SOURCE: Apple Ipod Nano does not play songs

It could be that the Format type is not supported. Like OGG isnt supported. I would look into using a different OS on it like Podzilla or RockBox

SOURCE: iTunes won't recognize my iPod nao (3rd gen., 4 gb)

Try put the cord in a diffrent port or slot besides the one you normally use. Some times they short out. Mines did. Or you could use someone else computer.

SOURCE: Ipod turns on and works - cant hear song playing

Check the volume using the buttons on it and also in your settings/volume limit. If that doesn't work, resync it with iTunes and see if there is a parental control in place preventing music to be played.

IPOD NANO SONGS ARENT WORKING!!!


Test the songs that are not playing on the iPod in iTunes and see if the original file is still playable on iTunes if the song still plays re-sync your iPod could be when iTunes copied the song it must have failed or timed out, if that fails re-syncing try restoring you iPod Nano i have had this problem before and I just re-synced and it worked fine!

8GB ipod nano will not play songs


Try resynching your IPOD with Itunes on your computer then try to play again. If that does not work please respond and we can try another option. Also after you synch try the update option on Itunes as well that could fix any problems on the sofware side of your IPOD.

Plug your Ipod into Itunes. Restore you Ipod to factory settings. Reload you song back into ITunes.

Are you using play lists and is your Ipod set to auto sync?

Frozen iPod Nano


Press and hold the center button while holding down the menu button. This will reboot your Ipod. Check your IPod cable to see if its shorted. If might have transferred a song and crash in the middle of the transfer.

OK. Not that I know exactly what your issue is but I can definitely see a problem pattern. Couple of ideas...what are u playing this on...headphones or speakers....change to a different output medium...if you are using the FM transmitter...try it without it...use headphones etc. My thought is perhaps whatever you are playing on is shorted out and possibly sending power back into the ipod causing erratic behavior and/or reboot lockup. Second...clean the entire Ipod (reset to factory) and connect it to a different computer and transfer just ONE song and play it. Let me know about how this works out...i am curious about your issue.
