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
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
try charging it ...if that doesnt work try getting it into disk mode-here's how..slide hold button a couple of times to off and on and then when hold is off press and hold menu and center buttons till you a see a silver apple on the screen then connect to PC and it should be detected...restore with itunes....that shud work....
Did you perform a software upgrade on you NANo before this happened? The latest firmware is supposedly having a ton of bugs. The simplest resolution for this is to connect your Nano to your PC , open iTunes and use the restore option to restore the device to the previously installed firmware. Hopefully this will resolve the issue. Post back if its not fixed so that we can try something else.
Car chargers for iPod are a failed concept - you will see that tons of people have posted that exact same problem on this website. The problem is that the car reformats the player, and then the computer reformats the player again, causing data loss. try the 5 R's and reload the songs:
Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, Restore

Basicly you simply need the itunes, and then your music, witch is on your ipod and your itunes account? so I think you simple have to install itunes, login, plug the ipod in and everything should work as before. Might be a bit difrent if the itunes program has been updated from your previous version.
I think you can order a new cd from apple if you need one.
Your ipod has to be plugging into a high speed usb port, that's your problem. Don't use the usb ports on front of your computer, use the one's in the back. Those are typically high speed. If you have an older computer, you might not have high speed usb ports and you'll need to purchase an pci usb 2.0 adapter.
Once you get it connected to the computer and you sync with your library it will remove any songs that were previously on the ipod.
