Whenever I hook up my ipod nano to the usb port of my HT-X50, the tv displays weird 4-5 letter combinations, instead of the song and artist name. This makes navigating to a desired song impossible. Is there a compaibility issue? The box says iPod support. How can I fix this problem? Thanks yall.

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod Nano. Plug the
other end of the USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC
computer. Open the iTunes program by using the Dock on a Mac or the
Start menu on a PC.
Select your iPod Nano from the "Devices" list in the main iTunes
window. Click on the "Sync" button to make a connection between your
computer and your iPod Nano.
Click on the "Eject" symbol once the syncing process is complete.
Remove your iPod Nano from the USB cable. The iPod's lock code will now
be reset and you will be able to access all features again.
Navigate to the "Screen Lock" option in the iPod menu to lock your
iPod's screen again. Since your iPod's lock code was just reset, you
will be prompted to select a new four-digit code.
If you can't connect iPod nano to your computer , make sure;
you have installed the latest iTunes software from www.apple.com/ipod/start.
Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer. Note: A USB 2.0 port is recommended to connect iPod nano. USB 1.1 is significantly slower than USB 2.0. If you have a Windows PC that doesn’t have a USB 2.0 port, in some cases you can purchase and install a USB 2.0 card. For more information, go to www.apple.com/ipod.
iPod nano might need to be reset (see page 64).
If you’re connecting iPod nano to a portable or laptop computer using the iPod Dock Connector to USB 2.0 Cable, connect the computer to a power outlet before connecting iPod nano.
Make sure you have the required computer and software. See “If you want to double check the system requirements” on page 68.
Check the cable connections. Unplug the cable at both ends and make sure no foreign objects are in the USB ports. Then plug the cable back in securely. Make sure the connectors on the cables are oriented correctly. They can be inserted only one way.
Ipod's utilize headphone jack style connectors which can be purchased just about anywhere electronics are sold, however most dvd players utilize RCA jacks so you must purchase an adapter from ipod jack to RCA jack it runs usually about $10-25.00 also you can purchase a FM transmitter kit for about the same price but sound quality is not as good so my suggestion is go for rca converter and hook it up to audio input in back of dvd player or stereo for best quality.
Get an Aux cable(about $10) and connect it to your Zune player and to Aux 1 on your Sound system. Make sure you change your function to Aux 1. Do not connect USB or anything else. That's working for me.
Remember these five basic suggestions if you have a problem with your iPod nano. If one of the following doesn’t help, read on for solutions to specific problems. â Reset your iPod nano. See “General Suggestions,” below. â Retry with a different USB port if you cannot see iPod nano in iTunes. â Restart your computer and make sure you have the latest software updates installed. â Reinstall iPod and iTunes software from the latest versions on the web. â Restore your iPod nano. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page whatever.
If you connect an iPod via USB, the system will treat it as a hard drive and will use its (very basic) on-screen system to display your tracks.
I found the best way to get a result is to use a 3.5 (stereo) jack to RCA phono stereo input into the auxillary input on the back (side). To hear your iPod, select AUX on your Samsung and then select and play on your iPod. Bobs your uncle!!
