This is simple but good to know.

Select your language.
If you have an iPod nano or Fifth Generation iPod (iPod with video):

  1. Scroll down to the last menu option but don't select it.
  2. Scroll up one menu item. This should be Settings.
  3. Press the Center (Select) button. This takes you to the Settings menu.
  4. Scroll down to the last menu option but don't select it; in English, this is the "Reset All Settings" option.
  5. Scroll up to the third menu item from the bottom one. This should be Language.
  6. Press the Center button to select Language.
  7. Select your preferred language from the list.

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.   This works with the IPod Nano, that much I know....

If this does not work.

Reset your iPod—Depending on how much you've used your iPod since selecting the language, simply resetting your iPod may cause it to forget the current language setting, enabling you to select a new one. See "How to Reset iPod" for instructions.
  • Connected. Eject before disconnecting
  • Sync in Progress. Please wait...
  • Do not disconnect

Note: When you reset your iPod, all your music and data files are saved, though you may need to reset some customized settings.

Language choice on my brand new ipod


Hey tkcccombs,

If you've accidentally chosen the wrong display language, there are a couple of steps you can try to reset the default language.

First, I would suggest attempting to reset the iPod. You can generally do this by first toggling the "Hold" button from the "On" to "Off" position, and then pressing (and holding) both the "Menu" and center "Select" button for six to eight seconds. According to information provided by Apple, you may need to repeat this step depending on how long you've had the iPod.

Second, you may wish to try updating your iPod's software using iTunes. This will require that your iPod be connected directly to your computer while the software is being updated.

Next, you'll want to go to disconnect your iPod from your computer once the software update is complete, and go to the main menu by pressing the "Menu" button. The main menu's title should display "iPod" no matter what language you initially chose.

The last step - actually choosing the new language - varies depending on what generation and type of iPod you own, so I'd suggest checking out this link through Apple's support website for specific instructions:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Change the settings


i got one off ebay just a few fays ago and the language was stuck in chinese, so after just testing the MP34 i found out how to change the langauge into English.

Click into the 'two rotating items',
Then, go down to the 4th settings, i.e 04/11. This is Languages.
After entering that, click into the 2nd option. i.e 02/25. This is English settings.
And hopefully it should be done.
