Question about Apple iPod nano 3rd Generation
I created a playlist in I-Tunes but I can't figure out how to transfer this playlist to my Ipod Nano
Open iTunes and plug in your iPod. On the left sidebar there should be your iPod name (If you can't find the sidebar, go to iTunes menu bar, under View, select Show Sidebar), go to your iTunes playlist and drag the songs you want to your iPod. For all of the songs, go to your iPod music library, even if you don't have songs, and on the bottom there should be a blue-ish bar. There might be a box saying "Autofill from iTunes library" click that ONLY if you want ALL songs from your iTunes to your iPod.
If you want to know how to put video or DVD movie onto iPod, I think this step by step guide would help you.
Hope it helps. Feel free to email me if you need further help.

As is known, iTunes helps to sync media files and apps, when you're about to sync music to your iPod, you'll find the option of syncing playlist. When you check the playlist to sync, you will sync the whole playlist to your iPod. But please note that if you have saved playlist(s) in your device, you will need to check these playlist(s) as well in case that iTunes erase the playlists during the sync.
In avoidance of losing playlist in iPod nano during the sync with iTunes, I suggest you export your playlists to computer and then import playlist to iPod with the iOS transfer software. To export a playlist from iTunes to computer, you only need to launch iTunes and click File > Library > Export Playlist, then save the playlist as an .m3u file.
After exporting the playlist to computer, you can use Leawo iTransfer to transfer playlist to iPod nano.

I have a similair problem. My iPod Nano refuses to appear in iTunes and now I cannot put songs on or take em off. I did try restarting my computer, and eventually I put my new CD on, but now it only appears as a drive in My Computer. Dont go looking for help from the Apple website, all they'll do is make you want to get a Mac. :p

You most likely will have to put the ipod into disc mode and restore it. But heres a few things you can attempt

Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.
When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time are preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on.

How to restore iPod (ARTICLE NUMBER HT1339)
Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software.
The 4 possible restore options are: Restore Option
1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod. Restore Option
2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available. Restore Option
3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available. Restore Option
4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.
A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started.
When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).
Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).
During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.
Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

Is your ipod nano fully charged? and your installed iTunes the latest version?
Please make sure it is charged, and the new iTunes is downloaded and installed from here please do the following steps:
Connect ipod nano to PC. Make sure iTunes is already open prior to connecting it.
If this is the first time you are connecting then your PC will automatically install Apple Mobile Device Driver.
Once installation of the driver is complete, you should see the ipod nano logo appear within iTunes very soon. and start using it.
