3rd gen ipod nano not showing up in itunes

A friend of mine gave me his old ipod nano. He wiped it clean,and got rid of all of his settings and everything, but it won't register on my computer. When I plug it up, it charges, but nothing else. Doesn't bring up itunes or anything. I've tried using apple support,but nothing seems to work. Any help??

I tried different computers and cords... I ended up opening iTunes without the iPod and going under Help/Run Diagnostics. I selected to run diagnostics on just the iPod, an error message came up and then it worked. I'm not sure HOW it worked, but it did.

My iPod doesn't show up on my computer!


try to log out of itunes, and set up your own account, log in each time you connect your ipod, your ipod has it's own serial number, and your computer tries to open up ipod 1 even when ipod 2 is being used.

Ipod syncing problem


A few things to try.....first have you tried to do a RESTORE through iTunes? Realize that all data will be wiped off of the iPod when doing that but it may resolve your issue. You may also want to try and format the drive first using Windows (using Quick Format) and then a RESTORE through iTunes. That actually works. If none of these resolve the issue, then it could be a corrupt hard drive.

If that does not work, then please consider the FREE Diagnostic Testing that we offer through our website. It will cost you virtually nothing to have us diagnose your issue.

If your iPod is not showing up then it is under unknown devices or there is a defect in the software of your iPod. Go to an Apple store and they will fix it for free under the warranty or give you a new one.

Clearing previos owners name off ipod nano 3rd gen.


Once you plug your ipod into the computer and it shows up in itunes, just click on the name of the ipod (on the left side of the screen), then click on it again about a second later and the text will highlight allowing you to rename the ipod.

Also if you ever restore the ipod through itunes you can set the name of the ipod when it finishes restoring too.
