Will i lose all my synched ipod music if dad reconfigures comp??
Help I have all my ipod nano itunes music synched with Dad's Windows computer. His computer has recently 'died' and he wants to rebirth it. I am scared all the music will disappear off my ipod nano if i try to synch with his cleaned up computer. He can't get it started to copy my music files. All he can do is reconfigure it he says. All my pocket money for 2 years has gone on my itunes. Help!! What can we do. Rosie, 16

If you try to sync with Dad's PC via iTunes you will lose your music. However take a look at XPlay 3 from mediafour.com; that will allow you to recover music from your iPod onto a PC.
If you need to do this on a Mac try Senuti.

I never use the sync so don't understand the problem you have but I do copy the mp3panda songs I want to the nano from itunes. I highlight all the music I want and then drag it to my nano icon on itunes. I hope this works for you. Good Luck.
I formatted my ipod Nano (2GB - Model No: A1199) on windows Vista. When I
copy songs from computer it show from computer but not showing in ipod:
Now songs are not playing. I am missing my music. Help me........
Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, Restore
Remember these five basic suggestions if you have a problem with your iPod nano. If
one of the following doesn’t help, read on for solutions to specific problems.
â Reset your iPod nano. See “General Suggestions,” below.
â Retry with a different USB port if you cannot see iPod nano in iTunes.
â Restart your computer and make sure you have the latest software updates
â Reinstall iPod and iTunes software from the latest versions on the web.
â Restore your iPod nano. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page 50.
It should tell you in the instructions that you need to download iTunes for Windows since it sounds like you're not on a Mac. All the controls for transferring music and synching photos etc are in iTunes. When you attach the iPod, you're connecting it to allow the transfer of files as though it was a USB Flash Memory stick, but this allows you to store other files such as Word docs on the iPod -- it does not allow you to transfer music. A big part of the reason for this is the digital rights management that the music labels insist upon.
I know another way you could try formatting which may fix this problem. Restoreing just restores all the setting to your iPod yes it shoudl format as well but it may not due to an error or something.
To do try it another way follow these steps, first click on "Start" - "My Computer" look for you iPod when it's connect usually called "Removable Disk" once you've found it "Right-click" on it then click on "Format", once format is complete disconnect, then connect it again then run "Update" for your iPod and for iTunes, once you've done that have another attempt.
Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in some way. Further problems leave a comment and i will get back to you.
