    same problem. USB is plugged in, and the Ipod won't charge because itunes isn't recognizing anything plugged in.

First off....DO NOT connect to a USB Hub. DO connect directly to your computer.

Second off...I had exact same problems as listed above so I looked in the manual and it says:

Slide HOLD button to orange and then back to white. Then HOLD the MENU and CENTER button at same time until Apple logo appears.

Worked for me.

Tip

The battery of my iPod is not charging


<p>When you buy an iPod, the device comes with cables that connect the charging device to the computer. When the iPod battery is low, you can recharge by plugging into your desktop or laptop. But sometimes, when you connect your iPod to your computer, the battery charger. According to Apple's site, some problems may prevent your iPod from charging properly. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect your iPod USB charging cable only one USB port on the computer itself. External port devices, such as a USB hub, do not provide enough power to recharge your iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the iPod firewire charging only one firewire port on your computer. Like USB, Firewire ports are not enough of a load to the battery of your iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Disconnect the computer from sleep when the computer set to sleep after a certain time. An iPod can only load on a computer that is connected and not in sleep mode. To enable sleep mode on most computers, you can move the mouse or press the power button once. Hold the power button, which usually turns off the computer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Turn the iPod off and on when the unit is frozen. A frozen iPod is not charging. If the unit is still frozen when you turn it on again, restart the iPod by pressing the "Hold" switch to "On" and then back to "Off" and press and hold a "Menu" and "Select" buttons simultaneously or " Start "and" Menu "button. Hold the buttons until the Apple logo appears on the screen. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Set the system up-to-iPod charger so that when using a Windows 2000 computer. In preparation for the system to load the iPod device to the unit with the charging cable, launch iTunes and "iPod" in the left pane to "Settings" tab to go, check the box next to "Enable Disk use", and click the "Apply" button. Once the configuration is in place, the iPod will charge as normal. <br />

When I connect my ipod nano 4th gen to my PC it won't appear in iTunes or in My Computer... What do I do to fix it?


These directions are taken from Apple.com.
Putting iPod into Disk Mode
http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=93651

"1. Before manually placing the iPod into Disk Mode you should verify
that it has a charge, if not you need to either charge iPod before
continuing or connect it to power. You can either connect it to a
high-powered USB port, or plug the iPod Power Adapter into an
electrical outlet and connect iPod to the power adapter.

2. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)

3. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds
until the Apple logo appears.

4. 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.

5. Disconnect iPod from the power adapter and connect it to your
computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not
disconnect"

If you are having difficulty putting an iPod model with a Click Wheel
into Disk Mode, set the iPod on a flat surface. Make sure that the
finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel.
Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the
outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.

If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk
Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one
finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button."

This of course can also be used in reverse to switch from Hard Drive
mode back to iPod mode.
