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!

You may have a motherboard failure problem. I would ask you to check the drivers and update them but will be hard to do if you can't get past load screen. You best bet may to get a copy of system recovery and boot pc with the disk installed. Wipe computer completely clean and reinstall windows.

'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 :)

Screen is frozen


Are you saying that nothing at all happens every time, or sometimes you get the wrong thing i.e. you touch Prog and Rep screen comes up? Have you ever recalibrated your screen? This should be done regularly - at least every six months, but I do mine monthly. The catch is that in order to do this, you need to access the Set Menu and if your screen is not responding at all this would be impossible. In the Set Menu on the last page (I think) there is a "Color Touch Screen Adjust" button. Use this to access the calibration screen, and you must touch exactly in the centre of the two crosshairs until they turn green. Instructions are on Page 31 of my manual.

Always freeze


Firefox will use a lot of disk space over time for temporary use. You might try starting up and run the Disk Utilities program to repair disk permissions.
