Question about Apple iPod nano 3rd Generation

1 Answer

Freezes up when connected to accessories

The IPod works fine connecting to Itunes on the computer, but when it's connected to any other device such as an AC adapter or FM transmitter, it freezes up and won't function until it's unplugged from that device. I've tried the 4 R's and even resetting the IPod when it's plugged into the non-functioning accessory but nothing corrects the problem.

Itunes freezing when ipod is connected


Need to reformat your ipod - don't disconnect the ipod until you hit eject - ever you should be able to use it again try a different cord and reformat then have fun cause you get to reload all the music unless you were able to save your iTunes library

My 40Gig 3rd (?)generation IPOD freezes Itunes, and having reset it several times still does not work in Itunes. It will play songs as a stand alone unit but is not recognised by itunes or my computer...


With this issue if when you connect your ipod to itunes it freezes
it is one of 2 issues

1) Your ipod has an error on the disk and the computer cannot read so it freezes - in this case it is a hard ware issue with the ipod and you need to get it repaired

2) Your anti- virus is trying to scan the ipod for virus and it can so rather then letting the ipod connect to your cpu it freezes the process till you disconnect the ipod -

A great test would be if you can take this to another cpu and try it if it freezes that cpu too then it is the ipod - if it works fine then it is the anti-virus you need to stop the scan and fix process.

Connect your iPod to your computer, run iTunes, click on your iPod under "Devices" on the left side of iTunes, and click on the "Restore" button (towards the right) to restore your iPod. You will then need to resync your music and other media to the iPod.

ITunes screen freezes on connecting the iPod. The ipod is not detected by iTunes even in disk mode. No menu of iTunes opens up when iPod is connected


if itunes is freezing when connecting the ipod then 1 of 2 things are happening

the ipod has an error on the disk and needs to be replaced or your anti- virus is going to scan your ipod for virus and can because its an ipod -

so test your ipod with another cpu that will tell you alot

if it freezes itunes on 2 different cpu then its the ipod -if it works fine then its your anti-virus - you need to disable or remove

IPod recognized by iTunes for about three seconds.


Use the Five Rs to restore the iPod. You will lose the data that is currently on it if you restore but you can always re-sync the data to the iPod. http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/five_rs/

Ipod classic won't show up in computer or itunes


I would try a reinstall of itunes. Or go into your preferences and delete it from your devices list and let it reconnect. You need to be using the newest version of itunes also. Hope that helped.

How can I use iTunes to put photos on iPod nano?


"You can easily copy images from your computer to the iPod nano using photo sync in iTunes. Please note that you cannot import photos into iPod nano directly from a digital camera or media reader. If you connect an Apple iPod Camera Connector or Belkin Media Reader for iPod w/Dock Connector to iPod nano, you'll get a message on your iPod screen that says, ""The currently attached accessory is not supported by this iPod."" If you connect a Belkin Digital Camera Link for iPod w/ Dock Connector to iPod nano, you'll see a ""Do not disconnect"" message briefly, then the main iPod menu appears. For information on other iPod accessories that don't work with iPod nano, Some accessories that work with other iPod models won't work with iPod nano. Here are some items to note and the affected accessories: Photo Import iPod nano cannot import photos from an accessory (use iTunes to copy photos to iPod nano). It will not work with third-party card readers or with the Apple Camera Connector. If you connect such a device, you'll see an error message that displays for about a minute and reads, ?The currently attached accessory is not supported by this iPod.? Voice Recorders (Microphones) Like iPod mini, iPod nano does not work with third-party voice recorders. Apple iPod Remote Because iPod nano does not have a remote port, it won't work with any accessory that requires it, such as Apple iPod Remote. Headphones Port Location The headphones port on iPod nano is located on the bottom, therefore, it won't work with any third-party accessory that requires that this port be located on the top. No Video Out iPod nano does not support video out through the dock connector or the headphone port. iPod nano is not compatible with the Apple iPod AV Cable designed for iPod with color display (and iPod photo). If you need to use any of the above devices, you'll need to use an iPod model that supports the accessory. "
