Default My iPod won't synchronize with iTunes.

So I tried to sync' my iPod the other day and it turns out it only starts charging its battery. iTunes doesn't show it on it's left bar at all and Windows doesn't even seem to recognize it. I even tried plugging it to another computer here but it still doesn't work. I tried downgrading from version 8 to 7 to see if that would do, but it's all the same. It's a 2 Gb iPod Nano, if that helps any.

Default buy a Macololol

Has it synch'd before?
Do you plug the Nano in first and let it open iTunes, or do you have iTunes open first?

Porrrhaps you should remove and re-install iTunes to see if that does anything.

Yes, I've been able to synch' it before, but it has stopped for some reason. I've tried plugging it before and after iTunes runs but nothing happens. I've downgraded iTunes thinking that might do, but nothing happened either. The iPod runs fine, other than that.

Additionally, I forgot to mention it's a second generation Nano, if that helps any.

EDIT: The problem has been solved! If anyone happens to stumble upon the same problem or some similar failure, try pressing the Menu Button and the Center Button to make your iPod enter some sort of Failsafe Mode (I don't know if that's the proper term, sorry). You'll see the Apple logo on the screen. Then, press and hold the Play/Pause button along the Center Button to enter Disk Mode. This way, it's almost guaranteed to be recognized and from there, you can go on and format the unit and resynch' the bastard to its former glory. Technology's my bitch.
