Ipod nano won't connect to iTrip car system

Ipod nano won't play on iTrip car system. Returned accessory thinking it was defunct but new one does the same thing. All our other ipods of the same model work fine with car system. When I try to connect this particular ipod it won't play and freezes up. It will allow me to reset manually once I disconnect from car accessory. Ipod does, however, connect with no problems to my computer for syncing and charging. Thanks in advance.

You might need to check which version or generation your iPod Nano is because older versions use a different voltage in power then the newer generations. Older generations will blow the iTrips fuse or may defunct the nano.

Why is my itrip screen blank?


The battery is probably too flat to be recharged via normal methods, you need to get a new battery, or take the old one out and charge it with a higher power charger.

Itrip screen flashes and wont start


From the Griffin website: "This means that the iPod you're using isn't compatible with the new iTrip. The new iTrip with App Support requires data connections that aren't available in iPod models made before September of 2007. The good news is, there are plenty of iTrip models that are compatible with your iPod. For a complete list of Griffin products that are compatible with your iPod, go to our Products page and click on the picture of your iPod"

My griffin itrip will not work with my ipod touch


Do a soft reset, once or twice, by pressing the power and center buttons at the same time. This should work. It did for me, and I found the answer on the Griffon site. Hope it helps!

How can I use iTunes to put photos on iPod nano?


"You can easily copy images from your computer to the iPod nano using photo sync in iTunes. Please note that you cannot import photos into iPod nano directly from a digital camera or media reader. If you connect an Apple iPod Camera Connector or Belkin Media Reader for iPod w/Dock Connector to iPod nano, you'll get a message on your iPod screen that says, ""The currently attached accessory is not supported by this iPod."" If you connect a Belkin Digital Camera Link for iPod w/ Dock Connector to iPod nano, you'll see a ""Do not disconnect"" message briefly, then the main iPod menu appears. For information on other iPod accessories that don't work with iPod nano, Some accessories that work with other iPod models won't work with iPod nano. Here are some items to note and the affected accessories: Photo Import iPod nano cannot import photos from an accessory (use iTunes to copy photos to iPod nano). It will not work with third-party card readers or with the Apple Camera Connector. If you connect such a device, you'll see an error message that displays for about a minute and reads, ?The currently attached accessory is not supported by this iPod.? Voice Recorders (Microphones) Like iPod mini, iPod nano does not work with third-party voice recorders. Apple iPod Remote Because iPod nano does not have a remote port, it won't work with any accessory that requires it, such as Apple iPod Remote. Headphones Port Location The headphones port on iPod nano is located on the bottom, therefore, it won't work with any third-party accessory that requires that this port be located on the top. No Video Out iPod nano does not support video out through the dock connector or the headphone port. iPod nano is not compatible with the Apple iPod AV Cable designed for iPod with color display (and iPod photo). If you need to use any of the above devices, you'll need to use an iPod model that supports the accessory. "
