No, it resets the ipod. i guess technically it does, but it is just meant to reset your ipod if it were to freeze up or something. you just have to push the top button until you get back to the main menu.

What you can do for that Lisa is you can press and hold the middle button and the top that says menu. Hold those until you see an apple symbol then you'll need to press and hold the middle button and the bottom button that has the play/pause symbols on it.

Locked i pod nano 8gb

Check the tab up on the top of the iPod. Make sure you do not see an orange color at the top. If you do, that means that the iPod is in the locked position. All you need to do is push the button that is up there back to the left and it will unlock it.

If that is not the case and it is not working properly you will need to press and hold the middle button with the top button that says menu. When you see the apple logo come on the screen, continue to hold the middle button but press the pause/play button.

I plugged in my i pod and came back a hour later and the screen was black and was frozen and none of the buttons would work

you will need to reset your ipod this will not delete songs. 1 Toggle the Hold switch on and off (slide it to HOLD and then back again).
2 Press and hold Menu and the Center button for at least 6 seconds, until the
Apple logo appears.
If iPod nano won’t turn on or respond
â Make sure the Hold switch isn’t set to HOLD.
â The iPod nano battery might need to be recharged. Connect iPod nano to your
computer or to an Apple USB Power Adapter and let the battery recharge. Look for
the lightning bolt icon on the iPod nano screen to verify that iPod nano is receiving
a charge.
To charge the battery, connect iPod nano to a USB 2.0 port on your computer.

to unlock plug it into original computer...if thats not enough open itunes.
If it is still asking for code and you can't remember it try this:(I got this from John on here and it worked for me)- with ipod still plugged in...
Go to My computer- click on tools - folder options - then the VIEW tab - tick the box for 'show hidden files and folders' - click OK -
now click on ipod (in my computer) a light file called Ipod control double click- then Device double click - then _locked file right click and delete - disconnect ipod from computer.
this should have taken the code screen away and you're at main menu. you can reset your code.... but sometimes you need to re-boot your ipod.
You can do that by flicking the hold switch over and back...then holding in the middle button and menu together until the Apple logo appears and release.

First, connect your iPod to your computer, slide hold switch on and off, and hold the Middle + Menu button for 30 seconds.

If that doesn't work, disconnect your iPod and slide switch on and off, and hold the Middle + Menu button for 90 seconds or less.
