Double-check your version of Windows to make sure it is compatible - if it wasn't compatible when the player was first designed (Vista, for instance), get the updated software/firmware from Apple's website

    How to down load a song to my appleipod nano 2gb?

    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 page 22. 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

    I found this on the ipod forum on Apples website. See their site for any further assistance.

    Sometimes you can resolve it by doing the following:
    - Download the .exe file from
    - Go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs
    - iTunes > Remove
    - Open C:\Program Files (default location)
    - Find "iTunes" (default folder name)
    - Shift + Delete > OK
    - Run a registry cleaner, such as PC Tools Desktop Maestro, to remove all old shortcuts and registry keys no longer valid on your computer.
    - Start > Shut Down > Restart your computer
    - Run the iTunes install program

    This should fix the problem, however may require also to update your Windows software ( and download the latest Visual Basic Runtime executable. One time during my clean reinstall the iTunes software mentioned an error with a vb run executable and couldn't continue the install until I found it online.

    My white ipod nano still shows the "do not disconnect" icon when connected to the usb port

    can you uninstall itunes from add or remove programs and after that, install it again. You should get a icon into your desktop, if its not there.

    try to find it

    my computer -> c: -> Program files -> iTunes -> right click iTunes.exe -> send to -> desktop.

    You should now have a icon on your desktop.
