Don't know how to reject the ipod nano when charging at computer


  1. Once the iPod is attached to the iPod and USB port in the computer, an icon will appear at the bottom of the computer desktop. The icon is from removing the USB Mass Storage Device
  2. Now, click on the enject icon and it will show which drive the USB cord is attached to. Once the icon is clicked on, the iPod will show an arrow going down and reading "OK to disconnect". Once able to disconnect, the USB cord can be removed from iPod.
  3. Another way to eject the iPod from USB cord is through iTunes. Once anything you want sync'd to your iPod is complete, a message will appear on the iPod reading, "OK to disconnect". Just like it did on the ejecting icon on your desktop.

Ipod wont show up on itunes


You can try connecting it to another computer and see if it works there. If it does then it is Windows or your computer or the USB port or driver. You could also uninstall iTunes and reinstall it and then check if it connects. If it shows up then, you can select to restore it on the info screen, it will reset it back to factory and wipe it clean.

Hope this helps

Need driver for ipod nano for windows millenium


Hi,
You will need to download the latest version of iTunes. It is free. When you have done that, load all of your music into iTunes. Then connect your iPod to the computer with the internet connected. You should be able to see your iPod on the left side of iTunes. You can then click the music tab to tell itunes what music to load into your iPod.

Be sure to click the arrow next to your iPod when the syncing is finished to release your iPod from itunes. Also click the green plug icon at the bottom right of your windows screen. If you cannot see the plug, click on the white arrow until you see the green plug. Click on it and you will see your ipod listed as a mass storage device and a message asking if you want to disconnect it. Click disconnect mass storage device and wait until you see a message saying ;safe to disconnect mass storage device. Done. Hope that helps.

Ipod wont show up on itunes


When you have a high speed device like the ipod plugged into a non high speed usb hub, all that means is that it will take the ipod about twenty times longer to load up under itunes then it will using a high speed port. Try connecting the ipod to a different usb port and see if that one is a high speed port (if it is, it will most likely have 2.0 written beside it, and if it does not have it, when you plug it in, it will tell you if it is a non high speed usb port. The same message should pop up. Try all of the usb ports on your computer. You should have at least 1 high speed port.

In order to get an Ipod to work on your computer never plug it into a USB hub. The hub does something to the power of the device that causes it to not perform, be recognized, or charge. Find a spare USB port to plug it in and see if it will find it.

USB hubs do not work on external hard drive devices. Jump drives will work on a hub

Your ipod has to be plugging into a high speed usb port, that's your problem. Don't use the usb ports on front of your computer, use the one's in the back. Those are typically high speed. If you have an older computer, you might not have high speed usb ports and you'll need to purchase an pci usb 2.0 adapter.

Once you get it connected to the computer and you sync with your library it will remove any songs that were previously on the ipod.
