help!

alright, my ipod is supposedly campatible with a Kenwood KDC-MP532U. but when i try to read it through the stereo (using the ipod cable that i had). it reads it, but it says that it doesent have any music and i know it does. do i have to download any special software? do i have to buy any special adapters?

I just got the 538u and mine reads fine. Same set up with the usb attached. Maybe your head unit is faulty or try a new cable if you can. Does the head unit recognize the ipod when connected?

alright, it turns out that i need an update to run my new ipod. it has an update program, but the only models that seem to be compatible are the MP435U and MP535U. since mine is a MP532U, i dont know if it will work
