Question about Belkin Tunebase FM with ClearScan for All iPods with Bonus USB Sync/Charge Cable, Auxiliary-in Cable... (F8Z959-CC)

1 Answer

3G compatability I just bought one of these. Works like a charm. And what's more it works with an iPhone 3G. I am sure that you are aware that many older iPod adapters and in car adapters do not work with the 3G. That's because Apple have changed the method of charging, or more specifically they have changed the connector. Older adapters cannot supply power to the 3G. So, whilst this Belkin adapter does charge the 3G, I have heard of another possible problem. Apparently some in car adapters provide 10V as the charging voltage, whilst the 3G only requires 5V. Clearly supplying the 3G with 10V would damage it eventually. Can anyone verify the truth of this? And also can anyone tell me if the Belkin Tunebase supplies 10V or 5V? I searched on the net for the specifications but could find nothing. Many thanks. Tony

When I plug in my Ipod to the inMotion im310 portable speaker the Ipod screen says it is not supported, and it worked this morning.


Check the pins on the speaker and on the plugin on the iPod, that's the problem usually. Also, check if the iPod is truly compatible, even if it worked before it may not be. I have seen car chargers for say a 2G iPhone work for a bit then say incompatible, it happens. Here are the compatible iPods for the iM310:

Plays and charges
iPod mini;
iPod nano 1G, 2G, 3G, 4G;
iPod classic 3G, 4G, 5G, 5.5G, 6G;
iPod touch 1G, 2G

Good luck!

Compatibility issues iPhone 3G - JBL On Stage IIIp


hi there, believe it or not, apple has put a authentication chip into newer devices. It won't allow you to play music or display video on devices that are old. Apple wants you to go out and buy new accessories for the new stuff to make more money. My suggestion is to sell it on eBay and use the money to get a newer compatible dock with your iPhone.

When i put my IPhone 3G on dock it said that this accesory wasnt made for IPhone


This means your dock is not compatible with the iPhone 3G, or slightly compatible. I've had this problem with an FM transmitter in my car, I can use it to transmit my tunes to whatever station but I cannot use the charge features of the FM transmitter. Consult your manual for the dock about compatibility.

Getting error message software not compatible with IPod


This compatibility issue is caused by the same change with the Apple Dock Connecter introduced with the iPhone 3G. Inside the iPod / iPhone Dock Connecter are 30 metal pins. Previous iPods and iPhones allowed for charging either over pins reserved for the USB connection or pins reserved for the obsolete Firewire connection.
While Apple apparently announced this upcoming change to manufactures of “Made for iPod” accessories back in 2005, Apple only formerly discontinued Firewire charging support with the most recent iPods. New iPods and iPhones can only charge via the USB pin.
As such, there is no way that a software update can fix this issue in the future; this is truly a modification in iPod hardware.
