Question about Apple iPod nano

Ipod nano plugged in but only showing up as USB storage device

Got a nano 4th gen 8gb for Xmas. Never had one before. Plugged it into my laptop expecting to see the welcome screen as advertised. The ipod's only being recognised as if it were a memory stick (???) Ant advice welcomed. Do I really have to use i-tunes as I often use different computers?

Yes you have to Itunes srry :(. But there is a way that you can plug the ipod into different computers just put the ipod in manual mode and that should work.

Try this to reset the iPod nano:
Hold down the Menu button on the clickwheel and the center button at the same time. Hold these
together for 6-10 seconds. This should restart the iPod nano.

For more information, check out this troubleshooting page:

If that doesn't work, you might need to restore the firmware on your iPod. There are instructions here:

I can't figure out how to install my 16GB Ipod 4th Generation mp4


About your recent purchase of
16GB 4th Gen Slim MP3 MP4 Media Player with FM radio

You have been sold a fake sized player. it is hacked to show 16GB actual size may be around 1GB to 8GB. test your player with "H2TESTW 1.4" you will find it the first hit on www.google.com let other people know and open a dispute on paypal, you have been sold a fake item. Do not return the item for refund as sellers address is very likely wrong, useless to wait for a replacement player because they all are hacked. Get a partial refund. I paid 35usd, got 20usd refunded just now.

About your problem.
The player doesn't require anything works with vista and xp /etc just by plugging it into your computer and then turn it on, it will show up on your my computer as a removeable disk.

Apple Ipod Nano 1st Gen


first of all
what operating system are you useing?
is this the first time its been pluged in?
I know that you need your service packs 1 and 2
you need to go to your device manager and uninstall it but dont unplug or reboot at this point. go to add hardware and install it there you might have to tell it it's a mass storage device.
it might be formated wrong.

Ipod nano 3rd gen


It's in disk mode and the computer thinks that it is only a storage device. You need to reset it to get it back to normal.

You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.
