Hi,
I just a IPOD Nano.  I had a couple of questions about setting it up.

First, do I have to install iTunes in order to get this to work?

If not, can I just plug in the USB cable and let it charge thru my PC and how do I disconnect it if I don't install iTunes?

How do you use the dock connecter?  I can't figure that one out?

Hi Arthur,

Thanks for replying to my post.

Okay, so in order to copy music files from a CD or online and play them on my IPOD, I need iTunes?  The same is true for pictures or video as well?

Initially, when I plugged in my IPOD, I got a found new hardware error, but it seems to be charging okay now??

I am still confused by the dock connector?  Do I need some other adapter to work with this dock connector?  I do not see how the IPOD plugs into the dock connector, that is why I'm wondering if there is another adapter that is required.  The number on the dock connector shows the number 13.

thanks for the help and information.

I understand everything now.

It looks like I have the universal dock connector.  It does not appear it can sit up on my desk and for that matter I don't see how the ipod connects using this dock connector.

I guess if I need a dock connector that I need to purchase one from Apple.

Everything else makes sense.

Thanks again for the help.  I sincerely appreciate it.
