Question about Apple iPod nano 3rd Generation

1 Answer

My husband bought an ipod at the swap meet. He was told it was an apple ipod nano 8 GB. It's not...it's something called an HB USB Flash disk, but it looks just like an ipod, it even has an apple that comes up. Anyway, the screen is locked. I have tried re-formatting, anything I can think of! HELP!

This can happen even on expensive MP3 players. It has happened on my Sony MP3 player a few times.

As suggested let the batteries run out and then fully charge it and see if that fixes it.

If it does not go to the ur players website and see if they have more recent firmware for it. Double check that you can connect it to the PC perfectly fine and install the new firmware. It is quite possible a new firmware will fix the problem.

dont forget to rate me...

good luck.....

Memory loss on ipod


The ipod nanos the smallest product in the Apple iPod line. The fourth generation Nano comes in two different capacities, each capable of holding thousands of songs.
    Capacities
  1. The fourth generation iPod Nano comes in 8 GB and 16 GB models. The 8 GB version can hold 2,000 songs, and the 16 GB version can hold 4,000 songs.
  2. Tips
  3. Song capacity estimates are based on music encoded in Apple's proprietary format at a standard, average bitrate. The higher the bitrate, the better the quality. Songs deviating from Apple's standard (for example, CD-quality music or high bitrate MP3s) will use more disk space.
  4. History
  5. Nano's predecessor, the iPod Mini, was released on January 6, 2004, and was available with a 4 GB hard drive. The Nano was first released on September 7, 2005, and was the first iPod to use flash memory. It was first available in 2 GB and 4 GB versions. The fourth generation Nano was released on September 9, 2008.
  6. Size
  7. The fourth generation iPod Nano is 3.6" tall and 1.5" wide.
  8. Video
  9. The third generation Nano, released on September 5, 2007, was the first Nano to feature video playback. Storing videos on Nano can dramatically reduce the amount of songs it can hold.

Empty Disk


"Root" is the root directory - definitely not something that you want to delete. Go to Apple's website and re-download the firmware, and hopefully it will re-add the missing folder.

Ipod nano 3rd gen


It's in disk mode and the computer thinks that it is only a storage device. You need to reset it to get it back to normal.

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.
