Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

IPod Display-Frozen-Folder I have a iPod Mini. I dropped it while in the gym. Now, the display is stuck with a little folder and a 'caution' sign. While holding down the Menu and Center Wheel, an Apple logo displays momentarily, and then it goes right back to the above state. While plugged into my Dell PC, it doesn't recognize it as being connected. I just installed a new battery, but the new battery worked fine. I think this problem is surely associated with the drop at the gym. (I've dropped it before and nothing's happened.) Now what?

I need to unklock my ipod


Try this.....

Connect Ipod to your computer. Under file folder options, enable hidden files (there are different ways to do
this, depending on the operating system that you are using on your computer). Click on the Ipod, and
look for a file folder named "iPod_Control" and open it. Inside this folder, you will find another folder
named "Device". inside this folder, find a a file named "_locked".
Then do the follwing-

1) First rename the "_locked" file to "_unlocked". Disconnect the iPod and reset it.
2) If that did not solve the problem, delete all the text inside the aforementioned file. Save it, and
then disconnect the iPod and reset it.

3) If that still did not work, delete the file and then disconnect the iPod and reset it.

Keep in mind that this is not an Apple-sanctioned solution, so use caution when trying this,
and if you are not sure of what you are doing, backup any files before you alter or delete them.

Unlock ipod


Check the top lock switch.

If it's frozen, press the center button and the bottom button at the same time and hold it until you see a white apple on the screen. if it's an IPOD shuffle, i have no idea.

Problem about uploading pictures


First, make sure the pictures are in jpg format, and put the ones that you want on the iPod into a specific folder - you can even call it "iPod photos folder" if you want.
Then conenct the iPod to the computer, and then open up iTunes.
Left-click on the tab that says iPod Nano, if it doesn't come up automatically, and then select the Photos tab.
Select the drop down next to the line that says "Sync Photos from," and locate the folder that the photos are stored in.
It will add all photos that are in that folder to your iPod - may take several minutes depending on how many photos you are addding.
Once this option is selected, any photos that you add to this folder from here on out will be automatically added to the iPod whenever you connect the iPod to the computer.
On the iPod Nano, horizontally-biased photos display the best - wil ltake up the full screen of your Nano; but vertically-biased photos wil lstill show up.

Good luck!

My display shows contact support


Well...go to the website. The page for your model will show you how to do a system restore - this will result in all of your songs being erased, so it is a good idea to back up all the songs first.

Back the songs up by connecting your iPod to the computer, opening up the iPod icon in My Computer, and opening the music folder. Create a temporary folder on your desktop to store the music. Drag the music files from the music folder of the iPod to the temporary folder you have just created on the desktop. Now you can update the player, which will erase your songs, but your music will be available to redownload onto the iPod.

MP3 PLAYER WONT PLAY OR DOWNLOAD,BUT IT DOES DISPLAY READY SIGN


That's an australian player. A bit outmoded. You can plug into computer, double-click My Computer, right click the Technika (may list as a generic drive letter instead), and then open the music folder. Then find the folder where the songs are stored on your computer. Drag and drop from one folder to another. It's a real headache, are you sure you want to do this?

Double click My Computer when your Sansa player is connected, double-click on the player, and then open the music folder - drag and drop. Personally, I find windows media player easier, but to each his own.
