    ipod wont play through ipod speakers
    it will charge it, but it wont play through the speakers,
    when i press play on the dock, nothing happens
    im thinking it might have to do with the ipod touch being turned on before i turn on the dock or something, i dont know
    can someone walk me through it step by step:
    ex. 1. put ipod in dock with ipod turned off
    2. turn on dock
    3. turn on ipod
    etc

    Is your Ipod supported with the dock?

    Turn on your ipod. Put it into the dock. Make sure the dock and ipod are both on. Then play some music.

    It's the Dock. It's not supporting the 3gen ipod.

    Do you have another Ipod that you can try with?

    Use the dock adapter so it stays in without randomly disconnecting.
