You can do this by restoring it back to factory settings, which I would always do when buying a used I-Pod. Connect it to your computer, and open up I-Tunes. Find the I-Pod on the list on the left and click on it. Another screen will appear on the right. Scroll down to the RESTORE button. Click on it. Follow the rest of the instructions.

Open I tunes, plug the i pod into the computer, when the i pod shows up on the left hand side of the screen, right click it and you should get an option to rename it

SOURCE: how do I change the device name on my ipod nano??

Hey jenipoo,

With most models, users may typically change the device name of their iPod by changing it through iTunes.

You would first need to start iTunes with your iPod connected to your computer. Once iTunes is up and running, you'll probably want to use your computer's mouse to highlight the device. After waiting a couple of seconds, you should be able to click once on the current device name to open "edit mode," which allows you type in the desired name. Simply hit the "Enter" key once you've typed in the new name, and you should be set.

Alternatively, you can right-click on the name of the device on Windows-based PC's to open a dialogue box with a "Rename" option. Simply left-click on the "Rename" option, and again you should be able to type the device name of your choosing.

Please keep in mind that this may not apply to every iPod model, so you may wish to refer to your owner's manual documentation for more information.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Hi dude,
Still not works? My suggestion is manage your classic i-pod with Bigasoft iPod Transfer. It works well without iTunes.

The handy solution costs only $24.95 and well worth it.

SOURCE: Hello.Why wont my ipod nano turn on?

thanks for using fixya to solve your problems, i think the battery is down and need to be charge before you cn power on your ipod again. connect the charger or adapter to the ipod and plug it to AC power supply, leave for a while or some minutes before you power it on.

NOTE: don't always allow your battery to run down before you charge it.

Compliments and best of luck

I pod nano looses songs and scrambles albums.


This may have something to do with how the ipod is reading the names of the songs.
Hook your ipod up to iTunes and when the summary screen comes up uncheck the "automatically sync music"
This will put it in Manage Music Manually mode.
click the music folder and inspect the song titles.
if a son has something in the name such a a number before the name title change the song name to remove the numeral. see if it comes back in order.
as for losing songs, the ipod will remove songs when you sync if it doesn;t find it in your playlist.
this may be whats going on.

Less Memory than my Ipod is Supposed to Have


Reformat your iPod (remember that you will lose everything on it) and recheck the memory. If it is still unusually low, this indicates a fault with it's flash memory.

You can reformat your iPod using iPod Updater. Once it's reformatted, open iTunes. Just name your iPod, and tell it to NOT register your iPod (if you did so previously).
