Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I recently purchased a used 3rd gen 8GB iPod Nano. Upon receipt, it was working perfectly with the pre-existing music on it. Since then, I reformatted the iPod for Windows, as I own a PC and the iPod had previously been formatted for a Mac. Now it boots only to the language select screen and resets whenever any button is pressed or the scroll wheel is moved. Even if the iPod is connected to my computer (computer doesn't have any problems recognizing the device) it does this whenever I touch any control on the iPod. It resets, goes to the apple logo boot screen, and goes to the language select screen again (repeat). If I don't touch it it stays at the language select screen or goes to the "connected" screen eventually if it's still connected, so it's not resetting spontaneously or anything. I've restored the iPod several times, with different firmware versions, and it hasn't solved the problem. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hi,

I have never heard of or seen that kind of behavior... but you could try doing a reset on the ipod...

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
that should do a reset... hopefully that would clear up any strange things in your ipods operating system... and should get it back on track. you should not loose any data or songs by doing this.
Unless you need to contact the nearest Service Center.

Thanks.

How can I use JVC AVX810 with Iphone? Currently IPOD works fine with the USB cable but IPHONE is not recognised. Maybe there is an adaptor that can solve it?


JVC KS-PD100 iPod Interface Adapter (257KSPD100, sold separately). This optional iPod Interface Adapter supports audio playback for the following iPod models - iPod click-wheel (3rd gen), iPod photo (4th gen), iPod mini (1st/2nd gen), iPod nano (1st/2nd/3rd/4th gen), iPod video (5th gen), and iPod classic (80/120/160GB). The KS-PD100 is not compatible with the iPod touch (1st/2nd/3rd gen), iPod nano (5th gen), or iPhone (2G/3G/3GS). This iPod interface will also not charge the iPod nano (4th generation). *Apple firmware updates may change functionality results.

There u go.....

Ipod nano 3rd gen says I have less space than I do


Yes, it does seem like a rip off, but that little bit that seems to be gone is actually being used by the software that makes the iPod work, without it you would not be able to use your iPod at all. So don't worry, it is completely normal that you are missing half a GB.

My Jamo i300 will not charge my new ipod nano (4th Gen).


not likely the new 4 gen Ipod has different pin set within its dock connector system for the video output which has made many 3rd party accessories no longer able to charge the ipod but it will still play music
