Brand new iPod touch 4th gen will not sit on dock of Sony Dream Machine

model ICF -C1iPMK2
I even wasted money on the three pack of inserts to ensure my touch was resting properly
I have no idea why it won't rest down on the dock - it is like it's two different sizes of 30 pin connectors? is anyone else having this problem? I don't want to be too forceful with it for fear of breaking something irreplaceable

Im having the same problems with the latest ipod touch not sitting into a bose portable sounddock.
Sure, the portable sounddock has an aux port in the back which I can use once I find an audio cable with male ends on both sides.
After reading this thread, I took an x-acto knife and tried to remove/thin the piece of silver plastic at the back of the ipod touch. didnt help much until I took the same knife and tried to thin the grey plastic innard of the sounddock connector. That worked.
so basically, i removed a thin bit of grey plastic from the inside of the male connector on the sounddock.
was worth a try.
I've also emailed Bose support. They're generally very helpful with these things and the last time when I upgraded from an ipod mini to ipod touch, I called them and they sent me (for free) a set of new dock inserts for the ipod touch.

  • My brand new iPod Touch 4th generation will not sync with iTunes on my Windows Vista computer!  Please help!

    I have tried every trick in the book and read every thread on why my version of Windows Vista will not allow me to get at the iTunes Store.  I cannot even get this new iPod Touch to sync with iTunes. 
    I've rebooted, soft restart, hard restart, removed iTunes and re-installed iTunes.  Nada...nothing!
    Does anyone else have the same issue and can they offer me a solution?

    I am having the same problem (lost in back-up purgatory) on both my iPhone 4 and my iPad2.  I am running Windows XP.
    I have tried everything I've seen suggested on various support communities, with no success.
    I have gotten used to having to find a windows workaround everytime Apple updates iTunes, and this time it is especially frustrating.  
    I don't have any solutions, and I am responding to all of these types of messages in hopes of finding something that will work for me.
    One person was able to work through it by deleting all of the previous iTunes backup files.  I'm trying that now.  4 hours into it, and it does not seem to be working......

  • My ipod touch 4th gen. will not allow me to adjust volume with my speaker, but will with headphones. How do i fix this?

    My ipod touch 4th gen. will not allow me to adjust volume with my speaker, but will with headphones. How do i fix this?

    - Try cleaning out/blowing out the headphone jack. Try inserting/removing the plug a dozen times or so. There is a little switch in the headphone jack that disconnects the speaker when the headphone jack is inserted.
    Try the following to rule out a software problem
    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iPod touch: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Reset all settings
    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.
    - Restore from backup
    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.
    - Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store. Seems you have a bad headphone jack or other hardware problem

    My ipod touch 4th gen will not turn on, i have held the power and home buttons, i have plugged my ipod into itunes and tried again, yet nothing happens, what should i do?

    Try:                           
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - Try another cable
    - Try on another computer                            
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • New ipod suffle 4th gen will not sync with cd import

    my new ipod suffle 4th gen will not sync with cd import,through itunes,other computer has no itunes

    I'm not sure how the "other computer" is relevant, but on the computer with iTunes, you probably need to update the iPod's settings for automatic syncing, or load the new songs from CD manually.
    In iTunes, if the sidebar (along left side of window) is hidden, from the menu bar, under View, select Show Sidebar.  The shuffle appears in the sidebar, under DEVICES, when connected.  Select it there.  The shuffle's Summary screen is shown to the right.  There is a checkbox for Manually manage music there.  Is that setting currently checked or not checked? 
    If it is checked, your iPod is set to add and remove songs manually.  It does not use automatic syncing to update content.  This is how to manually add and remove songs from an iPod.
    To add songs manually...  Show a song list in iTunes.  For example, select Music under LIBRARY in the sidebar, to show your main music library list.  Drag a song from the song list to the iPod in the sidebar.  You can do this with more than one song selected, such as the songs from that "CD import."  Alternately, right-click on the selection and choose the command Add to Playlist -> [name of your iPod].
    To remove songs manually...  Click on the small triangle to the left of the iPod's name (in the sidebar) to drop down its content list, indented below the iPod.  Click on Music there.  The list of songs on the iPod is shown to the right.  Select the song you want to remove and press Delete on the keyboard.  You can do this with more than one song selected.
    NOTE:  If Manually manage music is currently not checked, your iPod is set to use automatic syncing.  Please post back for info on setting up or updating the iPod's automatic sync settings.  When automatic syncing is enabled, you make iTunes responsible for keeping your iPod "in sync" with your iTunes library.

  • IPod Touch 4th Gen. will not turn on!

    My iPod touch 4th Generation will not turn on. I've only had it since September and have barely used it. I plug it into my computer and it doesn't charge, it doesn't turn on even with a low battery symbol... my computer doesn't even recognize it as being plugged in. When I plug a 3rd generation in, it charges and is recognized by my computer, so I am almost 100% sure it's not a problem with my computer.
    I've tried holding down both the home key and the power key at the same time and nothing happens...
    Help please!

    Welcome to the discussions,
    does it charge using the adapter? If yes, charge it for at least 10min, then connect in recovery mode, shown here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808

  • I have a brand new Ipod touch and it will not sync.

    I have a brand new ipod touch and I cannot get it to synch with my itunes.  I have two other Ipod Nano's that will synch up just fine.  The computer has windows XP with the latest service pack on it.  It does not recognize it as a device in windows, but sees my other two ipods.  I have the latest itunes software on it.  I even uninstalled it and reinstalled per the apple web site.  I connected the ipod touch to another cpmputer and the usb port sees it as a device just fine.  What do I need to do to this thing to get this computer to see it?

  • Can't connect brand new iPod touch 4th gen to iTunes, please help!

    I just got a new iPod touch, 16 gig 4th generation. I'm going through the setup process. Once I get to the option to connect through a network, I hit a problem. My internet at home requires a MAC address to be "invited" into the network before I can connect, however I can't get the MAC address until I complete setup!
    So I choose the "Connect to iTunes" option instead. My computer recognizes that there is an iPod connected to it, but iTunes won't pick it up. There is nothing under "Devices".
    What do I do?? ):

    I just retried a step I missed earlier in the articles before and ran into a problem here:
    #5 Verify that the apple mobile devi usb driver is installed
    > for windows 7
    > if the apple mobile device usb driver is not listed
    > if only Apple iPod appears
    > for windows 7
    I went through all these steps until #8: Click OK in the "Install from Disk" dialog. At this point it tries to load for a bit and I get this message:
    "Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device.
    Windows found driver software for your device but encountered an error while attempting to install it. (Apple Mobile Device USB Driver)
    Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37)"
    As for your reply, I did indeed already try removing and reinstalling all the Apple programs with unfortunately no effect.
    When I do the sync test, I get that one or more things failed: iTunes Helper not running and No iPod found.

    - Try another cable. Some 5G iPods were shipped with Lightning cable that were either initially defective or failed after short use.
    - Try another charging source
    - Inspect the dock connector on the iPod for bent or missing contacts, foreign material, corroded contacts, broken, missing or cracked plastic.
