Question about Apple iPod nano
You will not have to restore the ipod, in fact you can take the music from your ipod and put it all on your new computer.
First you will want to download and install itunes onto the new computer. After the instal is complete open itunes and go to Edit. In edit click on Preferences; once that opens click on Devices; and make sure that (Disable automatic syncing for iphones and ipods) is selected. This will prevent itunes from wiping your ipod clean of music when it is connected.
Now click on your start button and open the control panel. Click on Folder Options and click on the VIEW tab. Look to make sure that SHOW HIDDEN FILES AND FOLDERS is selected. If it is not, select it.
After you've done that, connect your ipod to your new computer. After the ipod icon appears you should be looking at your summary page of the ipod. Make sure ENABLE DISC USE is selected and that the ipod is in MANUALLY MANAGE mode.
after that without ejecting your ipod close itunes. Create a new music folder on your desktop. Now open your start menu again and click on my computer. Here you will see your ipod. Double click on it to open it. Now you will want to drag the itunes music folder from your ipod into the new folder you created on your desktop. (this may take a while if you have allot of music)
After it is completed, open itunes again. If you music is not listed in the itunes library you will simply want to go to File in the top tool bar of itunes and select ADD FOLDER TO LIBRARY and go to your newly created folder through the browse option. This will update you itunes library with all the music now on your pc in this folder. Hope this was helpful. CHEERS :) If any of it is confusing hella hit me up
