    Hey guys, just got a new nano and put music on it. When I hold the middle button down to activate genius, the genius option doesn't come up. Anyone have any ideas?

    cheers

    Have you activated genius on iTunes yet? If you have, look through all the options on your iPod to see if Genius is disabled somehow. Otherwise, maybe you should just restore the iPod.

    If you have Genius turned on in iTunes then try syncing the Nano a few more times repeatedly disconnecting after each sync! An easier but time consuming option is to restore it but this doesnt always guarantee a working genius.....

    They don't have to be from iTunes, as long as they are on iTunes, and are tagged correctly, they should work.

    Genius works for me on songs bought from iTunes and songs not bought from iTunes.

    You need Genius enabled on iTunes, then disconnect your nano. Plug it back in and sync, then just for kicks hit the Sync button again.

    That should do it.
