Our ipod nano 2nd generation (4 gb) will not mount.
Have tried so far:
3 different computors
3 different cables
Reboot Imac while the ipod is connected
Will not mount in disk mode either.
The ipod works goods, it charges when we plug it but we can't see it anymore either on the desktop, in itune, we don't see it is in "about this mac" in the usb connections.
Any help would be appreciated.
I had the same problem -- I tried to reset my ipod but it didn't work and my computer didn't recognize it. Did you toggle the on and off hold switch before trying to reset it? Disk mode will only work if you toggle the hold switch, and then pushing center and menu buttons. Hope I helped!

This watch is compatible with iPod 5th generation (video); iPod Nano 2nd generation (aluminum) 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB; iPod 5th generation (video) 60GB and 80GB; iPod Nano 1st generation 1GB, 2GB, 4GB; and the iPhone.
The ipod nanos the smallest product in the Apple iPod line. The fourth generation
Nano comes in two different capacities, each capable of holding
thousands of songs.
The fourth generation iPod Nano comes in 8 GB and 16 GB models. The 8
GB version can hold 2,000 songs, and the 16 GB version can hold 4,000
Song capacity estimates are based on music encoded in Apple's
proprietary format at a standard, average bitrate. The higher the
bitrate, the better the quality. Songs deviating from Apple's standard
(for example, CD-quality music or high bitrate MP3s) will use more disk
Nano's predecessor, the iPod Mini, was released on January 6, 2004, and
was available with a 4 GB hard drive. The Nano was first released on
September 7, 2005, and was the first iPod to use flash memory. It was
first available in 2 GB and 4 GB versions. The fourth generation Nano
was released on September 9, 2008.
The fourth generation iPod Nano is 3.6" tall and 1.5" wide.
The third generation Nano, released on September 5, 2007, was the first
Nano to feature video playback. Storing videos on Nano can dramatically
reduce the amount of songs it can hold.
If you can't connect iPod nano to your computer , make sure;
you have installed the latest iTunes software from www.apple.com/ipod/start.
Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer. Note: A USB 2.0 port is recommended to connect iPod nano. USB 1.1 is significantly slower than USB 2.0. If you have a Windows PC that doesn’t have a USB 2.0 port, in some cases you can purchase and install a USB 2.0 card. For more information, go to www.apple.com/ipod.
iPod nano might need to be reset (see page 64).
If you’re connecting iPod nano to a portable or laptop computer using the iPod Dock Connector to USB 2.0 Cable, connect the computer to a power outlet before connecting iPod nano.
Make sure you have the required computer and software. See “If you want to double check the system requirements” on page 68.
Check the cable connections. Unplug the cable at both ends and make sure no foreign objects are in the USB ports. Then plug the cable back in securely. Make sure the connectors on the cables are oriented correctly. They can be inserted only one way.
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
I have the same ipod and had the same problem - I ignored itunes and the computer and went to "real player" and treated it like an mp3 player and in real player you pick your music you want to burn to a cd but go to "device" column and change the destination from burning to your internal cd burner to the external drive which is the ipod and it downloaded perfect! hope this helps
