My son gave me an iPod Series 3 32GB iPod model A1318.
It has a problem - or more likely, I have a problem not being very bright about techy things and having no previous knowledge of Apple hardware.

The device was working fine for some months, suffering only from fairly poor battery life - but I can live with that. It was set up to receive Hotmail and I had some music on the thing.

I have been away for a while and obviously the battery went flat so I charged it up ....... but

All it now shows when I switch on is an
Apple symbol, followed fairly soon by a screen dislpay that obviously wants me to somehow "link" the device to ITunes.
(see pic)

I do have iTunes on the laptop but frankly I have little idea how to use it, although I must have done at some time in the past because the music titles displayed are "my" sort of music.

Can anyone help with advice how to "reset" the iPod?
Must be possible. The advice on the web is to hold down the on/off button and the selection button together until an Apple logo apprears.

Done that many times - but the device simply goes back to indicating a need to connect to itunes

Frustrated
