4th Gen Nano Frozen

 Mnorthe12152 -
For the past 3 days, i've read/tried everything (short of disassembling), and this is where i'm stuck -

*Apple logo frozen on screen
*Can get into disk mode and iTunes recognizes ipod, but when I reboot, just get Apple logo and nothing else (and iTunes does not recognize unless in disk mode) -
*Have restored (when in disk mode) in iTunes
*Have run diagnostics mode
*Have 'dropped' nano
*Have updated Apple driver
*Have installed latest version of iTunes

Please help!

Follow this instructions:

1 - Simultaneously press the top button + home (central) button.
2 - Keep both buttons until the Apple appears.
3 - Then release only the top button but still hold the home button pressed.
4 - The iPod goes into recovery mode and then you can restore it via iTunes

Frappes ta tête contre une cruche. Si tu obtiens un son creux, n'en déduis pas que c'est forcément la cruche qui est vide!
Thanks very much for taking your time in responding - I did as suggested, but nothing happened beyond reverting from the Disk Mode screen back to the Apple logo screen - Windows & iTunes will only recognize the iPod in Disk Mode, even after following steps 1-4
What I did, was after it went to the Apple logo screen, I THEN plugged it into the laptop and iTunes recognized it, then it magically fixed... haha
