It’s nice that Apple came up with the 5 Rs Assistant. Jam’s iPod nano went berserk. I was able to restore it at first but when I unhooked it from the PC, the same message “Use iTunes to restore” would appear. I went to an iPod center to ask what could have been causing the iPod to act strangely. They said that it could be a hardware problem. So, I just read about articles in the internet on what to do if your iPod would seem as if it broke down.
I then found the solution. I downloaded the latest iTunes software which includes the Apple updater. I reformatted the iPod nano and made a restore and update. Apparentl, I have to download a 16.9MB software update for iPod nano. I was actually crossing my fingers until the download was over because I’m only using dial-up at home. I’m hoping to have my broadband connection setup in a few days though 😀 . After downloading, the restore was successful. I tried uploading a couple of songs to the iPod and disconnected it from the PC.
Finally, it worked! 😀
