I have a silver ipod nano 8 GB.
once i got it( it was completely new),i transfered about 701 mb( all songs),i started listening to it.i listened for an hour ,and i decided to transfer a video.when i did that,the video folder in the ipod was empty,but the video vas in the music folder(only the sound).i kept listening,and when i got to the songs that begin with ,,C'' all songs got mixed up:there would be written:the who-my generation,but the sound was from Paramore Decode x_X.
I deleted those mixed up songs. i planed to transfer some completely new songs( i tranfered 10),5 were working&when i wanted to listen to the other 5 it would constantly say(on the ipod)-format failed.
next time i turned it,after 5 seconds of every song(except 4) it would say-format failed.i deleted every song ,except that 4.Tomorrow i added 3 more songs.when i listened,those 3 song said format failed.when i tried to delete them,my ipod restarted and it was written-DISK EMPTY!
i tried to add some songs but when i tried to transfer a file-an anouncement said-FILE OR DIRECTORY COULD NOT BE CREATED!!!
Then i decided to contact u.
pls contact me fot any information that would help u,fix this problem! xD...
grateful in advance
Well the first question i would ask is how you are transfering music and video to the ipod. The reason i ask is because it sounds like you are not using itunes. itunes is the only way to actually put content on any ipod. with all that said when using itunes connect the ipod witht he provided cable and push the restore button on the summary screen for the ipod which should appear in itunes when you plug in the ipod to the computer you are using. after it restores you can try adding music and a video and see what happens
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

To create an M3U playlist On your PC, create a new empty .txt document using word pad, type nothing but save the file as a .txt. go in to my computer -->> explore and find the file and rename the .txt document so it has an m3u file extension (example: my_list.m3u). Open the m3u file with wordpad, notepad, or a text editor. In the first line at top of the page type #EXTM3U. After the first line, start listing your music files, copy and paste the song names , (with extension ie .mp3). One music file name each line. Exit the text editor and save the m3u file once you are finished. Drag and drop the M3U playlist to the player's MUSIC folder, your done.
The ipod nanos the smallest product in the Apple iPod line. The fourth generation
Nano comes in two different capacities, each capable of holding
thousands of songs.
The fourth generation iPod Nano comes in 8 GB and 16 GB models. The 8
GB version can hold 2,000 songs, and the 16 GB version can hold 4,000
Song capacity estimates are based on music encoded in Apple's
proprietary format at a standard, average bitrate. The higher the
bitrate, the better the quality. Songs deviating from Apple's standard
(for example, CD-quality music or high bitrate MP3s) will use more disk
Nano's predecessor, the iPod Mini, was released on January 6, 2004, and
was available with a 4 GB hard drive. The Nano was first released on
September 7, 2005, and was the first iPod to use flash memory. It was
first available in 2 GB and 4 GB versions. The fourth generation Nano
was released on September 9, 2008.
The fourth generation iPod Nano is 3.6" tall and 1.5" wide.
The third generation Nano, released on September 5, 2007, was the first
Nano to feature video playback. Storing videos on Nano can dramatically
reduce the amount of songs it can hold.
okay plug the shuffle to a windows based computer, then use "Disk Management" to format it, once it is formatted, run the iTunes then perform an update for the shuffle. once completed try to load songs and this should work for you now..
Use iTunes 8 to sync or delete songs, photos, etc.
Just connect the iPod to computer, download iTunes 8 from the internet, open iTunes 8, and then double-click on the icon of the iPod Nano to Sync files to your Nano.
The manual for the iPod Nano can be found at www.apple.com/support
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.
