    A4 MMI Iphone / Ipod Issue

    Hi All,

    Just taken ownership of an 08 A4 3.0TDI Quattro.

    I bought two cables for the MMI plug in the glove box. One for a USB cable and One for the ipod / Iphone.
    I connect a USB stick and it works a dream, however if i use the iphone cable it just says the device is not working or connected properly. I tried this with two different cables, an ipod and an iphone so it must be the MMI?

    I have read there are firmware updates available but at a loose end what to do.

    I think its a 2G High MMI: Colour screen, blootooth, 6 CD changer in the dash, Plug in the glove box, DVD Sat nav with DVD unit in the boot.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks.

    You have the same 2G set up as mine. I've had that same message a handful of times. All I do is uplug the ipod then plug it back in and it then works.

    What is the difference between the AMI cable and the headphone type jack in the centre console?

    Thanks guys, I will give the different cable a go. I have the kind with a blue ring around the base of the plug. Tried unplugging and reconnecting many times but no cigar.

    Will keep you posted but any other ideas welcomed.

    Cheers

    So i popped into Audi and they recon it needs to be plugged in to have a chat with Audi central in germany to check it has latest firmware and software.All booked in now and luckily its still within a month of purchase so they still want to keep me happy and will be free.

    Lets see...

    Yeah youd think so. I tried three cables in total but the dealer didnt try anything there and then. Ive gotta wait a week before it goes in. I guess it could be a faulty ami unit but i suppose they check the basics first.
