    Icon32 Can't select music when connected to ipod w/ Kenwood KDC-X792 / KDC-MP738U

    I just had a Kenwood KDC-X792 / KDC-MP738U installed today and I can play music from my ipod (80GB ipod video w/ the latest firmware updates), I can seek tracks by pressing the control (right) knob left and right, however, I can't access the artist/album selection menu by pressing up on the control knob.

    Demo mode is off.

    The manual says the "ipod mode" function has to be on, which it is.

    It says to push up on the control knob to select music like you would using an ipod, but when I press up nothing happens.

    So, the only way I can change albums or artists is to unplug the ipod, select the music I want, and then plug it back in, which really *****.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    That is strange.

    I know for me, when I had the x-492 direct connect iPod, I had to select the songs from my iPod and then plug it in, but you have the actual iPod adapter, so it should work. Maybe a faulty iPod adapter or they didn't plug something in right? Try taking it back to them and see if they can get it to work?

    With the KenWood iPod connector, you HAVE to disconnect the cable from the iPod, select your music, then plug it back in. The KenWood allows you to select the songs on the selected album from the deck. But, it wont allow you to change the albums.

    I think you're mistaken because in the manual for the Kenwood ipod connector it specifically lists my ipod as one in which you can, "select music in a manner similar to that of the ipod."

    Regardless I also hooked up a non-kenwood ipod connector and I still have the problem.

    Also, in the KDC-X792 manual it also talks about being able to select music similar to an ipod by pressing up on the control knob.

    EDIT:

    I just used a 3rd generation ipod nano and it worked fine, with either the kenwood or apple connector.

    So it seems like it's my ipod, which is strange, because it is a 5th generation video, which is listed as a compatible ipod.

    EXTRA EDIT:

    I just used a newer 5th gen video ipod and it also worked fine. So it seems like my ipod is the problem. I just wish I knew what that problem was.

    I am having the same problem with my x792 and 5th generation iPod.

    Any chance you figured out a fix?

    hey i have a kdcx592
    took me a few days to figure it out but turn off the Randomize song/folder setting on the HU
    then you should be able to choose and scroll through the ipod

    Thanks for the tip. I tried this, but the function is still not working. The only way to select a new folder is to turn the knob, which brings me back to the "top root" menu of playlists, artists, albums, genres, songs, etc., instead of the folder that I am currently listening to music from.

    I noticed this as well, which is kind of odd.
