I read your reply for the no video out from the Ipod Classic. I also had my Ipod Classic working perfectly with the video out on my Kenwood KVT-617 radio. Now when I updated the firmware to 1.1.1, I only get audio and no video. Can you tell me how to rollback my firmware back to 1.0.2? I have Windows XP and can't figure it out.
Go to C:\Documents and Settings\*your user name*\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates. Delete the firmware you don't want, in your case it'll be "iPod_188.8.131.52". Turn off the internet (turn off the router/whatever). Connect the iPod, then click Restore. As iTunes cannot connect to the internet and get the newest firmware (1.1.1), it will use the latest firmware in that folder, rolling you back to 1.0.2.

Hi, now, when you restored your 80 gB classic, did you upgrade the firmware to 1.1.2? If so, do not. I refuse as my firmware 1.1.1 works the ipod great and the only trouble started (twice) on trying to update the firmware. Try a hard factory reset:support.apple.com/kb/HT1339
Then, charge fully with AC charger (this was recommended to me twice in an Apple store)
After wards, use USB to connect to your computer and do not allow it to upgrade to 1.1.2
(See incidental article about ipod touch: rupertgee.wordpress.com/2007/12/02/downgraderestore-ipod-touch-firmware-to-version-111-using-os-x/ this might even work on ipod classic - you've got nothing to loose); also have a look at Apple's updates: apple.com/support/downloads/
This seemed to work for me:
1. Download latest version of iTunes 2. disconnect from internet (I did this by removing my wireless adapter). 3. Put iPod into disk mode (hold select and play until display says "disk mode" at the top). 4. Connect iPod to computer 5. You should be prompted to restore, click yes. 6. Message will appear saying can't connect to internet, do you want to restore to latest version "2.0.1" instead? (Something along those lines). 7. It should start restoring and work this time.

Normally they say this is a HDD failure but i took off the HDD and put in to ipod use to be 30 gb restore the firmware and same HDD worked fine on ipod. I am guessing the firmware is quits reading the HDD every once in a while.
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.
