When I turn on my iPod Nano, I get a screen that says 'Disk Mode' at the top with a black checkmark displayed in the middle, and a message at the bottom that says 'Ok to disconnect': the problem is that my Nano is not connected. Nothing I do corrects the problem. The Nano is frozen on this screen.
I tried holding down the 'Menu' button for 10 seconds... nothing; tried holding down the center button for 10 seconds... nothing; did the same thing for the other 3 buttons... still no changes. I have tried charging the nono by connecting to the PC... that works fine. But the screen that says 'Disk Mode' at the top with the black checkmark displayed in the middle, and the message at the bottom that says 'Ok to disconnect' is still there and the Nano is not responding. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do?
Your iPod is in Disk Mode. Press and hold the menu and select buttons together until an apple appears. then it should be Ok. More info can be found here: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=93651

Simply reset the iPod
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.
Hi! I think there is a virus in your iPod. Check your ipod with an antivirus when it is in diskmode. Then you need to open itunes and restore your ipod and will restore it to factory settings.
And if it doesn't work then Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect.
After doing this open latest version of itunes and then restore your ipod to factory settings by selecting it from itunes.
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.
I don't know it by model number but the generation are easy to define.
A first generation nano is either black or white. It is made out of the same material as a standard Ipod at the time. Comes in 1 gig and 2 gig only
A second generation nano is multi colored and made from a metal case. Similar in design to a mini. The edges are round as well. comes in 2 gig and 4 gig.
A third generation nano is a different size than 1 and 2. it has a bigger screen on it. Can play videos as well. Comes in 2 gig, 4 gig, and 8 gig as well.
