Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

My iTunes does not recognize my iPod Nano 2GB (silver)

I accidentally disconnected my iPod Nano (2GB) from my Mac without "ejecting" the iPod first and now all of the data that was stored on the iPod has been erased. Now when I plug it into my Mac, the iPod icon appears on the desktop but I can no longer sync with iTunes. I can't find a way to do it manually either. I have reset the iPod but I don't know what to do from here.

Any suggestions?

ITunes does not recognize my iPod Nano 8GB Silver. It recognizes my iPod 2GB. Why is this happening? I have a Dell XPS and I am using Microsoft Word 2010.


Just reset the 8GB nano by holding the center and menu buttons at the same time for about 6 seconds. It usually works for me with my iPod classic 120GB.

My son has a nano ipod and he locked it with a commbination and forgot it how do i unlock it?


Try plugging it into the computer your son normally syncs it with. Then open iTunes.
After iTunes recognizes the nano, you can eject and disconnect the iPod from the computer. It should be unlocked.

If that does not work, then you'll have to restore the iPod (which will remove *all* music, etc. from the iPod).
You can do that like this:
plug it in to your computer
launch iTunes when iTunes recognizes your nano, Resync the iPod (so the data is saved on the computer) Then click on "Restore" (on the "Summary" tab).

Then follow the onscreen instructions.

You'll need to resync all your music etc. to get it back on the iPod.


Hope this helps!

Ipod nano 8GB 3rd generation FROZEN!


Try resetting the ipod while its connected to the computer by holding both the menu and center button at the same time for 6-10 seconds until you see an apple appear on the screen. You may need to repeat the reset. If this fails your looking at a hardware issue most likely. Good Luck.

Have you tried removing the battery for about a minute, then replacing it and trying to turn it on? Unfortunately, little things like this are great, but very susceptible to vibration.

Hope this helps, and please remember to rate my answer, good OR bad.

Good luck!
