There is a bent pin or an object blocking a pin in the receptacle of her iPod.
Sometimes, a paperclip or thin needle can be used to carefully pry out the pin so it makes connection with the male plug when coupled together.
Carefully inspect the receptacle on the ipod.

This seems to be a charger problem. You may try a different charger.

Problem with ihome and ipod nano.


yes, unfortunately the ihome iH9 is not compatible with previous models of the ipod nano.

if you want a similar device, there are many other docking stations for the ipod that are ip0 that ARE compatible with the ipod nano 2G

iH85B is another ihome dock which is compatible with all ipods after the ipod mini (including the ipod nano 2G)

Ipod wont show up on itunes


Hey there Twinkle,
The wierd symbol when charging is normal.

The HISPEED thing is because the USB socket you are plugging into is not powered so it won't work at all in this kind of socket. The best way to connect it is using the main USB socket in the PC or MAC you are using rather than an external hub. If you do use an external hub make sure it is powered v2.0 USB.

To fix the ipod reset thing, once you do get it connected to your pc do a software update on it (this will probably come up automatically when you've connected it) or click the 'Restore' button and this should fix it.

All the best
