Having problems hooking IPOD to USB port on Jensen stereo. Display shows loading forever but never starts playing music. Anybody else have this problem or know a solution?

Thanks

The USB in the Jensen units are not compatible with iPod/iPad/iPhone. We Use the mini headphone jack from the Jensen to our Apple products.

I bought a really cool device to bluetooth stream from my iPhone to the Jensen. It's a little box that connects to the headphone jack on the Jensen.

I'm a little behind the times on the electronic gadgets. I don't even own an IPOD but wife and daughters do. If you could provide name of the gadget you bought or a link to it that would be great.

Thanks!

I have a 2011 unit and mine has the Jensen radio with the USB port. I use my IPOD with the USB port. Mine usually shows loading then takes about 5-10 minutes before it kicks in and starts playing. It's always been like that. So, I usually just plug it in and go do something else. Then it will come on when it's ready. But it will play on the Jensen with the USB port. Plug it in and give it some time and see what happens. Good luck. Let us knowEdited by: Papa-T

There are many choices - go to Amazon and seach Bluetooth Iphone or Bluetooth IPOD. Not sure if any of the ipods have bluetooth - maybe the touch does. The gadget is cool though. As long as I'm within 30 feet of my trailer, it works. Nice to change tunes from by phone or que up playlist, or just pause it when someone comes up to talk. Also, you can control volume from your phone too.Edited by: wincrasher

We use the little white cord that plugs into the headphone jack. Works fine that way.

I plugged in the IPOD last night to the USB port and left it for 30 minutes and it still didn't start playing, just kept saynig USB LOADING. I guess I will try one of the other suggestions.

Thanks

Sorry you are having trouble. These things cane very frustrating. Could be so many things - bad USB cable, version of iPod not supported, faulty iPod or faulty Jensen unit



First check you manual to see if your kind of iPod is supported. If you don't have one, search online to download one. Next, try another cable. If these don't solve it, then you Have to look at either a different iPod or getting the jensen checked.



Good luck
