I found the solution to this problem:

To get your iPod Nano 3rd Generation (4GB video) to be recognized by your computer, you will need to manually get it into "Disk Mode" here's how:

  1. Verify that it has a full charge, if not, you need to either charge the iPod before continuing or connect it to a high-powered USB port, or simply connect it to the Power Adapter that plugs into an electrical outlet. (just not connected to your computer)
  2. Toggle the Hold switch on and off once. (Set it to Hold, and then turn it off again. Just slide back and forth.)
  3. Press and hold the Menu and Select (center) buttons at the same time for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
  4. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select (center) buttons and immediately press and hold the Select (center) and the Play/Pause buttons until the ‘Disk Mode’ screen appears.
  5. Disconnect your iPod from the power adapter and connect it to your computer;
  6. Now the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" and should be recognized by your computer.
I hope this helps you; I had a hard time finding a solution and thought I'd share the wealth once my stress was relieved.

My ipod nano 4gb blue doesn't hold a charge. It's


If you left it sitting in the box "for a few years"...then that's why.
The battery has to be used to stimulate the "memory" of the battery. If it was charged once and never used again, then of course it is going to have a battery issue.

    The lock icon means that your "hold" switch is on (on the top of the ipod). Slide it to the left so that you see no orange.
