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.

My ipod is disabled


Step 1:
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

I have no radio siegnel from my ipod nano in my bose sound dock


The ipod headphone cord acts as an antenna, and with the design of the nano you can't plug them into the ipod and the docking station at the same time. You can buy an audio adapter cable - a 3.5mm to 3.5mm one; just plug one end into your ipod and the other end into the aux port on the back of your dock. You can then use the radio, as the cable will act as the antenna. I got one on ebay - the cable has plugs on each end which are the same size as your ipod headphone plug. You can also get them in variety stores or electrical stores.

Can't get the Cd rb10 to play my ipod.


Most likely the radio itself has to be set to aux input. For instance my pioneer deck naturally has two source settings, cd and tuner. But in the settings I have the option to turn aux input on and then have that added to the sources. You'll probably have to look up how to turn it on from a manual.

How do I connect my Ipod to a JVC KD-G230?


The cord you are using is an audio cable with a 3.5mm plug with two black bands on the plug. The JVC Source button has to be pressed until AUX shows in the display. The volume on the iPod AND the volume on the deck affect the sound - turn the iPod up to 70% volume for best results.

I own a 2009 Hyundai Elantra and was told I could plug my iPod into the iPod USB port using my iPod cable (Apple's). However, neither my iPod Touch or iPod Nano work. Once connected, it just says "Reading...


I have used the Apple iPod cable with no problem in the Elantra USB port with an iPod Nano & iPod Classic. You have to change the music settings, skip songs, etc. from the iPod which is distracting while driving.

I purchased the cord made by Hyundai at the dealership, that plugs into both USB and aux port. The music titles, album info etc show up on the radio screen, and you can use the buttons on the radio to change the tunes, view artists, albums... (safer while driving!). I've seen sellers on eBay that sells the Hyundai made one (cheapest starts @ $24+ w/ s/h - link here) http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/NEW-HYUNDAI-2009-09-iPOD-INPUT-USB-AUX-AUDIO-CABLE_W0QQitemZ230379648893QQcmdZViewItemQQptZCar_Audio_Video?hash=item35a3b2777d&_trksid=p4506.m20.l1116, as well as copycat ones - I wouldn't buy a copycat one (my opinion).

Do you have a case on your iPods? I have experienced the "reading error" with the Hyundai cord on my son's iPod Classic (he has a leather case on it). It seems to do that because the plug going in to the iPod is not making full contact with the iPod because of the case. When he takes the case off and reconnects, there are no further problems.

Hope this helps, Good luck!

MY IPOD IS CONECTED TO A GRIFFIN AUDIO AUX CABLE IN MY CAR, IT WAS WORKING THRU BOTH SPEAKERS AT UNTIL YESTERDAY WHEN I REALIZED IT WAS ONLY COMING OUT OF ONE SPEAKER. WHEN I MOVE THE IPOD IN CERTAIN...


It's one of 3 things.  Either you have a bad aux cable, the cable isn't pushed in all the way into the ipod/stereo, or you have a bad connection on the ipod itself.
To test theory #3, plug in some headphones and wiggle the cord around... good?
To test theory #2, give a good push on the ipod.  sometimes it appears to be seated all the way but isn't.
To test theory #1, well.... you just need to buy a new cord and give it a go.  
It would be very hard to believe that it's your vehicle causing the problem.  Ipods get a lot of use/abuse out of them with tension on the headphones.  This can cause internal loose headphone connections on the ipod itself.  Hopefully it's just not seated properly or your cord gave out on you.  Ipods aren't cheap.
Good Luck

Ipod nano


to put your own music on it you will need to download the latest version of itunes

http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

then create a library of music in itunes and plug your ipod into the computer and sync your ipod with itunes to download the music onto it.

If the ipod has music on it already then you can just scroll through the library on it to listen to the music, if it is not music you want, then follow the above advice and you will be able to copy your own music into itunes then sync it with your ipod.

Hope this helps
