Question about Apple iPod nano
I just bought the newest ipod nano and when i plug into my car using the aux. cord it pauses when the cord moves to the side slightly, this has happened in my brothers car as well. what is wrong?
This can be caused by the audio jack, if it doesn't sit tight anymore, the headphone becomes disconnected for small periods of time causing the iPod to detect the headphone as unplugged, hence it will pause. Try different headphones, especially the ones w/ nickel plated jacks (the original apple headphones have nickel plated jacks). If that doesn't help the jack needs replacement. If you're out of warranty you can send it to any third party iPod Repair Service.

Attach a USB connector to the iPod and plug it into a USB connection on a computer for power, or into a stand alone USB charger plugged into a power strip for electrical power.
Pick up the iPod. Move the "Hold" switch at the top of the iPod to the "Locked" position so that an orange color appears by the switch.
Return the switch to the "Unlocked" position.
Repeat this process.
Press and hold the "Home" button and the button at the top right corner together if using a fifth generation iPod, iPod Nano, iPod Mini or iPod with a click wheel.
Press and hold the "Menu" button and the "Play/Pause" button together if using an iPod Touch. Press and hold the "Menu" button and the "OK" button together if using an older iPod.
Continue holding the buttons together until the screen flashes and then displays the iPod name and the Apple logo.
Release the buttons.
Wait as the iPod resets itself and turns itself back on.
Leave the iPod connected to the USB connector so that it can fully charge the battery.
Remove the iPod from the USB connector.
Navigate to a song using the menu selection and play some music
hope this helps
