Re: Can I use Firewire to charge?

Unfortunately, the iPod nano only ships with a USB 2.0 cable, which alienates many Mac users who only have USB 1.1 and Firewire ports. Although Apple offers no official support, you can both charge and sync your iPod nano, albeit slowly, using USB 1.1. Or, you can charge your iPod nano, but not sync, using Firewire.

Hi. I'm using ipod nano. I was listening to it since morning and suddenly it just turn off and i couldn't turn it on back. It cant be charge as well. Can someone please help. I just bought it for a month...


This is a case of your iPod Nano simply not holding a charge, which is why it is turning off on you. I understand you have already mentioned that it is not holding a charge either, but that later trait according to Apple is the issue.

Some of the key steps you can initially attempt to resolve this issue, include making sure when you connect your iPod to your PC (or Mac) to make sure the sync cable is securely seated in the iPod and the USB connector is seated in the USB port of your computer.

If you are using Firewire on your iPod, the Firewire port on your PC may not actually be powered, so whenever you connect your iPod, it may be charging the device.

These are some potential troubleshooting steps you can try, however,if you find these few procedures do not work, click the link below to review the remainder of the recommended troubleshooting steps from Apple in addressing charge or power issues with the iPod Nano.

Ipod nano not charging on docking system, it has low battery if none, can play with a little charge on ipod but has to be charged with plug first, the docking system is brand new aswell and is charging...


for some **** reason the new ipod nano (4th generation) does not support FireWire and therefore will not charge on any docking station that is a FireWire power sorce - which seems to be most of them out there!
have same problem so will end up charging from computer as docking station still plays the new nano, no point in buying new docking station just for sake of charging!

Charging via ac dc


sounds like your ipod is having trouble reading your firewire connection, it is different than usb. you could probably go to the nearest apple store and get it replaced if its under warrenty.
