Question about Apple iPod nano

IPod Nano not recognized when plugged to USB

Normally, when plugging the iPod to the USB to recharge, the PC acknowledges immediately that new hardware was added (treats it like a mass storage device). Th iPod displays do not disconnect until clicking "safely removing hardware".

Now, I plug into the USB as before and the PC doesn't acknowledge the new hardware; not even on the laptop where I have iTunes downloaded, therefore I can't even download or synchronize. MY IPOD DOES NOT OPEN

    Me too. After successfully using the nano on my PC for several days, it now is not recognized by the computer. I've warm and cold booted the PC, I've disconnected and reconnected the nano to the USB port, turned the nano off and then on. No matter what I do the nano is now "invisable" to the PC. What the heck is going on???

I have an ipod model a1199. i was wondering if you can use a newer ipod touch charger for it? and if not what kind of charger does it use?


Charge an iPod Nano Without a Charger
If you've misplaced or broken the charger that came with your iPod Nano, you might think you need to purchase a new one in order to continue using your Mp3 player.
However, there is a way that you can continue enjoying your iPod without having to purchase a new charger.
As long as you have a USB cord and a computer, you can charge your iPod without having the charger.

Locate the USB cord that came with your iPod Nano package.
It is the same cord that you use in order to sync or transfer music.
Plug the small end into your iPod Nano.

Plug the other, larger end into your computer's USB port.
Choose "Do Nothing" when your computer presents the dialogue box to let you choose what to do with the hardware or USB connection.
Leave your Nano plugged into your computer for at least 4 hours to charge.
Unplug your iPod Nano when charging is complete.
Charge an iPod Without the Charger
Many iPod owners purchase a charging unit that plugs into a standard wall outlet to recharge the iPod's battery.
However, the iPod wall charger is not included with new purchases, so consumers must either purchase a separate charger or find a way to charge their iPod using other means.
Here's a simple method to charge your iPod using your computer.

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod.
Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC computer.

Open the iTunes program by clicking on the icon in the Dock on a Mac or using the Start menu on a PC.
Click on the name of your iPod under the "Devices" heading in the main iTunes window.
Click on the "Sync" button to synchronize your iPod with your computer data.
While the iPod is syncing, the power from the USB port on your computer will charge your iPod's battery.

Unplug your iPod from the computer once the battery is fully charged.

This one should be ok.

try holding the middle button and menu for like 40 seconds and the apple logo should show up and ask you to plug it into itunes. make sure itunes is open and is the newest version when you plug the nano in.

Apple Ipod isnt recognized on computer


You can only sync one ipod with one computer so if you put music on it already it will only work with the original computer you synced it with. Same with ANY ipod.

Ipod not recognized by computer or itunes


I struggled with this issue for a while and finally found a post that helped me. Hold menu and the center buttons until the iPod turns off. Then, immediately hold the left and center buttons to pull up the iPod diagnostic menu. Scroll down to the option "Reset" and select it. My iPod was finally recognized by iTunes. Good luck :)
