Re: ipod nano and Sony Walkman wont work?
Since you are having issues with both players, I would suspect that your USB port may be less than 2.0, or may require reinstalling the drivers (Go to start --> control panel --> system --> hardware --> Device Manager --> USB Controllers --> Reinstall Driver to correct). Double check with Sony and Apple - they will be of infinitely more help to you than Dell. It is possible that your devices require SP2 of Windows XP - double-check on that. Apple and Sony's websites are chock full of good information - they may be having the Windows Media Player 11 compatibility issue for which a firmware upgrade can resolve.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

thanks for using fixya to solve your problems, i think the battery is down and need to be charge before you cn power on your ipod again. connect the charger or adapter to the ipod and plug it to AC power supply, leave for a while or some minutes before you power it on.
NOTE: don't always allow your battery to run down before you charge it.
Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod Nano. Plug the
other end of the USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC
computer. Open the iTunes program by using the Dock on a Mac or the
Start menu on a PC.
Select your iPod Nano from the "Devices" list in the main iTunes
window. Click on the "Sync" button to make a connection between your
computer and your iPod Nano.
Click on the "Eject" symbol once the syncing process is complete.
Remove your iPod Nano from the USB cable. The iPod's lock code will now
be reset and you will be able to access all features again.
Navigate to the "Screen Lock" option in the iPod menu to lock your
iPod's screen again. Since your iPod's lock code was just reset, you
will be prompted to select a new four-digit code.
You can unlock your iPod nano in two ways: â Enter the combination on iPod nano by using the Click Wheel to select the numbers and pressing the Center button to confirm them. If you enter the wrong combination, it flashes red. Try again. â Connect iPod nano to the primary computer you use it with, and iPod nano automatically unlocks. Note: If you try these solutions and you still can’t unlock iPod nano, you can restore iPod nano. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page 50 for more information.
Someone posted a similar problem on another thread and included a solution that worked for him/her. It worked for me as well, when I had the problem. For me, it was not an iTunes or iPod problem but a Windows Vista problem. I don't know what OS your son is running. I've copied the step-by-step instructions from the other thread into this thread for you. Give it a shot - good luck!
Before manually placing the iPod into Disk Mode - verify that it has a charge, if not you need to either charge iPod before continuing or connect it to power. Either connect it to a high-powered USB port, or connect the iPod to the Power Adapter and pluf that into an electrical outlet..
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again. Just slide back and forth. )
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Disconnect iPod from the power adapter and connect it to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect"
