
But remember: you can only manage your iPod's music through iTunes. If you add or change songs on your iPod without using iTunes, these songs won't be recognized.
Try resetting it by toggling the hold switch and putting it back in the off position. Then press and hold the center button and the menu button for about 6 seconds until the ipod goes off and the Apple logo appears. After that, it should work like new. Hope this helps.
flick the hold button back and forth a few times, then, making sure that it is unlocked press and hold the menu and middle button together. hold them down until it goes dark and the apple mark comes up. hope this helps?
