    Same problem here - it appears that many 5th Gen ipods are having this problem. Everything works fine minus the sound from both the headphone jack and auxiliary port on the bottom.

    Other threads recommended calling Apple's number to inquire about a replacement at 1-800-275-2273. I just tried, and because it is out of warranty they said there is nothing they can do. You may try anyway and see what happens.

    yes that sounds stupid. yes volume is all the way up. Aux port has no sound, cd has no sound. the only sound i get is from the radio.

    I don't know if its the exact same problem, but similar. It will play most of the song but will all of a sudden just stop playing, but not every song, it played free bird all the way through, go figure, but it wont even play take the money and run halfway through. I know it doesn't make any difference what song it is but I was just baffled that it would play a 7 minute plus song but not a song less than 3. I scroll through the inputs back to usb and it will resume. I just put it in about 5 hours ago, so maybe I can figure out something.

    I have jsut received a new ford with a sony 6000 CD with multiuchanger. The glovebox contains aux in and a usb port. I have 2 separate 5th gen ipods and i have tried attaching each to the usb port. When I do this, the ipod displays the Ford logo, with the text also reading "ok to disconnect". The card radio display lists all the songs, and even the seconds counting up on the current track... BUT NO SOUND. Both the ipods do exactly the same thing. I have to assume the connection is fine as the car radio sees all the tracks. I have no idea what else to try...

    I recently bought an Eclipse CD5100 with

    BODY { FONT-FAMILY:Verdana; FONT-SIZE:10pt }
    P { FONT-FAMILY:Verdana; FONT-SIZE:10pt }
    DIV { FONT-FAMILY:Verdana; FONT-SIZE:10pt }
    TD { FONT-FAMILY:Verdana; FONT-SIZE:10pt }

    iPC-106 iPOD adaptor. When I connect my iPOD (160Gb Classic) it's recognised by the head unit and the 'playing' symbol is displayed on the iPod but no sound comes out & I can't scroll through or change tracks using the head unit. To make matters worse, the iPod remains 'frozen' after disonnecting and I have to do a 'reset' to get it working again. If I tehn re-connect to the Eclipse head unti it works OK. Weird eh?

Hi I have a Kenwood KDC-W5541u and the same problem: iPod appears to connect correctly and tracks appear to be playing, but no sound comes out. I checked that the iPod and cable worked fine with other devices, and concluded that the kenwood was the problem. I found a tiny "reset" button beside the headphone jack, which I pushed in, and when I turned the system back on, it was working again.

I have a CDA-9855 Alpine head unit. It worked just fine when removed from my prior vehicle (05 VW Golf). I just installed it in an 01 Land Rover Discovery II using a wiring harness adapter so no cutting or...

it sounds like you have the blue wire (antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on) turning on an external amplifier in your rover. the antenna remote wire turns off when you leave tuner mode.

My Pioneer car stereo recognizing the songs on my IPod 3G

I had this exact same problem. Here is how I just figured out how to fix it. First of all, my friend as an iTouch as well, so I plugged his iTouch into my DEH-P4000UB, similar to your 3100UB, and it actually worked and played music. So I went to my Music then selected a song and pressed pause. I turned on the car and then plugged the USB cable into my iTouch, exactly the same as yours. When I replugged my iTouch into my deck it gave me a different error this time, Error-19. Refreshing but still frustrating. So I turned off the car, unplugged the USB cable and tried it one more time. This time I selected "Repeat" on the song, don't ask me why, but this is exactly what I just did. I turned on the car, plugged the USB and it worked!!!

I understand your frustration and I've been dealing with it for a while now. So hopefully this helps. Good Luck!

USB-IPOD play is stuck. The receiver reads the ipod and tells me what song is up, but will not play. No error message and was working perfectly with same ipod before.

I have the exact same damn problem. It tempermental, whenever it wants to. I never had a problem until a few days ago. Sometimes I turn on my car and it will play a few songs and than when a next one starts it stops, sometimes right from the get go it won't work. Same thing as you though, it displace the song name but doesn't play it. Its so frusterating.

My usb car stereo dosnt play all the songs on my kingston

Not every car stereo can play every song in a usb.

This deppends on how many songs and how many folders you have in your USB, regardless of the USB's capacity. My car stereo for example, can only play about 50 songs pero folder and i think it tops at 9 folders.

Try to organize your music in folders and change the names of the songs taking every "·$&%/&$/)(=)(( Symbol and non regular character out.

Or better, get your car's manual and it might say how many songs it can play. i think mine cant read over 1.5gb. if it doesnt say, you just have to try and work with it till you get it figured out.

The last thing i try and it might work:
Cut everything out of your USB, format it and then paste everything back this refreshes the USB and sometimes it works.

Sorry about my english.

I have a jvc kd-g720 stereo in my car and when I plug my iPod into the usb port it says "do not disconnect" and even though i have about 2,000 songs on my iPod the stereo will only play the same 49 ones in...

if you are plugging your ipod into the usb port of the kd-g720 it won't play all your songs because this particular radio only plays mp3s through the usb port. ipods play both mp3s and mp4s. so those 49 songs you're hearing are the mp3s on your ipod. in order to play all the songs on your ipod you must buy the cord that plugs in the back of the radio that will connect to your ipod. sorry for the bad news man. i had the same thing happen to me.

When I plug my iPhone into the USB it doesn't

ANSWER: The headphone jack will not charge your iPod. Only the USB will charge your iPod. However, the headphone jack will play music, but the USB will not play music from your iPod.
REASON: The headphone jack does not provide any power to charge your iPod. It isnly has enough power to recieve a music signal.
REASON WHY YOU CANNOT PLAY IPOD THROUGH THE USB: The USB is only intended to be used with a flash drive or external hard drive with a folder structure containing either .mp3 or .wma files. The way the USB works on the system is that it reads all the files and folders on the entire device and will say "reading" until it reads all the files and folders. This should only take a few seconds but if there is tons of files it may take longer. Main problem: An iPod contains much more than just music files and folders - it contains an entire operating system. Worse, the operating system which the iPod uses is protected, keeping other devices except for iTunes from reading the music files.
TO PLAY MUSIC FROM USB (NOT IPOD): You will need to use a flash drive or external hard drive with your USB. This device can only contain music, and the music must be organized into folders. Your iPod will not work. However, you can use Auxiliary input using a cable which both ends are 1/4" headphone jacks, one end going to the iPod and other plugged into your stereo.
SOLUTION: To charge your iPod, you need to plug it into USB. However, to play music, you need to plug your iPod into the headphone jack.
Good Luck! - Chris Proia
