Hey i've recently bought a 2nd hand ipod nano and want to delete all the datd from it before i add anything i have no idea how to do this as there was no instructions with it. I'm not very technically minded so the simplest answer would be great.
Not sure if you have 1st or 2nd gen
These manuals suggest that when you connect to itunes, it automatically deletes all songs not in your library. Otherwise i don't see a format option unless the drive shows up in my computer and you can format it there (right click).
It basically suggests that you have to use one of the manual methods on the pod or computer to delete songs.

download itunes, it has a easy user interface for adding and deleting songs. once you download the software it will sync with your device. then you can select your device from the lefthand side and delete music from that menu. www.itunes.com
Hey. In your itunes window, you have the option to automatically sync the ipod once it is plugged in. If this is on, then your ipod will sync itselfto whatever computer you plug it into. This means that if you have uploaded a bunch of songs from your computer, and you plug it into another one with auto sync on, it will delete all your previous songs. In the future, make sure this option is turned off, and that you do it manually. Hope this helps!
the only way to get the songs of to save then is to use a program to rip the songs from you ipod to your computer such as CopyTransSuite as for adding and deleting songs, whe the ipod mounts on itunes uncheck the automatically sync music button and you can ckick the music folder and delete by right clicking and delete if the songs are in someone elses library, if you sync your ipod to your computer the songs will be deleted. use caution... hope this helps
When you connect the ipodnano to the computer, you can do one of two things: you can go to the ipod's main home page in itunes and go to the bottom where it will have four options listed. 1 of them should say manually manage files. Click on the check box next to it and it should ask you if you are sure and click yes. Then go into your music folder of your ipod and delete the songs you don't want on there. To add music, all you have to do is click and drag what you want onto the oped. The second way you could do it is to go into your library before connecting your nano to your computer and un-checking all of the boxes next to the music you do not want on your nano and then connect it to a computer and let it sync. The first way is easiest and less time consuming as you only have to do it once. Hope this helps!
I have had this problem recently myself and would like you to know that
it is possible to fix. The white screen error or otherwise known as
"white screen of death" is caused by the lcd color screen on the ipod
itself. That is why its functions still work but the screen does not.
Once you replace the color screen it will be as good as new.
Maybe the memory is full? that's all i can get from your description
