Try it on another USB port. We just found this tonight and it's probably true on PC's: USB Flash Drive only recognized on one specific port?

We've seen this a lot when using low quality USB cables. Try a high end one.

I had not considered the cable till now.

Just tried the spare generic cable, no joy.

The cable that i have been using is a genuine Apple.

My families other i pod's happily sync via the apple i pod cable.

Thank you all for esteemed advise on this little iPod.

I have decided to relegate this NANO to the parts bin so its remaining good components will be salvaged to restore a friends identical unit.
