Ipod nano problem

Firstly i must say that i know very little about computers, so sorry if i leave out any critical info.
Going travelling with my girlfriend and i wanted to store my tunes on computer, giving me a back up, incase i lose my ipod abroad. Brother in law somehow downloaded all my tunes onto his computer, creating a file which i know is stored on his pc. Returning home i was listening to ipod and everything seemed fine. That night went onto itunes with pod plugged in to download new tunes. First a logo of a black half filled battery, with black lightening bolt appeared on my pod. Next message came up on computer saying, ipod in recovery mode please restore? Then on unplugging ipod it says on ipod screen in various landuages, please restore ipod using itunes. My pod no longer works and itunes is not recognising it! Since i have not stored all my tunes in itunes library i am apprehensive to restore as i know i will lose all my music. My brother in law still has the file of my tunes on his computer. If i do restore my pod is there any way i can get all my music back onto pod from that file? Why did this problem happen in the first place? In future should i just drag my tunes to itunes library to act as a backup, which means i could restore ipod with no worries of losing my music?
Thankyou for taking the time to ponder this one and i look forward to hearing from you as we leave the country in four days and would like to not be tune less!?
Best wishes

Hello blair,I Have my own I-pod so I hope this will re asure you. First I think you should restore your I tunes as long as your brother has your songs too. Then ask him to create a CD of all your songs, which is not hard at all. then take the CD and open I-Tunes. Place the CD into your hard drive and I-Tunes should pick up the CD. Then download the content of the CD onto I-Tunes. You Will Now have all your songs on I-Tunes like before. Now plug in your I-Pod and continue like It's the first time you have pluged in your i-pod! hope this helps! Rosebetts xxx

Restoring nano for windows


Mac and Windows are so different you have to restore your iPod to make is work with one or the other.
unfortunately there is no solution to this issue except. go to kinkos or an internet cafe that has macs and update your ipod and use your laptop for business.
Sorry it's the only way.

  1. Ensure that you have an active Internet connection as new versions of iTunes and iPod Software may need to be downloaded to your computer.
  2. Download and install the latest version of iTunes if you do not already have it installed.
  3. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
  4. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
  5. Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
  6. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
    • Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
    • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
    • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
  7. If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.
  8. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
    • Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).
    • Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).
  9. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
  10. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

Hanging of apple ipod


Please note that to use the iTunes sync and the Nano itself, you will need to meet the minimum specs for your PC. So if you don't meet that spec for your product, you will cause a critical failure on your PC. And if your computer is old or is lacking the requirments then you should:

1. Sync a small amount at a time.

2. Upgrade your computer to meet the minimum requirements, (and if you do meet the minimum know that only means that you can sync and it isn't saying you will definately sync)
You should meet at least the optimum spec requirments otherwise you will crash the computer or lock up the Nano.

3. If you haven't already install the Nano's software into the PC, then download all needed updates before syncing.

P.S. Please post one problem to your issue, not multiple with similar issues worded differently or worded wrong, or just mis-typed.

Ipod nano 8GB 3rd generation FROZEN!


hi,

Firstly, don't worry about your ipod, i had the exact same problem with mine and with 3 of my friends here in athens!

Just leave it frozen untill it drains out of battery,
then try plugging it on your pc and leave it plugged for a while,
after doing that try to open it.

NOTE: my ipod opened after this step and worked properly.

If the ipod still don't works you can do the same as my sister did.
Take the ipod to your sales man and get a software update or replace it (if you are still in guarantee period)

Hope i helped,
Looking forward to hearing from you for further assistance!

IPod nano black mp3 won't turn on


Try charging it using an A/C wall adapter. Sometimes the USB does not have enough power for a very dead ipod.

My Ipod Nano Won't Respond


The problem may be battery charge. Leave it plugged into the computer for 6 hours, and then try it. If this does not work, the best thing to do may be to call apple for further help.
