Hi
Have you added any data to the pod? If so it could be full of data you put there or damaged data from the transfer.
And agree if you did not add any music and ESP: the way you encode your video clips you could be full of data! if it's new and it only shows from 8GB's to 479MB is a huge drop :lol: and a format or full reset can fix the problem.
HTH.

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).

Deleting songs from Ipod Nano 8GB


When you connect the ipod nano to the computer, you can do one of two things: you can go to the ipod's main home page in itunes and go to the bottom where it will have four options listed. 1 of them should say manually manage files. Click on the check box next to it and it should ask you if you are sure and click yes. Then go into your music folder of your ipod and delete the songs you don't want on there. To add music, all you have to do is click and drag what you want onto the oped. The second way you could do it is to go into your library before connecting your nano to your computer and un-checking all of the boxes next to the music you do not want on your nano and then connect it to a computer and let it sync. The first way is easiest and less time consuming as you only have to do it once. Hope this helps!

Less Memory than my Ipod is Supposed to Have


You should start by restoring the iPod Nano and iPod touch using iTunes. Below is a step by step for both. This should resolve sync and capacity issues. If for some reason you have any further issues with these iPod's or this particular issue, please do let me know. I am eager to be of assistance :)

--------------------------------------------------- Last Modified: February 16, 2009 Article: HT1414 Old Article: 305744 Using the Restore function for your iPod touch is part of standard troubleshooting procedure. Restoring your device will erase all data from your iPod touch, including songs, videos, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All iPod touch settings are restored to their factory condition.
Whenever you restore your iPod touch, Apple highly recommends that you perform a sync prior to restoring in order to back up any changes since your last sync. If you have movie rentals on the device, see this document before restoring.
Use the following steps to restore your iPod touch:
Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes installed and running before attempting to update. Connect your iPod touch to your computer. Select your iPod touch when it appears in iTunes under Devices. Select the Summary tab. Select the Restore option. When prompted to back up your iPod touch's settings before restoring, select the Back Up option. If have just backed up the device, it is not necessary to create another.
Select the Restore option when iTunes prompts you (As long as you've backed up your device, you should not have to worry about restoring your iPod touch).
Once the restore process has completed the iPod touch restarts and displays the Apple logo while starting up

------------------------------------------------
How to restore iPod with click wheel (ARTICLE NUMBER HT1339)
Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.

After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.

Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software.

The 4 possible restore options are: Restore Option

1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod. Restore Option

2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available. Restore Option

3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available. Restore Option

4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.

If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.

A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started.

When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).


Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).

During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.

Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.

After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

8 GB Ipod Nano went dead and now won't charge


does it work on the charger? if not, then contact apple or your dealer for more assistance or repairs.

If it works on the charger, plays music and so on, your battery is probably dead and you need a new one.

Accessing MicroSD Card - Sansa c240


wlubbert,

The memory won't read 9GB. It should read 1GB of the built-in memory, and then 8GB or slightly less from the SD card. They are actually separate "drives". From this standpoint, it seems like there are 2 possibilities:

1) The player isn't compatible with that new, top of the line SD card. (Most likely the case.)

2) The card is defective and needs to be exchanged under warranty or your money refunded.

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!
