I have a 2GB memory ipod. However, over 874MB are being used by Other (orange bar on itunes), but I have not enabled any of the other settings. I have over 570MB of free space, and I my Ipod is only letting me use 417MB space for songs (blue bar on itunes) so I only have 104 songs capacity. I don't know how this happened. How can I fix the problem and allow more songs to be downloaded. I used to be able to have the full use of the memory. Help!

To download songs to iPod nano:
m Simply connect iPod nano to your computer. If iPod nano is set to update
automatically, the download begins.
Important: The first time you connect iPod nano to a computer, a message asks if you
want to transfer songs automatically. If you accept, all songs, audiobooks, and other
items are deleted from iPod nano and replaced with the songs and other items from
that computer. If you don’t accept, you can still download songs to iPod nano manually
without deleting any of the songs already on iPod nano.
While music is being downloaded from your computer to iPod nano, the iTunes status
window shows progress, and the iPod nano icon in the Source list flashes red.
When the download is complete, a message in iTunes says “iPod update is complete.”
If you set iTunes to download music manually, you can reset it later to update iPod
nano automatically. For more information, see “Updating iPod nano Manually” on
To reset iTunes to update iPod nano automatically with all songs and playlists:
1 Open iTunes and select iPod nano in the Source list.
2 Click the Options button and click Music.
3 Select “Automatically update all songs and playlists.”
The download begins automatically.
if you need further assistance please let me know. Thanks, MIDWEst-tek
You just need to import 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.

Hope it helps. Contact me if you have any other question.
You are supposed to transfer songs usin itunes....simple drag and drop doesnt work....
You can download itunes from www.apple.com\itunes
If you are already using itunes,perform a restore on the ipod using itunes...you will find restore option under the summary tab in itunes.
Apple, the maker of the Ipod, requires you to use "iTunes" software to upload, transfer, and buy songs for your iPod mini. The software installation cd should come with your iPod, if not, you can download it at www.apple.com then going to downloads.
I formatted my ipod Nano (2GB - Model No: A1199) on windows Vista. When I
copy songs from computer it show from computer but not showing in ipod:
Now songs are not playing. I am missing my music. Help me........
Green and ORANGE? orange indicates the iPod is searching for music.
UNDERSTAND this- when you play music in the iTunes app., you are hearing the music in your computer not the iPod.
1) Install the latest iTunes application.
2) Do a restore
3) sync your iPod
