Any iPod Nano owners out there?
My hubby just got me one with his hotel points and so far this little thing has me stumped! I am not real happy with the "Quickstart" instructions it came with and then I found out that it is supposed to charge the battery through the computers USB and it is not doing anything. I went to the Apple website and saw a video where it said that as soon as you plug it in, iTunes will ask you to name it but nothing has happened, no battery charging, nothing. I called Apple and after waiting on hold for 15 minutes, she had me hold the inner circle and the Menu button (which did nothing)then said I might need to take it to a Apple Store or even send it back for repairs?!

So that was when I thought I would come here and see if anyone here has had similar issues. Anyone know how this little thing works?

I have a Nano and yeah, that's weird. Are you sure your USB port is working? Does the Nano turn on at all? Is the Lock switch on top switched to Unlock?

It does turn on and the lock is off. I have tried both of the USB ports on the front of the computer and 1 or 2 in the back...

It might just be the cable that came with your ipod... do you have an Apple store anywhere near by?

If I remember correctly, the nano won't turn on, until you've got it plugged in correctly, that first time. And you can't really do anything with it until you've got Itunes installed and running.

I'm pretty sure you don't even have to turn the ipod on...just plug it in, and it automatically turns on, and connects to itunes (although I switched the option to have itunes automatically open off)

This should be what yours' looks like when it is plugged in

Ok, I feel kinda stupid cause it was not plugged in all the way! It has already downloaded my 5 songs and it is now charging.

Thanks for trying to help!

This actually happens to me, for some reason it doesn't always charge when I plug it in to my computer (sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't). I actually use the wall charger that I had from when I had the ipod mini when it first came out. It works with all ipods. The cable that comes with the ipod to plug into your computer plugs into the charger then into the ipod. Its $30 but I think its worth it since you can use it when you travel and don't have a computer.
