Question about Apple iPod 4th Generation MP3 Player
I just plugged in my new ipod and accidently did not choose English on the device and now I can't change it back.
If you've accidentally chosen the wrong display language, there are a couple of steps you can try to reset the default language.
First, I would suggest attempting to reset the iPod. You can generally do this by first toggling the "Hold" button from the "On" to "Off" position, and then pressing (and holding) both the "Menu" and center "Select" button for six to eight seconds. According to information provided by Apple, you may need to repeat this step depending on how long you've had the iPod.
Second, you may wish to try updating your iPod's software using iTunes. This will require that your iPod be connected directly to your computer while the software is being updated.
Next, you'll want to go to disconnect your iPod from your computer once the software update is complete, and go to the main menu by pressing the "Menu" button. The main menu's title should display "iPod" no matter what language you initially chose.
The last step - actually choosing the new language - varies depending on what generation and type of iPod you own, so I'd suggest checking out this link through Apple's support website for specific instructions:
Hope this helps you out.
