Ipon nano 3rd generation red. Sync and storage problems.

I have just got the new iPod nano (product red) 8 GB capacity. When i started to sync with my Intel Macbook i got suprised with a sync and storage problem. It starts syncing and suddendly it stops and lock the iPod and the Itunes. The must surprising is that happens every time the storage capacity reaches about 300 mb of music. Does anybody got this kinf of problem?
I have tried all the solutions I have found: formatting the iPod, connecting on a PC, restoring the factory settings and nothing works.

You'll want to copy what is currently on the Nano to your iTunes library on the laptop.  Your iPod can only be synced with one iTunes library at a time. See this older post from another forum member Zevoneer covering the different methods and software available to assist you with the task of copying content from your iPod back to your PC and into iTunes.

  • My iPod nano (3rd generation) shut off and wont turn back on?

    I was putting new music on my Ipod, and one day after working perfectly fine, i got to a song my friend got for me. After lintening to it for about thirty seconds, my ipod shut off. I tried holding down the home button, but nothing hapened.  I also tried charging it. The computer will not recognize it either. Is there something i can do to make it work, or do i have to bringit in to an apple store?

    What have you tried so far in terms of troubleshooting?  If nothing else, work through each of the 5 R's of troubleshooting for your iPod to rule out the possibility of any sort of software error/glitch or data corruption.

    Otherwise, you have a hardware issue, meaning you'll need to either take or send your iPod in for service/replacement either via Apple or a third party service.

  • Ipod nano 3rd generation doesn't play music and doesn't synchronize with itunes

    I have a ipod nano 3rd generation ( 8 GB) and it suddenly stopped playing music. The ipod doesn't  play music even if I choose another song and the ipod doesn't synchronize with itunes anymore. I did a reset of the ipod and I installed itunes new but the synchronization doesn't works.

    Get a flashlight and make sure there is no obstruction/dirt/debris in the Nano headphone jack. Be sure you plug the headphones all the way in, the plastic on the headset jack should be flush with the body of the Nano.

  • IPod nano 3rd gen turnes off and on by itself

    I have a problem: my iPod nano 3rd generation turns off and on by itself every 5-7 seconds.
    How can I solve this problem?

    Is there a case around this iPod? It might be pushing on the touch wheel. Does it happen when you flick the lock switch? If so it seems like a restore is in order

  • Does the iPod nano 3rd Generation charge and sync in an iPhone 3G Dock?

    I wanna bye an iPhone 3G Dock. Now I have the question if I can connect my iPod nano 3rd Generation to the new dock for syncing and charging. On Apples homepage is the campatibility status set to only iPhone 3G, but I question this because older docks, like the one for the old iPod Photo works with other iPods as well.
    The dock connector on the iPhone 3G dock seems to be the same as the one on the charging cable and that cable has to be inserted in the dock. So why should it not work?
    I know I could bye the iPhone 3G cradle for the universal dock I already have, but I want to have the ability to make speakerphone conversations with the iPhone in the dock. That only works well with the original iPhone 3G dock.
    Can someone help me?

    Bit late on the old reply, but i'm using a different Apple Dock for my Nano. I have the Universal one,but it looked so big for the little Nano. I stumbled across an iPhone one by mistake, but only cost me £7 delivered, brand new.
    So in answer to your question, yes. And it enables me to get a skin on the iPod and still use the dock...

  • I have ran the diagnostics test on iTunes and iPod.  The diagnostic says there is an iPod, it is identified with the correct name, but it says there is no sync ability.  What can I do?  iPod nano 3rd generation.  All updates are current.

    It had not been used for awhile and most of the songs that were on there were gone when I turned it on.  I was trying to sync to update the library.

    Weeks, months, years?  It's possible your battery is dying.  Take the iPod Nano to an Apple store or an AASP.  Whichever is more convenient for you.

  • Im trying to sync photos from my mac to my iPod nano 3rd generation, and an error keeps coming up that says "format could not be converted". How do I fix this?

    Im trying to sync photos from my mac to my iPod nano 3rd generation, and an error keeps coming up that says "format could not be converted". How do I fix this?

    Hi newipoduser,
    Here are some possible solutions:
    Do you use musicmatch jukebox on your computer? If you do, you have to go into task manager on windows and end process mim.exe. It interferes with disconnecting ext devices
    Empty your "trash/recycle bin."
    If that doesn't work, try quitting all your programs, especially music-type programs, basically things that look for mp3's etc.
    if that doesn't work, "log off" then "log on" and that should refresh/purge your OS system.
    Finally, you can restart your computer.
    Hope one of these helps!
    Cheers,

  • I still have my iPod Nano 3rd generation, but my old computer crashed and I did not have itunes backed up, so I lost my library. Is there a way to get the songs from my old ipod to new computer library and then on to the new ipod?

    Save all the photos from your Droid into a folder on your computer.
    Connect your device to your computer. On iTunes left Pane, select iPhone under 'Devices'; then on the right Pane, select PHOTO tab.  Make sure Sync Photo box is checked, and "from" box selected the folder that has Droid's photos.  Then click the SYNC or APPLY button on the lower right window.

  • 1 iPod Nano 3rd generation and 2 user accounts on Mac Mini

    My husband and I share our Mac Mini and we log in under separate user
    names. He is the administrator for the computer. My problem started
    when I initially purchased Phase and I could not upload it to my
    iPod Nano 3rd generation. So in an effort to demonstrate the problem I had my husband log
    in to the Mac Mini under his user name and then logged into the
    iTunes store using my account information and bought Scrabble. He was
    able to upload Phase to the iPod but then when I logged into my user
    name on the Mac Mini and went to the iTunes store I could only see
    Scrabble (not Phase) and in order to download it I was forced to sync
    my Games on the iPod which overwrote the Phase game. So now I only
    have Scrabble on my iPod and I can't see Phase in my iTunes account.
    How do I remedy this?

    Hello HernanOtt,
    Depends on where you have it serviced.  Here are Apple's repair quotes.
    http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/service/prices/
    You would probably save a lot of money by having a 3rd party repair company do the job for you instead.  Just do a simple Google search for iPod repair and you'll get a plethora of results.

  • A friend gave me an older Nano 3rd generation. Can anyone tell me how to delete what is on there and how to get rid of his name. It does not connect to my itunes. I cannot even find the source or the place to restore it as suggested in the owners manual.

    I have a 3rd generation ipod that a friend gave me. I cannot find anything on how to get rid of his name and music on it. This is what the owners manual says:
    "Select ipod nano in the soiurce list and click the summary tab" I cannot find the source or the summary tab on itunes. Can any one help me? I would like to delete everything on it and start over but I am afraid I cannot add anything back on it. I know this is detailed and a lot, but I really need help.

    Restore
    Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure toback up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library.
    How to restore your iPod:For Windows:
    1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.
    2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.
    3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes. If the iPod's display doesn't show "Connected" or "Do not disconnect" you may need to put the iPod into disk mode to proceed.
    4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
    5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of 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 on your computer.
    Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
    6. 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 instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.
    7. 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.
    8. 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.
    For Mac:
    1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.
    2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.
    3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes. If the iPod's display doesn't show "Connected" or "Do not disconnect" you may need to put the iPod into disk mode to proceed.
    4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
    5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:

    Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with latest iPod Software version on your computer.
    Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with latest iPod Software version on your computer.
    6. A message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator's name and password.
    7. 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 instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.
    8. 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.

  • Major problem with Syncing my ipod nano 3rd generation! HELP PLZ!!!!!!

    My computer had a virus and i had to reset windows, so all my music got wiped off the system.
    i then reinstalled windows and itunes. the itunes library didn't import any music because there wasn't any music on my computer.
    a few days ago, My ipod nano 3rd generation froze and i had to reset it, all my old music is on my ipod.
    but when i try to sync new music from my library to my ipod - it doesn't work!!!!! It just keeps on saying that my ipod is synced with another library (not true) and that i can't sync it unless i wipe off all the music on my ipod.
    PLEASE HELP!

    Did everyone try the basic "5Rs" first? Mainly did you first try to reset the iPod and then if that didn't work, did you try to restore it?
