  1. Remove your iPod Shuffle from iTunes and also remove your shuffle from the USB dock.
  2. Turn off the iPod Shuffle by moving the off/on button to the left (when off you shouldn’t see green). Wait a couple of seconds and then turn the Shuffle back on by moving the off/on button to the right (you should see green again).
  3. Your iPod Shuffle should be reset.
Hope this works for you

Unfreezing ipod otuch 2nd generation

Hi linda_wat834
When the Apple Logo is stuck
If this happens, put the iPod into Disk Mode through the diagnostic menu. Then connect the iPod to your computer and update or restore the iPod.
Sometimes you can get away with just updating the iPod, so try that first, but usually you have to restore the iPod .
As always make backups of your music files, because the restore procedure will eliminate them.

How to unfreez an ipod


To reset iPod touch, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time until you see the Apple logo show up on the screen:

How to unfreeze or reset an iPod Classic 1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
2. Now press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, which may take about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.



  • If you are having problems resetting the iPod, go ahead and set it on a flat surface. Then make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also be sure that you are pressing the Menu button towards the outside of the click wheel, not near the center.
  • If the above mentioned steps do not work, then you can try connecting your iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect the iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
How to reset an iPod Nano (1st, 2nd, and 3rd Generation) This one is similar to how you would do it for an iPod Classic:
1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
2. Now press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, which may take about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
You can also reset an iPod Mini in the same way as the above steps.
How to reset or unfreeze an iPod Shuffle 1. First , eject your iPod shuffle from iTunes, if you have it connected.
2. Then remove the iPod shuffle from the USB dock.
3. Move the switch that is on the top of the iPod shuffle to the off position.

4. Wait 5 seconds.
5. Move the switch back to the on position so green stripe will be visible in either position.
And that's it! Hopefully, now that you know these steps, you don't have to keep taking out the battery to unfreeze your iPod! Any comments or questions, make sure to write below! Enjoy! Source: Apple Support

How to "Unfreeze" your iPod

If you have owned you iPod for about a year, you will notice that it will freeze up every once and a while. If it has not done this yet, believe me, it will. When it happens you will probably panic, like I did. But don't, there is a simple way to unfreeze it that works almost every time.
Resetting your iPod

Hold the middle button(select button) and the "Menu" button on your iPod down for about 7-10 seconds, or until you see the Apple logo appear in the middle of the screen.
Wait for iPod to start back up. Now it should be working properly.If you own an iPod Touch then hold down the "Power/Reset" button(the one on top) and the "Home" button(the one on the front with the square in the middle) for at least 10 seconds or until you see the Apple logo.
Restoring your iPod
If this does not work, you can try "Restoring" it. When you restore an iPod, you are extracting the "Flawed" software and putting new software back onto it. So first plug your iPod into your computer, then open up iTunes and select your iPod in the list of devices to left. Now right under the big picture of your iPod you'll see a button labeled "Restore," click it. Restoring will wipe all your music, movies and pictures off of your iPod, but if you restore you iPod on the same computer that you sync it too, then you'll be fine, you just need to re-sync your iPod once you're done restoring your it. Restoring will take about 10-15 minutes.
Hope this helps!

My ipod nano #7l6528edvq5 is not recognize by my pc and the port usb is correct what can i do for changing my music on

The iPod Nano digital media player, like any electronic device, can freeze and quit working properly. When this happens, reset the device to restore functionality and unfreeze the device. Performing this reset process allows you to continue using your iPod Nano device without losing any of your digital media content.

Press and hold the "Sleep / Wake" button on your iPod Nano. Press and hold the "Volume Down" button while continuing to hold the "Sleep / Wake" button. Wait approximately eight seconds for the Apple logo to appear on your iPod Nano's display. You have now unfrozen and reset your iPod Nano.
