IPod no longer works with car stereo since upgraded MBA & iTunes

My iPod classic has worked just fine connected to my car stereo since i bought it last june. I just bought a new Macbook Air (OS 10.7.3) & installed ITUNES 10.6.1. After I synched my ipod for the first time its recognised by the car but i get a "can't read data" message. I re-formatted my ipod but its exactly the same. Do you think its the upgrade- or the cable? Has anyone else found a bug with this version of Itunes or the OS? I have my doubts a cable would make the difference, and my old ipod nano that i haven't synched for a while works fine.

If standalone works fine, then, most likely the 30 pin connect may have some dirt or lint, prevent data transfer.
You can try to blow it clean, if you have a can of compressed air or gas.
Alternatively you can connect it to the car stereo and do the RESET, while connnected.as follows
Toggle the Hold switch, make sure you dont see the red mark when you do the  next step
Reset the iPod -> Press Menu and Center button simultaneously for about 10 secs or till the Apple Logo comes ON
Then release the buttons
Select your preferred language.
Here is the Apple support Article on the 5Rs

The Reset sequence may send a signal to the Car stereo to do the right thing

  • IPod Touch no longer works with car stereo after 4.0 update

    I updated my iPod to 4.0 a couple of days ago, and my Hyundai Santa Fe's built-in iPod interface no longer recognizes my iPod's music - it just says "empty iPod" or something of that nature. Is anyone else having this problem?? What should I do?

    Add me to the list. Brand blankety-new ipod touch that after 4.0.2 wouldn't work with the Subaru-factory-installed ipod connector in my '08 STI. The shut-it-off-and-restart-in-the-car method at least made it able to play music again but still no recharging.
    To add insult to injury I did the have-an-Apple-GENIUS call me thing. The first thing was that they called me....for about 1/4 of a second. The phone blipped for less than a ring and then I got an email saying, "Oh, we TRIED to reach you and you weren't there. Why don't you call us?". So I called and was immediately put on hold. When one of the geniuses finally picked up, I described the issue with great patience and his insightful answer was, "let me put you on hold while I talk to my supervisor." So I sat on hold for five minutes until...they just hung up...no answer, no, "gee we think you're SOL"....just "click". Thanks a boatload Mr. Jobs.

  • IPod Touch Stopped Working With Car Stereo

    Hello Everyone,
    I have an iPod Touch 4th generation that was working perfectly with the after market car stereo in my truck  The Stereo is an Alpine CDE-102 and I am using the iPod interface and correct cable.  After upgrading to IOS6 the car stereo fails to reconize the device and "SEARCHING" for a few minutes then gives the response "error - 1".  Has anyone else seen this or know of a solution?  Thanks!

    I apologize for posting a bit early.  Found an Alpine manual online and i needed to set the AUX port to off.  They also recommended a reset of the Touch.  After doing these two things it is now working.  Maybe this will help someone else.

  • Ipod no longer works in car after software upgrade

    After doing the most recent software upgrade on my ipod touch, the device is no longer recognised when i cnnect it to my car stereo (infinity). How can i uninstall the last upgrade??

    Downgrading the iOS is not supported by Apple.
    Try:
    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Reset all settings
    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.
    - Restore from backup. See:
    iOS: How to back up
    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.
    However, sometime the iOS update breaks compatibility and yo have to wait for either an iOS update or a firmware update for your car system.

  • Why does my ipod no longer work with my alpine car stereo

    my ipod connects directly to my alpine car stereo and up til now it has worked great. i recently synced my ipod to my computer and i think it updated the software on my ipod and now my ipod no longer works with my alpine stereo. what is up? did apple change something that would make my ipod no longer compatible with my car stereo? if so, what do i do? i have about $1000 invested in my car stereo and ipod specifically for car use. this is a serious issue for me! i just want my ipod to work like it did…
    i just connected my friends ipod and it works fine. he has version 1.1.1 software on his. i have version 2.3 on mine. since my ipod works fine by itself i’m assuming that the incompatibility between my ipod and my alpine is due to the software update.
    here again, what do i do? how can i get an older version of software back on to my ipod?
    ipod v.2.3   Mac OS X (10.4.9)  

    what kind of connection do you have? do you use the ipod 30 pin cable that connects directly to the head unit? it so, maybe you could get help on the alpine site, or a similar site?it could just be a bad connection. you may just have to go oldschool and use rca cables and plug those in...

    My IPad 2, IPhone 3GS ans iPod  no longer work with apple TV, I have 2 apple TV in my house and for he last 3 weeks the iPod was the only one we could use for appleTV now none of them works, the apple TV icon does not show up any more. Re-started everything.

    Ok thank you so much, for your timely response.
    RESPONSES:
    1)   When I set up my iMac, I did not transfer any data directly from my windows PC.  I simply used the same iTunes login and account.  I have access to all of the files via the "Purchased" section of the iTunes store.  If I click "Download Previous Purchases"  text, I can download ALL of the purchases I have ever made.
    2)   I have the Apple TV 2, so good news, question answered.  I thought maybe it was the Apple TV 1, but it is the Black model, so bam.  Good response for you.  Well the whole damned reply is an awesome response, just pointing out that one piece of awesome.  I stated that it was an Apple TV 2, and yet you were still good enough to figure I could be mistaken, and provide me with knowleedge just incase.
    QUESTIONS:
    3)   So can my iMac not stream the data directly from itunes, without download?  Apple TV can, but perhaps that is something among many things that maker it unique, and awesome.
    SERIOUSLY.... THANK YOU... 
    I work in the computer support section for the Military.  The only problem is we use Windows , lol.  Well that and i've been gone for nearly 6 months on recover.  I go back next month though I hope.  But working in that field gives me the abilty to judge responses that run inside the same vein.  Your response was so awesome that I half thought I might have written it myself.

  • Calls have been dropping out mid-call (after initially working) with full reception since upgrading my iPhone 4 to iOS5 (can hear them but they can't hear me).

    Calls have been dropping out mid-call (after initially working) with full reception since upgrading my iPhone 4 to iOS5 (can hear them but they can't hear me). The call initially works but then after a minute or so, they stop hearing me, even though I can hear them. Sometimes it goes the other way and I can't hear them.
    Please advise how to remedy ASAP.

  • IPod Touch 3G w/ stopped working with car stereo/docking speakers

    After I upgraded to OS 4, my iPod Touch 3g stopped working through the USB port of my car stereo (just says "reading" and never progresses from there). It also stopped working through the docking station (basically a large clock radio) that I bought for my living room -- it will recharge and play music through the speakers but the docking station and its remote can no longer control the music (can't advance to the next song or anything else), so I have to physically change things on the ipod itself.
    I was told by Crutchfield (where I'd purchased the car stereo) that this was a known problem with Apple -- that with OS4, many of the devices that previous worked with iPods no longer worked, and that this would be resolved in a later version of the OS that would provide some backward compatibility. However, I can't find anything at all about this.
    If anyone knows more information about this, or has a link to where I might be able to read more, I'd appreciate the info. I selected and installed both the (almost new!!) car stereo and docking station specifically because they allowed me to connect and control my iPod, and now I've lost that functionality and the $$ I put into those devices (over $300 total)!

    I apologize for posting a bit early.  Found an Alpine manual online and i needed to set the AUX port to off.  They also recommended a reset of the Touch.  After doing these two things it is now working.  Maybe this will help someone else.

  • Serious issues with AirTunes playback since "upgrading" to iTunes 7.3.2 (6)

    Dear All,
    I'd appreciate your help - I use iTunes a lot, and absolutely love it. Most of the time, I use my stereo for playback, via AirTunes. While the delay in connecting with the stereo has increased significantly over the past eighteen months or so (it used to take about one and a half seconds to connect to the speakers, whereas now, anything below ten seconds can be considered quick), and there seem to be some minor issues (after pausing, you cannot always resume the playback without switching to the MacBook's speakers, and then back to the remote speakters) that never really bothered me.
    Anyhow, since upgrading to iTunes 7.3.2 (6) three days ago, things have gone seriously wrong. I never had any playback issues in iTunes, even over very long periods of continuous use. Now, however, the playback just stops periodically, and sometimes restarts on its own after a second or two. Sometimes, however, it doesn't - and using the remote control to restart the playback doesn't work either.
    I should add that the hardware situation is unchanged, and that I always use my iPod, via my MacBook Pro.
    Thanks already for your help.
    Thomas

    Do you have ReadyBoost enabled on the PC? If so, by way of experiment, try disabling that as per the instructions from the following document:
    Troubleshooting iTunes for Windows Vista video playback performance issues
    ... any help at all with the performance issues?

  • IPod Touch no longer working with car Head Unit since update

    Hi there, I have a problem with using my iPod Touch with my car's head unit.
    I've been using my iPod Touch with the Alpine IDA X001 Head unit fitted in my car for the last 3 months without any problems, however I installed the latest software update for the Touch (v4.0) and now the head unit connects and then says no USB device. At first I thought it was the cable as the cable supplied with the head unit is pretty fragile, so I've replaced it with a new one but it still doesn't work.
    I've tested with my iPod Nano and it works perfectly so its not a problem with the head unit or lead (I plugged the Touch in and it didn't work, plugged the Nano in and worked perfectly and then plugged the Touch in and didn't work).
    Can anyone help or is it gonna be a case of Restoring the iPod Touch back to factory settings ????

    I was also having this problem with my Kenwood car stereo. I went into the store and they did a complete restore. I didn't think it worked but the next time I plugged it into my usb to connect with my car stereo it worked. So you might try doing a restore.

  • IPod Touch 5th gen no longer working with Mini stereo...

    I have an 'entertainment pack' in my Mini that allows me to connect my iPod Touch 5th gen to the car stereo (via USB & aux in cables) to both listen to it and scroll through my music through the stereo interface. I have had a few problems before with it not connecting but these usually resolved themselves within a day or so and I think were more to do with my lightning to 30 pin adapter than my actual iPod. However, since I installed the latest ios7 update a couple of days ago I cannot get it to work at all and keep getting a message saying 'this accessory is not supported' when I plug the iPod into my car. Any suggestions on how I can resolve this?

  • My ipod touch is no longer working with universal dock since downloading the new OS

    I have the Apple Universal Dock.  It had been working fine with my ipod touch.  I just downloaded the new OS and now my ipod touch will not work with the Universal Dock.
    Any ideas?

    Hi grecokev,
    Thank you for contributing to the Apple Support Communities.
    You mention that your iPod nano is no longer recognized by iTunes after an update. Reinstalling iTunes is a good troubleshooting step, and if the device still doesn't appear in iTunes, try the following steps next:
    Turn off your computer and your iOS device or iPod, then turn them on again.
    Check to make sure that you've installed all required updates for your computer.
    Verify that the 30-pin to USB cable or Lightning Connector to USB cable is free of debris and not damaged. If another cable is available, test with that cable instead.
    USB cables that are bundled with third-party products or accessories might work only to charge those products and might not transmit data. Also, if you're using a third-party case or extended battery pack, try removing the case and connecting the Apple-supplied USB cable directly to your device.
    You can find these steps in this troubleshooting article:
    iPhone, iPad, or iPod not recognized in iTunes for Windows - Apple Support
    If the steps above don't solve it, see the section of the article called "Verify that Apple Mobile Device Support is installed" for some additional steps to try on your PC.
    Best Regards,
    Jeremy

  • Control at ipod no longer works in car

    This past Christmas I had an ipod adapter installed in my Hummer-3 (2006)
    Everything was working fine.
    With the most recent update (1.1.1), I am no longer able to control my ipod THRU THE IPOD.
    I brought my car into the dealer that installed the ipod adapter, and they came to the conclusion that the software update to itunes & ipod is where the proboem is.
    To fix this - I've tried going back to the older version in both itunes & ipod - but, without success. I get library version conflicts.
    Please help Me !!!!!!!

    Man, I'd really like to help you.
    Although I never had, until now, to downgrade, I think the post below b y Sue Marsh, might help you doing it.
    I’m still holding up to my 1.0.3, mainly because of my car interface, which I’m almost sure will stop working with 1.1, or 1.1.1 – call it a feeling – such are the messes created with these never-ending, never-working-properly-upgrades
    Hope this will be of some help – the thread is long enough, so I cut for you what I think is the most relevant part
    Good luck

    Re: Classic Firmware 1.1: What's new?
    Posted: Jan 29, 2008 12:17 PM in response to: dragon21
    The 1.1 upgrade is usually in this folder on a Windows PC; C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPod Software Updates. When you have found the 1.1 upgrade, follow the steps below; 1. Disconnect your iPod and close iTunes2. Remove the files for 1.1 (delete them, move them to another folder, whatever).3. Make sure you have both files for v1.0.3 in their proper location ie in the iPod software updates file (the one mentioned at the beginning of this message).4. Reopen iTunes and select Edit > Preferences. A dialogue screen headed "iTunes" will open. On the tab marked "General", click the box labelled "Check for updates automatically". (The check box should now be clear.) Click OK at the bottom of the screen to close the iTunes dialogue screen.5. Now connect your iPod.6. Click the "Restore" button7. Answer yes when asked if you want to install older firmware8. Let the update do its thingIf you find that you do not have v1.0.3 on your computer (see step 3 above), there is a website (mentioned earlier in this thread) where you can download it;http://rapidshare.com/files/73863240/1.0.3.zip.htmlI hope this helps. If not, post again for more help. Sue"
