JVC KS-PD100 iPod Interface Adapter (257KSPD100, sold separately). This
optional iPod Interface Adapter supports audio playback for the following
iPod models - iPod click-wheel (3rd gen), iPod photo (4th gen), iPod mini
(1st/2nd gen), iPod nano
(1st/2nd/3rd/4th gen), iPod video (5th gen), and iPod classic
(80/120/160GB). The KS-PD100 is not compatible with the iPod touch (1st/2nd/3rd
gen), iPod nano (5th gen), or iPhone (2G/3G/3GS). This iPod interface will also not charge
the iPod nano (4th generation). *Apple firmware updates may change
The issue is that the 4th Generation iPod takes far more energy to run than your 4gb iPod. Updating the firmware has nothing to do with it. It's the amount of energy/voltage that this new 8Gig unit takes to run. Think of it as a 4 cylinder verses an 8 cylinder engine. The 8 takes far more gas to run. Blessings,

not likely the new 4 gen Ipod has different pin set within its dock connector system for the video output which has made many 3rd party accessories no longer able to charge the ipod but it will still play music
I'm sorry, but the bottom line is that you cannot watch videos on the V55 with a 5th gen iPod. 4th gens work fine though. Apple made this change in their iPods after several aftermarket companies began losing money in their products not selling. In response, iPod apparently teamed up with those companies and installed a chip to "decode" the video content. You can hear audio, but see no video. It stinks, I know. I am just glad that I have a 4th gen video iPod.
However, I am posting here because I am looking through posts and blogs to find out how to fix my V55 as the screen is intermitently going bad.
