Again, you need iTunes 10.7 that includes updated drivers and support for the 7G Nano.

Actually I checked that before I posted. I have 10.7.

That's a good start. What happens when you plug the 7G Nano in to your PC? What shows on the iPod's display?

Well, the iPod display shows nothing, which is probably a bad start. The computer first shows Windows trying to find & install the correct driver for the device. It searches for the driver for a while, then can't find it. Then it says that Windows cannot recognize the new hardware. iTunes does not recognize the iPod, either. Like I said earlier, I checked the Windows Compatability Center to see if they had a driver for the 7G that I could download but it is not available. They had a feature where you could suggest hardware/software that is not compatabile so I did that for the 7G.

Try removing and re-installing all Apple related software using the exact instructions in this Apple support document.

Ok well that seems a little far. I thank you for your advice and appreciate your help, but I am going to wait for Windows Compatability Center to get back to me and see if they will put out the new driver before I do anything like that. If they don't soon, I will try your idea. Thanks again for all your help and patience.

For anyone else who might have had this problem, the driver is now available.

Thanks for the information. I'm having the same issue. Could you tell me where I can download the driver from?
Currently Being ModeratedJan 22, 2013 9:37 PM (in response to outlawjanitor)
Yes, please. I'm having the same problem and would really appreciate it if you gave us the link to the driver download.
