Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players
All of the Philips iPod accessories were made only for specific iPods - double-check your spec sheet (or the box) to find out which iPod's it is compatible with. Understand that the date of manufacture of the Philips speakers makes a huge difference - if the speakers are 2006 speakers, then Philips did not know about the difference between iPod Nano 2nd gen and 3rd gen, because that issue just didn't exist when the speakers were made. The rule of thumb is: if the Philips was made in 2006, and the iPod was made in 2007 or 2008, then those speakers are not going to work with your iPod.
You might want to double-check with them, however, because there was one model of speakers that was supposed to come with adapters for the various IPods, and every once in a while a speaker set come without those adapters in the box - check the accessories section of the specs to see if it was supposed to come with adapters - they are available from Philips.
Also, the Target/Wal-Mart/etc employees don't have a clue about compatibility issues - they just aren't trained in those details.
