    hold the center button and either the menu or the play button down at the same time (i cant remember which one, so try both combinations), the ipod will reboot, and be unfrozed

    i have the same problem, i tried the solution that was posted here, but no results, its still the same. i have the screen on but nothing works, i think will have to wait till the battery is completely dry.

    I hope you all solved your Disk Mode - Ok to disconnect problem. The Apple

    their solution:
    1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off
    again.)
    2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears,
    about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

SOURCE: i got a ipod a1199

Perform a full restore of your iPod. Remember that the restore process deletes everything in your iPod-like your music, videos, photos...-. <br> 1. The first thing is to connect your iPod in recovery mode to the computer. Turn off you ipod. Before placing the iPod into recovery, you should verify that it is charged. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 8 seconds until the Apple logo appears. After the Apple logo appear, you can release the buttons. <br> 2. Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and display "Do not disconnect". <br>
3. Open itunes. Itunes will display a message of a device connected in recovery mode. It should ask you automatically to start the restore process. If not, select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows. At he right part, click on the Restore button. <br> 4. You will have 4 restore options, select restore option number 2. A progress bar will appear to indicate you the state of the restore process. When It finishes, iPod will be as new

I have a 8g ipod nano model number a1199 and i got it awhile back and i lost it. recently i found it and forgot the password. is there anyway i could reset the whole ipod... or whatelce could i do?


The latest iPod Nano includes a locking feature, which allow users to set a four-digit combination to keep intruders from using the device. However, if you find that you forget what code you set on your iPod, you will need an alternate way of unlocking your iPod Nano. Once the device has been successfully unlocked, you can continue listening to music on it.

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of the iPod Nano. Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on a Mac or PC computer. Open the iTunes application by clicking on the Dock icon on a Mac or using the Start menu on a PC. Click on the name of your iPod Nano under the "Devices" list in the iTunes window. Click on the "Sync" button to establish a connection between your iPod and the computer. Click on the eject symbol next to your iPod's name after the syncing process has finished. Unplug your iPod Nano. The device will be unlocked and you will be able to access all normal features again. Hope it helps.

Model iPod A1199 has a 4 digit unlock code and I do not know how to find the code to unlock my iPod


You have to first place the Ipod in Recovery Mode, then Itunes will walk you through the rest. It will wipe the hard drive though, but it will get around the pass code.

My ipod nano mini #A1199 has frozen?


Hold menu ( up on the the little circle pad ) and the center button for a couple of seconds until the screen goes blank, then press a button after it goes off to make it come back on. That SHOULD unfreeze it and work as a reset.

Hope this helps!
