Laptop is not recognizing USB cord for my Ipod

I got a new Ipod nano for Christmas, when I plug the USB cord into my laptop, nothing happens. The computer doesnt recognize that there is anything connected. I have tried all three ports, and none of them work. I found this odd because the computer wont even recognize that something is connected to it. Any suggestions?

You can connect your iPod to laptop through a USB cable. If you mean you laptop can recognize your iPod, you can follow these steps to fix the problem.
1. Try another USB cord or USB cable.
2. Restrart your computer for a try.
3. Reset or restore your iPod for a try, this way can fix many general iPod problems.
4. Update your iTunes to the latest version. Plug in your iPod, then in iTunes in the top left corner click help> run diagnostics. On the box that comes up, check the last two things. Click next and it should identify your iPod.
5. You may try this iPod transfer, it's a nice iTunes alternative that can help you upload music and video to iPod, I always use it to sync my iPod when my iTunes can't recognize my iPod, it's easy to use and works pretty well

Well if you bought it off of ebay or some other internet site you might have bought a clone ipod that only syncs with windows media player, but if you bought it from a certified Apple reseller than I dont think I know. goodluck !

When i plug in my chromatic it wont connect


it could be a USB port problem or the cord is just bad. first check to see if it is the USB port. If it works they YAY! if not, check to see if you still have warranty on your laptop/PC. if you don't the hehe your fault... Next check to see if it is the cord. you can do this by plugging someone elses Ipod into a different PC/Laptop. if neitherof these are your problem the go to customer service at apple of bestbuy(Apple recommened)

Ipod not recognized by computer or itunes


I struggled with this issue for a while and finally found a post that helped me. Hold menu and the center buttons until the iPod turns off. Then, immediately hold the left and center buttons to pull up the iPod diagnostic menu. Scroll down to the option "Reset" and select it. My iPod was finally recognized by iTunes. Good luck :)
