thank you for your help

Just got my new iPod in the mail.  I'm a new Spotify user and signed up for Premium.  I've followed every tech note I could find and none work.  Spotify does not recognize the iPod under Devices.

I'm experiencing the same thing.  I've got a new iPod nano 7th generation (the one released a couple of weeks ago with the new lightning connector).  I've got spotify premium and am running version 0.8.5.1333.g822e0de8.

 

I've wiped the nano and reset to factory defaults (software version 1.0.1) with itunes and ensured that "open itunes with this ipod is connected" is unchecked.  I disconnect the nanon, shut itunes down and start up spotify.  Then I connect the nano to the lightning usb connector, but nothing happens in spotify.  No devices appear, it just says "iPod   Connect your IPod with a USB cable to let Spotify sync your MP3s".

 

I'm guessing that the 7th generation nano isn't currently supported (maybe lightning connector related)?  Can anyone confirm or deny that the 7th gen nano should work with Spotify?

Same issue here too.  I bought the new iPod nano and it simply does not connect via USB.  There is no option to connect wirelessly on the Nano, which seems to have solved the problem with earlier versions of different ipods. 

 

The model number is A1446, FCC ID :BCGA1446A, Serial number: DCYJJBRFFOGV.

 

Presumably Apple are trying to lock out Spotify, or Spotify haven't got around to ensuring the 7th generation devices hook in. 

 

Can anyone from Spotify tell us what's going on?

 

Thanks

Hey guys!

 

I have escalated this topic to the forum staff for you. Hopefully someone will either be able to clarify what is going on or talk to the development team to get this fixed.

Hi guys,

Before I can escalate this further, I just need to get a few more details from you...

- Are you all using the new iPod nano with the lightning adaptor?
- What version of the Spotify application are you using on your computer?

Thanks for your patience here. The more info we can collect, the better.

Hi guys,

Thanks for getting back to me about this. I've just reported the issue, I'll keep you updated on any developments.

The basic troubleshooting step for iPod nano's here is disconnecting, then reconnecting the device to your computer. I know it's basic, but have you guys all tried this?
