    Are you sure this model can play while simultaneously charging?

    Hi,
    Actually I would like to use it to play HOLD music where I work (boring) - CDs always end up skipping and I would like to be able to set it and forget it. I have read that other SanDisk models can not play while charging without some kind of alteration of the USB plug. I have a USB to ac adaptor, do you think it would work with that?

    Yes I double checked the manuals for both of the units before I recommended them to you. They will play while charging. They each have an available ac adapter for wall and car. The Sansa Fuze also has a rated 24 hour battery life. Check out this kit from Amazon it is only 27 $ and includes a ton of accessories for the Fuze including a wall and car charger:

    I assume you want to use this in your car? Please let me know what I could have done to get a better rating from you. I would like to keep my reputation as high as possible.
    Take Care,

    The Sansa will need to be plugged in to the wall. The usb modification you have heard about require removal of the #2 and #3 pins (which carry data signals) and just leaving the #1 and #4 pins which carry power, thereby tricking the unit into just charging not syncing with the pc. You could try the usb to AC adapter you already have and it will most likely work, but I can not recommend using it due to the fact that it could short the unit if the voltage was not regulated correctly. If you have time could you explain how you will be playing the hold music for the customer? Does the phone have a line in that you plug into?

Can i play my ipod nano overseas


With the proper AC adapter for the country or countries you are going to visit while overseas. You need the adapter to recharge the nano when its battery runs out. So, load up your nano with songs, videos and photos, take the USB wall charger, the 30-pin or Lightning USB cable and the AC adapter and enjoy your overseas trip and your nano !

That is a tough one. Is your iPod fully seated -- will it play music in the im600? Have you tried a different iPod in the im600 to see if it charges? Does your iPod recharge normally in other players, in a wall charger and your computer? If not, your iPod could possibly need a new battery.
Also: since it was unplugged for 3 weeks, you may just need to run the im600 through a full cycle or two (let the FM radio play until the battery is dead, with no iPod in it), then recharge the im600 for 5 or 6 hours, and THEN mount your iPod into it and see if it charges it. Be sure to unplug/plug-in the adapter into the im600 to ensure it is getting full power from the wall outlet. One last thing: the im600 will only charge the iPod when it is plugged into AC power; it won't charge the iPod while it's running on its own battery power. Good luck!

They dont charge my 5th gen ipod wats going on?


Is your AC adapter plugged into the speaker? Your iPod won't charge unless the AC adapter is connected to the speaker and an outlet; the batteries alone will only let you play your iPod.

How do i turn on my ipod shuffle?.......and how long do i charge the battery for?... and how do i know my ipod is fully charged?


  • first i will cover turning the unit on. then i will cover how to charge the unit.
    -Move the power switch on the top of the iPod Shuffle to the "Normal" or "Shuffle" position.
  • Press the play button on the iPod Shuffle to begin music playback. If the iPod does not begin to play, follow the rest of the instructions.
  • Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod Shuffle and then connect the other end of the cable to your iPod power adapter.
  • Plug the iPod power adapter into a standard electrical outlet to charge the iPod Shuffle's battery. Try to press the play button again.
  • Connect the iPod Shuffle to your Mac or PC computer using the iPod USB cable. Then, open the iTunes program on the computer and sync your iPod with your music library. If your iPod Shuffle was frozen, it should now turn on.
  • to tell if the ipod shuffle is charging. Eject iPod shuffle in iTunes, but leave it physically connected to the USB port. The front LED should be orange if it's charging (or green if it's fully charged). If it's not charging (such is the case if it's connected to a low-power USB port on a keyboard), you won't see a front LED. If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the comment. thanks and have a great day.

    How to set it to play with and Ipod


    After researching your model DEH-P470MP, it appears that to use an iPod, you need an adapter that plugs into the rear port of the unit intended for a multi-cd changer connection.
    If you have one installed and it's not working, I would check the connection on the unit. Make sure the cable is firmly seated in the port and then check the cable and also check for any fuse in the line to make sure it's not blown out.
    Also some of the earlier models of ipod adapters aren't compatible with the newer generations of ipods. There are aftermarket adapter plugs that will allow your ipod to charge/play off these earlier decks/adapters.

    Charging the mp3mp4 player


    1. Get a USB wall charger. These are AC adapters that plug directly into the outlet. You then plug the USB from your MP3 into the port on the adapter.
    2. Charge your MP3 player on the go. There are also charging kits that plug into the cigarette lighter or power plug in your car. These kits come with a DC power adapter that has a port on the end for you to plug in your MP3.
    3. Acquire Apple iPod specific chargers. When you need to charge your iPod music player through an outlet, look for the Universal USB car charger or the Universal USB travel charger made specifically for Apple products.
    Make sure that you have your player on a power strip or surge protector so that if you get a surge you wont fry your player.

    First of all, did you fully charge the battery using the A/C adapter before initial use? If your ipod does not fit with any of the attachments correctly, try just placing it on the dock without the attachment & it should connect fine just be sure it's connecting to the dock properly. I have the ipod nano 2nd generation & the attachments don't work, but it fits on the dock well without the attachments & works great!

    The new ipod nano


    How old is it? if it's under warranty apple may fix it.
    Simply, if you charge your iPod through you computer then the battery could be damaged. USB ports only put out 5 volts. If you have an AC charger that puts out 9.5 volts then consider charging it with that. Some AC adapters only put out 5 volts for the purpose matching the USB standard, but it's not good for the ipod.
