Re: gen 3 nano and bose docking station
Have you tried another iPod on it?? I suspect that if you do, that one won't work either. If it's a Bose SoundDock then they are well known for having problems with the iPod connector getting loose. Try with another iPod. If results are the same, take your SoundDock back. Bose should exchange it straight away.

Maybe this could be the solution... Source: http://www.speakerstation.co.uk/ipod-speaker-docks-ct-87.html "... Important Note: iPods released since Sept 2008 (e.g.
Touch 2nd Gen, 4th Gen iPod Nano and iPod Classic 120 Gigabyte, iPhone
3g and onwards) have an updated dock connector that means older
revisions of speaker dock may not be able to charge these newer models
of iPod/iPhone. Older docks should play music from these newer models
with no problem. The problem with charging is due to Apple
removing support for 12v (firewire) charging on these new models of
iPod/iPhone. Only 5v (USB) charging is supported on these new models. ..."
This is true. The new iPod nano is not compatible with the original SoundDock. This only means that it won't charge the iPod's power. Audio should be okay. This is an Apple issue. They changed the way almost all of their iPods charge (except the iPod classic).
Bose can upgrade the SoundDock for their normal repair fee of $99. This would also you a new 1 year warranty.
The original SoundDock will not charge the iPod touch 2nd gen, or the iPhone 3G, or the new nano either. This is because Apple changed the way their new iPod products charge. (via USB only now)
There is 1 solution- Call Bose tech support. They can replace the 30 pin metal connector for a new one that will charge this. If this is not under warranty, it will cost $99, but it's worth it. New 1 year warranty, and compatibility with all iPods (except much older- non-clickwheel iPods)
It does that to my iPhone; if I want to charge I have to use a separate cable and run the audio into the aux. Defeats the whole purpose of a dock if you ask me, but I guess they never anticipated what they'd have to do to charge the new iPhone batteries back when they designed the pre-G3-phone docks.
I also have the same problem but now I think it's the type of I-Pod you use. Do you use the I-Pod 80 Gb video or the newer 160 Gb I-Pod with the cover flow etc. ? The documention of the HTD7001 says it's only support some I-Pods. I would know sure if I would have a type of Video I Pod wich is supported by the documentation
