If you have a friend with a FIREWIRE plug (wall outlet) try to use that to charge your iPod. If this doesn't work try to put your iPod in DISK MODE and RESTORE using iTunes. SEE THE COMMENT POSTED by : Comment by Check7734, posted on Jan 25, 2008

I have connected my nanomax ipod to the computer and it is not should i charge it?

Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to solve your problem. So you have connected your Nanomax iPod to the computer and it's not charging like it's supposed to, and you want to know how you should charge it properly? There are two ways you can charge the battery - charging via your Dock Connector to USB Cable, or the Apple USB Power Adapter (which is sold separately). Here are the step by step instructions to charging your and Nanomax.

Using the Dock Connector to USB Cable
  1. Using your Dock Connector to USB Cable, plug the dock connector end to your iPod and plug the USB end to your computer. Make sure the computer you are using has a USB 2.0 port (check your computer's technical specifications to see if it's USB 2.0 certified). Most USB ports on the keyboards of laptops do not provide enough power to perform charging activities. If you have a Docking Station, plug the docking connector into the station and placed the iPod in the station as well.
  2. Make sure your computer is fully awake and not asleep (meaning in sleep mode).
  3. A fully charged battery takes 3 hours to complete. An 80% charged battery takes an hour and 30 minutes. The battery is charging when it shows the charging icon (a battery not fully shaded in green, with a lightning bolt).The battery is done charging when the "fully charged" icon shows (a green-shaded battery with a 2-prong plug showing).
  4. When you are done, disconnect the cable from your computer.
Using the Apple USB Power Adapter
  1. Connect the Alternating Current (AC) Plug Adapter with the power adapter (if connected already, skip this step).
  2. Using your Dock Connector to USB Cable, connect the dock connector end to your iPod and the USB end to the power adapter.
  3. Plug the power adapter into a polarized wall outlet or surge protector outlet.
I think you connected everything correctly, but the USB port on your computer did not have enough power to charge your battery. If that's the case, you will have to find a computer that has a USB 2.0 port on it (like a desktop PC or MAC, or a car adapter charging device) and connect to it, or use the USB Power Adapter (sold seperately). I think this pretty much answers your question. I hope this benefits you the best way possible. Once again, thank you for choosing Fixya as your one-stop solution spot for your problems. Have a good day, evening or night; whatever time you are viewing this, and visit us again the next you need assistance troubleshooting.

How do I re charge battery with electrical plug

To charge the battery using your computer:
Connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your computer using the included iPod shuffle Dock. The computer must be turned on and not in sleep mode (some models of Macintosh can charge iPod shuffle while in sleep mode). When the battery is charging, the status light on iPod shuffle is orange. When the battery is fully charged, the status light turns green.
If you don't see the status light, iPod shuffle might not be connected to a high-power USB port. Try another USB port on your computer.

To charge the battery using an iPod USB Power Adapter If you do not have then you have to buy the same from Apple Store) 1 Connect the AC plug adapter to the power adapter (they might already be connected). 2 Plug the USB connector of the iPod shuffle Dock into the power adapter. 3 Plug the power adapter into a working electrical outlet. 4 Put iPod shuffle in the dock. You can disconnect and use iPod shuffle before it is fully charged.

My ipod won't charge. keeps saying "please wait. very low battery" what's wrong with it?

I had the same problem. Went to the Apple store and the technician said that the IPOD battery ran down to low (battery level showed red) and the USB port on the computer was not strong enough to recharge it. He used a rechargeable adapter that pluged directly into the wall (adapter cost about $30) and recharged it enough for me to take it home and recharge it on my computer.He said to never let the battery level drop below 5% unless you are going to recharge it using the adapter that pluged into the wall. I bought an IPOD rechargeable travel kit from Target for $20 and used it to recharge my IPOD. My IPOD works fine now. The Technician also said at some point the battery will need to be replaced (in a year or two depends). Will cost about $59 to replace it (don't quote me on the timeframe or price of replacement, this may have been just for my IPOD but thought this would be useful info for someone.

Don't know how to add anything

there are 2 ways to put content on your ipod.
one is making playlists and syncing your go to file on the top and create playlist.
add songs to the playlist and sync the play list.

another way is to open you itunes with the ipod connected and on the left side you will see 3 sections in the light blue shaded area. the middle section represents you ipod and it's contants, click on music and the music folder will open in a large white window to the right of the blue shaded area.
maximize your music folder on your computer so it is in front of itunes.
drag and drop songs into the first column of the large white area.
drag the song and hold it over the white area, when the border of the white area turns blue drop the song and it wil load onto your ipod. you can do multiple songs by hgilighting the first song pressing the shift key on your keyboard and highlight the last song in the set. left click and hold, drag and drop in the first column of the white area. make sure to watch for thr border to turn blue then drop the songs.

Setup assistant won't appear

they is no setup assistant in itunes.
when your ipod mounts to itunes the first thin you will see is the summary page which shows an ipod and allows you to change the name.
on the left you will see your ipod and folders appear in the blue shaded column.
so hook it up and enjoy.
Warning: if you sync the ipod to your computer it will delete everything except what actually came from your computer.

IPOD doesn't hold charge; just get clicking noise when plugged in.

Well your battery is probably dead; but i would recommend that you first plug it in and restore it using itunes. If your not familiar with the restore process you will simply plug in the ipod and wait for it to appear in itunes. on the summary page you will look for a restore/update button. After clicking that, follow the on screen instructions. After the ipod reboots and reconnects to the computer, eject it through itunes and charge it until the ipod screen says fully charged. after you see this screen, reset the ipod by pressing both the menu and center buttons at the same time until you see an apple appear on the screen. If none of these steps work you will need to either get a new battery or new ipod. For a new battery you would want to contact apple at 1-800-APL-CARE (1-800-275-2273). Hope this helps :)

I think my iPod nano battery is at the end of its life. It will not power up on any of 4 sources, namely - 2 Mac computers, 1 Logitech docking station and 1 Apple power plug for iPod. I have re-booted it...

If it wont charge on any of multiple sources then you have a dead battery. Just to make sure, if you are comfortable with opening up your Ipod, check to make sure that the ribbon cable going from the chipset to the battery is securely plugged in on both sides.

Ipod 30gb

To me, it sounds like maybe you have the ipod plugged into your computer, you have itunes open and instead of clicking on the MUSIC portion of itunes, you are in the actual ipod's portion that comes up when you plug the ipod in.
To make this process easier, you should try unplugging your ipod and deleting the songs you don't want from your itunes without your ipod plugged in. Once you have deleted the songs you don't want, try plugging your ipod in. You can't delete songs directly off your ipod.
Hope this helps! If not, you might want to consider calling apple.

My 30G 5th Generation pod is totally dead and will not charge even with a new battery

  1. Toggle the Hold switch. To do this, slide the switch to Hold (an orange bar appears) and then slide it back (orange bar is hidden).
  2. Reset the iPod by holding down the Menu and Center buttons for 10 seconds.

    If the Apple logo appears on the display, connect the iPod to a computer and verify that it appears in iTunes and can play music. If the iPod appears in iTunes and can play music, no further troubleshooting is needed.

    If the Apple logo does not appear or the iPod is not seen in iTunes, connect the iPod to a power source by either plugging it into an Apple iPod USB Power Adapter or directly into a computer's USB port.

  3. Let the iPod charge for at least 20 minutes. Note: If the iPod is connected to a computer, make sure the computer is not set to sleep, standby, or hibernate.
  4. After the iPod has charged for at least 20 minutes and while it is still connected to the power source, toggle the Hold switch again as in step 1.
  5. Try resetting the iPod by holding down the Menu and Center buttons for 10 seconds.

    If the Apple logo appears on the display, connect the iPod to a computer and verify that it appears in iTunes and can play music. If the iPod appears in iTunes and can play music, no further troubleshooting is needed.

    If the Apple logo does not appear or the iPod is not seen in iTunes, the iPod should be serviced.
