Re: İpod nano not seen at explorer and itunes
- check the cable
- check the connections on the bottom of the ipod for bent pins, or dirt
- make sure ipod battery is fully charged
- if you have all your library backed up, reset ipod to factory. You will lost all settings etc. though.
- check usb ports are working properly with no conflicts or driver issues (control panel\system\hardware\device manager)
- uninstall usb ports on pc, let pc redetect them

Check system requirements. - iPod nano (5th generation) requires the following minimum versions of Windows: either Windows XP (Service Pack 3 or later), Vista or Windows 7. If you have one of these versions of Windows, verify that Windows is fully up to date by downloading and installing software updates from Microsoft. If you have Windows XP with Windows XP Service Pack 1 or Windows XP Service Pack 2, download and install Service Pack 3 using Windows Update.
AMDS online? - iPod nano requires Apple Mobile Device Support (AMDS), which should be automatically installed with iTunes. To verify whether it is installed, click Start > Control Panel. Open the Addor Remove Programs control panel and verify that Apple Mobile Device Support is visible in the list of currently installed programs. If it is not, remove and reinstall iTunes.
Check USB connection. - Disconnect all USB devices from the system with the exception of the iPod nano and any USB keyboard and mouse. Then restart your computer. Verify that you are using a high-powered USB 2.0 port. Test with an alternate iPod USB cable if one is available.
AMDS - Re-verify that AMDS is running and installed.
Which USB ports are you using? I just had this issue on a customer's computer and it turns out that a 5 port USB 2.0 hub they had installed in the pc wasn't functioning properly and so I would get a code 10 on their iPod nano. I plugged it into the onboard USB 1.0 ports and it installed correctly and synched. I would suggest trying other USB ports. If that doesn't work then go to Programs and Features in Control Panel and uninstall all apple products and then reboot and reinstall iTunes.
Try another computer just for the kicks of it and see if does the same. Your computer has this little program deep down call iTunes helper that's suppose to link the USB iPod to iTunes. If it's not working right nothing will happen when connected. If the iPod works on another machine, iTunes helper is the problem or also even bad USB port could be the problem. Send me an update and I'll keep helping you troubleshoot. - Scotty
