You need to download iTunes from Once downloaded you just add your music to the iTunes librairy or buy new music from the iTunes store then you sync the iPod with your librairy, it's fairly easy to do.

Or, I prefer using mediamonkey but it's a little harder to use and I think you need to buy it to enable syncing with iPods.

I cant get my music of my ipod nano onto my new netbook? i HAVE A NEW NETBOOK WHICH IS WINDOWS 7 AND I CANT TRANSFER MY MUSIC OFF MY IPOD NANO 4GB ONTO MY NETBOOK?

iDevices (iPod, iPhone, etc) usually can only be managed through iTunes. So the first thing you should do is install iTunes (you can download it off Apple's website).

After installing iTunes and connecting your iPod, you must open My Computer then double click your iPod's icon. Then, click on Tools, Options, and in the View tab check the "Show hidden files and folders" option. You should then see an "iPod_Control" folder. Inside it there'll be a "Music" folder, with all your songs. Just drag them back to your computer.

But remember: you can only manage your iPod's music through iTunes. If you add or change songs on your iPod without using iTunes, these songs won't be recognized.

How do i download music to my ipod nano it doesnt show up on my computer

You just need to drag your song into iTunes library, then make a playlist with the songs, plug in your iPod to computer, iTunes will detect the iPod automatically, then click iTunes menu "File -> Sync iPod", the songs will be transferred from iTunes to iPod.

If you want to know how to convert video and put DVD movie on iPod, I think this step by step guide would help you
You can get useful information by visiting Apple official site:

Cannot download music videos to ipod nano classic

hi, buddy
First, you need to ensure ur video is in ipod-friendly format MPEG4(MP4), M4V... if not, you can use iTunes to convert them...

Next, use iTunes to sync them to ur iPod. If you wanna more convenient, you could download this iPod manager tool - Daniusoft iPod transfer :

1. Backup videos/songs from computer to iPod directly ;
2. Transfer iPod files to computer smoothly ;
3. Transfer iPod video/music to iTunes .

need to download itunes (free) from apple website, then drop computer music into it. If not the right file it will take some time to convert it. (Ipod doesnt use mp3s, uses something else).
