I have iPod nano (7th generation). I also tried to sync it with the latest iTunes 11.0.2 in MacBook Pro (early 2011). It would not detect it.
Then, I went to BootCamp side and use Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium (french 32-bit edition). I also downloaded the latest iTunes 11.0.2, and for some reason it detected it fine! Weird.
Maybe it is corrupt or something. I do not know. My iPad 1 is working fine in Mac mode for iTunes.

I can't thank you enough. I have been struggling for days to try and download from iTunes to my new iPod nano 7. I was about to use it as a very tiny boat anchor or bury it in the dog's dinner until I tried your suggestions. Worked perfectly. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I am glad anything helped you in a good way. I am humble because I do not think my suggestions are valuable to anyone. Please enjoy! You do not need to thank me. If you are happy then I helped at least one person in my life and maybe I get to go to HEAVEN.

As long as it works. I am just grateful to God that I have something that works. It is a blessing that even though I have an eMachines T3104 that it works with my iPod! I also have an Apple too, however, it does not hurt to have a backup. The funny thing is that I like using old technology better at certain times.

I bought this Ipod Nano - 7th generation - 2 weeks ago and it will not sync with my itunes at all. I have followed the instructions here and it appears to be syncing, says that it is syncing, subtracts the correct amount of room on the available space on the nano, but when I eject and disconnect - NOTHING! No music. Then I go through the whole process and still nothing. I spent alot of money buyiong music two weeks ago and this is incredibly frustrating. Any other ideas????

There are two other options that I can think of off the topic of my head.
The iPod nano (7th generation) can be used as a USB flashdrive.
If you have Windows XP, you can plug it in and format it.
Then you can go to your iTunes (whether Mac or Windows) and restore the software.
Restoring your device to original factory usually works in this case.
You can search online for "restore iPod nano 7th to factory" or something like that.
Praise Jesus Christ for any help I gave you!hehe

This is a secret so do not tell.
If you can figure it out.
There is a way to manually restore it to a different factory setting.
There might be versions of factory out that are not standard on Apple.
I think you have to hold down shift and press restore on the iTunes menu for you iPod nano.
Anyways, you first have to download the IPSW file which is the factory default software.
To date, I only know of two available. Maybe three.
However, you might be able to talk to the developers into developing a special version for you.
There is the Apple official developers as well as the unofficial ones.

I received a Nano gen 7 for Christmas and could not get it to sync or even be recognized by either my PC or iMAC.....I do have the latest iTunes software on both....and reinstalled it on both twice and tried different USB ports on both machines. Returned this one for another one...same problem. Returned this one for credit....will stick to my two older Nanos that do work!!!
