Make sure you have you user's manual. If you don't have it, go to Apple website.

Make sure the songs you are trying to add are in the format suggested in the user's manual - warning: WMA files are trouble for reasons I don't feel like explaining anymore.

If they are, then make sure that you still have enough memory left in this player.

If you do have enough memory, follow Apple's 5 R's:
These are for Nano, but they apply to all iPods:
Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, Restore
Remember these five basic suggestions if you have a problem with your iPod nano. If
one of the following doesn’t help, read on for solutions to specific problems.
â Reset your iPod nano. See “General Suggestions,” below.
â Retry with a different USB port if you cannot see iPod nano in iTunes.
â Restart your computer and make sure you have the latest software updates
installed.
â Reinstall iPod and iTunes software from the latest versions on the web.
â Restore your iPod nano. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page whatever.

Ipod froze


A white screen on an iPod Touch is the sign of a generic error, meaning you won't get a specific error message. Usually when this happens the white screen won't change and the iPod is frozen on that screen. Apple Support outlines a specific series of steps to take to deal with this problem, from turning the iPod Touch off to completely reinstalling the operating system if necessary.

What the White Screen Means The white screen is a sign that a software error has occurred in the iPod Touch. Unless you received an error message first, it's usually something near the root level of the iPod's operating system that caused the iPod to cease functioning normally. Rather than shut off completely, it goes to this white screen to let you know there's been an error. Unfortunately you usually lose unsaved information when this occurs. b> Resetting b> Try turning the iPod Touch off, then on again. This is the simplest way to reset your iPod Touch. If it remains stuck on the white screen, force a reset by holding down the Sleep button (top right corner) for about 10 seconds. The screen will go dark, then the Apple logo will appear. If it turns off and doesn't turn on again, the battery may be too low. b> Restore b> If a manual reset doesn't work and the screen remains stuck on a white screen, you'll need to restore the iPod to reinstall its operating system. Plug your iPod, via its charger cable, into your computer. Open iTunes and click on your iPod, then the "Restore" button on the main screen. b> Problematic Apps b> If you consistently receive a white screen while using a particular app, the app may be faulty or installed incorrectly. Try re-syncing the app to your iPod Touch and see if that solves the problem. Otherwise, you may need to delete the app to avoid the white screen problem.

How do I clean iPod Wheel?


<p>Dirt and fingerprints are easily visible on a white iPod with a Click Wheel, but the wheel is a delicate piece of technology you should be careful when cleaning. It serves as a touch pad, which consists of electricity and mechanics that you do not want to hurt. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect your iPod and turn the lock, so you do not accidentally turn the power on during cleaning. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Dip a cotton swab or a ball in rubbing alcohol or isopropyl alcohol, 80 percent found in any pharmacy, and squeeze out the excess. You can also use a lint-free cloth. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Swab, ball or cloth around the Click Wheel until the dirt or fingerprints are gone. If this fails, consider using a small amount of glass cleaner on a clean swab instead. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Dry the click wheel with a dry towel. <br />

My ipod works, it just has a white screen, i tried holding the sleep/wake button menu, and restoring it and still have the same white screen...


Open Itunes on your computer. Unplug ipod if it's plugged in.
Turn Ipod off (with sleep/wake and home button).
Hold home button down and simultaneously plug in the Ipod again.
Keep holding it (home) until the screen is an apple with a usb underneath it (Itunes sign).
Then in Itunes choose restore your Ipod.

If it's jailbroken go through the Jailbreak process again.

White screen on nano ipod


I have had this problem recently myself and would like you to know that it is possible to fix. The white screen error or otherwise known as "white screen of death" is caused by the lcd color screen on the ipod itself. That is why its functions still work but the screen does not. Once you replace the color screen it will be as good as new.
