Ok, I've always thought myself to be fairly savy on tech stuff... I can't get the screen to rotate for anything. I've read the manual, blah blah blah.. It stinks by the way... So is anyone else having the same issue or know something I'm missing??
Lots, Windows 7, None ya...

    Are you referring to this manual: http://manuals.info.apple.com/enUS/iPod_nano_6thgen_UserGuide.pdf

    Check page 13, use 2 fingers and rotate the screen. Works fine on mine.

    Place 2 fingers on the screen and twist until the desired orientation is reached.

    None that I know of. You may need to get it replaced.

    Check out the tutorial on multi-touch at the bottom of this page...
    http://www.apple.com/ipodnano/design.html

    Failing that, reset the iPod Nano...
    *How to reset an iPod nano (6th generation)*
    Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and Volume Down button simultaneously for at least eight seconds or until the Apple logo appears. You may need to repeat this step.

    If the above step did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep. Try resetting the iPod while it is connected to power.

    Or call Apple. It's so new, it is still under Apple Care, and they will guide you through it...

    You can also do a hard reset on the device. Make sure the nano is not hooked up to iTunes or to a power adapter. Hold both the sleep/wake and the volume down button ( "-" ) for six seconds until you see the Apple symbol and then release and let it restart. Perhaps this will fix it.

    Good luck and don't forget to let us know what works.
