    My iPod is beeping, but I have never set an alarms.
    I just plug in my Black 4gb Nano into my computer and it's beeping. I am using the stock USB cable. I searched the forums and found not much about this.

    I just decided to reset my iPod, and that stopped the beeping.
    It also had a weird screen icon, like the charging icon, lightning bolt+battery symbols, but they were skewed from their normal position.

    What does it mean?
    Has this happened to anybody else?
    Did I miss something in the manual?

    Whenever I plug my 3G into my modded mini dock it beeps once at me, but it's no problem. Was yours repeatedly beeping?

    Was it the broken HD icon? I had the beeping and weird icon display on my 1G ipod a few years ago. Turned out the HD went bad. apple replaced it and it still runs to this day.

    I occasionally have weirdness with my various ipods that resets or reformats help. Could just be standard operating weirdness, or you might want to verify the drive/flash with diskwarrior or disk utility?

    i have had my iPod beep and there was something fatally wrong with it. The battery didn't last and would shut off with the batter meter halfway full. When i tried to turn it back on, it beeped. That's all i can say, but if anything seems wrong take it to an Apple store. I got a free replacement :)

    Call Apple and tell them what's going on. They'll probably replace it...

    Thanks.

    The icon was the charging lightning bolt and battery icon, shifted to the far left (the Nano's right). The unit kept beeping until I reset it.

    I am past the 90 day warranty on the iPod. I have not found any thread of complaint like mine- ever, so I bet it was a one time glitch.

    Did the icon change from color to back and white?...this happen to me and i had to reinstall the firm...

    From time to time my nano does this and stays in disk mode....i just leave it alone and it wakes itself up.


    Bless
