Supported Audio File Formats
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
 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 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. Then follow the instructions on
page 48 to update or restore the iPod software.
If you connect iPod nano to a USB port and it doesn’t work correctly
 A USB 2.0 port is recommended to connect iPod nano. USB 1.1 is significantly slower
than USB 2.0 and is not recommended. If your Windows PC doesn’t have a USB 2.0
port, you can purchase and install a Windows-certified USB 2.0 card and install it. For
more information, go to www.apple.com/ipod.
 To charge the battery, you must connect iPod nano to a high-power USB 2.0 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.
 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.

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 accidentally set iPod nano to use a language you don’t understand
You can reset the language.
1 Press Menu repeatedly until the main menu appears.
2 Choose Settings > Reset All Settings.
3 Choose Reset and select a language.
Other iPod nano settings, such as song repeat, are also reset.
Note: If you don’t understand the language and can’t reset all your settings, you can
restore your iPod nano to its original state. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software”
on page 47.
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 USB card (USB 2.0 recommended)
If your Windows PC doesn’t have a high-power USB 2.0 port, you can purchase and install
a USB 2.0 card. For more information on cables and compatible USB cards, go to
www.apple.com/ipod. You can connect iPod nano to a FireWire port for charging but
not for transferring music and other audio files.
High-power USB 2.0 port

 One of the following operating systems: Mac OS X v10.3.4 or later, Windows 2000
with Service Pack 4 or later, or Windows XP Home or Professional with Service Pack 2
or later
 iTunes 4.9 or later (iTunes is included on the iPod CD)
 iPod software (included on the iPod CD)

Chapter 5 Tips and Troubleshooting
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 1.0 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.
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.
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.
Chapter 5 Tips and Troubleshooting
47
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 43).
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.
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.

Safety and Cleaning
6
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.
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
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.
49
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.
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 drinks
or washbasins. Protect your iPod nano from rain or other moisture.
Take care not to spill any food or liquid on iPod nano. In case of a
spill, unplug iPod nano before cleaning up. You might need to send
your equipment to Apple for service.
Warning: Do not use your iPod nano in or near water or wet
locations.
Clean the outside of your iPod
nano
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.
Repair your iPod nano
For service, see “Learning More, Service, and Support” on page 51.
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.
Use your iPod nano in
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.
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.
Store your iPod nano safely
50
Chapter 6 Safety and Cleaning
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.

interference by using one or more of the following
measures:
 Turn the television or radio antenna until the
interference stops.
 Move the computer to one side or the other of the
television or radio.
 Move the computer farther away from the
television or radio.
 Plug the computer in to an outlet that is on a
different circuit from the television or radio. (That
is, make certain the computer and the television 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/television technician
for additional suggestions.
Important: Changes or modifications to this product
not authorized by Apple Computer, Inc. could void
the EMC compliance and negate your authority to
