    HI Guys,

    Mate of mine has just reported to me that on his first generation iPod Nano the play/pause button when pressed is just forwarding through the tracks and not actually playing or pausing tracks.... anyone heard of this before or suggest a solution?

    Dunno. Maybe try restoring the firmware via iTunes, assuming it's not too difficult to sync back. :)

    if the firmware restoration is unsuccessful, take it to an Apple store. in my experience, they'll (1) fix it, (2) give you a new one free of charge, or (3) tell you you can't do anything about it and you have to live with it or buy a new one. in any case, you'll know what the next step is.

    OK thanks..... long way to an Apple store so fingers crossed the fireware restoration works.
