Try plugging it into another PC if you have one around or can use a friend's. Also try another USB port on the PC. If the Nano works other than syncing it could also be a faulty USB cable. I've got both a 5th and 6th generation model of the Nano and I know that the cable end which attaches to the Nano is easily broken.

I am also having trouble locating my device on Finder. It doesn't even show up on iTunes as being loaded. Sometimes my iphone does this as well. I manually have to open Image Capture to see the device connected.

Does anyone have a suggestion. I have checked the cable. It works perfectly when playing on the speakers I have. Also checked the male end and it accepts a different cable which works as well.

So now what is going to happen when I cannot eject before I disconnect? You usually can see the device in Finder and eject it. Perhaps I can choose command+eject button on keyboard.
