Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

Frozen Screen I have a frozen screen which says "Disk Mode", then there is a large "tick" in the centre of the screen, and another message saying "OK to disconnect". Nothing I try unfreezes this - I have tried connecting it to ITunes and all the music can be accessed through there but not through the Ipod. Gren UK

I do not know which ipod you have, but here are instructions on how to get a nano in and out of DISK MODE:



To turn iPod Disk mode off:

  1. Toggle the hold switch on and off
  2. Press and Hold the Select and the Menu button for more than ten seconds
  3. The normal selection screen should appear, your iPod is out of Disk mode.
To turn iPod Disk mode on:
  1. Toggle the hold switch on and off
  2. Press and Hold the Select and the Menu button for six+ seconds
  3. Release both buttons when the Apple logo appears
  4. Press and Hold the Select and Play button until the Disk Mode text appears.
If it does not work, you may need to reset your ipod. The following link has extensive instructions on that procedure for many types of ipods.
Good luck my friend!

Ipod touch frozen


Try this
  1. Power off the device (Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the the iPod touch to turn off.
  2. Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting the USB cable to iPod. When you reconnect the USB to iPod, the device should then power on. 
  3. Continue holding the Home button while iPod starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo.
  4. When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message:
  5. Restore and it'll download ~240mb firmware and you're done
But you will lose all your data and you will have to jailbreak it again.

'disc mode'displayed in window, large tick and o.k to disconnect. machine will not respond.


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 for any reason this does not resolve your disc mode/frozen iPod issue please do let me know and remember to rate :)
