    My brand new 4GB Nano will only let me put 200 songs on it. It should hold close to 1000. What gives?

    We need more information.

    What format and bitrate are your songs in?

    iPods work with physical Hard Drive limits, not by an actual number of songs. The 1000 song estimate is an estimate of each song being recorded at 128kbps mp3 and each song being 4 minutes long. What is most likely the case is that you have your songs encoded higher than that, which takes up more hard drive space than the estimate, giving you less songs at full
