    I have windows vista operating system.
    I loaded my music into media player. It plays ok.
    So then I want to transfer it to my Apple ipod nano.
    I click on sync and transfer the required music to the right where it says drag items here to create a sync list. Easy.
    At the top right of the screen it says connect a device. I plug in the ipod nano to a usb port (and I tried two) but it is not recognised. So I cannot transfer my music to my nano.

    doesn't matter. You cannot use the nano in media player. You need to use iTunes.

    what you'll probably need to do is download a converter that converts from wma to mp3, itunes and ipod wont accept anything else, you cant put music on your ipod through any other media player other than itunes...so after you download your music you need to put it in a folder on ur desk top, this is assuming u have a converter downloaded, i use melodycan it seems alright, n if any one knows a better one i'm here to learn as well....anyways after ur music is in the desktop folder you open the converter and go to add files or add folder and add the appropriate file/folder it will automatically start convertering, after the music is converted u have to put it into a new folder then from there u can drag n drop into itunes! I know its a long process but apple really made it hard to put music on that isnt from there store, but theres always a way around it. Hope this is helpful....good luck!

    Thanks. All I needed to do was download itunes, drag my music to it and go from there. It was easy.

    Note that iTunes DOES have the option to convert wmas then add them, though I don't think it does DRM versions.
