Re: ipod nano (unable to download music onto it)

1st answer: You may have a non-Apple product. There are lots of knockoffs of the Nano. Here is a link to check:

Yes, he can but it would have to be done manually, meaning outside of the iTunes application. When the iPod is connected to a computer, it will show up on the desktop of a Mac as another disk drive. Be warned, as soon as you connect the new iPod to the computer, iTunes will load and attempt to sync (copy) all the songs in its library to the iPod. Check here for more:

Unable to download music to apple ipod.

font.f1 {font: 12.0px Times} font.f1 {font: 12.0px Times} Hello and thanks for contacting FixYa Technical Support.

font.f1 {font: 12.0px Times} • In order to import music into your iPod. All you need to do is:

font.f1 {font: 12.0px Times} • First make sure you have downloaded your music into the iTunes Library.
font.f1 {font: 12.0px Times} •Then from the iTunes menu bar, click on File>New Playlist in order to create a new playlist.

You will see a new "untitled playlist" Folder, on the right side bar in the iTunes window. Name that folder as you see fit.

Now take all of your music that you want to add to the new playlist, from the iTunes Library and drag all those songs into the playlist.

* From here, you will need make sure your iPod is connected to your computer and that the device is showing up in iTunes.

Once you see the iPod connected, go into its settings and select the Music tab, make sure to activate the Playlists and select that new playlist from the list of playlists you see.
(Make sure if you have other playlists in that list you want to add, be sure to check off those boxes too)

* Finally when you have selected that playlist (and all your desired playlists) that you want to import into your iPod:

* Proceed to sync your iPod

* Once the sync process is completed, you should see the playlist you made with your desired songs from your iTunes Library, now on your iPod Nano.

I hope this helps.

You need to use itunes as your music management software and ipod management software. You can download the latest itunes version at

From here you can purchase items through the itunes music store, or add your own music by adding files from your computer, or putting a cd in your computer and coppying it into itunes so you can put the songs on your ipod.

Hope this helped,

I put music from my computor onto the ipod when it is plugged into the computer it plays the song but doesn't recognise any song are it when it is not plugged in?

I am assuming you are a new user with your ipod.
You can play and view your music on the ipod only if you transfer the files thru itunes.
You can go to the apple website or and download itunes.
After downloading it.Install the software and add your music onto your ipod through itunes.
Now your ipod will recognise all the songs you add.
and if i helped u solve ur problem in any way...please help me by clicking on the fixya rating.. 
thank you.
