1. Run "c:\WINDOWS\system32\devmgmt.msc" (this is the Device Manager),
this will need to be used later, but you'll need it quickly when you do.
2. Start i Tunes
3. Connect i Pod
4. Go to your i Pod Settings and select "Enable disk use"
5. A dialog box will pop up reminding you that you'll need to manually eject. Hit OK
6. Hit Apply to save changes to the i Pod
7. Quickly switch to Device Manager window and right-click on any item there and select "Scan for hardware changes"
8. Switch back to i Tunes, where you should have a nice, working i Pod!
I would go ahead and do a system restore - this is a separate method from the resetting all settings. The restore will delete all songs and hoepfully replace any key system files that may have been lost, just in case too many were loaded onto player initially.
What seems to have happened is that either iTunes or the iPod folder has become corrupt. To solve this, download the very latest version of iTunes, install it, connect your iPod. If it wants to update the software on your iPod do this. Then on the main ipod page on iTunes click the button that says Restore. Choose the bottom most option if given any then go ahead and restore. You should now be able to sync as normal.
Try to do a full restore in disk mode.
1. Put your iPod into disk mode - Press top and center buttons simultaneously until you see the Apple symbol come up. As soon as you see the Apple symbol press the center and bottom (play) buttons simulataneously until you see a check mark. After this try to restore in iTunes. We recommend manually managing music versus syncing. But that is a personal choice. If you sync then going to another computer will wipe your music.
2. If 1 doesn't work try removing all USB devices from your computer and reboot. Then restore again either normally or disk mode.
3. Let us know, if you need further assistance.
This is the advice I tell everyone.. Don't use the iTunes library! There are times when you do need to use it, but 98% of everything you need to do can be done right on the iPod.
When you plug-in your iPod, you should see an icon for it appear in the left window pane. You can actually edit the song info, sort, categorize, or whatever right there.
The only thing you can't do is get iTunes to automatically download the artwork for you. But, to be honest, even when I do use the library to get my artwork, the artwork never "sticks" when I move it to the iPod, and I end up manually adding it every time.
I've had an iPod in some form for at least three years now. I've never had a problem editing directly on the iPod itself, and I don't miss the library one bit.
"You can easily copy images from your computer to the iPod nano using photo sync in iTunes.
Please note that you cannot import photos into iPod nano directly from a digital camera or media reader.
If you connect an Apple iPod Camera Connector or Belkin Media Reader for iPod w/Dock Connector to iPod nano, you'll get a message on your iPod screen that says, ""The currently attached accessory is not supported by this iPod.""
If you connect a Belkin Digital Camera Link for iPod w/ Dock Connector to iPod nano, you'll see a ""Do not disconnect"" message briefly, then the main iPod menu appears.
For information on other iPod accessories that don't work with iPod nano, Some accessories that work with other iPod models won't work with iPod nano. Here are some items to note and the affected accessories:
iPod nano cannot import photos from an accessory (use iTunes to copy photos to iPod nano). It will not work with third-party card readers or with the Apple Camera Connector. If you connect such a device, you'll see an error message that displays for about a minute and reads, ?The currently attached accessory is not supported by this iPod.?
Voice Recorders (Microphones)
Like iPod mini, iPod nano does not work with third-party voice recorders.
Apple iPod Remote
Because iPod nano does not have a remote port, it won't work with any accessory that requires it, such as Apple iPod Remote.
Headphones Port Location
The headphones port on iPod nano is located on the bottom, therefore, it won't work with any third-party accessory that requires that this port be located on the top.
No Video Out
iPod nano does not support video out through the dock connector or the headphone port. iPod nano is not compatible with the Apple iPod AV Cable designed for iPod with color display (and iPod photo).
If you need to use any of the above devices, you'll need to use an iPod model that supports the accessory.
