SOURCE: "Charging not supported by this accessory"

The iPod 2nd Gen changed how it charges and all those devices that once charged your older iPod, will no longer charge this one unless you get the adapter which is at the apple store and I have seen it at walmart for about $30. that device converts the power for you so it will charge. my adapter works perfectly.

SOURCE: Ipod nano not detected by windows and itunes

There are a couple of things you can try:

Make sure you have updated to the latest version of iTunes.

To reset your iPod:

  • 1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  • 2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
  • After resetting, try again to connect to the computer
How to restore your iPod: For Windows:

THIS WILL ERASE ALL SONGS, VIDEOS, PODCASTS FROM THE IPOD AND SET IT BACK TO THE FACTORY SETTINGS
  • 1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.
  • 2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.
  • 3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes. If the iPod's display doesn't show "Connected" or "Do not disconnect" you may need to put the iPod into disk mode to proceed.
  • 4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
  • 5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
    • Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
    • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
    • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
  • 6. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.
  • 7. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
  • 8. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.
These steps usually will fix the issue...I hope that helps!

I have an ipod model a1199. i was wondering if you can use a newer ipod touch charger for it? and if not what kind of charger does it use?


Charge an iPod Nano Without a Charger
If you've misplaced or broken the charger that came with your iPod Nano, you might think you need to purchase a new one in order to continue using your Mp3 player.
However, there is a way that you can continue enjoying your iPod without having to purchase a new charger.
As long as you have a USB cord and a computer, you can charge your iPod without having the charger.

Locate the USB cord that came with your iPod Nano package.
It is the same cord that you use in order to sync or transfer music.
Plug the small end into your iPod Nano.

Plug the other, larger end into your computer's USB port.
Choose "Do Nothing" when your computer presents the dialogue box to let you choose what to do with the hardware or USB connection.
Leave your Nano plugged into your computer for at least 4 hours to charge.
Unplug your iPod Nano when charging is complete.
Charge an iPod Without the Charger
Many iPod owners purchase a charging unit that plugs into a standard wall outlet to recharge the iPod's battery.
However, the iPod wall charger is not included with new purchases, so consumers must either purchase a separate charger or find a way to charge their iPod using other means.
Here's a simple method to charge your iPod using your computer.

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod.
Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC computer.

Open the iTunes program by clicking on the icon in the Dock on a Mac or using the Start menu on a PC.
Click on the name of your iPod under the "Devices" heading in the main iTunes window.
Click on the "Sync" button to synchronize your iPod with your computer data.
While the iPod is syncing, the power from the USB port on your computer will charge your iPod's battery.

Unplug your iPod from the computer once the battery is fully charged.

This one should be ok.

My ipod wont charge


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

If your ipod won't charge, the fault should either be from the battery or from the means by which you are charging it.

If the battery is very weak, then it might not come-up when using charger or PC to charge it. Leave the ipod in the charge for about 6 hours and it should come up if the battery is weak.

But if it doesn't come up, then you have to check your charger. Test your charger with a friend's ipod. If the charge works with your friend's ipod then it means your battery is the cause of the problem.

The essence of the above test is to diagnose and get to the root of the problem. So that a precise/concise solution can be proffered.

I hope the above is clear. If not, please let me know.

Regards.

It is in the shape of an i pod shuffle the one with buttons my friend gave it to me with no charger and i will never see him again i used my brothers usb jack and it charges it but how do i put songs on it...


If it's an iPod Shuffle, just go to http://apple.com and download the latest version of the iTunes software. iTunes takes some time getting accustomed to but you'll figure it out :)

The iPod Shuffle does not come with a charger. It charges through the small connector that connects the iPod to your computer via the USB port.

Hope that was helpful!

My Ipod Nano Wont Charge on the wall Charger.


Hello Kawase,

I would suggest you try charging the unit this one time by connecting it to the computer. I suspect that the charger may be defective if plugging the wall charger into the iPod has no effect on the low battery warning. If the iPod is able to be charged from the USB port on your computer that would tend to confirm that the charger is not working. If the iPod does not charge when connected to either the computer or the wall charger then you may very well have a another defective iPod.

Best Regards
Ken
