    iPod Nano 2G Question! Technical help required before I chuck it at a wall!

    My friend has recently replaced her rather old iPod Nano 2G with a new MP3 player. The iPod Nano has rather a lot of problems and I offered to have a look at it for her to see if I could fix it........and it turns out I can't.

    It keeps freezing and occasionally won't play music and when it does, it doesn't like pausing or skipping tracks.

    I have restored it twice and reset it a number of times but it keeps having these problems and I can't figure out what is wrong with it, I am assuming a hardware fault?

    Does anyone here know what might be wrong with it or is it beyond repair?

    Thanks

    It's not mine, it's a friends. She has now got a new iPod Touch and I just offered to look at the Nano for her to see if it was a fixable fault but it appears to "knackered" as you say.

    Is it worth anything?

    Lol, I guess seeing as you can buy working ones on eBay for under £40, a faulty one isn't worth much!

    I might offer her something for it and continue to try and save it, if not I quite fancy taking it apart for some weird reason (can you take nano's apart?!)

    Nano's don't have hard drives.



    Then what does it have?
