Well you can try downloading from itunes to your computer and the from there copy and paste the files to your ipod. If that dont work then you might need to format it(the ipod)..

But as otacon suggested ensure that you are using the latest version of itunes..

It could be that the file system on the ipod is messed up like mine was, the only way to fix it is formatting it. You can do it from windows xp by right clicking on the removable disc(the one for your ipod) and format it of your ipod has a function to format itself.

How Do I Download Songs Onto My iPod Nano?
IPod Nanos are portable multimedia players that allow you to playback songs and other content (e.g. video) no matter where you go. They come in a variety of memory sizes such as 4GB or 16GB (gigabytes) and work with iTunes to upload songs. ITunes is the iPod default management program which allows you to upload songs to its library, create playlists and sync music on your iPod quickly and easily. This simple process will have you jamming to your favorite songs in no time.

Downloading to an iPod Nano1Connect your iPod Nano to the computer using the USB cable. Launch iTunes if does not automatically launch. When you launch iTunes, it will display your iPod Nano on the left panel.
2Add music to your iTunes library. Click the "File" button on the top menu and click "Add to Library." Locate the song you want to upload to your player and click "Open" to load it to your program.
3Click the "+" button on the lower left panel to create a playlist. Type a name for the playlist and drag the uploaded file to it. To upload additional songs, repeat Step 2 and drag the uploaded additional songs to the created playlist.
4Drag the songs in the playlist up or down to select the order in which the songs will play.
5Sync your iPod Nano. Click the iPod icon on the left panel after importing songs and adding them to the created playlist. Click the "Music" tab and click "Sync music." Click "Select playlists, artists and genres" and select the playlist you created that contains the songs you want to upload. Click "Apply" to automatically sync and download the songs to your iPod Nano.
6Click the "Eject" button and disconnect your iPod from the computer.

Tips & Warnings
Click "Music Store" if you want to purchase a music file. Search for the song on the iTunes store and download it to the iTunes library.

Trying to down load song from my lap top when synk it wounts to remove all song to in stall 12 songs?

I think you are trying to sync with a different library than your own original library that you synced your ipod before. OR the original songs that are in your ipod are no longer in your library. There is a option that you could sync songs manually.
1. Connect your iPod 2. Start iTunes 3. Click on your iPod 4. Check option that says Manually sync songs
Now you can sync your music without deleting the old songs. I hope

Problem with song descriptions after moving from ipod to library

Are the songs listed as the 4 digit description in itunes? Or in the music folder? If its just the music folder don't worry, the music should look just like it does on your ipod when loaded into itunes. If they are in itunes already and still look funny hit me up for sure. I use my ipod to transfer music often

Music on iPods with different s/Nos. mixed up

Connect iPod to computer.
Open up iTunes.
Click on the icon on the left sidebar of iTunes that says "iPod Nano".
Click on the Music tab.
You will notice that at least one folder has been set to "Sync music" - the songs in these folders will be automatically loaded onto your iPod everytime you connect it to your computer. I would suggest separating the music folders that you use and the folders that your wife uses on your computer itself. Then, you can sync only the songs in your own personal folder.
Alternatively, you can disable the "Sync Music" option altogether by unchecking the box.

Whichever choice you make, you will now need to manually go in and delete the songs you don't want.
You can do this by clicking on the Music icon underneath the iPod Nano icon on the left sidebar of iTunes. Find a song you no longer want on your iPod, right-click the song, and select delete.

Good luck!

Got a new computer and tried to download songs on my ipod nano from my itunes account and somehow i deleted all my songs i already bought from itunes. how do i get them back?

If they are not showing on the itunes library page, they may still be on the computer...have a look under 'my documents' and 'music' see if there is a an itunes folder in there if there is open it and look for the itunes music folder. Hopefully if you just deleted them from your library and not your computer they will still be there.
