Screen says searching when iPod connected to Alpine CDA-9847
Last week my iPod worked fine with the deck (Alpine CDA-9847). Now when I connect the iPod to the radio the radio screen says searching and the Apline screen doesn't display on the iPod. The only thing I have done to troubleshoot is to reset the radio… that didn't work

the alpine should recognize it as a "changer" when you select the source; ie: radio, CD, changer. Sounds simple, but have you turned up the volume on the iPod?
The Alpine adapter is $100, but works great, you can totally control all your iPods functions, and it displays all song info on the Alpine decks display.
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.
