    I have a 1st generation iPod nano, it's about 4.5 years old.
    Every time I plug it into iTunes I get the following message:
    I've formatted it several times through iTunes, each time I sync it there is an issue.
    Any idea's?

    google for the HP format utility (windows only)

    Format the ipod with that, it may take a while
