Question about Apple iPod nano

Computer cant find ipod

I plug my ipod in through USB and the ipod starts to charge but the computer doesnt recognise it as a mass storage device nor recognise it as 'plugged in' when using itunes. If i plug another ipod in with the same cable it finds it instantly. I've tried using a different cable but get the same results.

Ipod not recognised in itunes


You should try connecting the iPod to a different computer and see if it works. If it doesn't work, you should try connecting with a different USB cable if you can get a hold of one. One of the two should be your problem (a defective USB port on the computer or a defective iPod USB cable).

If your iPod fails to hold a charge and it's more than a year old, you may need a new battery - http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/servic...
