Hey guys i bought an ipod nano from bargain crazy a few months ago, and i plugged it in to my computer to get some enw songs on and then it froze.

Ive tried the reset thing where you hold menu and play, but it didnt seem to work.

Any other ideas?

If not what can i do???? I'm well upset

I've managed to fix a number of my friends iPods that have frozen in the past.

Firstly, make sure it's not connected to your computer. Then slide the hold button back and forth about 10 times (basically toggle it on and off).

Then hold the Menu & Centre (middle) button together for about 10 seconds until the iPod resets itself. Always give it plenty of time to start-up after a reset - the apple logo will appear, then just wait for a minute until the menu appears. If this still doesn't work, try connecting it to a mains power supply and repeat the process.

If none of these work, try connecting it to your computer and see what happens and report back. I'd be surprised if it's dead for good as I've always managed to get iPods working in the past. Good luck! :thumbsup:

When mine froze, I had to let the battery run out because it wouldn't switch off, then charged it back up, it was fine after that.


have you tried, hitting it or throwing it out the window?
