Hooking up an MP3 to Alpine CDA-9805 head unit

I've hooked up auxilary cables to the back of my CDA-9805 head unit, so I can plug my ipod in and play whats on it through the car stereo. The idea is to play my ipod (MP3 player) through the CDA-9805 head unit.
PROBLEM: The Alpine CDA-9805 only has 2 modes, Radio and CD. Because of this, I'm unable to play music off my ipod (MP3 player) through my car stereo. I could always spend hours burning 100s and 100s of CDs... But who wants to do that?
There must be an alternative way to hook it up, right? 
Thank you.

What's your problemI bought a used car that has an alpine cda 9805 radio. It has an auxillary cable that appears can hook up to my I pod nano. I can't find the function/ mode on the radio to g

The source/power button in the top left corner changes the mode. Press the button until the aux appears. The auxillary device must be plugged in to register on the stereo.

When i hook up my ipod to the kcu cable nothings happening and i cant even find an ipod source channel on the head unit itself

Is there an option for AUX or Auxilary input anywhere on the head? Try switching the input source through all possible settings while playing the ipod and ensuring the volume is on, to see if it plays.

How do i hook up mt ipod

To hook up your ipod to an a/v reciever you need a stereo mini to male rca cable. You plug the mini side into you ipods head phone jack, and the male rca's left and right(usually red and white colored plugs) to an auxilary input on the a/v reciever.-Example, tape, aux, sa/cd.
Change the input on the reciever to correspond with where you connected the ipod
Ensure the ipod is powered on and playing with the volume turned up.

Auxilary RCA inputs have no volume control

Your problem stems from the fact that the CDA-7892 is not equipped with an RCA aux-input jack. If you're plugged into RCA connectors at the back of the head unit, they're outputs, not inputs. The sound you hear is just feeding back through the outputs and into the head unit's amplifier. If you want to play your iPod through this head unit, you need to purchase either the auxiliary input adapter (KCA-121B) or iPod adapter (KCA-420i).

Alpine Ipod/Stereo Error 1 message

my alpine cda 9856 only displays that message when my ipod dies. so your ipod pobably dies then the head unit recharges it enough in the time your resetting it that it can play again. :)
