iPod Nano Question

Anyone know if the iPod Nano allows you to rate the music from the device itself? Just picked up a Nano and I can't seem to find a way to do that on it. Or is it just available on the iPhone and iTouch?

I know I can rate the music through iTunes but I like being able to download new music and rate it on the player so I can decide later if I'm going to keep it or not.

I don't know about the Nano, but on my mini I just press the center button three times to get to the 5 stars.

OK, having another issue but this time it's actually with iTunes.

So I rated all of the music I sync'd to my Nano the other day and when I bring up iTunes and sync the Nano, none of the song ratings transfers over to iTunes. I deleted all the music I had on the Nano and sync'd up some new music and tried again, same thing. Music is transferring over just fine from iTunes to the Nano but the ratings aren't getting over. I upgraded iTunes and tried again and still no difference.

Now this worked fine when I had an iPhone but now doesn't work with the Nano. Any ideas?

Can't help you on that one, I always rated the songs first if at all, never the other way around.

Well fuck it's still not syncing

Guess I'm going to wipe the library, uninstall iTunes, and start over and see what it does. This is my first iPod and this thing worked flawlessly during the brief time I had the iPhone.

Just an update on this. I wound up selling my 4GB Nano and going with an 8GB and I was still having the same problem with the Song Ratings not syncing when I hooked up my iPod. Posed the question over on the Apple Support Forums and after a few days I got an answer. Apparently when I switched my iTunes to Manage Manually it took away my ability to sync and bring over the Ratings. Go figure but I know how to get around it now.
