Question about Apple iPod nano

Ipod nano not playing songs, and dying

I have had 4 of these ipods, all because they keep breaking. i keep trading broken ones in again. i don't know why. all the broken ipods exhibit the same "symptoms." they stop playing songs and videos, but you can still maneuver around the screens, using the buttons and wheel. none of the games are playable, and, if the ipod is reset (a difficult task with this kind), it dies. black screen, no responses, no revival. is it me, or a faulty product? what do i do? The screens work but no music plays

A couple possibilities:
The songs that you have loaded onto the IPod may have fixed-term or limited licenses - if you don't resync to your music svc every 30 days or let your subscription lapse, they become unplayable over time.

This would not explain the games, however. On every Windows-based computer, the iPod can play in 2 modes - msd or mtp mode. If you alternate between these two modes, certain file types become hidden to the player itself, and thus become unusable. I can tell you how to resolve this, but it takes a lot of time, effort, and space: write me back, and let me know if you want me to tell you more.

What type of computer do you have, and what type of OS are you using? Windows XP? Macintosh? Windows Vista?

My ipod nano keeps playing the same song over and over, even on shuffle.


The shuffle setting is essentially random, which does _not_ mean that you won't hear the same song again until all other songs play. You might even hear the same song twice in a row, I suppose.

Are you hearing the same group of songs, and your other songs _never_ play?

If you scroll manually to a song that you haven't heard, and start play from there, does it revert to that same group songs, or play on to others?

All else failing, have you tried to restore your iPod?

Have you tried changing the playback settings in your iTunes preferences? You should be able to adjust the setting to make it _less_ likely for songs to repeat. I don't know how that would transfer to the iPod..

Hope this message can be fix to your ipod nano.

Tip

Ho to transfer videos, movies, songs from one ipod to another and ipod to PC


Steve Jobs only allows to put music or videos, etc onto your iPod/iPhone from iTunes, and this is not fair, the best iPhone/iPod to Mac Transfer change the way how the game plays and easily help transfers videos music photo and many of other data from iphone,iphone 4, iphone 3GS ipod, iPod nano, iPod touch or iPod classic to your Mac with least time without any loss.

Any piece of your song and video count, don’t let them die and lost, just free download the ipod to Mac transfer or the iPhone to Mac transfer now to your Mac. Please connect your iPod or iPhone to your Mac, choose the files your want to transfer. All the process will finish instantly with a few mouse clicks.

Press and hold the center button while holding down the menu button. This will reboot your Ipod. Check your IPod cable to see if its shorted. If might have transferred a song and crash in the middle of the transfer.

I think you have your settings to repeat the same song over and over again.

To check and change it, go to the Main Menu, select Settings>Repeat. If that says "One" keep hitting the center button (the select button) until it says "Off".

Hope this helps! Good luck.

Music on iPod stops randomly and skips to next song


turn every program but itunes off. your firewall is interrupting your sync. close all programs or turn off your anti-virus and firewall so nothing can interrupt. keep me posted with results.
