IPod Nano 8GB, 4thGen - Video Problems

About 4 days ago I put a movie onto my iPod and it worked fine - there was no problems with it, sound was working, video was working, all good!
And then yesterday after Sync'ing the iPod to the computer, the video vanished off the iPod. iTunes keeps telling me it's on there and the section where it shows you how much space is used/left on the iPod also recognizes the movie to be on there.
But when you disconnect the iPod from the computer and go into the Video Playlist it says the playlist is empty.

Everything else is accounted for BUT the video. It worked totally fine 4 days ago - how on earth did adding two songs yesterday effect it?

So it shows up on iTunes? Trying deleting it off of your iPod and then copy it back onto it. If you can't delete it just try to copy it over again.
iTunes might have changed what type of video it is, they might have made it a music video or a tv show and they are moved to different folders

Trying to download a movie from itunes to my ipod


It would be easier to diagnose the issue if you specified which generation your iPod Nano is. Here are potential solutions to your problem.

  1. Your iPods generation does not support video.
  2. The format of the video you are trying to put on your iPod is not meant to be played on an iPod. iPods only support .mov and .m4v formats. There are various ways to convert your video to iPod format such as using QuickTime.
  3. There is not enough space on your iPod to hold the movie. Movie files are quite large and an 8GB iPod may not be able to hold the file due to lack of disk space.
Hopefully one of these solutions was the correct diagnosis. Good luck!

My ipod nano 8gb will not let me sync movies


That's because the older iPod nanos did not play video content. you will either need to get a newer nano or not view videos on your portable player.

Cannot put movie from i-tunes on 3rd geneation i-pod nano


I just had this issue- I bought a movie off iTunes, and could view it on the computer, but it wouldn't go on to my iPod. I looked around and found instructions to open iTunes and on the home page of your iTunes where it shows you how much space you have, you can restore original settings, etc., if you click on "manage iTunes manually" or "manage music and videos manually" and then click apply you will be able to move your movie on to your iPod. In your iTunes library you just have to drag and drop the movie onto the iPod icon that appears in the left menu when your iPod connects to iTunes. It took about 10 minutes for mine to fully upload onto my iPod- so make sure you wait to disconnect until it tells you to. I hope this helps! What I read is that when managing the music and videos manually instead of it doing it automatically, you can move the videos and music as you'd like.
