Transferring Your iPod nano Videos to Your Computer

If you’ve got a Mac, you can use Apple’s iPhoto (it came with your Mac) to transfer the videos you shot with your iPod nano to your Mac. Plug your iPod nano into your computer, and in iTunes, click on it under Devices on the left side. On the Summary tab, make sure the checkbox for Enable Disk Use is turned on, then click on the Photos tab, make sure the Sync Photos From checkbox is turned on and that iPhoto is selected in the pop-up menu, and then turn on the Include Videos checkbox. When you click the Sync button at the bottom right, your videos are imported into iPhoto. Easy enough. If you have a Windows PC, after you connect your iPod nano to your computer, in iTunes, click on it under Devices on the left side, then turn on the checkbox for Enable Disk Use (if you didn’t already have it on). This mounts your iPod on your desktop just like it was a hard disk, so now you can go straight to the folder called “DCIM,” and inside that folder, you’ll find your videos—just drag-and-drop them right onto your PC. Easy enough.
