I have an old nano (1st genereation) and I can't use it on my new computer. It says I need a driver. I have lost the original disk and can't find the appropriate link at Apple. To make things worse I have now lost my link on the computer to the USB j:/. So it now looks like I have 2 problems!

You can get the neccessary drivers from the internet, type in ipod nano 1st generation drivers for "along with the operating system your computer uses" and you should find them and be able to download them to your pc
You need iTunes software - freely available from the apple.com website (for Windows and Apple operating systems). All the selecting and loading of music, podcasts and videos to your iPod is controlled using iTunes. Once you have that software open it is a fairly intuitive process as your iPod will appear within iTunes as a specific device and you will see all the options for controlling it.
SharePod should allow you to upload music from your iPod to your new computer even though your old computer no longer functions properly
If you have iTunes installed on your new computer, do NOT click yes when you plug it in and it asks if you want to format it. Formatting = BAD if you haven't backed up your iPod yet. To use the iPod with your new computer you will need to eventually format it, but not until you back up your stuff...
Basicly you simply need the itunes, and then your music, witch is on your ipod and your itunes account? so I think you simple have to install itunes, login, plug the ipod in and everything should work as before. Might be a bit difrent if the itunes program has been updated from your previous version.
I think you can order a new cd from apple if you need one.
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: http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/
If you install the itunes version 7.5 that you downloaded, you wont lose your music library. It is a separate file from the programs installation files. You don't need to uninstall the previous version, the new one will install on top of it.
- check the cable
- check the connections on the bottom of the ipod for bent pins, or dirt
- make sure ipod battery is fully charged
- if you have all your library backed up, reset ipod to factory. You will lost all settings etc. though.
- check usb ports are working properly with no conflicts or driver issues (control panel\system\hardware\device manager)
- uninstall usb ports on pc, let pc redetect them
