Question about Apple iPod nano 3rd Generation
I own a 3rd gen ipod nano. When I hooked it up to my computer, it said it was in recovery mode and i needed to restore it. I did that, but now my computer tells me that it had detected a corrupted ipod. Can you help me fix it?
You will want to force the iPod into disc mode before reconnecting to your computer for the restore process within iTunes. Below is a step by step on forcing an iPod into disc mode just in case you need the information.
Putting ipod into disc mode http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1363 Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.
