Updating 2nd gen nano error
Then press and hold the center button and the top menu button at the same time for 6 seconds. Just remember to not only eject ipod from itunes but stop usb. I'm not sure if this worked for the person who had orginally requested help, but there were no posts after the suggestion, leaving me to assume that it did. My fix was as follows ( My Computer is a PC running XP Pro sp3) * removed all itunes, ipod software. * rebooted PC, downloaded the reset software from the apple website. It appeared under USB Mass Storage Device (Apple i Pod USB Device) .
To reset move the hold button ( on top of the ipod) once to hold then back to original position. got the usual 'will not connect, can't reset to factory settings etc. * checked that it was being picked up by checking the safeley remove hardware icon.
