4th generation iPod nano and iTunes

Just received brand new iPod nano 4th generation and not only does it not work but now iTunes also will not work. I have been using Macs since the 80's and I can not believe what a piece of junk I just received. I can't synch I can even start itunes????? What is this crap?


Can anyone help me, I would like to know if Apple plans on releasing the 4GB Ipod Nano 4th Generation, since it's already available in other markets. Will they be available in United States soon?
