How Do I Download Songs Onto My iPod Nano? IPod Nanos are portable multimedia players that allow you to playback songs and other content (e.g. video) no matter where you go. They come in a variety of memory sizes such as 4GB or 16GB (gigabytes) and work with iTunes to upload songs. ITunes is the iPod default management program which allows you to upload songs to its library, create playlists and sync music on your iPod quickly and easily. This simple process will have you jamming to your favorite songs in no time.

Unfortunately iTunes doesn't let you transfer anything other than your iTunes store purchases from your iPod.
Totransfer all your iPod content, all your music, playlists, videos,podcasts and photos to your new iTunes library you will need todownload software like TouchCopy.
Here is how to use TouchCopy
Download and Install TouchCopy. Downloads are free and are available for both PC and Mac.
Start up TouchCopy by double-clicking the TouchCopy icon on your desktop
Connect your iPod or iPhone to your computer. TouchCopymay start iTunes - don't worry, TouchCopy has fixed it so that iTuneswill not sync music or video with your iPod while TouchCopy is running.These changes are restored when you quit TouchCopy.
Now select which songs you want to copy into iTunes, if you want toselect all your music, select "Music" from the list on the left andclick on "Copy to iTunes" button in the TouchCopy control bar. In a similar way, you can also use TouchCopy to copy your playlists, videos, podcasts, photos, contacts, calendars and notes.
Whenyou are satisfied that all your iPod content is safely in iTunes, useiTunes to re-sync your iPod which will enable you to add new content toit.
Computers dont detect ipods as storage devices. make sure you have itunes installed and then sync your ipod to itunes. and move all the mp3 music to itunes by going to File - Add Files. and then you can put that music on your ipod nano
You have to sync them at the same time in order for them to stay on there, or you can do it the easy way and go to the ipod's main menu and click on manage your files and after you do that, you will be able to click and drag everything you want onto there.
You cannot go into "My Computer" and open up the Nano drive and just drag and drop files to it. Itunes formats the files with different names as it puts them on the ipod. There are however, other pieces of software to use to sync the ipod with the music you have. A few of the more popular iTunes alternatives are Floola, WinAmp, gtkpod, Banshee, RhythmBox and Amarok.Good Luck. This is my first solution. Any thoughts?

Try cleaning the movo of all files and updating firmware at:
You did not specify the specific error code you ar getting but perhaps this will help, the MuVo has known problems with library structure and max amount of files:
Flash memory players such as Zen Nano Plus, Zen Nano, or other MuVo series may report a message about "insufficient space" even if the player has sufficient space available. This occurs when there are more than 500 files or more than 50 folders on the unit.
Please note that each folder counts as one file, and the structure of file or folder names also affect the number of files a player can store.
To further maximize a player's memory, avoid using long file names and file names with mixed lower and upper cases; create sub-folders on the player and move files from the root directory (i.e. not in a folder) to the sub-folders; limit the level of folders to 4th level including root (e.g. x:\rock\band\album\song.wma).
