Restarting and Resetting iPod touch
If something isn’t working right, try restarting, force quitting an application, or resetting iPod touch.
Restart iPod touch: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPod touch. To turn iPod touch back on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake until the Apple logo appears.
If you can’t turn off iPod touch or if the problem continues, you may need to reset. A reset should be done only if turning iPod touch off and on doesn’t resolve the problem.
Force quit an application: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPod touch for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then press and hold the Home button until the application quits.
Reset iPod touch: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
Convert a video to work with iPod touch: Select the video in your iTunes library and choose Advanced > “Create iPod or iPhone Version.” Then add the converted video to iPod touch.
You can turn the “Shake to Shuffle” feature on or off in Settings > Music
Shake to shuffle: Shake iPod touch to turn shuffle on and immediately change songs. Shake anytime to change to another song.
