How can I fix my iPod Nano G3

i have a 3rd generation ipod nano and when i plug it into my computer, it needs to be reset when it's plugged in. But this time after i reseted it my ipod ended up needing to be restored. So i did. then a message came up saying that it had some files that are being used by another application.

what does this mean and how can i fix it?

by reset i mean turning the 'hold' button on and off and then pressing the center button and menu button for 6 sec.


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You might have a logic board issue. Also check to see if you have the disk use button activated on your iPod connection screen. It allows your computer to store files on your iPod.

Must be running windows... some files may have been accessed by a virus scanner and never finished unloging. Maybe a reset to the computer would help.

I would agree with the virus killer answer. Try again with the virus killer turned off. It is scanning the ipod and blocking files that access the computer.
