    When you connect it to your computer does it just say charging, or does it actually connect and show in itunes?

What you may have is a low-speed USB port, when the iPod is designed to run on a hi-speed USB port All Mac computers have this and most Windows years 2005 and up have it as well. Another thing that may have happened is when you plugged in the cord, or unplugged it, you may have accidentally broke off some of the metal inside the iPod that connects to the cord Try looking at that as well. Hope this helps!!!!

Well, it sounds as though your battery is shot. However, before completely giving up i would restore the ipod in itunes and then let it fully charge. After it says "fully" charged, disconnect and test. if it still has no charge, reset it by holding down both the menu and center buttons until you see an apple appear on the screen. If after these steps it still does not charge i would check into getting a new battery either through iPodbatterydepot.com or by calling apple tech support at 1-800-APL-CARE (1-800-275-2273) Good luck

SOURCE: 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! =)

SOURCE: Charges, plays on docking station,but doesn't play when removed.

That is a dead battery. It shows charged, only because it will take no more charges. The best solution, as I have told others, is to save the 30 bucks or more for a replacement, sell it on line, should bring 40 or so. Then spend the total 75 dollars on a refurbished ipod. Don't buy a used one, will soon have the same problem, unless it is advertises a new battery

try doing a firmware update when you plug it into your computer, there should be an option in iTunes in the My iPod section to check for new firmware.

When I try to charge my iPod on my AZ-1330D (AZ1330D/37) Docking Station I get the message "charging is not supported with this accessory." The IPod is a Generation 5 Nano.


There may not be enough power from the docking station to power the nano. There are also rare times when it wont charge because the ipod doesn't recognize it and wont charge to protect itself. Try plugging it in directly into your laptop if possible.

New ipod nano not compatable with bose docking


This is true. The new iPod nano is not compatible with the original SoundDock. This only means that it won't charge the iPod's power. Audio should be okay. This is an Apple issue. They changed the way almost all of their iPods charge (except the iPod classic). Bose can upgrade the SoundDock for their normal repair fee of $99. This would also you a new 1 year warranty.

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!
