I have read numerous posts online about the same problem but can't seem to sort mine out. I've tried changing power leads, restoring back till an older version of itunes, resetting the ipod, restarting my computer and tried every USB port in sight but still nothing.
I have plugged a friends ipod touch into my computer and it connects and appears in itunes fine, but with mine it wont stay connected long enough for me to try and restore anything with it on itunes its literally a 1 second interval between connected and ejecting. I thought maybe it could be the connection terminal on the ipod but i have had it connected to a wall charger and xbox with it staying connected with no problems.
I am running windows vista on the computer and the nano was previously synced to a different itunes could this be the problem and if so how do I go about fixing it??
Thanks

I too am having this same issue. I connect my iPod nano (6th gen), and it appears for anywhere between 1 to 10 seconds and then automatically ejects.
I'm running a macbook pro with OS X 10.6.8 and the most up to date version of iTunes. The strange thing is that the nano works fine on my old macbook from 2007; which also has the most up to date iTunes but is running OS X 10.5. Another thing is that my iPod touch works just perfectly on my MacBook Pro.
I have read up on a lot of forums, and have found little help for those who are running into this problem on a Mac. The majority of fixes are for PC. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
