Re: Charging via ac dc

Sounds like your ipod is having trouble reading your firewire connection, it is different than usb. you could probably go to the nearest apple store and get it replaced if its under warrenty.

How do I charge my ipod? Just got it from my

Connect it to your computer via the USB cord. You can also get adapters which will allow you to charge it using a wall socket (AC power). The adapter plugs into the wall, and then you plug the Nano's USB cord into the adapter.

My ipod nano does not hold charge.

What you can try and do is to charge it ac not dc. Ac would be in the car with a car charger. But if that is how you always charge it that is why it dont keep charge cause an long about of time charging your ipod in the car is bad on ac. The reason im telling you to charge it ac is because the battery is not use to it. Or vice versa.

Apple ipod not getting charged

First, please check your connection (I'm sure you have already done this). Make sure that the cable is plugged in and working on both ends.
If that is fine, I would recommend taking it back and getting a new one. If you just recently purchased it, you should be able to return without a problem. It sounds like you might have a defective product and you don't want to get stuck with it after the return period.
Good news is that when you get the new one, if you use iTunes, it will automatically sync up and you wont have to manually load songs.
Hope this was helpful but if you still have questions, let me know.
Have a great day

Apple screen

Connect the ipod to your computer and let it sit for about fifteen minutes. Then it should show up in your computer and under itunes. Usually, if your ipod dies completely, when you try to charge it using a wall or car charger, it will do that, just flashing the apple logo and going back off. Leaving it plugged up to the computer will allow the battery to charge normally, just enough so that it can come on and sync with itunes. While it is plugged into the computer and charging, it should say something like, battery very low, wait few minutes, charging. It should work after letting it sit plugged up to the computer.

Ipod nano problem

When you connected the iPod it was most likely in automatic sync mode which caused it to sync to your computer. When you restored the iPod you wiped the content out of the iPod. You will have to regather the music and podcasts you wanted at this point. I recommend creating a back up in your computer this time though. Just in case it should happen again.

The new ipod nano

How old is it? if it's under warranty apple may fix it.
Simply, if you charge your iPod through you computer then the battery could be damaged. USB ports only put out 5 volts. If you have an AC charger that puts out 9.5 volts then consider charging it with that. Some AC adapters only put out 5 volts for the purpose matching the USB standard, but it's not good for the ipod.
