For troubleshooting purposes try a USB flash drive with some MP3 files.

what ipod do you have? I had an old ipod classic 5th gen and it did the same thing. Not all the time, but it was hot or miss. sometimes it would work, sometimes it wouldnt. I bought a 5th gen ipod touch and it works flawlessly.

I have an old iPhone I use and I have tried my new iPhone neither work its like it won't pick up USB it used to work great then one day stopped, normally even if you have nothing plugged in and you use voice command "USB" it will say no device or whatever mine goes straight to line in

Ya I've tried two cables too I was hoping to get it working but it doesn't sound like a common problem so maybe the dealership is the answer
