:( I turned it on and once it asked for me to choose a language, i tried scrolling with the click wheel but nothing happened. I hooked it up to the Mac, it restarted, i tried the click wheel, nothing happened.

I did a hard reset (menu + play) this time, nothing happened. In fact, this time it wasn't a click wheel issue, the suckers dead! I hooked it up to the Mac for sh*ts and giggles and nothing happened.


I did notice something when I fondled it for a few minutes :p When i drag my finger tips over it, it starts to make these creeks and cracks, like when you walk on some faulty wooden floor.

Sounds like a case of invoking the warranty and getting it repaired/replaced. Bring it back - along with sales receipt - to where you bought it, and ask for a replacement. Simple as that.
Good luck and cheers

Dead Ipod Nano

I haven`t even had my ipod nano for three weeks and it randomly turned itself off never to come back on.

I could understand if I had dropped it or wet it but it was sitting on my bed the entire time.

What a piece of crap!
