The USB port does not play music it only charges. the AUX is were you plug it in to get the music. If thats not it then it could be your cord. I had the same problem awhile back.

    This is incorrect. Please read my above answer. It does play music, but not from your iPod.

ANSWER:
The USB is not going to work with your iPod. It is intended to be used with a flash drive or external hard drive with a folder structure containing either .mp3 or .wma files.

REASON:
The way the USB works on the system is that it reads all the files and folders on the entire device and will say "reading" until it reads all the files and folders. This should only take a few seconds but if there is tons of files it may take longer.
Main problem: An iPod contains much more than just music files and folders - it contains an entire operating system. Worse, the operating system which the iPod uses is protected, keeping other devices except for iTunes from reading the music files.

SOLUTION:
You will need to use a flash drive or external hard drive with your USB. This device can only contain music, and the music must be organized into folders. Your iPod will not work. However, you can use Auxiliary input using a cable which both ends are 1/4" headphone jacks, one end going to the iPod and other plugged into your stereo.

Good Luck!

First thing to try would be cleaning the contacts where the usb cable plugs in to your head unit. Something may have gotten stuck in there, e.g lint or dust. A little compressed air into the slot or a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment can often be the easiest. Cheers, Dan

IPod Touch won't be read


Wont read what ?

Sometimes, you might find that your computer does not read that the iPod is connected to the USB port, preventing the synchronization of new files.


There are several potential causes for this lack of hardware recognition and many steps can be taken to troubleshoot the causes.


Reset your iPod's internal software using the key combination appropriate for your model. Apple's support documentation details how to do this for each available model.

(See Resources)


Install all iTunes software updates and restart your computer.


Connect your iPod directly to a USB port on the computer.

Do not attach through a keyboard port or USB hub.


These might not provide enough power to operate the iPod.

Connect the iPod to a secondary USB port.


If the iPod is recognized now, the original USB port might be damaged.


Connect the iPod using a secondary iPod USB cable.

If the iPod is recognized now, the original USB cable might be damaged and should be replaced.


Restore the iPod using a computer that can read it as a last resort. Connect the iPod to another computer, launch iTunes and select "Restore" from the iPod information screen.

This will erase all data and restore default settings.


Contact Apple support or visit an Apple store for further help if your iPod still cannot be seen. An advanced hardware issue might be present and a warranty hardware replacement might be indicated.


Hope this helps

When I plug my iPhone into the USB it doesn't


ANSWER: The headphone jack will not charge your iPod. Only the USB will charge your iPod. However, the headphone jack will play music, but the USB will not play music from your iPod.
REASON: The headphone jack does not provide any power to charge your iPod. It isnly has enough power to recieve a music signal.
REASON WHY YOU CANNOT PLAY IPOD THROUGH THE USB: The USB is only intended to be used with a flash drive or external hard drive with a folder structure containing either .mp3 or .wma files. The way the USB works on the system is that it reads all the files and folders on the entire device and will say "reading" until it reads all the files and folders.

Main problem: An iPod contains much more than just music files and folders - it contains an entire operating system. Worse, the operating system which the iPod uses is protected, keeping other devices except for iTunes from reading the music files.
TO PLAY MUSIC FROM USB (NOT IPOD): You will need to use a flash drive or external hard drive with your USB. This device can only contain music, and the music must be organized into folders. Your iPod will not work. However, you can use Auxiliary input using a cable which both ends are 1/4" headphone jacks, one end going to the iPod and other plugged into your stereo.
SOLUTION: To charge your iPod, you need to plug it into USB. However, to play music, you need to plug your iPod into the headphone jack.

My ipod won't work with my computer.


Probably you might need to reinstall the ipod drivers using the installation manual carefully following the guides and steps.

Also check your manual for the hardware and operating system requirements if it matches your computer spec.

But if you're sure the installation was properly done then make sure the ipod suite (PC SUITE) is installed.

Lastly plug in the ipod into other USB ports to ascertain if the USB ports on your PC is faulty.
