Hello, I just downloaded iTunes 7 and tried to plug my nano in. My Nano now charges but is not registering in iTunes. Any tips?

Also, everytime my iPod dies I have to reset it. It is a huge pain in the butt. Is this normal?

    I'm having the same issue. Everything was okay, until i downloaded the new i tunes. Now when i connect my nano to the computer it says not to remove, but it does not pop up in the device section in I tunes. When i go into My Computer, it doesn't show up as well. It only shows up on the device manager, and it has a small yellow exclamation sign, but it is not like the examples that are shown (upset ipod with the ! sign, or a folder with the ! sign) The help website stinks and is of no use what so ever. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi dpinho!

    How do I install an older version of i tunes?

    If you don't have your iPod installation CD with you, or you simply want to download an older version from online, then go here to download iTunes 6.0.5 (the previous version from iTunes 7) -> iTunes 6.0.5 download

    I am also having this problem. I like having Itunes 7.0, much more helpful for downloading things (moving them up and down the queue and such) but the most important thing is that I cannot get my Ipod to pop up in Itunes. It used to be that it would show at all, I did some of the fixes on the forum to try to get it to work and now when I plug it in, it will charge and even have Itunes pop up, but it will still not register the Nano as being there.

    It's been this way for a couple weeks now, are there no solutions for this?

    I tried to install an earlier version of Itunes because I'm running version 1.0.1 on my nano. I uninstalled itunes 7 and installed version 6.0.5. However, when I tried to run it, it said that my itunes library could not be accessed because it was created under a newer version of itunes. So I'm back to square one. Can someone please help? This is getting ridiculous.

    Thanks for responding so quickly. I uninstalled the itunes 7 and downloaded the itunes 6 through that link you gave me, but now when i click on the icon, it says that the itunes library has some kind of error due to itunes 7. Did you do anything differently when you reinstalled it? Also, do you know of a quick way to contact apple to have someone fix this? Again, thatnks for all your help
