Unhappy DICE ipod help!!!

hey guys, I have a dice ipod player which has worked perfectly, however I switched to a brand new ipod nano and now i get "accessory not supported" every time I try to change a song. Is there any thing I can do about this?

5v cable needed

It sounds like you need to upgrade your iPod interface cable. The older dice units were designed for use with the then current 12v iPod models, however the newer iPods use 5v. DICE remedied this with new interface cables. See here ~~~~> http://diceelectronics.com/dock-5v.html

good luck

BMW should have incorporated a plug as a standard option!

My Ride: 2002 BMW 330Ci
Just put one in this week. Corporate CD radio, ipod Nano 5th gen, 2002 330Cic. Updated firmware on both before installing. First time I used it, it went wacko after i pushed preset button 3. Froze up. Had to disconnect wiring in trunk and try again. PNow playing tunes and can advance one tune at a time off steering wheel. Pushing preset buttons doesn't seem to do anything. I have installed a variety of these type of units in other vehicles, Chevy Silverado, Mazda3, Volvo V70, Ford F150 with no problems. This one, not so much. Hopefully playing with it a little and searching for discussions or calling the manufacturer will allow me to access it's full potential.
