Normally, if you can connect your iPod nano to the computer it is authorized to work

your iPod nano is unavailable, you can connect iPod nano to another computer and
use iPod Updater to restore your iPod software. See the next section for more

automatically, you can find the updater by choosing Start > All Programs > iPod.

can use the iPod Updater application that was installed on your computer when you
installed the software from the iPod CD.
