I recently bought an ipod nano 6th gen off Amazon and it turned on and is function fine, but I can't sync it with my current library. I'm using the same cord I use on my ipod touch so I assume it's fine there, I've just updated my itunes library and I've already searched through device manager, My computer and itunes to find the device, but it's not showing up anywhere. Any help please?

iPod nano, Windows 7

    Does it connect okay with another PC or Mac running iTunes? Have you tried resetting the Nano with it still connected to the PC? To do this, press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Volume Down buttons together long enough for the Apple logo to appear


    It wouldn't hurt to also try another available USB port.

    Me neither.  I know the USB cable works okay with your iPod Touch, but can you try another cable just to see if that makes a difference?


    Also look at the Nano's dock connector to make sure it is clean and clear of debris or damage.


    And if nothing else, return it while you still can for a refund or replacement.
