    everything is hooked up right. we have checked the speakers and everything. every wire is connected in the right spot. when i play a cd or the radio the speakers work. but the aux wont play the right speakers. the usb wont even load my friends ipod, he has the newer ipod touch, it wont even acknowledge that anything was hooked into it. when i put my ipod touch in, the first type that came out. it will load for a little bit but stop and freeze.

Sounds like a loose connection on the aux input. boss has a pretty bad reputation for there usb / aux connections inside the unit. also if your right rear and right dont play on anything its bc you have them turned down. or if this is recently installed they got mixed up. please let me know more details so i can better help you

    it sounds like a defective unit then im sorry for the bad news one last thing you can try is using a diff aux cable into the aux spot and spin the cable around by not having the sound on the right side indicates a connection issue. (obviously) but thats the issue. sorry for hte bad news bro. hope the aux cable idea works.
    good luck and sorry i couldnt help needed them thumbs up lol

None of these comments are correct. I had this problem. The auxiliary input uses video too. You need to get a microphone to RCA connector for your iPad or Phone side, and use the 3 line RCA plug provided for the AUX in. Just connect white and red rca, and leave the yellow video input alone.

Usb is always loading on boss bv9993

Yes, I just got this unit and installed it today. The reason for this is this unit isn't capable of playing the ipods. You have to put the music on a flash drive to use the usb function. Which to me wasn't a big deal because I only use my ipod in my car anyway. The bv9999bi is the newer model of this unit and can play ipods. But i wasn't going to send this one back to get that one cause then I would have to pay for reinstallation when I could just put the songs on a flash drive. I love this unit btw.

I cant get my ipod to play through my boss bv9970

The only way the BV9970 will work with an ipod is by using a male male phono lead, from the headphone socket in the ipod to the AUX in on the front of the stereo.

I have a 9560 and when I plug my ipod touch into the usb port the system will go to the usb screen and the load bar at the bottom will progress about halfway before it just stops and goes back to the radio...

First i recommend you to check with the manufacturer or dealer, the compatibility with your iOS version, second, try backing up your iPod and re-loading some songs, if it works, then the problem is with some song's information...

Connecting an iPod to a HT-Q100 Home Cinema System

If you connect an iPod via USB, the system will treat it as a hard drive and will use its (very basic) on-screen system to display your tracks.

I found the best way to get a result is to use a 3.5 (stereo) jack to RCA phono stereo input into the auxillary input on the back (side). To hear your iPod, select AUX on your Samsung and then select and play on your iPod. Bobs your uncle!!
