    Have you enabled disk usage in the iPod preferences? :)

    Before you plug it in, hold down the menu and center buttons simultaneously until it reboots.

    Then use as usual, see if that helps.

    And if that gets nowhere, try a restore using the latest iPod Software Updater. This will erase everything kept on the iPod though. :)

    It's in the iTunes preferences. Select the iPod pane and there should be a check box. Enabling this will mean you must eject the iPod manually each time. However, sometimes iTunes gets confused and thinks you're still transferring data so it won't let you. Usually works after a few attempts though. :)

    No, this is not true. The Nano (and the new full-size iPod) use Lithium-ion batteries, which don't suffer from the memory problems that old NiCad batteries did. For complete battery care instructions from Apple, check out:

    With your ipod connected. Open iTunes and go into Preferences. Select iPod tab and in there you will be able to select a folder to sync pictures from.

    Once again, go to the iPod preferences, and click the calendar tab, then u can check if you want ur iCal to synchronize.
    If u on a PC, i have no idea...
