    My ipod screen shows that it is connected but it doesn't appear in iTunes. I tried to disconnect it but it won't work. I shut down my computer and unplugged the USB but the screen remains the same. It still shows it's connected. I tried resetting it but it won't work. It's not lock but there's a lock icon on the top left of the screen.

ITunes does not recognize my iPod Nano 8GB Silver. It recognizes my iPod 2GB. Why is this happening? I have a Dell XPS and I am using Microsoft Word 2010.

Just reset the 8GB nano by holding the center and menu buttons at the same time for about 6 seconds. It usually works for me with my iPod classic 120GB.

Frozen ipod nano 8gb

Press your menu button and the center select button at the same time until you see an apple screen. It's hanging on you and that happens when 1. your computer is doing too much at the same time, or 2. the nano got jarred somehow.

IPod nano 8gb problem. Just hangs ........ Shanni

turn your hold button on
press and hold menu + select (center) buttons at once until the ipod goes off, so it will restart with the ipod logo. if it that is done successful it will work without any problem.

If the problem persists scan the ipod for any viruses.

if that doesnt work you wil have to use itunes to restore it but with this you will loose all your data.

wish you luck
