    Thanks for that, I have tried that and still nothing. I think there must be a switch on the board that was made when first docked but it refuses to switch back when disconnected.



    Worst still it is my wifes ipod - guess I willl just have to 'fess up' now when is her birthday.



    The only pluss is that I now have a dedicated ipod for DVD dock



    Thanks for suggestion

How do i get the radio to work


Hello,

Besides playing your favorite songs and custom playlists, you can also listen to your favorite DJs and talk shows on your iPod Nano by using it as a radio.

The iPod Radio Remote is a small and convenient accessory that lets you tune in to live radio when you're on the go, and also allows you to remotely control your iPod. Here is how you can easily setup Radio Remote on your iPod Nano and start using it as a radio.

  1. Connect the ipod Radio Remote to your iPod Nano by plugging it into the dock connector. Plug your headphones into the port at the top of the Radio Remote, next to the hold switch.
  2. Once the Radio Remote is connected, select "Music" and then "Radio" on your iPod. The Radio Remote will automatically tune in to the first available station it finds. The iPod screen will show the radio station and any other available information or data.
  3. Press the center button on the iPod. Use your iPod click wheel to find other stations. Once you have found your favorite station, hold the "Center" button down until a triangle appears on the radio dialer on your iPod screen.
  4. Once you have set up all of your favorite radio stations, use the "Next/Fast-Forward" or "Previous/Rewind" buttons to navigate between them.
Good luck.

    Docking station


    Hi!

    I would suggest that you by-pass any docking stations and connect it directly via usb charger as most ipods do. And also, try to update Itunes and your Ipod Nano software.


    Thanks and good luck! =)

    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!

    I connect Ipod to computer it will not sync


    Try resetting the iPod, this usually works.

    As follows:

    How to reset iPod To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including:iPod nano (3rd generation) iPod classic iPod (5th generation) iPod nano (2nd generation)iPod nano iPod with color display (iPod photo) iPod (Click Wheel) iPod mini iPod mini (2nd generation)

    Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds.

    You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.

    If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

    To reset iPod, iPod (scroll wheel), iPod (touch wheel), and iPod (dock connector)Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons simultaneously until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

    If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

    If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time is preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on.
