Note: iSync downloads information from your computer to iPod nano. You can’t use iSync to load information from your iPod nano to your computer.
If you are using Windows or you don’t want to synchronize your contacts automatically, you can download information to iPod nano manually. The supported file type is vCard, and iPod nano must be enabled as an external disk (see “Using iPod nano as an External Disk” on page 35).
To import contact information manually: 1 Connect iPod nano and open your favorite email or contacts application. Importing contacts works with Palm Desktop, Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Entourage, and Eudora, among others.
2 Drag contacts from the application’s address book to the iPod Contacts folder.
In some cases you might need to export contacts, and then drag the exported file or files to the iPod Contacts folder. See the documentation for your email or contacts application.
To import appointments and other calendar events manually: 1 Export calendar events from any calendar application that uses the standard iCalendar format (filenames end in .ics) or vCal format (filenames end in .vcs).
2 Drag the files to the Calendars folder on iPod nano.
Note: You can only use iSync and iCal to download to-do lists to iPod nano.
