Hi there,

 

A few years ago I purchased an iPod Nano, I'm not sure whether it is 4th or 5th generation. I customized it on Windows and lost it when I moved. I just found it today and wanted to customize it on my new MacBook Pro (old Windows computer is dead long ago).

 

But iTunes won't let me delete selected photos on my iPod, and when I wanted to sync over new music, it informed me that all my other music will be deleted!

 

Also, on my Apple Account, it somehow doesn't show on my list of registered products. I KNOW I registered it when I bought it. I tried to add it to the list, and it wanted to know the exact date I bought it. I don't remember, and it won't let me add my iPod to my list of products.

 

What can I do about all this? I do not want to lose precious data in the process of deleting the ones I don't need. And I want Apple to know this product is mine, yet it won't let me add it to the list.

 

Can someone help me please?

 

Thank you!

It is out of warranty so the registration is really not an issue.

 

Your Nano can only be linked to one library. If you used the backup from your old PC to move your iTunes folder to the new laptop you would be able to do what you want.

 

You will need to use 3rd party software to move what is on your Nano to your computer. You can try Senuti.

    Thank you deggie. I'll have a look at Senuti!

     

    And I hope Apple has changed the way Nanos work. It's a little silly to be stuck with one computer/library. My old one completely died and I couldn't retrieve any data, so 3rd party software to the rescue.

    You can change to manually managing your music and use multiple computers.

    I found one called Floola which is free, it works great! Got it all now
