It depends on the format you have the songs in MP3 or AAC (AAC is usually a bit smaller in my experience), and also at what rate they are encoded at.

The lower the quality you have the songs at the more you'll fit on the iPod. I usually go for 96kbps.

You can check the quality of the songs by right clicking on them (in iTunes) and having a look at the properties.

I can store more than 80 songs on my 1GB iPod nano in MP3 format. I didn't have to do anything before loading the music using iTunes.

I thought they came in 2gb or 4gb sizes?
You must be doing something wrong. My son got a 2gig Nano for Christmas and spent the whole of Christmas day transferring his entire music collection to it. Hundreds of tracks. Have another look at the manual, the on screen help, or the Apple website.

iPod Nano's now come in 1, 2 and 4Gb flavours!

If you turn on the Nano...

Go in to Settings -> About, it will tell you the total capacity, the amount left and the total songs on the iPod.

If the capacity information is correct (it probably won't be a full 1Gb - my 4Gb Nano reports 3.7Gb capacity), then chances are it's the size of the music files that is stopping you use to it's full potential
