First I would suggest you make sure the iPod is connected correctly, and that you wait until the iPod has finished updating.
If you are sure of that, you can always restore the iPod to it's original settings.
(I would also suggest that you are using the most updated version of iTunes)
But before you restore your iPod, there are a few steps you can take to try and fix this problem.
If you can’t download a song or other item to iPod nano 
The song might have been encoded in a format that iPod nano doesn’t support. The 
following audio file formats are supported by iPod nano. These include formats for 
audiobooks and podcasting: 
 AAC (M4A, M4B, M4P) (up to 320 Kbps) 
 Apple Lossless (a high-quality compressed format) 
 MP3 (up to 320 Kbps) 
 MP3 Variable Bit Rate (VBR) 
 WAV

The most common is to reset the iPod. To do this:

  •  toggle the Hold switch on and off ( Set it to hold then turn it off again) 
  • Then press and hold the Center and Menu buttons for at least 6 seconds untill the Apple logo appears.
If this does not work I would consider restoring. This means you will loose all your music,pictures, videos..ect. But from it sounds, you don't have anything on your iPod to loose.
update or restore iPod nano with the latest software: 
1 Go to www.apple.com/support/ipod and download the latest iPod Update. The update 
has the latest software for all models of iPod. 

2 Double-click the software installation file and follow the onscreen instructions to install 
the iPod update. 

3 Connect iPod nano to your computer and open iTunes. The iPod Updater application 
opens. 
If you’re using a Windows PC and the iPod Updater application doesn’t open 
automatically, you can find the updater by choosing Start > All Programs > iPod. 

4 Follow the onscreen instructions to update or restore iPod software. 
If you use the iPod Updater application and it doesn’t recognize that iPod nano is 
connected to your computer, reset iPod nano (see page 45). 
If you want to restore iPod software and you don’t have an Internet connection, you 
can use the iPod Updater application that was installed on your computer when you 
installed the software from the iPod CD.

When I try to restore my Ipod Nano Itunes wont let me.it says on the Ipod corrupted restore via Itunes I follow the instuctions but it wont restore.


If itunes is prompting you to restore the ipod but it will not there might be something blocking it on your Computer

The best test is to try to restore from another cpu with itunes

- if it restores then you can take it back to your cpu and re-sync the muisc

- if you get the same error or issue with another cpu

Then is is probably an issue with the hard ware of your ipod

You might want to take it to the apple store or best buy to test

Good luck

All of a sudden after 2 years annot get my iPod to appear on computer. A sign comes up that says "The iPod "Lois' iPod" is synced with another iTunes Library. Do you want to erase this iPod and sync with...


This happens some times the computer has lost the record that the ipod was synced with this computer.

Because the ipod can only be synced with one computer at a time your are getting this message.

if you look in your itunes music library and all the muisc is still there then choose the "erase and sync option" this will erase the ipod and re- sync with this computer -

if your muisc is gone you have a much larger problem you need to search your computer for your missing music then add it back to itune when you find it by :

In itunes you go to the upper left to : File > add Folder to Library > and choose the folder the music is in this will re- add your music to the libray then you can " "erase and sync"

If all you music is gone off your computer a only on your ipod your going to have to download a free ipod rip program to remove all you muisc and put it back into your library. there are free ones you can downalod but they are hard to find I have used www.ipodrescue.com and it worked for me

good luck !

I have music that plays in itunes,loads to my iPod but will not play The file shows up in the library ,but when I try to play it ,it shows a time bar then goes back to song list


If this problem is on the ipod unfortunatley the way you can try is plugging it in to itunes and click restore which will reflash you ipod to it's original firmware and then update it to the new one and also you song can be deleted int his process so be warned!

Tv shows on my ipod


Hi,
I think that when you down load the videos onto your ipod, you are using your iPod as a disk drive. They are on the drive just not where you can see them or view them.

When you do an import in iTunes, you tell iTunes where the videos are and tell iTunes to import the file or folder. You should be using the video tab in iTunes when you do an import. The videos should show up in your video list in iTunes. You then need to tell iTunes to sync your videos. You should then be able to see your shows on your iPod after the syncing is done. Hope that helps.
