Hi,

You can try to reset :

http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1382?viewlocale=en_US

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1320?viewlocale=en_US

If you still have the problem you can try restore :

Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library.

Retry your iPod with a different USB port on your computer, not a USB port on your keyboard or hub.

How to restore your iPod:

For Windows:

1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.

2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.

3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes. If the iPod's display doesn't show "Connected" or "Do not disconnect" you may need to put the iPod into disk mode to proceed.

4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software.

The 4 possible restore options are:

Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.

Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.

Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.

Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.

6. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started.

When this stage is completed, iTunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.

7. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.

Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.

8. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

For Mac:

1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.

2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.

3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes. If the iPod's display doesn't show "Connected" or "Do not disconnect" you may need to put the iPod into disk mode to proceed.

4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.

5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:

Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.

Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod, even though a newer version is available.

Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with latest iPod Software version on your computer.

Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with latest iPod Software version on your computer.

6. A message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator's name and password.

7. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.

8. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.

Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.

9. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

Or

Try to reinstall

To update and reinstall your iPod software, first download the latest version of iTunes.

http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

Next, open the new version of iTunes and connect your iPod to your computer.

Select your iPod in the source list and click "Check for Update" under the Summary tab. iTunes will check to see if your iPod needs to be updated and perform the update for you.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

My ipod nano #7l6528edvq5 is not recognize by my pc and the port usb is correct what can i do for changing my music on


The iPod Nano digital media player, like any electronic device, can freeze and quit working properly. When this happens, reset the device to restore functionality and unfreeze the device. Performing this reset process allows you to continue using your iPod Nano device without losing any of your digital media content.

Press and hold the "Sleep / Wake" button on your iPod Nano. Press and hold the "Volume Down" button while continuing to hold the "Sleep / Wake" button. Wait approximately eight seconds for the Apple logo to appear on your iPod Nano's display. You have now unfrozen and reset your iPod Nano.

How to unfreez an ipod


INSTRUCTIONAL STEPS

To reset iPod touch, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time until you see the Apple logo show up on the screen:

How to unfreeze or reset an iPod Classic 1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
2. Now press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, which may take about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

Notes:

  • If you are having problems resetting the iPod, go ahead and set it on a flat surface. Then make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also be sure that you are pressing the Menu button towards the outside of the click wheel, not near the center.
  • If the above mentioned steps do not work, then you can try connecting your iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect the iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
How to reset an iPod Nano (1st, 2nd, and 3rd Generation) This one is similar to how you would do it for an iPod Classic:
1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
2. Now press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, which may take about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
You can also reset an iPod Mini in the same way as the above steps.
How to reset or unfreeze an iPod Shuffle 1. First , eject your iPod shuffle from iTunes, if you have it connected.
2. Then remove the iPod shuffle from the USB dock.
3. Move the switch that is on the top of the iPod shuffle to the off position.

5rs_reset_shuffle2a.png Note: When iPod shuffle is off, the green stripe by the switch is not visible.
4. Wait 5 seconds.
5. Move the switch back to the on position so green stripe will be visible in either position.
And that's it! Hopefully, now that you know these steps, you don't have to keep taking out the battery to unfreeze your iPod! Any comments or questions, make sure to write below! Enjoy! Source: Apple Support

I cant turn my ipod off


Hi there dbj185,

If you go to the Apple website you can find the manuals for all their equipment. Here's the link for their ipod nanos:

http://support.apple.com/manuals/#ipodnano

On Pg6 of the 2nd Gen Nano manual there is a list it's functions. Second one down is how to turn it off which is 'Press and hold Play/Pause'.

All the best
