    AMI Not working?

    I unplugged my ipod from the AMI last night to update the ipod.
    I plugged back into the AMI after i had finished.This morning i was listening to music via the sd card and decided to switch to the ipod.I pressed the source button and the AMI selection is not higlighted it is greyed out as if i have nothing plugged in.I checked the connection in both the AMI and Ipod and all seems fine the ipod is even charging but the selection on the display is still greyed out,SD card and cds are all orange ready to select but the AMI option cannot be selcted any ideas???

    Have you tried plugging in another ipod....that worked for me.Happens on a regular basis and all i have to do now when it happens is to reconnect.I know that my ipods are 'fussy' with cables used to connect to the pc, but i doubt if you have one to swap out

    I had a 160gb classic for the car, but it would skip tracks.Theyd play in itunes but not solo.Had it swapped by apple, same dance.If your ipod has a hard drive as opposed to a flash (touch and phone) it might be worth defragging.Double check that your cable is the correct one...there are two ...pre and post 2009

    thats the frustrating part when its been ok for that long.Have you tried re seating the ami cable at the ami end?
