iPod Nano wont sync to itunes

I recieved this iPod nano 4th generation as gift. My friend said she bought them from Hong Kong. But I can not get this iPod to sync songs from my itunes. The itunes does not even reconize that the iPod nano is even there. Or it will act like it has synced the song and when you turn on iPod nano it says empty disc

well, there is one tiny thing that comes in my mind when ir read "iPod nano" and "hong kong" - it's most likely not even an iPod.

does the computer shows the "iPod" when you connect it?

how does the folder structure looks like?

Yea this sounds like it's a cheap knock-off. Turn you'r "iPod" over and read the serial number and put it into the apple site to see if the serial number (if there even is one) is valid in the apple database.

Input the serial number into the applecare warranty page on the Apple site below, if the ipod is a knock-off then the serial number wouldn't be valid in the database.

ihave one too i just got. and it syncs to the computer like charges but when you bring up itunes it wont connect. it isnt a valid serial number either. but i mean to be honest it still should work. its made in china and im sure if people buy them and use them there then they should work. why shouldnt it?

the reason for that is because they are look alikes, called Chipod. They do work as an MP3 player but are not usable with itunes. Do a Google search on it. There is a way to identify those by the firmware ver.number.
