Your library needs to be rebuilt to version 8.0 before ITunes will work. Once the database is rebuilt, your songs will reappear in Itunes for use.

Give Itunes the library that your files are in using the folder options. Itunes will rebuild the library off of those settings.

Backup your purchased songs asap.

Ipod nano 8GB waiting and frozen problem

Very, very silly move. Apple builds Mac's so why would they use windows formatting?? Search for and download a trial version of the program macdrive. This will allow you to look at drives as though they were on a mac and also format them. Plug in your iPod. Find the right drive letter for your iPod, right click on it, and select 'Format Mac Disk...' Then itunes should see your iPod and you can restore it.

Changed computers

I'm making an assumption that iTunes was working before on the other computer, and now that you have switched computers, the Nano is not being recognized by iTunes?

Try this, from Apple's website:
Summary Learn how to restore iPod, iPod classic, iPod mini, and iPod nano to factory settings.
If you need to restore an iPod shuffle, click here.
Background It is important to understand the difference between "update" and "restore". Update simply installs the software that controls iPod and does not affect the songs and files stored on iPod's disk. Restore erases the iPod's disk and restores iPod to its original factory condition.
Warning: because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library. If you use the Nike + iPod Sport Kit, see this document for more information.

How to restore iPod
  1. Ensure that you have an active Internet connection as new versions of iTunes and iPod Software may need to be downloaded to your computer.
  2. Download and install the latest version of iTunes if you do not already have it installed.
  3. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
  4. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
  5. Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
  6. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
    • Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
    • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
    • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
  7. If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.
