Almost 2 years ago that i repeatedly update and download mp3's into my ipod nano 2g white color, and also i used this as a storage device the same as FLASH DRIVE and I saved files such as .doc, .pdf, .ppt, .xls, .exe, and ect.

I uninstalled the itunes and reinstalled again, still the same PC and ITUNES cannot detect my ipod. But my ipod is still good of playing mp3's, the problem is only the PC and Itunes cannot detect the ipod.

When you connect your iPod to your computer, does the iPod itself change to saying Connected or Do Not Disconnect? If not I would recommend putting the iPod into disc mode. After it is disc mode you will need to restore the iPod using iTunes. Below is a step by step on forcing an iPod into disc mode as well as restoring. Please feel free to comment any questions or concerns.



--------------------------------------------------

Putting ipod into disc mode http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1363 Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect".

After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
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.

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.

If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.

A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started.

When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).


Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).

During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.

Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.

After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

Okey ! i guess there are two reasons for this possibly:

1.the itunes u're using now is not compatible with ur ipod, u may need download a suitable edition for ur ipod from apple official website;
2.there may be some vices about connector plugs of ur ipod,replace it and have a try again.

In addition, if you wanna view DVD movies on ur ipod nano , check out Daniusoft DVD to IPod converter which can help you converter DVD (including protected by CSS) to ur ipod nano>>>

A1199 unlock code


Although the second generation iPod Nano (also known as 2G) uses a four-digit pass code that prevents unauthorized access to your iPod by locking the screen, you can also unlock the device by plugging it into your computer's USB 2.0 port.
When the 2G iPod Nano is connected to the computer it is synchronized, and automatically unlocks the screen according to the official Apple site.
In order to successfully unlock the Nano it must be plugged into the primary computer used for synchronizing content.

Click "Start," "All Programs" and "iTunes" on your PC's desktop, or click "iTunes" on the Macintosh's desktop dock.
Plug the iPod Nano's cable into the docking port on the iPod Nano.
Plug the other end into the USB port on the computer to open iTunes.

Click "Controls" at the top of the iTunes' menu, and select "Eject iPod."
The iPod Nano's screen will be unlocked once it is ejected from your computer.

IPod Nano, white, 4gb, I want to delete existing podcasts from the library in my iPod. Podcasts show up on the iPod but not on my PC. The podcast category shows up on the PC but the PC podcast library...


I've had a similar problem in the past. The files on your iPod don't show up on your PC because your daughter put them there via another computer (possibly a Mac), and/or software other than iTunes. Your PC just can't detect them.

I used free software called Floola (http://www.floola.com/home/download_win/), to manually go into the iPod directory and deleted the unwanted files. It's very easy to do. Hope this helps.

My I-pod nano 2G won't sync!!


download the latest version of itunes from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ (your music will be saved within the itunes music folder already). Once it has loaded okay close the itunes program. Turn your ipod on and plug it into your computer. This will automatically open up itunes. Reset your ipod within itunes under your ipod settings. Then update your ipod with your chosen library or playlist.

Hope this helps.

IPod Nano 4 GB -- what gen?


Hello,
If you have the Nano with the smaller screen measuring 1" x 1.25" and got it 3 years ago, you most likely have the 2nd generation. Apple doesn't really have cases on their site for the older nano. I have the same one and purchased my case at Target. They have a good selection of 3rd party (non-Apple branded) cases. You can also check an Apple store if you have one close by.
Hope this was helpful.
Have a great day
