If you connect iPod nano to a USB port and it doesn’t work correctly Â A USB 2.0 port is recommended to connect iPod nano. USB 1.1 is significantly slower than USB 2.0 and is not recommended. If your Windows PC doesn’t have a USB 2.0 port, you can purchase and install a Windows-certified USB 2.0 card and install it. For more information, go to www.apple.com/ipod.
Â To charge the battery, you must connect iPod nano to a high-power USB 2.0 or FireWire port on your computer. Connecting iPod nano to a USB port on your keyboard will not charge the battery. You can connect iPod nano to a FireWire port using the optional iPod Dock Connector to FireWire Cable for charging the iPod nano only. Transferring information to iPod nano using FireWire is not supported.
Â If you’re connecting iPod nano to a portable or laptop computer using the iPod Dock Connector to USB 2.0 Cable, connect the computer to a power outlet before connecting iPod nano.
