Try restarting the iPod and connect it again. If it doesn't recognize it try it on another PC, if it still isn't detected it is the iPod. Buying a Mac wouldn't help nor hurt the situation, it would just be an expenditure.

Move Itunes songs from my Ipod to a new computer

Everytime you install itunes for your iPod it sync'c for ones with your iPod. And on next time if you try to put it into another dock on a different computer the software asks for "Erasing the Data inorder to sync your iPod within that system",and its a common feature can't be changed!!!
The only thing to avoid this happening is try to back-up the iTunes library which is saved in My Documents-->My Music-->iTunes-->iTunes Library(WINDOWS system). And after a fresh installation of another iTunes,paste your back-up file to the new saved area in My Documents-->My Music-->iTunes itself :ask for replace , to replace all.Then from that it uses your previous iTunes data's itself.
Hope this Helped!

Error-69 with iTunes

Summary When you try to sync files to any iPod in iTunes on a Mac or Windows computer, you might see the following -69 error message:
"Attempting to copy to the disk failed. An unknown error occurred (-69)" Products Affected iTunes, iPod
This error occurs when iTunes tries to send files to your iPod, but a file (or files) is unusable (something is wrong with it).
To figure out which file (or files) is causing the error, update to the latest version of iTunes and then do this:
  1. Control-click (Mac) or right-click (Windows) on your iPod icon in the iTunes Source pane, then choose Sync Songs from the shortcut menu.
  2. Watch the display at the top of the iTunes window while your iPod is being updated. The name of the problematic file should appear in the display right before the error appears. Then remove the bad file from the list of songs to be synced to your iPod.
  3. Select the iPod in the iTunes Source pane.
  4. Click the Settings tab.
  5. Select the "Only sync checked items" checkbox (please note that this checkbox is only available for an iPod configured to update automatically).
  6. Select the appropriate item under Library in the sidebar and find the bad file in the list. (For example, if the file in question was a song you would select Music in the iTunes Source pane. If it were a video you would select Movies or TV Shows in the sidebar.)
  7. Deselect the checkbox next to the file name.
  8. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to update your iPod. If you have multiple problematic files in your iTunes library, you may need to repeat the other steps to remove them too.
To prevent future issues, you should delete the unusable files from your iTunes library, then restore them from a backup or reimport them from a CD.
If you're not able to isolate to any single file or if another iPod works with the same songs, then disconnect any other devices connected to USB or FireWire and try again. If the issue continues, then then try resetting your iPod. If the issue continues, then restore your iPod.

Itunes with vista

The current versions of ITunes will work with Vista.  Make sure all of your ITunes software is updated.

Itunes with vista

From what I understand, iTunes is not recognizing the iPod, because Windows does not recognize it. Choose to install the driver, set it to search for a driver in "C:\Windows". It should find a USB Mass Storage Driver, an iPod Driver, and a USBusEnumerator. Choose the iPod Driver, and if that doesnt work, try the USB Mass Storage Driver, and then the USBusEnumerator. If Vista gives you a memory error, reboot your computer and try the iPod Driver again.

Itunes with vista

Do you have SP2? That should fix your drivers bit, but before I can advise you, I need to know If the Nano is not recognized by iTunes, or will iTunes not run at all?

Theres a few things you can try:

3. can you access it while logged into an account? Out of an account?
If none of these work, download the Itunes vista patch fix here
iTunes and vista is like trying to stick a finger covered in alumiunum foil in the electrical outlet lol, vista is microsoft, itunes is apple. Rival OS companies.
Hope this helps.
