I've been the happy owner of an iPod nano 5th gen, 8Gb for a few years. Over the years, I've added and deleted many songs, lyrics, album art, etcetera, and I recently assumed that something was corrupted in the drive: when I would add new album artwork to a song, it would either not work or add the album art of one song to a lot of other totally unrelated songs.
This thread is excellent to start troubleshooting, but didn't really help on a iPod nano (diagnostics mode is limited on this model).
Permissions Repair (or actually "First Aid" as it is now called) didn't find anything.
So I backed up all the songs I had on the it to my MBP. I also checked that the files were not corrupted.
I would like to restore the device the best possible way, before I put the tracks back on it.
When I launched the (brand-new) El Capitan's Disk Utility, there was a new setting I hadn't seen in previous versions, called "scheme".
The options are:
- GUID Partition Map
- Master Boot Record
- Apple Partition Map
I'm not really sure which one to use for an iPod nano, and couldn't find anything online.
