Downloading Music and Podcasts to iPod nano
After your music is imported and organized in iTunes, you can easily download it to
iPod nano.
To set how music is downloaded from your computer to your iPod nano, you connect
iPod nano to your computer, and then use the controls in iTunes to change iPod nano
settings.
You can set iTunes to download music to your iPod nano in three ways:
 Automatically update all songs and playlists: When you connect iPod nano, it is
automatically updated to match the songs and other items in the iTunes library. Any
other songs on iPod nano are deleted.
 Automatically update selected playlists: When you connect iPod nano, it is
automatically updated to match the songs in playlists you select in iTunes.
 Manually update iPod nano: When you connect iPod nano, you can drag songs and
playlists individually to iPod nano, and delete songs and playlists individually from
iPod nano. Using this option, you can download songs from more than one
computer without erasing songs from iPod nano. When you manage songs yourself,
you must manually eject iPod nano from iTunes before you can disconnect it.
Updating iPod nano Automatically
By default, iPod nano is set to update automatically with all songs and playlists when
you connect it to your computer. This is the simplest way to download music to your
iPod nano. You just connect iPod nano to your computer, let it add songs, audiobooks,
and other items automatically, and then disconnect it and go. If you added any songs
to iTunes since the last time you connected iPod nano, they are downloaded to iPod
nano. If you deleted songs from iTunes, they are deleted from iPod nano.
20
Chapter 2 Music Features
To download songs to iPod nano:
m Simply connect iPod nano to your computer. If iPod nano is set to update
automatically, the download begins.

want to transfer songs automatically. If you accept, all songs, audiobooks, and other
items are deleted from iPod nano and replaced with the songs and other items from
that computer. If you don’t accept, you can still download songs to iPod nano manually
without deleting any of the songs already on iPod nano.
While music is being downloaded from your computer to iPod nano, the iTunes status
window shows progress, and the iPod nano icon in the Source list flashes red.
When the download is complete, a message in iTunes says “iPod update is complete.”
If you set iTunes to download music manually, you can reset it later to update iPod
nano automatically. For more information, see “Updating iPod nano Manually” on
page 22.

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:
 Limit the amount of time you use earbuds or headphones at high volume.
 Avoid turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings.
 Turn the volume down if you can't hear people speaking near you.
For information about setting a maximum volume limit on iPod nano, see “Setting the
Maximum Volume Limit” on page 26.

Most problems with iPod nano can be solved quickly by
following the advice in this chapter.
Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, Restore
Remember these five basic suggestions if you have a problem with your iPod nano. If
one of the following doesn’t help, read on for solutions to specific problems.
 Reset your iPod nano. See “General Suggestions,” below.
 Retry with a different USB port if you cannot see iPod nano in iTunes.
 Restart your computer and make sure you have the latest software updates
installed.
 Reinstall iPod and iTunes software from the latest versions on the web.
 Restore your iPod nano. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page 50.
General Suggestions
Most problems with iPod nano can be solved by resetting it.
To reset iPod nano:
1 Toggle the Hold switch on and off (set it to Hold, and then turn it off again).
2 Press and hold the Center and Menu buttons for at least 6 seconds, until the
Apple logo appears.
If your iPod nano won’t turn on or respond
 Make sure the Hold switch is off.
 If that doesn’t work, connect iPod nano to your computer’s USB or FireWire port. Your
iPod nano battery might need to be recharged.
 If that doesn’t work, your iPod nano might need to be reset.
 If that doesn’t work, you might need to restore iPod nano software. See “Updating
and Restoring iPod Software” on page 50.
45
If you want to disconnect iPod nano, but you see the message “Do not disconnect”
 If iPod nano is downloading music, wait for the download to complete.
 Select iPod nano in the iTunes Source list and click the Eject button.
 If iPod nano disappears from the iTunes Source list, but you still see the “Do not
disconnect” message on the iPod nano screen, disconnect iPod nano.
 If iPod nano doesn’t disappear from the iTunes Source list, drag the iPod nano icon
from the desktop to the Trash (if you’re using a Mac) or click the Safely Remove
Hardware icon in the system tray and select your iPod nano (if you’re using a
Windows PC). If you still see the “Do not disconnect” message, restart your computer
and eject iPod nano again.
If your iPod nano isn’t playing music
 Make sure the Hold switch is off.
 Make sure the headphones connector is pushed in all the way.
 Make sure the volume is adjusted properly. If you see a lock to the right of the
volume bar, a maximum volume limit has been set for your iPod nano. You can
change or remove it by using Settings > Volume Limit. See “Setting the Maximum
Volume Limit” on page 26.
 Try pressing the Play/Pause button. Your iPod nano might be paused.
 Make sure you are using iTunes 6.0.2 or later (included on the iPod nano CD or go to
www.apple.com/itunes). Songs purchased from the iTunes Music Store using earlier
versions of iTunes won’t play on iPod nano until you upgrade iTunes and download
the songs.
 If you’re using the iPod nano Dock, make sure the iPod nano is seated firmly in the
Dock and make sure all cables are connected properly.
 If you are using the Dock Line Out port, make sure your external speakers or stereo
are turned on and working properly.
If you connect iPod nano to your computer and nothing happens
 Make sure you have installed the software from the iPod CD.
 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 a USB 2.0 card. For more information, go to
www.apple.com/ipodstore.
To charge the battery, you must connect iPod nano to a high-power USB or FireWire
port on your computer. Connecting iPod nano to a USB port on your keyboard will
not charge the battery. You can connect iPod nano to a FireWire port using the
optional iPod Dock Connector to FireWire Cable for charging the iPod nano only.
Transferring information to iPod nano using FireWire is not supported.
 Your iPod nano might need to be reset (see page 45).
46
Chapter 5 Tips and Troubleshooting
 If you’re connecting iPod nano to a portable or laptop computer using the iPod Dock
Connector to USB 2.0 Cable, connect the computer to a power outlet before
connecting iPod nano.
 Make sure you have the required computer and software. See “If you want to doublecheck the system requirements” on page 48.
 Check the cable connections. Unplug the cable at both ends and make sure no
foreign objects are in the USB ports. Then plug the cable back in securely. Make sure
the connectors on the cables are oriented correctly. They can be inserted only one
way.
 Try restarting your computer.
 If none of the previous suggestions solves your problem, you might need to restore
iPod software. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page 50.
Note: You can only use an iPod Dock Connector to FireWire Cable for charging and not
for downloading songs and other audio files to iPod nano.
If you see a folder with an exclamation point on the iPod nano display
 iPod nano might need to be reset (see page 45).
 If that doesn’t work, your iPod nano battery might need to be recharged. Connect
iPod nano to your computer and let the battery recharge. If you still see the folder,
reset iPod nano again.
 If that doesn’t work, you might need to update or restore iPod nano with the latest
software. Make sure you have installed the software from the iPod CD, or go to
www.apple.com/ipod to get the latest software. Follow the instructions on page 50
to update or restore the iPod software.
If you can’t download a song or other item to iPod nano
The song might have been encoded 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:
 AAC (M4A, M4B, M4P) (up to 320 Kbps)
 Apple Lossless (a high-quality compressed format)
 MP3 (up to 320 Kbps)
 MP3 Variable Bit Rate (VBR)
 WAV
Chapter 5 Tips and Troubleshooting
47
 AA (audible.com spoken word, formats 2, 3, and 4)
 AIFF
A song encoded using Apple Lossless format has full CD-quality sound, but takes up
only about half the amount of 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 is converted to AAC format by default.
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 does not support WMA, MPEG Layer 1, MPEG Layer 2 audio files, or
audible.com format 1.
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 and Music Store Help.
If you accidentally set iPod nano to use a language you don’t understand
You can reset the language.
1 Press and hold Menu until the main menu appears.
2 Choose the fifth menu item (Settings).
3 Choose the last menu item (Reset All Settings).
4 Choose the second menu item (Reset) and select a language.
Other iPod nano settings, such as song repeat, are also reset.
Note: If you added or removed items from the iPod nano main menu (see “Adding or
Removing Items From the Main Menu” on page 8), the Settings menu item might be in
a different place. If you can’t find the Reset All Settings menu item, you can restore your
iPod nano to its original state and choose a language you understand. See “Updating
and Restoring iPod Software” on page 50.
If you connect iPod nano to a camera connector and nothing happens
You must first import photos from your camera to your computer and then download
the photos to iPod nano. You can’t connect a camera directly to iPod nano to download
photos.
Some other third-party accessories cannot connect directly to iPod nano. See
www.apple.com/support/ipod for more information.
If you want to double-check the system requirements
To use iPod nano, you must have:
 One of the following computer configurations:
 A Macintosh with USB port (USB 2.0 recommended)
 A Windows PC with USB port or a USB card installed (USB 2.0 recommended)
48
Chapter 5 Tips and Troubleshooting
 One of the following operating systems: Mac OS X v10.3.9 or later, Windows 2000
with Service Pack 4 or later, or Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 2
or later
 iTunes 6.0.2 or later (iTunes is included on the iPod CD)
 iPod software (included on the iPod CD)
If your Windows PC doesn’t have a high-power USB port, you can purchase and install a
USB 2.0 card. For more information, go to www.apple.com/ipodstore.
High-power USB 2.0 port
Note: You can connect iPod nano to a FireWire port (IEEE1394) for charging but not for
transferring music and other audio files.
6-pin FireWire 400 port
(IEEE 1394)
In addition, on the Macintosh, iPhoto 4.0.3 or later is recommended for downloading
photos and albums to iPod nano. This software is optional. iPhoto might already be
installed on your Mac. Check the Applications folder. If you have iPhoto 4 you can
update it by choosing Apple () > Software Update.
On a Windows PC, iPod nano can import photo collections automatically from Adobe
Photoshop Album 2.0 or later, and Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 or later, available at
www.adobe.com. This software is optional.
On both Macintosh and Windows PC, iPod nano can import digital photos from folders
on your computer’s hard disk.
If you want to use your iPod nano with a Mac and a Windows PC
If you are using your iPod nano with a Mac and you want to use it with a Windows PC
(or vice versa), you must restore the iPod software for use with the other computer
using iPod Updater (see “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” below). Restoring the
iPod software erases all data from iPod nano, including all songs.
You cannot switch from using iPod nano with a Mac to using it with a Windows PC (or
vice versa) without erasing all data on iPod nano.
Chapter 5 Tips and Troubleshooting
49
If you lock your iPod nano screen and can’t unlock it
Normally, if you can connect your iPod nano to the computer it is authorized to work
with, your iPod nano automatically unlocks. If the computer authorized to work with
your iPod nano is unavailable, you can connect iPod nano to another computer and
use iPod Updater to restore your iPod software. See the next section for more
information.
If you want to change the screen lock combination and you can’t remember the
current combination, you must restore the iPod software, and then set a new
combination.
Updating and Restoring iPod Software
You can use iPod Updater to update or restore your iPod software. Apple periodically
updates iPod software to improve performance or add features. It is recommended that
you update your iPod nano to use the latest software. You can also restore the software,
which puts iPod nano back in its original state.
 If you choose to update, the software is updated, but your settings and songs are not
affected.
 If you choose to restore, all data is erased from your iPod nano, including songs, files,
contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All iPod nano settings are
restored to their original state.
To update or restore iPod nano with the latest software:
1 Go to www.apple.com/support/ipod and download the latest iPod Update. The update
has the latest software for all models of iPod.
2 Double-click the software installation file and follow the onscreen instructions to install
the iPod update.
3 Connect iPod nano to your computer and open iTunes. The iPod Updater application
opens.
If you’re using a Windows PC and the iPod Updater application doesn’t open
automatically, you can find the updater by choosing Start > All Programs > iPod.
4 Follow the onscreen instructions to update or restore iPod software.
If you use the iPod Updater application and it doesn’t recognize that iPod nano is
connected to your computer, reset iPod nano (see page 45).
If you want to restore iPod software and you don’t have an Internet connection, you
can use the iPod Updater application that was installed on your computer when you
installed the software from the iPod CD.
50
Chapter 5 Tips and Troubleshooting
To restore iPod software using the iPod Updater application that came on your
iPod CD:
 If you have a Mac, you can find the iPod Updater application in Applications/Utilities/
iPod Software Updater.
 If you have a Windows PC, you can find the iPod Updater application by choosing
Start > All Programs > iPod.
Note: The date of the updater is in the filename, so, if you have more than one version,
make sure to use the latest one.

Learn about cleaning your iPod nano and handling it
safely.
Setup Safety Instructions
When setting up and using your iPod nano, remember the following:
 Keep these instructions handy for reference by you and others.
 Follow all instructions and warnings about your iPod nano.
Warning: Electrical equipment can be hazardous if misused. Operation of this
product, or similar products, must always be supervised by an adult. Do not allow
children access to the interior of any electrical product and do not permit them to
handle any cables.
General Safety, Cleaning, and Handling Guidelines
To
Do This
Handle your iPod nano safely
Be careful not to drop your iPod nano. If you are concerned about
scratching, you can use the included case or one of the many cases
available separately.
Warning: Your iPod nano contains sensitive components including
a rechargeable battery. Prevent damage by making sure you do not
drop, bend, or crush your iPod nano.
Use headphones safely
52
Use of headphones while operating a vehicle is not recommended
and is illegal in some areas. Be careful and attentive while driving.
Stop listening to your iPod nano if you find it disruptive or
distracting while operating any type of vehicle or performing any
other activity that requires your full attention.
To
Do This
Avoid hearing damage
Set your iPod nano volume to a safe level. If you experience ringing
in your ears, reduce the volume or discontinue use of your iPod
nano. For information on how to set a maximum volume limit on
iPod nano, see “Setting the Maximum Volume Limit” on page 26.
Warning: Permanent hearing loss may occur if earbuds or
headphones are used at high volume. 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:
 Limit the amount of time you use earbuds or headphones at
high volume.
 Avoid turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings.
 Turn the volume down if you can't hear people speaking
near you.
Use connectors and ports
properly
Never force a connector into a port. If the connector and port do
not join with reasonable ease, they probably don’t match. Make
sure that the connector matches the port and that you have
positioned the connector correctly in relation to the port.
Reduce the chance of shock or
injury
Keep your iPod nano away from sources of liquids, such as rain,
drinks, or washbasins. Take care not to spill any food or liquid on
your iPod nano. In case of a spill, unplug your iPod nano before
cleaning up. After a spill, you might need to send your equipment
to an authorized service provider.
Warning: Do not use your iPod nano in or near water or wet
locations.
Repair your iPod nano
For service, see “Learning More, Service, and Support” on page 54.
Warning: Do not make repairs yourself. Do not attempt to open
your iPod nano, disassemble it, or remove the battery. You run the
risk of electric shock and voiding the limited warranty. No userserviceable parts are inside.
Keep the outside of your iPod
nano clean
Make sure your iPod nano is unplugged. Use a damp, soft, lint-free
cloth. Avoid getting moisture in openings. Don’t use aerosol sprays,
solvents, alcohol, or abrasives.
Keep your iPod nano within
acceptable temperatures
Operate your iPod nano in a place where the temperature is always
between 0º and 35º C (32º to 95º F). iPod nano play time might
temporarily shorten in low-temperature conditions.
Store your iPod nano in a place where the temperature is always
between –20º and 45º C (–4º to 113º F). Don’t leave iPod nano in
your car, because temperatures in parked cars can exceed this
range.
Note: When you’re using your iPod nano or charging the battery,
it is normal for the bottom of the case to get warm. The bottom of
the iPod nano case functions as a cooling surface that transfers
heat from inside the unit to the cooler air outside.
