Alpine searching for ipod...

I just bought a 80gig Ipod awhile ago and my Alpine deck is not finding the Ipod. It worked fine on my 30 gig Ipod without any issues. I have searched the databases for problems or limitations on this and have downloaded the updates for my ipod and to no avail, problem was not fixed.

    I have a 30 gig ipod that worked fine with the alpine 9881 and then one day it wouldn't let me search anything. When I updated the ipod it had the same problem. All my friends ipods work fine with it.




    What should I do?

I have an early Ipod classic 60 gb that won't workwith my Alpine

Try looking in you itunes folder for a previous version of the software for your ipod if it worked before. The old copies are saved, unless you deleted those folders also. If you deleted them try searching the web for the old software.

When I scroll through my ipod on the head unit, the scrolling freezes at a certain point everytime, then I get an error 01 message. The ipod seems to work fine, but the head unit freezes, then doesn't read...

When was the last time you updated your iPod's software? Also watch out how you break your playlist down, because Alpines will hang up at around 230 or so... I also have seen bad cords but that isn't you. Have you tried resetting the deck?? To do that take the face plate off and you will see a little hole that is red like a freckle. Get a pen and try resetting it and see what happens, that should do it. sometimes though iPods are the problems. Get a buddy's and try theirs and see if theirs hangs up?? I keep 3 80gig classics in my shop for to test the head units... Mark @ Sounds Good to Me Tempe, AZ [email protected]

Alpine deck ipod not working

Why don't you stop complaining and buy another iPod. They're only a couple hundred dollars.

No sound with USB and IPOD Apline IDA-X100

You connected your blue alpine wire (power antenna) to your blue wire (amplifier remote on) on the BMW harness adapter. You need to undo this, amputate your blue alpine wire (because your E36 has no power antenna) and connect the alpine blue wire with white stripe (remote power) to your blue wire on the harness adapter.

When you switch source from the radio, alpine is shutting off your amplifier through the connected power antenna wire. Since you're not listening to the radio anymore, it sees no reason why it should give it power.

Screen says searching when iPod connected to Alpine CDA-9847

Check your ipod to see if it is shuffle mode. Alpine doesn't document this but they have a bug that causes the problem that you describe. If the ipod is in shuffle mode the Alpine gets confused.

Free software to DOWNLOAD my 80gig classic ipod to my new computer

went to www.ephpod.com and got free trial of MUSIC RESCUE from the forum after spending most of the day reading threads (wanted to be sure the "trial offer" didn't sting me half-way through a 20 gig download.)
The ephpod's software is the easiest to find, but one of the threads said his new 80gig classic ipod (same as mine!) crashed.
Somewhere there's an ipod compatibility chart, make sure your ipod matches.
There's several different software packages available, with "limited features" but music rescuer offered full features except for annoying pop-ups. Every 50 tunes it said to make this annoyance stop simply donate 10 pounds (british.) i clicked the mouse alot more than 40x finding this!
Anyway, download the help screen also (read it twice!), and it's basically idiot proof.
There's also a book, How to do everything with yout ipod and itunes by Guy Hart-Davis published by McGraw-Hill/Osbourne, that's basically an IPOD for DUMMIES

CDA-9885 Alpine No audio from Ipod - CD Playback not working

Disconnect whatever is attached to the BLUE wire at the back of the Alpine deck. Re-connect it to the BLUE/WHITE wire instead. This should solve your problem.

IPod will not work.

restoring factory settings won't revert the player back to previous ipod software. Check with the alpine website product support and see which ipod software versions are compatible with the car deck you installed. I would think the latest version would be supported. then go to the apple website and download the most recent version of itunes that alpine says is compatible. connect your pod and open itunes. upgrade the pod to that itunes version and try it again with the car deck.
