Re: folder with exclaimation
First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides
back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the
left, here's how you reset:
You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round
button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see
an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will
shut off, then back on.
If that doesn't work, try a restore:
How to restore iPod
Ensure that you
have an active Internet connection as new versions of iTunes and iPod
Software may need to be downloaded to your computer.
Download and install the latest version of iTunes if you do not already have it installed.
Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
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.
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.
If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.
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).
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.
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.

Plug in your iPod to your computer.
Go to "My Computer" Go to your iPod's drive (eg. F: drive - check this on your computer)
Make sure you can see all hidden folders (If you aren't sure go to Tools, Folder Options, View Tab, and check Show)
After that click iPod_Control
Click the folder called "Device"
And then change it from _locked, to _unlocked
Connect the iPod to the computer.
Open up iTunes.
On the left side bar of iTunes, click on the music icon underneath the icon of the mp3 player (if it doesn't show up, you might have iTunes ver. 7 installed, and you would need to upgrade to ver. 8 to resolve).
Left-click a song you want to delete and then right-click the song once - select "Delete"
Repeat procedure with all songs you want to delete.
You may run into trouble later if auto-sync has been set up for a particular folder...rather than go into this lengthy explanation now, just let me know if the songs that you have just deleted re-appear after you recconect the iPod to the computer.
Connect iPod to computer.
Open up iTunes.
Click on the icon on the left sidebar of iTunes that says "iPod Nano".
Click on the Music tab.
You will notice that at least one folder has been set to "Sync music" - the songs in these folders will be automatically loaded onto your iPod everytime you connect it to your computer. I would suggest separating the music folders that you use and the folders that your wife uses on your computer itself. Then, you can sync only the songs in your own personal folder.
Alternatively, you can disable the "Sync Music" option altogether by unchecking the box.
Whichever choice you make, you will now need to manually go in and delete the songs you don't want.
You can do this by clicking on the Music icon underneath the iPod Nano icon on the left sidebar of iTunes. Find a song you no longer want on your iPod, right-click the song, and select delete.
to unlock plug it into original computer...if thats not enough open itunes. If it is still asking for code and you can't remember it try this:(I got this from John on here and it worked for me)- with ipod still plugged in... Go to My computer- click on tools - folder options - then the VIEW tab - tick the box for 'show hidden files and folders' - click OK - now click on ipod (in my computer) a light file called Ipod control double click- then Device double click - then _locked file right click and delete - disconnect ipod from computer. this should have taken the code screen away and you're at main menu. you can reset your code.... but sometimes you need to re-boot your ipod. You can do that by flicking the hold switch over and back...then holding in the middle button and menu together until the Apple logo appears and release. NONE OF THESE ACTIONS ERASE YOUR STORED INFO.
When you plug the iPod into the computer, a window may or may not pop up, depending on what you told Windows to do with the player the first time you connected it. If the window does not pop up automatically, double-click My Computer, double-click the icon of the iPod, and you should see a folder that says Music. If this folder is missing, that may explain your symptoms. Right click a blank area of the Nano window, and select New --> Folder --> and create a folder named "Music". Try syncing again, and see if it works.
Enable hidden folders.
In Windows Explorer,go to "Tools", "Folder Options". Then click on the
tab called "View", and under "Hidden Files and Folders", click "Show
Hidden Files and Folders".
Navigate ("My Computer" to double-click on the icon of your
attached iPod) to the hidden folder named "iPod_Control", and once
there click on the folder "Device". Once there, delete the file named
Eject your iPod. Then, restart your iPod. You can do this by holding down the center and menu button for at least 6 seconds.
Once your iPod has rebooted, check and make sure that it worked.
Simply go into "Settings", "Volume Limit". If it asks for a PIN, you
did it WRONG. Retry the above procedure.
You need to attach it to your computer to unlock it. Your local computer store might sell Ipod USB cables.
Connect the iPod and go to 'my computer'; -open the iPod by right clicking on the iPod icon; -on the toolbar menu click on 'Tools' -select folder options>view>& check the box that says "show hidden files & folders" -then click 'ok'
You will see a ghost folder called 'iPod control'. Open this folder to access the other folders & files contained within it. Delete the file called "Itunes_lock"
