I'm trying to figure out if an ipod nano (A1137) I just found in my desk is still usable.

It charges fine, itunes opens when I plug it into a Mac but I seem to have problems transferring a music file to it.

The file shows up as an mp3 if I look at the ipod folder on the Mac but it's not there if I look on the ipod display.

The ipod nano icon on the desktop has in the display of the icon, a red circle with a diagonal red line running from top left to bottom right at about a 45 degree angle.

I assume that has something to do with my problem.

I usually use neither itunes nor ipods so I don't know what the problem is and how to fix it.
Umpteen google searches got me nowhere.

Any ipod experts who can point me in the right direction?

Thanks John,

I did the restore - seems to have worked since now it shows my name as the owner (I restored it on my Mac).

But the ipod icon on the desktop still shows the red circle with a line through it as before - it shows the same symbol on the ipod except that it's flashing.
So maybe it's just still charging.

But when I double click on the ipod icon on the desktop, the folder that opens only has three folders in it - calendars, contacts and Notes.
I would have expected to see an empty music folder....or is it OK the way it is and the music folder only get created when I drop in a song from itunes?

The songs I want to add are in iTunes, I just thought the red circle needs to disappear first.

I'm going to try to add a song from my iTunes to the ipod tomorrow.
