Question about Apple iPod nano

4 Answers

Transferring music Hello, I have a 4 GB iPod nano Red( 2nd gen). It was given to me by my uncle. It has around 3GB of music in it. I want to remove some of these songs and add my favourite songs. If i sync the ipod with my pc i will lose all the songs that are there on it. I tried copying the songs on the ipod to my pc, they get saved on my hard disk but the song names are coming abbreviated( like EJKK/DDLJ/etc) Please advice as to how i can make a backup of the songs on the ipod on my pc without the song names coming abbreviated. Thanking you in anticipation.

Re: Transferring music

You will need to utilize some iPod transfer program to help you.
iCopy is a popular program out there. You can give it a try.

It will help transfer all music and video (both purchased and non-purchased) from iPod to iTunes and secure your iPod media content by copying it to your PC. More importantly, it will flawlessly sort video and audio content and preserve all your playlists.
Best luck!

Re: Transferring music

Okay. If you want to remove one song, gp to Music and then just right click and click delete. But it won't delete the song from the whole computer.. It'll only delete it from the itunes libarary. If the name comes abbreviated then right lick on it and go to info tab and chnage the name to the title of the song. Hope this helps.

Re: Transferring music

I wish to transfer music from my PC to my new Ipod nano, it appears to connect and transfer okay, but no music is shown on the menu. Is it because the said music down loaded on my PC is from Limewrie?

Hi, basicly i got my blue ipod nano 2nd gen off my friend and when i downloaded itunes suddenly all my music was deleted and a message saying empty disk and when i try to sync music i have errors on every...

Normally, you cannot sync an ipod to more than one system at a time. You have to wipe out all the songs that it previously occupied before so that it can accept songs from a new computer.
It is quite normal for all the songs that were previously on it to be flushed out when you connect it to a new computer.
Now to the main issue of getting errors on every song, this is not normal.
The only solution to this is to restore the software using the itunes program.
This will help you format the memory of the device thereby removing any sort of system errors or malfunctions in the system of the device.

IPod Nano 4 GB -- what gen?

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

Did you place the music on your iPod via iTunes, or just drag and drop to the device?

The music must be added through iTunes, or the iPod will just act as an external hard drive--storing your music, but you can't play it.

If you just dragged and dropped, take it off your iPod, start up iTunes, then add the music that way.
