Why is my iPod remote not working?


Most likely, the remote is not pushed in all the way. Push the plug into the iPod firmly, making sure you hear it click (a slight clockwise twist while pressing it in sometimes helps). Apple has published an AppleCare Knowledge Base document on the issue: iPod:// Remote Buttons Do Not Work Updated: 12|20|02
