Need Help to Transfer Music from IPOD to Radio

I have the 430 Radio. I want to transfer music from my IPOD Nano to radio. But when I plug IPOD into front USB (on radio face), & touch "Front USB" & "Add Music Files" on radio screen, it reads "No Supported Files Found." When I plug it into center console, radio reads "Reading USB" & then it plays songs on IPOD without any problem. Just can't transfer music.
Am I doing something wrong?
P.S.
Dealer upgraded software awhile ago.

iPod files are .AAC files, you need to convert the songs on your computer to .MP3 then put them on a portable jump drive and transfer them to your radio that way...

...I could be wrong

iTunes can convert the AAC files to MP3 but you have to do it on each song.

I haven't looked into it, but can you upgrade the hard drive space?

I just bought a '12 Challenger with the 730N and I added about 1200 songs all in .AAC format from iTunes... I did it with a USB jump drive though. If anyone finds out how to do it from the iPod itself, I would be interested in knowing how. However, it could be different than yours since its not the 430...

I believe you can, but IIRC the computer will only recognize up to a certain size---80 or 120GB? Can't remember.

And solid state is your friend in a car. Bumps will destroy a standard HDD over time.
