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...

  • OS 4.0 no longer works with my Alpine Car Stereo

    Pops up and says the phone is not compatible with this device could cause interference or something like that. Ive used this feature for years now.

    I'm definitely paying close attention to this.. I have an Alpine CDE-102, and I was about to add on the alpine 400BT http://www.alpine-usa.com/product/view/kce-400bt/, but now I want to see if it is going to work with the new IOS4?
    currently I connect my iPhone 3GS with the 433iv cable and it sometimes gives me the "not made for iPhone" compatibility error, sometimes no... I also don't think it charges my phone as fast as the the cigarette lighter adapter. Also, I've managed to confuse the heck out of my head unit if I play audio from an "app" rather than the iPod itself. Like the "this american life app" or "stitcher".. Definitely works, but also gets confused with my current 3Gs operating system.
    I was hoping the new OS might make all that work better...
    This is a pretty impressive bit of integration.. Pandora friendly... but all I really want is the ability to keep my phone charged, play music from my phone or an app, and to dump that music and switch to answer a call when a call comes in.

  • After recent iPhone update why does my phone no longer work with my car's bluetooth?

    Recently I updated my iPhone 5 and my wife's iPhone 4s. My wife and I attempted to use the bluetooth connection in out car to listen to some music and it will not work. On our screen we get a message "No Data." Since the same is true for both of my iPhone and my wife's, there seems be some type of bug with the new update. Is anyone else having the same problem? If so, is there a work-around solution?

  • IPhone 5s no longer works with my JVC car stereo after upgrading

    I updated my iPhone 5s to ios8 last Wednesday (the 17th). When I drive, I synch my phone to my car stereo system (a JVC unit -- I can't recall the model number but it was installed just a year ago). After the upgrade, it worked fine. But on Sunday morning the phone experienced a hard crash and I had to reboot it by pressing the home and sleep buttons together. The phone came back without any further incident.
    When I tried to make a call later that night I found that instead of my phone being active on my phone it tried to play music instead. I couldn't figure out how to stop this, so I turned off Blue Tooth. And now, when I try using the phone the Blue Tooth seems to synch up, but the phone cannot dial out -- I get a "called failed" message on the car stereo screen. If I look at the phone, I see that the phone has been activated, but it isn't dialing out. And then the phone will make bogus calls to an unrecognized number, or to a non-number. It will do this every 30 seconds or so. If I dial the phone manually, the Blue Tooth seems to work and I can talk to people hands free as usual. But when the call ends (and I don't always have a "call end" button showing on the JVC screen) the phone will again attempt to dial a bogus phone number.
    The only thing that has changed is I upgraded my iPhone to ios8. Are there known issues around Blue Tooth connectivity? I also reset my phone to factory specs and reinstalled ios8 from my PC via the Lightning cable. This didn't change anything (I did that on Sunday evening). The Apple trouble shooting pages are of no help with this (I've already looked at them). I would really appreciate any help anyone could give me -- I think I've tried everything I know to do.

    I upgraded to ios 8.0.2 and it still won't work. The phone will synch to the JVC blue tooth, but will not dial out. The phone is activated and it has the screen that indicates it is dialing but it isn't. And then the blue connection drops and won't reconnect.

    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.
    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.
    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.
    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. 

  • Why does my iPod Shuffle stop working after a few songs?

    I had my iPod Shuffle for about a month now and it's already causing me trouble.
    I would play a couple of songs, but when I go to change it, it stops working. I turn it off and on again only to have it take me back to where I started off at (e.g. Let's say I have 100 songs, I start at 50 and I get to 55 before it shuts off. When I turn it back on, it starts at 50 all over again). This process would happen over and over again with seemingly no end.
    So my question is, why does my iPod Shuffle stop working after a few songs and how can I fix it?
    I already tried using the iTunes troubleshooting guide, but nothing worked.
    Details -
    4th Generation
    I only use it at the gym or when I'm running
    I've only used the Apple products that came with it so far
           (e.g. charger, headphones, etc.)
    881 MB are still left
    Music stops randomly, no common number or pattern

    I had the same problem, I purchased a new ipod shuffle, followed the instructions but it would stop after a few songs and I would have to shut it off, wait and turn it back on and it would go back to the same song and then once again, after a few songs it would shut off. I returned the ipod and got another one, same thing happened. This is how I resolved the issue.
    1. open itunes, make sure its up to date, then connect your shuffle to your pc
    2.on the left of the itunes window, select your ipod, then at the top select music then check the sync box and select "selected playlists"
    3.then go back and click on your ipod on the left, a message will appear just select apply
    all of your music should be emptied from your ipod.
    4.delete all of your playlists on the left, this will not delete anything from your library. Delete the "purchased" playlist under itunes store on the left as well, once again this will not delete anything from your library
    5.There should be an arrow just in front of your ipod, click on this arrow and you should see your music file for the ipod appear, this should be the only file that you see, everything else should be deleted.
    6. go to your music library and check only the songs that you want to load into your ipod. Double click on each song to make sure that they all play.
    If you find a song that does not play you should be asked to authorize it, don't waste your time that did not solve the issue for me, instead cancel to authorize the song and then delete the song and move it to recycle bin. Once the song is deleted a cloud should appear, click on the cloud and download the song again, when done, make sure the song plays and that it is checked.
    7.After you have made sure that all of the songs play and are checked, click on your ipod once more, located to the left, check the box  "sync only checked songs" then from the top select music. In the music window select "sync music' and then select "entire music Library"
    8. Go back to the left and click on the arrow in front of your ipod, you should see the music file, click on the music file and you should see all of your music being loaded to your ipod.
    9. When all of the music is done loading, eject your ipod by clicking on the arrow located after the battery symbol where your ipod appears on the left
    10. Turn on your ipod and scroll through your songs to make sure that the problem is resolved.
    Not sure if all of this was necessary but it worked for me.

  • HT1665 Why does my ihome no longer work properly since my iPod update

    My ihome no longer works properly since I updated my iPod to the most current software update. Is there a fix?

    Sometimes thisworks:
    - 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,sometimes an iOS update breaks compatibility and you have to wait for either an iOS update or and update to the iHome firmware. Go to iHome's support site

  • IPod no longer works with Older iMac (works with new iMac)

    Hi all:
    First off sorry about the cross post but I got no response to this question in the other forum. Hoping for help from this group. Thanks!!!!
    I have an iMac Duo (20" 2.0Ghz) running 10.4.8 and iTunes 7.0.1 which recognizes my 5g (and my wife's 4g) no problem. However when I attach either of them to my G3 (G3 500 MHz) running 10.2.8 (iTunes 6.0.5) they are not recognized.
    I believe that the 5G won't work because the G3 does not have USB 2. However, I do not understand why the 4G does not work.
    The 4G worked with the G3 for about 2 years. I have not tried to attach it to the G3 since we bought new computers (iMac for me, MacBook Pro for her) until today. I wanted to use it to transfer some files from the G3 to the new iMac.
    I have tried forcing the 4G into disk mode and connecting it to the G3 but that did not help (I tried this with the 5G also).
    I am using a USB cable with the 5G and a firewire cable with the 4G.
    According to software update all of the computers are 100% current.
    Thanks for any and all help!

    I'm no geek but I can say that my 5G video iPod works just fine with my B&W G3 (450Mhz processor), which I am pretty sure only has USB 1. My G3 is running iTunes 7 and OS 10.4.5. Updating may solve your problem.

  • Why does my button no longer work in Flash Player 8?

    I have built a site in Flash MX a while ago. Now I’d
    like to upgrade things a bit while testing the new Adobe Flash CS3.
    To be able to use a new function (“anti-alias for
    readability”) the program warns me that “this feature
    is not supported by Flash Player 6. To use this feature, you must
    target Flash player 8.”
    So I change the setting to Flash Player 8, leaving
    Actionscript to version 2.0.
    However, now one of my main menu buttons no longer works!
    When I change settings back to Flash Player 6, things are fine
    again. What am I overlooking?
    Below is the script for the button (which has an instance
    name). Does anything change with the actionscript in CS3?
    Thanks for any advise!

    That's it! It works fine again. Thanks a lot, you made my
