Question about Apple iPod nano
Device Firmware Update, hence it’s a mode where the iPod Touch device will be made to force restore into whatever versions it’s given with.
If you're not trying to 'restore' it, take it out of this mode
[If you are, you should be installing firmware]
Here are instructions that are Windows & MAC compatible:
[remember this is HOW to get to DFU mode
Before you begin, turn on your iPod Touch (make sure it won’t auto lock, to prevent mistakes), and connect it to iTunes. Once iTunes shows your device, perform the following steps:
Step 1: Hold down the “Home” button
Step 2: Hold down the “Standby” button
Step 3: When it says “slide to turn off”, ignore it. It should restart with a blank screen. Look at iTunes, and your device should be removed. Now lift the Standby button, while still holding onto the Home button.
Step 4: Keep holding the Home button until the iPod reconnects on iTunes. When the device shows up in iTunes, that’s when you’ll need to lift up your button. If you wait any longer, it will go into Recovery Mode, and that’s not what you want. Your iPod should be blank.
Step 5: Now iTunes will tell you that the iPod Touch is in Recover Mode.
If you didn't know exactly how you got where you are, or you want to change the mode, use the directions to guide you.
If that doesn't solve it, post back with more details
