I just bought a Apple Universal Dock + Remote and has connected my ipod nano 5th gen.

But I can't see if the remote is working. I have connected the dock to my PC using the usb cable, and i can update the music on the ipod, but the remote doesn't seem to be working.

I have done the pairing "menu"+"fastforward" for 6 seconds or more.

Shouldn't it be able to turn up the music in my PC speakers using the remote? NOTHING happends when i press any of the buttons.

What use is the remote for??
Please tell me how to check that it is working, and what i can use it for.
