ITunes unable to detect iPod nano

Time:November 30

well, my iPod nano was working fine until yesterday when i did the iTunes update. After I went through with the iTunes update, it prompt me to update the program in my iPod nano. I thought it was supposed to help in making my life easier but it turns out to be otherwise. 1 min into the update, it started giving me error messages and finally end with a message saying files in my iPod nano are corrupted. Now, despite repeated attempts to reset nano and reinstall iTunes, iTunes is still unable to detect nano. I really need some help with this problem.

First of all, try another port on your computer. Some ports are not connected direct to the motherboard and do not recognize the iPod as well as those that are. Reset the iPod each time you connect it to another port.
Still no joy, see these.
