IPOD SAYS "PLEASE CONNECT POWER DEVICE" BUT IT IS PLUGGED IN
I just bought a new iPod Nano and purchased all the songs on iTunes. I created the playlists and everything. When I plug in the iPod to the USB port absolutly nothing happnes. The Ipod says "Battary low please connect to power device". I do believe my my USB port works because it seems to work just fine when my printer is hooked up to it. Is there a way to get the music onto my iPod without using the USB ports? or anything I can do to make the USB port work??

Tips & Warnings Click "Music Store" if you want to purchase a music file. Search for the song on the iTunes store and download it to the iTunes library.
Sounds like they did not use a iTunes to copy the songs to the iPod.
iPods/Phones/Pads, etc require iTunes to create a sort of file that tells the iPod where the music file is located at on the mp3 player.
So if they just plugged it in via usb and drag and dropped mp3 files over then there is no file to tell the iPod where they are.
So you'll need to drag those music files off of your iPod back onto a computer and then use iTunes to import the songs into iTunes and sync your iTunes library to your iPod.
