Question about Apple iPod nano

Locked ipod nano

I have a 4 GB Red Special Edition iPod Nano.  I placed some chapters of my talking book on it and clicked to start--nothing.  Now it seems locked, I cannot get it to do anything.  The light won't even turn off!  I tried the possible solution of holding the menu and center buttons down for 30 seconds and it did not work.  Any other ideas? How can I turn it off & restart?  Also, it will not sync now with my iTunes (I tried that as well.)  Thanks for any help you can give me!

Did you first slide the hold switch to HOLD and then back before holding the menu and center buttons down together? That worked for my iPod nano 4th generation after it "locked up" and became non-responsive.

How to Unlock an iPod Nano Code
With the latest iPod Nano model, you can set a four-digit code and lock all intruders from accessing your iPod. In order to use the device's functions again, you need to enter the correct code. However, if you happen to lose or forget the code, you will need to find another way to unlock your iPod Nano.
Things You'll Need:
iPod Nano Mac or PC computer iPod USB cable
1 Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod Nano. Plug the other end of the USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC computer. Open the iTunes program by using the Dock on a Mac or the Start menu on a PC.
2 Select your iPod Nano from the "Devices" list in the main iTunes window. Click on the "Sync" button to make a connection between your computer and your iPod Nano.
3 Click on the "Eject" symbol once the syncing process is complete. Remove your iPod Nano from the USB cable. The iPod's lock code will now be reset and you will be able to access all features again.
4 Navigate to the "Screen Lock" option in the iPod menu to lock your iPod's screen again. Since your iPod's lock code was just reset, you will be prompted to select a new four-digit code.

Memory loss on ipod


The ipod nanos the smallest product in the Apple iPod line. The fourth generation Nano comes in two different capacities, each capable of holding thousands of songs.
    Capacities
  1. The fourth generation iPod Nano comes in 8 GB and 16 GB models. The 8 GB version can hold 2,000 songs, and the 16 GB version can hold 4,000 songs.
  2. Tips
  3. Song capacity estimates are based on music encoded in Apple's proprietary format at a standard, average bitrate. The higher the bitrate, the better the quality. Songs deviating from Apple's standard (for example, CD-quality music or high bitrate MP3s) will use more disk space.
  4. History
  5. Nano's predecessor, the iPod Mini, was released on January 6, 2004, and was available with a 4 GB hard drive. The Nano was first released on September 7, 2005, and was the first iPod to use flash memory. It was first available in 2 GB and 4 GB versions. The fourth generation Nano was released on September 9, 2008.
  6. Size
  7. The fourth generation iPod Nano is 3.6" tall and 1.5" wide.
  8. Video
  9. The third generation Nano, released on September 5, 2007, was the first Nano to feature video playback. Storing videos on Nano can dramatically reduce the amount of songs it can hold.

Nano and iPod "Color"


Upon first glance it would be safe to assume that the iPod nano is a "micro" version of the iPod "Color" models, and in a few ways this is a safe statement. Both systems use the "Clickwheel" (which places pressure sensitive navigation buttons underneath the scroll wheel), have color displays, have software that uses color for all interface elements and applications, use the "Myriad" font, and are capable of displaying photographs in addition to playing music and transporting files. At 3.5 inches tall, 1.6 inches wide, and 0.27 inches thick the iPod nano is both physically smaller, compared to 4.1 inches tall, 2.4 inches wide, and 0.75 inches thick for the iPod "Color" models, and holds less data on 2.0 GB or 4.0 GB of Flash Memory, compared to 20 GB, 30 GB, 40 GB, or 60 GB hard drives for the iPod "Color" models. However, there are also some important differences between the iPod nano and iPod "Color" models as well. Unlike the iPod "Color" models, the iPod nano lacks video out, and as a result, can display photographs on the internal display "loaded" from a computer, but cannot display photographs on a television or projector. The iPod nano also does not support the iPod Camera Connector or third-party solutions, so photos cannot be transferred from a camera either. However, in addition to the calendar, contacts, and notes software from previous models, the iPod nano includes additional software functionality, such as a "Screen Lock" security feature, a stopwatch, and a "world clock".
