IPod won't play my songs?

 larry -

My iPod turns on fine. My songs appear fine on it. But as soon as I click on play button, it starts acting weird. It does not play songs. When I try to forward the songs, it just resets itself.

I have tried everything possible but nothing seems to work. My iTunes does not detect my iPod. So, I cannot even reset it. And when I reset it manually, nothing happens. It just stays the same as before.

Please help!
System Configuration: Windows XP Internet Explorer 7.0

Hi there,
  • Try resetting it by pressing the center + menu buttons together until the Apple logo appears on the screen.
  • Charge it for 20 minutes, toggle the hold button, and then reset it till it works
  • Song files could be containing virus so try deleting it
  • Go to your nearest electronic store for help
  • Check the apple site for support or call them

I had the same problem and it worked when I pushed the center button and the menu button at the same time for several seconds until it shut down and then rebooted with the apple icon popping up. DIdn't know you could push two buttons at once. Should have read the manual I guess. Thanks to the poster who posted this solution though!
