This watch is compatible with iPod 5th generation (video); iPod Nano 2nd generation (aluminum) 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB; iPod 5th generation (video) 60GB and 80GB; iPod Nano 1st generation 1GB, 2GB, 4GB; and the iPhone.
First make sure that your iPod’s hold button isn’t on. This is the little switch at the top left corner of the iPod video that you can move to “lock” the iPod’s buttons. If this is on, you’ll see a little orange area at the top of the iPod nano and a lock icon on the iPod’s screen. If you see either of these, move the switch back and see if this fixes the problem.
If the hold switch wasn’t the problem do the following:
Move the hold switch to the on position and then move it back to off.
Hold down the Menu button on the clickwheel and the center button at the same time. Hold these together for 6-10 seconds. This should restart the iPod nano. You’ll know the iPod is restarting when the screen changes and the Apple logo appears.
If this doesn’t work at first, you should repeat step 4
The only thing that i can think of that would help would be to restore your iPod through iTunes. One of the updates might have gotten corrupted. Also, does it only freeze on certain songs or does it just freeze randomly?
press the centre button + menu button /or/ centre button + play button, during 10 seconds, it will restart and luckily it will work ok.
If that doesn't work, connect it to the computer, open iTunes, and the menu where the ipod is shown click "restore", this will whipe out your ipods memory. If even this doesn't work... take it to an Apple store.
