    if your Ipod is off when you charge it on the computer it will cause it to freeze and they work almost like computers, if theres to much stuff on it that will cause it to freeze.

First thing to try is a 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.

You just need to reset it, hold down the middle button and the "Menu" button for about 7-10 seconds, or until you see the Apple logo.
Hope this helps.

My nano won't restore.


Take it into your nearest Apple Store or Best Buy. It's covered under warranty so it won't cost you. The hard drive needs to be tested on it.

Ipod nano 8GB 3rd generation FROZEN!


You need to reset your ipod. Flip the hold switch on then off, then press select button and menu button at same time. Hold for 10 seconds or so. Ipod should shut off and reboot to apple screen. If this doesn't work first time try again. This should solve any stuck screen problems. Mine was stuck on pioneer screen and this operation fixed it.

Nano keeps freezing


Slide the hold button on and then off. Press and hold the center of the click wheel and the menu button at the same time until it resets. It will take about 30 seconds to reboot and it should work. If it doesn't try returning it (if possible). 2nd generation nanos seem to have a problem where they freeze after a sync and need reset like this.
