The Nano is 2 years old - I cant remember what generation, but its my 10 year old's. I need to know is there any chance to get it repaired - it just went dead one day - no warning - no nothing. There isnt an Apple store convenient, but I certainly can make a trip to one - if it might be fruitful. Please let me know your experiences. (she got a new one for her 10th birthday - but I was hoping to give this one to her little brother and not have to buy him one!

What happened to your dead 'pod?

I second the recommendation to try a reset. A reset can cure a lot of iPod ills.

one more suggestion;

i had the same thing happen to my nano. a reset didn't work either.


the help guide on apple's website said to download the newest version of itunes and see what happens, which i did, and afterwards plugged in my ipod. it miraculously came back to life. i thought there was no way that would solve it, but it did. the ipod was wiped and after a quick sync it was ready to go.

Charge it and then connect it to your PC and see if it works with iTunes. You can try to re-initialize the iPOD.

You can also ask for advice on the iPod Lounge.
