Try a reset first

Reset To reset your iPod:

  • 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.
    Tip:
    • If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
    • If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

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.

Downloaded music onto ipod, but nothing now showing on ipod screen, no folders, no music, did i unplug ipod to quick, how do i get them back


You must be using iTunes to put Music on your iPod. If you are not, the files will not show up on it. If this isn't the problem then try restoring your iPod. Plug in your iPod, open iTunes, and click the iPod Nano icon, then click restore. This will take a few minutes.
Sorry that's all I got for you, if none of this works than I would say your problem is very unique.

Cant get music on Ipod


Apple, the maker of the Ipod, requires you to use "iTunes" software to upload, transfer, and buy songs for your iPod mini. The software installation cd should come with your iPod, if not, you can download it at www.apple.com then going to downloads.

Hope this helps, have a great day! ^_^

My ipod nano third generation is frozen


You should not plug the ipod to pc while it is playing because it is switches from the playing mode to sync and charging mode you can not play and use the ipod while it is connected with the software without ejecting it from itunes. Do a reset by pressing and holding the center and menu buttons at the same time until the screen goes back and apple logo pops up. This should reset your ipod and fix the problem.

Cannot put movie from i-tunes on 3rd geneation i-pod nano


I just had this issue- I bought a movie off iTunes, and could view it on the computer, but it wouldn't go on to my iPod. I looked around and found instructions to open iTunes and on the home page of your iTunes where it shows you how much space you have, you can restore original settings, etc., if you click on "manage iTunes manually" or "manage music and videos manually" and then click apply you will be able to move your movie on to your iPod. In your iTunes library you just have to drag and drop the movie onto the iPod icon that appears in the left menu when your iPod connects to iTunes. It took about 10 minutes for mine to fully upload onto my iPod- so make sure you wait to disconnect until it tells you to. I hope this helps! What I read is that when managing the music and videos manually instead of it doing it automatically, you can move the videos and music as you'd like.
