Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

Computer wont recognize ipod

I bought an ipod (nano) a few years ago and it worked perfectly on my comp. Lost it after a few months and I haven't boughten another one until yesterday.

To keep it short, when I first turn on my computer before the login screen comes up, the ipod shows that its connected. As soon as the login screen comes up, though, my computer stops recognizing the ipod. I tried reinstalling itunes, but as soon as the installation is about to complete, the progress bar stops until I eventually cancel it.

So to replace itunes I downloaded songbird, which seems like it would work fine if the computer would recognize my ipod.

I've tried everything.. it seems like the only option left would to just do a system recovery :| help please

    Forgot to add: I have tried putting it in disc mode (using the select/play buttons during reset and many other methods) but nothing happened.

You will need to get a new LCD Panel for it. If you feel comfortable fixing it yourself you should be able to by the parts from ifixit.com

Do you have itunes program installed on your computer?
Are you sure those usb cables are the right one's for your ipod nano?
Only certain types will fit the nano's, get one that say for ipod nano.

Ipod not recognized by computer or itunes


I struggled with this issue for a while and finally found a post that helped me. Hold menu and the center buttons until the iPod turns off. Then, immediately hold the left and center buttons to pull up the iPod diagnostic menu. Scroll down to the option "Reset" and select it. My iPod was finally recognized by iTunes. Good luck :)
