Sounds like a hardware problem. Usually if the ipod won't restore after several attempts there is something wrong with the electronics inside. I would take it to an apple store and let them inspect it.

My nano won't restore.


When you hook your iPod up, go to my computer and see if it shows as a drive. If so, Right Click on the drive and click "Format" Once this is done, Put the ipod in disk mode and connect it to itunes.
Restore as before and see if you get results.

I suspect you may have been using a dock when it crashed, if so you may never get it back. Docks are very harsh on the ipod motherboards. especially the Nano gen 3 and the Ipod Video 5th gen.

If this helps, please leave a vote on fixya

Won't restore and scroll has frozen


Thank you for using Fixya, your Nano at this point may need to under go a reset.

To do that slide the Hold switch to HOLD and back again. Then press the
Menu and Center buttons at the same time for about 6 seconds,
until the Apple logo appears.

For more information, please refer to this Apple link. IF you have other questions please let me know.

My 1st generation iPod Nano keeps coming up with the error message 'Use iTunes to restore'. I plug it into itunes and it said it detects an ipod in recovery mode..You must restore this ipod before it can...


Hi there,
No, it's not knackered you'll be glad to hear.
  • First things first, make sure you have the latest version of iTunes8 installed.
  • Next, press and hold the Select and Menu buttons together until the apple symbol comes on. It will then show the message you keep getting to connect to iTunes.
  • So connect it to iTunes. This will then say it needs to restore it
  • Click the Restore button where you are given a number of choices. Choose whichever is the bottom one of the choices.
  • During the restore and update leave it connected and during the restart. If the message comes up again, still do not disconnect but click restore again.
  • If none of this works, disconnect then put the ipod into disk mode by pressing and holding Select and Play until it says 'Ok to Disconnect' Which is a weird way of Apple saying 'Please connect me now'! So connect it to the computer, do the restore and that should do it.
If none of that works let me know and we can take it from there.

All the best.

Take it into your nearest Apple Store or Best Buy. It's covered under warranty so it won't cost you. The hard drive needs to be tested on it.

If your iPod nano won’t turn on or respond
1) Make sure the Hold switch is off.

2) If that doesn’t work, connect iPod nano to your computer’s USB or FireWire port. Your
iPod nano battery might need to be recharged.

3) If that doesn’t work, your iPod nano might need to be reset.

a) Toggle the Hold switch on and off (set it to Hold, and then turn it off again).
b)Press and hold the Center and Menu buttons for at least 6 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

4) If that doesn’t work, you might need to restore iPod nano software.

Try putting the ipod in disk mode by pressing the center and play buttons after resetting it (by holding down the center and menu buttons). You will know it is in disk mode when it shows a check mark on the ipod screen. Then plug it into your vcomputer and format it using windows.

After you format the ipod, try disconnecting and reconnecting to the computer and restore and see if that fixes your problem.
