I’m in need of a bit of iPod help. I have posted my issue at MacOSX.com and Apple’s site with no answers.

I have a 20 gig iPod that does photos and music. It works great, however if I try to set it on the dock, and then use the line out in the back of the dock to my speakers, it’ll only play for about 90 seconds (or so) and then it’ll go silent. The iPod will still be playing, but the speakers won’t omit any sound.

Now I can live without my docks line out, but I got a Bose SoundDock for Christmas and it does the same thing. 🙁

I got my wife a Nano for her birthday and that seems to have no issues so it must be my iPod.

I’ve restored my iPod (complete erase) and it didn’t help. I also ran disk utility to see what that’d find and it found nothing. Any ideas? I’ll take it to the Apple store if necessary, but I’m afraid they’ll charge me to fix whatever this issue is.

Other than this one issue, I have no other iPod issues and I’m perfectly happy with it.
