Last september, I got my ipod nano for my birthday, the 1st one didnt work, but we had it replaced. The new one worked perfectly, no glitches, no explosions; nothing. Until yesterday. I was listening 2 a song and suddenly the whole thing just stopped. It moved onto the next song and I heard a second of music and then it went back to the main menu. I tried listening to more music, but even though it said it was playing, the time still remained at 0:00. I've checked my headphones and the ipod can't have been physically damaged because there is a VERY hard case round it. Unfortionately, I have lost my instruction booklet, whihc really does not help things at all. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!

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.
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
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
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.
The fourth generation iPod Nano is 3.6" tall and 1.5" wide.
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.
How old is it? if it's under warranty apple may fix it. Simply, if you charge your iPod through you computer then the battery could be damaged. USB ports only put out 5 volts. If you have an AC charger that puts out 9.5 volts then consider charging it with that. Some AC adapters only put out 5 volts for the purpose matching the USB standard, but it's not good for the ipod.
