Got new computer all that is in my nano doesn't show on Itunes
I have a 2nd gen 4gb nano completely full music and audiobooks. But since I got a new computer and open the itunes screen nothing that is in my saved on my nano does not display itself unless the nano is connected as when I connected to my original computer(no longer have was sold). How can I save some of the books without losing them?
Re: Got new computer all that is in my nano doesn't show...
What you can do is set your nano to manual disk management and go in and look thru the folders and all your stuff will be there, just renamed to random four letter names, and you will have to look thru to find what ones u want and rename then properly again.

Hi there PatAccording to the user manual for the ipod nano 5th generation you can add audiobooks. These directions are directly from the manual In itunes, select ipod nano in the devices list and click on the music tab Then select Sync Music, and then do one of the following:(a) Select "Entire music library"(b) Select "Selected playlists, artists, and genres," and then select Audiobooks (below Playlists).Click Apply.The update begins automatically.Hope this helps.
To download songs to iPod nano:
m Simply connect iPod nano to your computer. If iPod nano is set to update
automatically, the download begins.
Important: The first time you connect iPod nano to a computer, a message asks if you
want to transfer songs automatically. If you accept, all songs, audiobooks, and other
items are deleted from iPod nano and replaced with the songs and other items from
that computer. If you don’t accept, you can still download songs to iPod nano manually
without deleting any of the songs already on iPod nano.
While music is being downloaded from your computer to iPod nano, the iTunes status
window shows progress, and the iPod nano icon in the Source list flashes red.
When the download is complete, a message in iTunes says “iPod update is complete.”
If you set iTunes to download music manually, you can reset it later to update iPod
nano automatically. For more information, see “Updating iPod nano Manually” on
To reset iTunes to update iPod nano automatically with all songs and playlists:
1 Open iTunes and select iPod nano in the Source list.
2 Click the Options button and click Music.
3 Select “Automatically update all songs and playlists.”
The download begins automatically.
if you need further assistance please let me know. Thanks, MIDWEst-tek
the only way to get the songs of to save then is to use a program to rip the songs from you ipod to your computer such as CopyTransSuite as for adding and deleting songs, whe the ipod mounts on itunes uncheck the automatically sync music button and you can ckick the music folder and delete by right clicking and delete if the songs are in someone elses library, if you sync your ipod to your computer the songs will be deleted. use caution... hope this helps
