1. Open iTunes. 2. Select songs to be converted to aac/MP3 80 kbps mono. 3. Convert the songs you want. You cannot do this for video. If you want to reduce the size of video, then try using a video converter like AVS Video Converter and convert it to a 320x240 resolution. Try changing the sound format too. Sometimes, a drastic change in quality can occur. In this case, convert the audio into a slightly better format.

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
this is what you will do, when you sync it again stop the automatic sync the click on your player on the itunes window to see its details, you will see 3 or 4 checkboxes and check manually add music or songs and ucncheck if there is any, the box that says automatically sync music, then click sync, it will start syncing again the disconnect. add songs only to the folder where itunes have got the songs so that next time you sync the ipod the songs previously added wont be erased.
for further details check here...
Open up iTunes and if you don't have it you can download it from here http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ then when it's open you can import music by clicking file in the top left corner and then import/open file(s) once you have selected your file(s) you can then plug your iPod in if isn't already and then when you see the iPod Nano tab appear on the side bar on the left hand side you can go to the music library and just simply drag and drop your files to where it says "iPod Nano" or whatever you called it
Hope this helps.
When you plug the iPod into the computer, a window may or may not pop up, depending on what you told Windows to do with the player the first time you connected it. If the window does not pop up automatically, double-click My Computer, double-click the icon of the iPod, and you should see a folder that says Music. If this folder is missing, that may explain your symptoms. Right click a blank area of the Nano window, and select New --> Folder --> and create a folder named "Music". Try syncing again, and see if it works.
