    I have an Altec Lansing Inmotion docking station for a Sansa View. The docking station claims to charge the sansa, however this is not the case! My sansa will charge with a direct connection to a AC adaptor but not with the docking station. I have pushed the Sansa firm in the docking station to affirm connection. Is there anything else that I can do? Any settings within the sansa that I need to change? Thanks anyone for your help!

1 the connection of portable devices, just may not be working, or it could be loose( try pushing it all the way, until it doesn't go down).

2 and if that, doesn't work. Then try finding another AC adapter that has the same energy output.
(when you look at the paper that is posted on the front of the ac adapter, you can two sections INPUT and OUTPUT) try finding another adapter that has the same OUTPUT numbers and plug it into the device.

3 Lastly. If the device is not new, then the battery may be dead, and it won't charge anymore.

try steps 1 to 3 and see if any of those solve your problem.

good day

The altec lansing inmotion does not charge my new ipod nano.What I can do

Maybe this could be the solution...
Important Note: iPods released since Sept 2008 (e.g. Touch 2nd Gen, 4th Gen iPod Nano and iPod Classic 120 Gigabyte, iPhone 3g and onwards) have an updated dock connector that means older revisions of speaker dock may not be able to charge these newer models of iPod/iPhone. Older docks should play music from these newer models with no problem.
The problem with charging is due to Apple removing support for 12v (firewire) charging on these new models of iPod/iPhone. Only 5v (USB) charging is supported on these new models. ..."

This is because you are using different generations.
