I pod Nano...

Hi. I asked the question this morning about my son's ipod nano. It will charge with the cord, but wouldn't sync songs. It had worked until just last night! Thank you so much for the advice you posted! It was te best $10 that this single mom ever spent. Now, i won't have to go and by a new one for $200!!!!!! Now, if you could only help me find the other child's one, lol But thanks anyway for great, user friendly directions that even a MOM could understand and follow. Thanks again, Marla Hodges

Two possible answers i found....

Are the playlists still on your computer? (This is the obvious question). If the songs have been moved on your computer or off of your computer, they'd need to be put back on and into iTunes.
If your songs are stored locally but the iPod is still not syncing, check to see if you have 'manually manage your own music' checked. If you do, it won't sync automatically, so make sure it's unchecked.
If that doesn't work, try turning on the 'Enable Disk Use' option in the preferences. If syncing still doesn't work, try ejecting (from within iTunes, *not* the Windows System Tray) and connecting again. If that still doesn't work, try enabling manual updating of songs, creating a playlist, and dragging it onto the ipod icon in iTunes.
I hope that helps. Let me know if it doesn't.

Other answer i got was 1. On the left menu bar in iTunes, go to your iPod (the thing will be called whatever you named your iPod)
2. Near the top of the screen, there will be tabs. Click on the second one that says 'Music'.
3. Now, make sure 'Sync Music' is checked and directly below it, make sure that 'All Songs and Playlists' is checked and NOT 'Selected Playlists'. Your iPod, if connected, should start downloading immediately.

IPOD NANO SONGS ARENT WORKING!!!


Test the songs that are not playing on the iPod in iTunes and see if the original file is still playable on iTunes if the song still plays re-sync your iPod could be when iTunes copied the song it must have failed or timed out, if that fails re-syncing try restoring you iPod Nano i have had this problem before and I just re-synced and it worked fine!

I pod nano looses songs and scrambles albums.


This may have something to do with how the ipod is reading the names of the songs.
Hook your ipod up to iTunes and when the summary screen comes up uncheck the "automatically sync music"
This will put it in Manage Music Manually mode.
click the music folder and inspect the song titles.
if a son has something in the name such a a number before the name title change the song name to remove the numeral. see if it comes back in order.
as for losing songs, the ipod will remove songs when you sync if it doesn;t find it in your playlist.
this may be whats going on.

How do i activate an i pod nano


If the nano is working Ok you shouldn't need to do anything other than connect it to a computer. The battery may be flat so it could take a few hours to charge up; after that you should have the device recognised by iTunes and some synch option will pop up.

Your library needs to be rebuilt to version 8.0 before ITunes will work. Once the database is rebuilt, your songs will reappear in Itunes for use.

Give Itunes the library that your files are in using the folder options. Itunes will rebuild the library off of those settings.

Backup your purchased songs asap.
