I just installed a car stereo that has a USB port and my IPOD will not work. I tried another IPOD and it worked. Tried to upgrade the software on my IPOD and it says that I have latest version. The IPOD touch will work but the clasic will not. HELP

You upgraded to the new itunes and thats would be your downfall. Uninstall itunes and go back to the itunes version that worked. Don't upgrade just because that stupid icon tells you to. If things are working, then don't fix it or in your case don't upgrade.
Also, try plugging your ipod into a different USB port on your computer.
USB wires are universal, so No you shuouldn't need another wire. My friend had a similar problem with his new AUDI 58 plate. (shares the same "VAG" parts bin as your car)
He found that his new ipod was not compatible, and Audi said they need to upgrade their software. Audi dealer Re-imbursed him the cost of ipod.
check with your Dealer and find out which versions of ipod ARE compatable. i've noticed quite a few things with Ipod compatibility dont support the iphone. & now there's a new iphone just to make things more difficult. Good Luck.
The newest versions of the Iphone uses USB charging only, while older generations of (any) Ipods used firewire for charging. First generation Iphone and Ipod Touch could be charged with either method.
Most docks historically used the firewire charging method, making them incompatible with all but 1st generation Iphones.
You need a new cable/charger that charges with the USB method.
The newer generation iPods don't always work with the iPod connection kits in a lot of the car stereos. Some of the problem is due to the fact that the new generation iPods have been changed and the stereos were manufactured before the players were released so they are not compatible. I bought my girlfriend a Pioneer car stereo with an iPod control cable, and it works fine with her Nano (not the new generation Nano) and it works with my iPod Photo 60 GB but it does not work with my iPhone 2G and I read that it is not compatible with the new Nanos or the Classics. Check with Jensen to see if the model you have is compatible with the Classic and see if there is a solution to the issue. It may not be compatible with the new video portion of the Classic firmware.
