Catastrophe. A corrupted mp3 caused my Ipod to dump all files and now Itunes cannot read it to do a restore. Is there anything else I can do?.


Are you sure this was a corrupt MP3 that went on to the iPod, rather than an MP3 that the iPod itself corrupted?

Maybe as a result of a dying hard disk?

MY USB port says reading when i connect a USB drive. WHy?


ANSWER: The USB is not going to work with your iPod. It is intended to be used with a flash drive or external hard drive with a folder structure containing either .mp3 or .wma files.
REASON: The way the USB works on the system is that it reads all the files and folders on the entire device and will say "reading" until it reads all the files and folders. This should only take a few seconds but if there is tons of files it may take longer. Main problem: An iPod contains much more than just music files and folders - it contains an entire operating system. Worse, the operating system which the iPod uses is protected, keeping other devices except for iTunes from reading the music files.
SOLUTION: You will need to use a flash drive or external hard drive with your USB. This device can only contain music, and the music must be organized into folders. Your iPod will not work. However, you can use Auxiliary input using a cable which both ends are 1/4" headphone jacks, one end going to the iPod and other plugged into your stereo.

The USB port on my Dual xdm6350 will not work anymore. It will not read my Ipod. and my ipod still connects to my computer


the USB port does not play music it only charges. the AUX is were you plug it in to get the music. If thats not it then it could be your cord. I had the same problem awhile back.

When I plug my iPhone into the USB it doesn't


ANSWER: The headphone jack will not charge your iPod. Only the USB will charge your iPod. However, the headphone jack will play music, but the USB will not play music from your iPod.
REASON: The headphone jack does not provide any power to charge your iPod. It isnly has enough power to recieve a music signal.
REASON WHY YOU CANNOT PLAY IPOD THROUGH THE USB: The USB is only intended to be used with a flash drive or external hard drive with a folder structure containing either .mp3 or .wma files. The way the USB works on the system is that it reads all the files and folders on the entire device and will say "reading" until it reads all the files and folders. This should only take a few seconds but if there is tons of files it may take longer. Main problem: An iPod contains much more than just music files and folders - it contains an entire operating system. Worse, the operating system which the iPod uses is protected, keeping other devices except for iTunes from reading the music files.
TO PLAY MUSIC FROM USB (NOT IPOD): You will need to use a flash drive or external hard drive with your USB. This device can only contain music, and the music must be organized into folders. Your iPod will not work. However, you can use Auxiliary input using a cable which both ends are 1/4" headphone jacks, one end going to the iPod and other plugged into your stereo.
SOLUTION: To charge your iPod, you need to plug it into USB. However, to play music, you need to plug your iPod into the headphone jack.

Cant connect ipod


its probly your ipod. the new classics arent compatible with alot of dock connector related acesories. before you get to angry about your ipod try it with some of your friends crappy old ones to see if they work still. if they dont work then take your deck back but if they do work then you might want to take the deck back and try to find a newer model. good luck ; )
