Syncing the first time
iTunes is the free software application you use to sync music, audiobooks, podcasts, photos,
and iTunes U collections between your computer and iPod nano, and to send workouts to the
Nike+ website.
If you don’t already have content in iTunes, you can preview and download content from the
iTunes Store (available in selected countries) to iTunes on your computer. To learn about iTunes
and the iTunes Store, open iTunes and choose Help > iTunes Help.
Set up iTunes syncing the first time:
1 Connect iPod nano to your computer, and open iTunes.
2 Enter a name for iPod nano.
You enter a name the first time you connect iPod nano. This name appears in the device list on
the left side of the iTunes window, after you enter it.
3 Select options for syncing music and photos automatically.
If you need help choosing options, choose Help > iTunes Help in the menu bar.
4 Select the language you want to use on iPod nano from the pop-up menu.
You only need to do this the first time, or when you restore iPod nano to its factory settings.
5 Click Done.
If you selected to sync songs or photos automatically, syncing begins immediately.
Syncing automatically or manually
There are two ways to add content to iPod nano:
ÂÂ Automatic syncing: When you connect iPod nano to your computer, iPod nano is automatically
updated to match the items in your iTunes library. You can sync iPod nano automatically with
only one computer at a time.
ÂÂ Manually managing iPod nano: When you connect iPod nano, you can drag individual items
to iPod nano and delete individual items from iPod nano. You can add songs from more than
one computer without erasing songs from iPod nano. When you manage music yourself,
you must always eject iPod nano from iTunes before you disconnect it (see “Connecting and
disconnecting iPod nano” on page 12).
Automatic syncing
iPod nano normally syncs whenever you connect it to iTunes.
While music is being synced from your computer to iPod nano, the iTunes status window shows
progress, and you see a sync icon next to the iPod nano icon in the device list. When the update
is done, a message in iTunes says “iPod update is complete,” and a bar at the bottom of the iTunes
window displays how much disk space is used by different types of content.
17
Important: The first time you connect iPod nano to a computer that it’s not synced with, a
message asks if you want to sync songs automatically. If you accept, all songs, audiobooks,
and other content are erased from iPod nano and replaced with songs and other items from
that computer.
You can prevent iPod nano from syncing when you connect it to a computer other than the one
you usually sync with.
Turn off automatic syncing for iPod nano:
mm In the iTunes Summary tab, deselect “Open iTunes when this iPod is connected,” and then
click Apply.
If you turn off automatic syncing, you can still sync by clicking the Sync button.
Managing iPod nano manually
If you manage iPod nano manually, you can add and remove individual songs and other content.
You can also add content from multiple computers to iPod nano without erasing items already on
iPod nano.
Setting iPod nano to manually manage music turns off the automatic sync options in the Music,
Podcasts, iTunes U, and Photos panes. You can’t manually manage some and automatically sync
others at the same time.
Note: Genius Mixes don’t work if you manually manage content. You can still manually sync
Genius playlists to iPod nano, and create Genius playlists on the iPod after a manual sync of
Genius content. See “Playing Genius Mixes” on page 27.
Set iTunes to manage content manually:
1 In iTunes Preferences, click Devices, and then select “Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from
syncing automatically.”
2 In iTunes, select iPod nano in the device list and click the Summary tab.
3 In the Options section, select “Manually manage music.”
4 Click Apply.
When you manually manage content on iPod nano, you must always eject iPod nano from iTunes
before you disconnect it. See “Eject iPod nano:” on page 13.
Add a song or other item manually:
1 In iTunes, click Music or another item below Library on the left side of the iTunes window.
2 Drag a song or other item to iPod nano in the device list.
Remove a song or other item from iPod nano:
1 In iTunes, select iPod nano in the device list.
2 Select a song or other item on iPod nano, then press the Delete or Backspace key on your keyboard.

You can reset iPod nano to sync automatically at any time.
Reset iTunes to sync automatically:
1 In iTunes, select iPod nano in the device list and click the Summary tab.
2 Deselect “Manually manage music.”
3 Select the Music and Podcasts tabs, and select your sync options.
4 Click Apply. The update begins automatically.

Using Apple earphones
WARNING: Permanent hearing loss may occur if the earbuds or headphones are used at high
volume. Use only compatible earbuds or headphones with iPod nano. Turn on the audio
and check the volume before inserting anything in your ear. You can adapt over time to a
higher volume of sound that may sound normal but can be damaging to your hearing. If you
experience ringing in your ears or muffled speech, stop listening and have your hearing checked.
The louder the volume, the less time is required before your hearing could be affected. Hearing
experts suggest that to protect your hearing:
ÂÂ Limit the amount of time you use earbuds or headphones at high volume.
ÂÂ Avoid turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings.
ÂÂ Turn the volume down if you can’t hear people speaking near you.
For information about setting a maximum volume limit on iPod, see “Setting the maximum
volume limit” on page 24.
The Apple earphones that came with your iPod nano connect to the earphone port on the
bottom of iPod nano. Place the earbuds in your ears as shown.
The earphone
cord is adjustable.
If you have the Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic or the In-Ear Headphones with Remote
and Mic, you can also navigate playlists. For information, see the documentation for those
accessories, or “Using the Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic” on page 48.

mm First, make sure iPod nano is charged. Then press the Sleep/Wake button and the Volume Down
button for 6 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If iPod nano won’t turn on or respond
mm The iPod nano battery might need to be recharged. Connect iPod nano to a USB 2.0 port on your
computer or to an Apple USB Power Adapter and let the battery recharge. Look for the lightning
bolt icon on the iPod nano screen to verify that iPod nano is receiving a charge.
Note: The USB port on most keyboards doesn’t provide enough power to charge iPod nano.
Connect iPod nano to a USB 2.0 port on your computer.
mm Try the 5 Rs, one by one, until iPod nano responds.
If you want to disconnect iPod nano, but you see the message “Connected” or “Sync in
Progress”
mm If iPod nano is syncing music, wait for it to finish.
mm Select iPod nano in the iTunes device list and click the Eject (C) button.
mm If iPod nano disappears from the device list in iTunes, but you still see the “Connected” or “Sync in
Progress” message on the iPod nano screen, disconnect iPod nano.
52
mm If iPod nano doesn’t disappear from the device list in iTunes, drag the iPod nano icon from the
desktop to the Trash if you’re using a Mac. If you’re using a Windows PC, eject the device in
My Computer or click the Safely Remove Hardware icon in the system tray and select iPod nano.
If you still see the “Connected” or “Sync in Progress” message, restart your computer and eject
iPod nano again.
If iPod nano isn’t playing music
mm Make sure the earphone or headphone connector is pushed in all the way. To see an illustration,
go to support.apple.com/kb/ts3700.
mm Make sure the volume is adjusted properly. A maximum volume limit might be set. You can
change or remove it in Settings. See “Setting the maximum volume limit” on page 24.
mm Make sure you’re using iTunes 10.0 or later (available at www.itunes.com/downloads). Songs
purchased from the iTunes Store using earlier versions of iTunes won’t play on iPod nano until
you upgrade iTunes.
mm If you’re using the Apple Universal Dock, make sure iPod nano is seated firmly in the dock and
make sure all cables are connected properly.
If you connect iPod nano to your computer and nothing happens
mm Make sure you have installed the latest iTunes software from www.itunes.com/downloads.
mm Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer.
Note: A USB 2.0 port is recommended to connect iPod nano. USB 1.1 is significantly slower than
USB 2.0. If you have a Windows PC that doesn’t have a USB 2.0 port, in some cases you can
purchase and install a USB 2.0 card.
mm iPod nano might need to be reset (see page 52).
mm If you’re connecting iPod nano to a portable computer using the Apple Dock Connector to
USB Cable, connect the computer to a power outlet before connecting iPod nano.
mm Make sure you have the required computer and software. See “If you want to check the system
requirements” on page 55.

objects are in the USB ports. Then reconnect the cable. Make sure the connectors on the cables
are oriented correctly. They can be inserted only one way.
mm Try restarting your computer.
mm If none of the previous suggestions solves your problems, you might need to restore iPod nano
software. See “Updating and restoring iPod software” on page 56.
If music stops when the iPod nano screen turns off
mm Make sure the earphone port is free of debris.
mm Make sure the earphone or headphone connector is pushed in all the way. To see an illustration,
go to support.apple.com/kb/ts3700.
If iPod nano displays a “Connect to Power” message
mm This message may appear if iPod nano is exceptionally low on power and the battery needs to be
charged before iPod nano can communicate with your computer. To charge the battery, connect
iPod nano to a USB 2.0 port on your computer.
Leave iPod nano connected to your computer until the message disappears and iPod nano
appears in iTunes or the Finder. Depending on how depleted the battery is, you may need to
charge iPod nano for up to 30 minutes before it will start up.
To charge iPod nano more quickly, use the optional Apple USB Power Adapter.
Chapter 11    Tips and Troubleshooting
53
If iPod nano displays a “Use iTunes to restore” message
mm Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes on your computer (download it from
www.itunes.com/downloads).
mm Connect iPod nano to your computer. When iTunes opens, follow the onscreen prompts to
restore iPod nano.
mm If restoring iPod nano doesn’t solve the problem, iPod nano may need to be repaired. You can
arrange for service at the iPod Service & Support website at www.apple.com/support/ipod.
If you can’t add a song or other item to iPod nano
mm The song may be in a format that iPod nano doesn’t support. The following audio file formats are
supported by iPod nano. These include formats for audiobooks and podcasting:
ÂÂ AAC (M4A, M4B, M4P, up to 320 Kbps)
ÂÂ Apple Lossless (a high-quality compressed format)
ÂÂ MP3 (up to 320 Kbps)
ÂÂ MP3 Variable Bit Rate (VBR)
ÂÂ WAV
ÂÂ AA (audible.com spoken word, formats 2, 3, and 4)
ÂÂ AIFF
A song encoded using Apple Lossless format has CD-quality sound, but takes up only about half
as much space as a song encoded using AIFF or WAV format. The same song encoded in AAC
or MP3 format takes up even less space. When you import music from a CD using iTunes, it’s
converted to AAC format by default.
If you have a song in iTunes that isn’t supported by iPod nano, you can convert it to a format
iPod nano supports. For more information, see iTunes Help.
Using iTunes for Windows, you can convert nonprotected WMA files to AAC or MP3 format. This
can be useful if you have a library of music encoded in WMA format.
iPod nano doesn’t support audible.com format 1, MPEG Layer 1, MPEG Layer 2, or WMA audio files.
If iPod nano displays a “Connect to iTunes to activate Genius” message
mm You haven’t turned on Genius in iTunes, or you haven’t synced iPod nano since you turned on
Genius in iTunes. See “Creating Genius playlists” on page 27.
If iPod nano displays a “Genius is not available for the selected song” message
mm Genius is on but is unable to make a Genius playlist using the selected song. New songs are
regularly added to the iTunes Store Genius database, so try again soon.
If iPod nano can’t receive a radio signal

mm VoiceOver may be turned on, and you must use VoiceOver gestures to turn it off (see “ Turn off
VoiceOver on iPod nano using VoiceOver gestures:” on page 50).
If iPod nano speaks the text on the screen
mm VoiceOver may be turned on, and you must use VoiceOver gestures to turn it off (see “ Turn off
VoiceOver on iPod nano using VoiceOver gestures:” on page 50).
If you want to check the system requirements
To use iPod nano, you must have:
mm One of the following computer configurations:
ÂÂ A Mac with a USB 2.0 port
ÂÂ A Windows PC with a USB 2.0 port or a USB 2.0 card installed
mm One of the following operating systems:
ÂÂ Mac OS X v10.5.8 or later
ÂÂ Windows 7
ÂÂ Windows Vista
ÂÂ Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 3 or later

Applications folder.
On both Mac and Windows PC, iPod nano can sync digital photos from folders on your computer’s
hard disk.
If you want to use iPod nano with both a Mac and a Windows PC
mm If you’re using iPod nano with a Mac and you want to use it with a Windows PC, you must restore
the iPod software for use with the PC (see “Updating and restoring iPod software” on page 56).
Restoring the iPod software erases all data from iPod nano, including all songs.

WARNING: Failure to follow these safety instructions could result in fire, electric shock, or other
injury or damage.
Carrying and handling iPod nano iPod nano contains sensitive components. Do not drop,
disassemble, microwave, burn, paint, or insert foreign objects into iPod nano. Do not use
iPod nano if it has been damaged—for example, if iPod nano is cracked, punctured, or damaged
by water.
The front cover of iPod nano is made of glass. This glass could break if iPod nano is dropped
on a hard surface or is subjected to a substantial impact or is crushed, bent, or deformed. If the
glass chips or cracks, do not touch or attempt to remove the broken glass. Stop using iPod nano
until the glass is replaced by Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider. Glass cracked due
to misuse or abuse is not covered under the warranty. If you are concerned about scratching or
abrasion, use a case, sold separately.
Avoiding water and wet locations Do not expose iPod nano to water or rain, or handle
iPod nano near wet locations—for example, near washbasins or toilets. Take care not to spill any
food or liquid on iPod nano. In case iPod nano gets wet, unplug all cables, turn off iPod nano
before cleaning, and allow it to dry thoroughly before turning it on again. Do not attempt to dry
iPod nano with an external heat source, such as a microwave oven or hair dryer. Damage to
iPod nano caused by contact with liquid is not covered under the warranty.
Repairing or modifying iPod nano Never attempt to repair or modify iPod nano by yourself.
iPod nano does not contain any user-serviceable parts. Disassembling iPod nano may cause
damage that is not covered under the warranty. If iPod nano has been submerged in water,
punctured, or subjected to a severe fall, do not use it until you take it to an Apple Authorized
Service Provider. Service should only be provided by Apple or an Apple Authorized Service
Provider. For service information, go to www.apple.com/support/ipod.
Replacing the battery Do not attempt to replace the rechargeable battery in iPod nano
yourself. The rechargeable battery should be replaced only by Apple or an Apple Authorized
Service Provider. For more information about battery replacement services, go to
www.apple.com/batteries/replacements.html.

Keeping the outside of iPod nano clean Clean iPod nano immediately if it comes into contact
with any contaminants that may cause stains, for example, ink, dyes, makeup, dirt, food, oils,
and lotions. To clean iPod nano, unplug all cables and turn off iPod nano (press and hold the
Sleep/Wake button). Then use a soft, slightly damp, lint-free cloth. Avoid getting moisture in
openings. Don't use window cleaners, household cleaners, aerosol sprays, solvents, alcohol,
ammonia, or abrasives to clean iPod nano.
Charging iPod nano To charge iPod nano, use only the included Apple Dock Connector to USB
Cable with an Apple USB Power Adapter, or a high-power USB port on another device that is
compliant with the USB 2.0 standard; another Apple branded product or accessory designed to
work with iPod nano; or a third-party accessory certified to use Apple’s “Made for iPod” logo.
Read all safety instructions for any products and accessories before using with iPod nano. Apple
is not responsible for the operation of third-party accessories or their compliance with safety and
regulatory standards.
When you use the Apple USB Power Adapter to charge iPod nano, make sure that the power
adapter is fully assembled before you plug it into a power outlet. Then insert the Apple USB Power
Adapter firmly into the power outlet. Do not connect or disconnect the Apple USB Power Adapter
with wet hands.
The Apple USB Power Adapter may become warm during normal use. Always allow adequate
ventilation around the Apple USB Power Adapter and use care when handling. Unplug the
Apple USB Power Adapter if any of the following conditions exist:
ÂÂ The power cord or plug has become frayed or damaged.
ÂÂ The adapter is exposed to rain, liquids, or excessive moisture.
ÂÂ The adapter case has become damaged.
ÂÂ You suspect the adapter needs service or repair.
ÂÂ You want to clean the adapter.
Avoiding hearing damage Permanent hearing loss may occur if the earbuds or headphones are
used at high volume. Use only compatible earbuds or headphones with iPod nano. Turn on the
audio and check the volume before inserting anything in your ear. You can adapt over time to
a higher volume of sound that may sound normal but can be damaging to your hearing. If you
experience ringing in your ears or muffled speech, stop listening and have your hearing checked.
The louder the volume, the less time is required before your hearing could be affected. Hearing
experts suggest that to protect your hearing:
ÂÂ Limit the amount of time you use earbuds or headphones at high volume.
ÂÂ Avoid turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings.
ÂÂ Turn the volume down if you can’t hear people speaking near you.
For information about how to set a maximum volume limit on iPod nano, see “Setting the
maximum volume limit” on page 24.
Driving and riding safely Use of iPod nano while driving a vehicle or riding a bicycle may be
distracting. If you find using iPod nano disruptive or distracting while driving or riding, pull off the
road and park before using iPod nano. Use of iPod nano alone or with headphones (even if used
only in one ear) while driving or riding is not recommended and is illegal in some areas. Check
and obey the laws and regulations on the use of mobile devices like iPod nano in areas where you
drive or ride.
For vehicles equipped with an air bag An air bag inflates with great force. Do not store iPod nano
or any of its accessories in the area over the air bag or in the air bag deployment area.
Aircraft Use of iPod nano may be prohibited while traveling in aircraft.

Chapter 12    Safety and Cleaning
Exercising Before starting any exercise program, you should consult with a physician and have
a complete physical examination. Do a warmup or stretching exercise before beginning any
workout. Be careful and attentive while exercising. Slow down, if necessary, before adjusting your
device while running. Stop exercising immediately if you feel pain, or feel faint, dizzy, exhausted,
or short of breath. By exercising, you assume the risks inherent in physical exercise, including any
injury that may result from such activity.
Using connectors and ports Never force a connector into a port or apply excessive pressure to a
button because this may cause damage that is not covered under warranty. If the connector and
port don’t join with reasonable ease, they probably don’t match. Check for obstructions and make
sure that the connector matches the port and that you have positioned the connector correctly in
relation to the port.
Keeping iPod nano within acceptable temperatures iPod nano is designed to be operated in
temperatures between 0º and 35º C (32º to 95º F) and stored in temperatures between -20º and
45º C (-4º to 113º F). Low- or high-temperature conditions might temporarily shorten battery life or
cause iPod nano to temporarily stop working properly. Leaving iPod nano in a parked vehicle or
in direct sunlight can cause iPod nano to exceed these storage or operating temperature ranges.
Avoid dramatic changes in temperature or humidity when using iPod nano as condensation may
form on or within iPod nano.
When you’re using iPod nano or charging the battery, it is normal for iPod nano to get warm.
The exterior of iPod nano functions as a cooling surface that transfers heat from inside the unit to
the cooler air outside.
Potentially explosive atmospheres Turn off iPod nano when in any area with a potentially
explosive atmosphere. Do not charge iPod nano, and obey all signs and instructions. Sparks in
such areas could cause an explosion or fire resulting in serious injury or even death.
Areas with a potentially explosive atmosphere are often, but not always, marked clearly. Potential
areas may include: fueling areas (such as gas stations); fuel or chemical transfer or storage facilities;
vehicles using liquefied petroleum gas (such as propane or butane); areas where the air contains
chemicals or particles (such as grain, dust, or metal powders); and any other area where you
would normally be advised to turn off your vehicle engine.
Disposing of iPod nano properly For information about the proper disposal of iPod nano,
including other important regulatory compliance information, see “Disposal and Recycling
Information” on page 61.

If your computer system does cause interference to radio
or TV reception, try to correct the interference by using one
or more of the following measures:
ÂÂ Turn the TV or radio antenna until the interference stops.
ÂÂ Move the computer to one side or the other of the TV
or radio.
ÂÂ Move the computer farther away from the TV or radio.
ÂÂ Plug the computer in to an outlet that is on a different
circuit from the TV or radio. (That is, make certain the
computer and the TV or radio are on circuits controlled
by different circuit breakers or fuses.)
If necessary, consult an Apple Authorized Service Provider
or Apple. See the service and support information that
came with your Apple product. Or, consult an experienced
radio/TV technician for additional suggestions.
