Connect it to the computer you normally sync with.

Open iTunes then disconnect the iPod.

If that doesn't work you can "hard reset" by restoring it to factory defaults. Doing this also erases everything you have on it so you will lose your movies, music, files, etc.

Connect it to the computer and open iTunes.

Click "Restore" and select "Restore" or "Restore and Update" to make sure you're on the latest firmware.

Good luck.

Unlocking iPod

You can unlock iPod in one of two ways:

  • Enter the combination on iPod using the same controls you used to set the combination. If you do not enter the correct combination, the digits onscreen flash red. When you enter the combination correctly, iPod will unlock and return you to the last viewed screen.
  • Connect iPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one iPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.

If you can't unlock iPod using either of these methods, you can restore your iPod to factory settings. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to iPod.

If you want to change the primary computer that your iPod is associated with, do this:

  1. Restore your iPod. Warning: The restore process cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data.
  2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
  3. Open iTunes and synchronize.

Are you even using iTunes??? What kind of computer dya have? Windows XP, Vista, 7?

Hanging of apple ipod


Please note that to use the iTunes sync and the Nano itself, you will need to meet the minimum specs for your PC. So if you don't meet that spec for your product, you will cause a critical failure on your PC. And if your computer is old or is lacking the requirments then you should:

1. Sync a small amount at a time.

2. Upgrade your computer to meet the minimum requirements, (and if you do meet the minimum know that only means that you can sync and it isn't saying you will definately sync)
You should meet at least the optimum spec requirments otherwise you will crash the computer or lock up the Nano.

3. If you haven't already install the Nano's software into the PC, then download all needed updates before syncing.

P.S. Please post one problem to your issue, not multiple with similar issues worded differently or worded wrong, or just mis-typed.
