Using my ipod with my car stereo.

If i plug my ipod into the usb in my car stereo, it does nothing. It shows that it's connected but it won't play. I bought my ipod used so it didn't come with an instruction manual.

  • Do you have an adapter specifically designed to play through your car stereo? If this is the case, sometimes the generations of iPods are not compatible with the adapter and stereo. When I bought a 5th generation iPod, my adapter would work but it would not charge my iPod.
