Switching on problem with I pod

I was trying to transfer a song from my PC (windows XP), on to my IPod Nano and it was giving a message ' unable to find file in specific location,  when suddenly it flashed a green battery fig with message 'Charging' and then went off. Now I cant switch it on. In the unlit screen it is showing a message ' Do not disconnect' but I can not switch it on and play it. I have tried to attatch it to other USB Ports in the computer but I only get a message' USB device not recognised' My other USB devices work fine from the same port.

Re: Switching on problem with I pod

Restart your ipod (hold the middle button, menu button, and play button for about 10 seconds). That will restart your ipod, and should make it work.

If that doesn't work, follow the instructions on iTunes to restore your ipod to the original factory settings.

How to down load a song to my appleipod nano 2gb?

To download songs to iPod nano: m Simply connect iPod nano to your computer. If iPod nano is set to update automatically, the download begins. Important: The first time you connect iPod nano to a computer, a message asks if you want to transfer songs automatically. If you accept, all songs, audiobooks, and other items are deleted from iPod nano and replaced with the songs and other items from that computer. If you don’t accept, you can still download songs to iPod nano manually without deleting any of the songs already on iPod nano. While music is being downloaded from your computer to iPod nano, the iTunes status window shows progress, and the iPod nano icon in the Source list flashes red. When the download is complete, a message in iTunes says “iPod update is complete.” If you set iTunes to download music manually, you can reset it later to update iPod nano automatically. For more information, see “Updating iPod nano Manually” on page 22. To reset iTunes to update iPod nano automatically with all songs and playlists: 1 Open iTunes and select iPod nano in the Source list. 2 Click the Options button and click Music. 3 Select “Automatically update all songs and playlists.” The download begins automatically.
if you need further assistance please let me know. Thanks, MIDWEst-tek

Can i edit the notes i put on my i pod nano

You should always edit the note on your songs prior to transfering them to the I-pod. You may still be able to edit the notes while still on the nano through I-tunes.

Unable to load MP# files from memory stick on to iPod

You should go to and downlaod limewire and manually download each song and it'll help you have the music in your i-pod. Yoy can also open i-tunes and connect your i-pod home of your i-pod and check the box that says manually manage songs but that will erase the music you have in the i-pod but will allow you to put the mp3 files on the i-pod.

My I-Pod Nano accepted 101 songs as recordings but will not seem to show any other I load onto it. These show when I look at the I-Pod on the computer but I cannot see them to play on the nano.

you must use itunes to transfer music etc transfering mp3 direct to ipod will not work download itunes from here free to use and will collect your music for you on your computer and sort it out for your ipod... updates for your ipod are also handled by itunes

I pod


Unfortunately it's not quite that simple.

Delete all the music youve just put on there. Then download iTunes, add all your music to its library then plug your ipod in, it will then sync automatically.

Hope that helps.
