The usb connection when using an ipod with it doesnt work! i tried enabling hard disk usage and putting songs on the hard drive but it stil does not play, the screen on the tv just freezes and nothing happens
Make sure you have loaded the latested software from apple. Check in disk management if the ipod is seen by the pc. Usualy the probleme occurges if you have multipile hard drives. Windows assagins the the first open drive letter to the Iipod but the ipod software needs it to be E: drive. Hope this will help
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

does the radio support ipods or does it support memory sticks i would check but i can not find a manual for your radio im guessing that the radio does not support ipods it supports songs on memory sticks.
i recomend that you put some songs on a memory stick or through itunes make your ipod enable disk use
and put the songs on the device using my computer and then try and play some songs
Be sure you have the latest version of iTunes. You can also try downloading software called Songbird. If none of this works do a hard reset of your iPod and put it into disk mode. You won't lose any of your songs. 1. Disconnect from the computer. 2. Press and hold the center and menu button until the Apple appears on screen 3. Before the Apple is gone, press and hold the center and left back button until it says "Disk mode". 4. Connect and try transferring songs.
If that works, you'll have to reset after you're done. Hope I've helped, I work on iPods and they can be a real pain.
You have to first enable the function for using the iPod as a Mass Storage Device. Connect the iPod to your computer and open iTunes. When it is connected, go to the main screen for your iPod (in iTunes) and check the box that says Enable Disk Usage. Then, you will be able to find the iPod in 'My Computer' and store files there.
The Ipod or the USB cable may be defective. Try first connecting the Ipod to a different computer to test it, or using a different data cable.
If Ipod works, then do the following.
Unplug computer power cable, and if it is a laptop or a macbook also remove battery for ten minutes. This will get rid of elecrostatic charges on USB connectors. If that does not work try reinstalling Itunes, this will synch the Ipod again with the computer.
