Could it be a USB reader for MP3's on a USB drive to play on your stereo?

Right, I believe it's an input, not a charger.

Mine charges my new ipod nano but not my wifes older version. I was told that the Apple products changed the charging voltage and or the pin location, ( I forget what I was told). Nice teardrop in your avatar, I would love to build one some day.

I have an older Iphone that sometimes charges and sometimes does not! How's that for an answer? What I do is when I plug it in I select the USB input on the radio which then seems to make the car recognize that there's a device plugged in and then it will charge. I usually have a Nano plugged in there and that device ALWAYS charges fine without having to do anything to it.
