Hi, I'm very new to the world of Ipods (blush blush) and I am having trouble with my Ipod Nano that my dad gave to me as a gift about a year ago. My ipod used to work perfectly fine, but recently my ipod has been switching off every time I connect it to my Apple Laptop to update my playlists etc. The first time it happened all my songs got deleted off my Ipod and now every time I try to put all my data back onto my Ipod (using Itunes), my Ipod switches off and on constently. When it switches off it shows a blank page, on my ipod, with the apple logo. When I press the centre button I have to start at the very beginning where you are supposed to select a language (there will be absolutely nothing on the ipod). I tried to restore my ipod instead of resynching it, but half way through the procedure my Ipod switches off and I get a pop up from Itunes saying that an unknown error has occured (1408). Does anyone know what is wrong with my ipod? Is there anything I can try to fix the problem or should I send it in to an Apple store to be looked at? I will really appreciate any help anyone can give me.
