My head unit(cde-9881) and ipod(5th gen. 30Gb w/video) worked fine for a couple of weeks but now head unit searches for ipod forever. Ipod charges while plugged in but head unit just says "SEARCHING". I have tried :updating ipod version1.2.3, resetting head unit and ipod, plugging in other ipod and it works fine, and cleaning connections. What else can I try?

I have an Alpine head unit and a 30gb iPod Classic, it used to play through the stereo but now it just charges it, and on the head unit it says searching and won't find anything, I reset my iPod...


What model Alpine do you have? Have you gone into the setup menu and poke around and see if you have a setting (AUX +) and if you do turn it off and see. Than if that doesn't do the trick if you have an Alpine dealer close by see if you can "borrow" a KCA-422 full speed iPod cable and quickly plug that in and if it works than it is the cable. But if it still does not recognize the iPod it is a problem in the head unit and needs to be repaired..

I want to know which generation is the Ipod 30G model A1136, thanks


There are two 5th gen iPods, A1136 model is the older 2005 model, not the later 2006 model.

Here is Apples link: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1353#ipodfifth2 which will show the differences, but not by model number. The reason I know this model number is the first 5th gen 2005 is because I have one. Also older 2005 should have '2005' engraved on rear.

I have a CDE-9872 and it wont pick up my ipod touch


Add Alpine's optional "Full Speed" connection cable and you'll be able to use the CDE-9872 to control your iPod. -Crutchfields website

This is compatible with first and second generation iPods touch.
fyi- if you have a mini-stereo aux in jack on the deck you can connect a ipod touch compatible mini stereo cable to the earphone jack of your ipod.

Ipod video 5th gen issue with downloading music


You should try using a different USB cable as it's very possible the cable is damaged. If that's not the problem, the logic board is probably defective and you can either replace it if you're comfortable enough opening your iPod or sell the iPod listing the defects on eBay.
