Cant' get it to work in car 30pin cable

I bought the Dynex 30 pin dock adapter for my new shuffle, when I connect to my new car install for the ipod (just a 30 pin cable it connects to) it shows that it's "reading" and then I get "error." I made sure the button is switched to speaker and my shuffle is set to "on" and tried every button combination but can't get my car to read and play the music on it. Otherwise, my shuffle works fine w/o it. Please advise.

i had the same problem. it seems that you have to use the remote to turn the volume up on the ipod instead of doing it manually. that worked for me.

SOURCE: What does the little electrical bolt symbol mean?

this is obviously a power or connectivity issue, check that the device ( your ipod ) is correctly seated into the logitech speaker system, and check the power cables are connected according to the manual which came with the logitech speaker system. 
question u may ask yourself? - does the ipod work as it should on its own? (without non-apple devices/components attached to it) - if it doesnt - take to an apple store or call or seek apple support. 
it sounds like your ipod is low on power from source.
i hope this directs you in the right direction, party on!

I own an iPod (30 pin port) and am trying to find a 30pin to lightning adaptor to be able to connect it to a new ihome sound system with a lightning port. Any suggestions?


I buy all of my cell accessories/adapters like this on ebay. They're usually very cheap and ship directly from China. I've gotten some that don't work, but they usually send a replacement.

They're almost always under $5 including shipping.

How to connect an iPod to a computer connection


<p>The iPod is one of the world's most popular MP3 players because of its ease of use. You can simply drag and drop video and audio files from your computer to the device to your collection on-the-go media to expand. The process of establishing this connection with your computer is easy, and maker of the iPod, Apple only requires that the freedom of the media management program, iTunes downloads to begin adding audio and video on your iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Identify your hardware. If you use a computer with a USB 2.0 port, then you have it easier because all you have to do is plug in your hardware. If you are using an older computer (usually with an operating system to Windows 2000), then you have a USB 2.0 port, in which case you should consider using a FireWire or USB 1.1. If you do not have FireWire or USB 1.1, you need a card or adapter. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Identify your iPod. Fifth-generation iPods or later can be connected using standard FireWire adapter cable option, but otherwise requires USB 2.0 ports. You can also use standard iPod USB 1.1 ports, but it requires an adapter. The Nano and Shuffle models can only connect via USB ports. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Connect the iPod cable that you use on your iPod. The larger end of the cable should fit in the bottom of your iPod, whether it is a standard FireWire cable or dock to the USB 2.0 connection. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Connect the other end of the cable to the designated location. For USB users, this will be a USB port on your computer. If you use FireWire, and connect it to four or six-pin FireWire is not. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Download and install iTunes if you do not have the software. It is a free program your iPod. If you had installed before establishing the connection, it will open and audio / visual files or on their own. After transferring to your iPod files to load or eject. <br />

The iPod USB Charger


<p>The USB cable that came with all iPod has two purposes: to your device to your computer so you can update and add music, and iPod to charge. All iPods have a lithium ion battery stops charging when the battery is full, the total life of your battery is not affected if you leave the iPod is connected to a power source. It usually takes four hours to recharge most iPods. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect the USB connector into an available high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer. Low-power USB ports, such as those in external keyboards and hubs do not work. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the 30-pin connector at the other end of the USB cable 30-pin connector on your iPod. If you charge an iPod shuffle, there is no dock connector port. Instead, use the connector on the other end of USB cable that fits in the headset. Set the iPod down and let it recharge. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Unplug the USB cable when the iPod battery indicator is full. If you charge an iPod shuffle, the green light will appear. <br />

I want to connect my ipod to the radio


According to Apple, over 90 percent of new cars retailed in the United States are equipped with iPod connectivity.
The iPod has become such a popular device, that many car stereos are now furnished with a 30-pin dock connector cable in order to link to the portable media player.
But this built-in compatibility is not essential for connecting your iPod to your car stereo. In fact, there are numerous options for integrating your iPod with your car.
Recently manufactured vehicles can support an iPod connection through an auxiliary input.
And FM transmitters can be used to stream your iPod's audio files through an FM frequency. iPods can even be connected to much older car stereos with the use of a tape adapter.

Connect an iPod to a Car Stereo Through the Auxiliary Input
Insert an extension cable with 3.5 mm stereo connectors on each end into the headphone output of your iPod. Insert the other end of the 3.5 mm stereo connector cable into your car stereo system's auxiliary input. Press the "Aux" button on your car stereo. Turn on your iPod and select media to play. The stereo will now stream audio from your iPod. b> Connect an iPod to a Car Stereo With an FM Transmitter Insert the FM transmitter into the 30-pin dock connector of your iPod. Turn on your iPod to activate the FM transmitter. Select the FM frequency you want your device to stream audio to on your car stereo. Turn on the car stereo and tune it to the same FM frequency as the FM transmitter attached to your iPod. The stereo will now stream audio from your iPod. b> Connect an iPod to a Car Stereo With a Cassette Adapter Plug the jack connector of the cassette adapter into the headphone output of your iPod. Insert the cassette into the car stereo. Turn on your iPod and select media to play. The stereo will now stream audio from your iPod.

How do I re charge battery with electrical plug


To charge the battery using your computer:
Connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your computer using the included iPod shuffle Dock. The computer must be turned on and not in sleep mode (some models of Macintosh can charge iPod shuffle while in sleep mode). When the battery is charging, the status light on iPod shuffle is orange. When the battery is fully charged, the status light turns green.
If you don't see the status light, iPod shuffle might not be connected to a high-power USB port. Try another USB port on your computer.

To charge the battery using an iPod USB Power Adapter If you do not have then you have to buy the same from Apple Store) 1 Connect the AC plug adapter to the power adapter (they might already be connected). 2 Plug the USB connector of the iPod shuffle Dock into the power adapter. 3 Plug the power adapter into a working electrical outlet. 4 Put iPod shuffle in the dock. You can disconnect and use iPod shuffle before it is fully charged.

Ipod nano blinks


I bought an Ipod shuffle 2nd generation yesterday, it charged all night and orange light was still blinking. Tried listening to songs and sometimes it would play but most times wouldn't. Took it back for exchange and same problem. Then I realized the problem is not with the USB plug or computer reoconizing ipod but in the docking itself. I applied pressure on the top side of docked Ipod and bottom of docking station and the computer recognized the Ipod. Release pressure and lose connection. The problem is that the docking station and earbuds do not connect with ipod and the fixes provided by apple doesn't address or fix this problem.
