Sync Old iPod Shuffle & iPod Nano

Are you saying, that you want to know if you can use your old iTunes that you had for your shuffle, on your new ipod? If so, the answer is yes. Copy your itunes music on a pordable disk. When you plug your ipod into your computer, it will recogonize that it is a different ipod. A box will come up and ask you if you want to have a new library. Click yes and then you will have a new library. Put your disk(s) in and copy them over to your itunes.

I hope this helps, but I'm sorry if it doesn't. I didn't exactly get what you were saying. I haven't exactly tried this, but I think it will work. Please rate my solution.

My Computer and iTunes does not recognize my iPod

Try this: turn off your ipod, hold the home button, and plug it into itunes while still holding the home button until a picture of the itunes symbol appears with a cable under it. itunes should say "ipod found in restore mode". This will completely reset your ipod, hopefully fixing any bugs or problems in it. also, you will lose all data saved on the ipod that isn't also backed up by itunes. Music, pictures, and video can be re-synced.

Hold in play/pause, and then connect to PC

I don't completely understand the "Firweire" reference. The manual (and logic) does not indicate that a firewire connection would work. Plain old USB for this device.
