    Have you tried pressing the CD button twice?

    From radio mode - cd button once goes to CD, press again to change to CD Changer or, in yours (and my case) to switch to iPod mode

    Not having the same unit as you I cant help, press every button lol I have the same dock in the glove box you say its lighing the ipod up so I assume its wired up to the back of the unit, are you using an ipod? if so what generation, mine will only work with certain generation ipods

    Most likely your 3rd party Apple Lightning adapter mate. Only the proper apple ones work for full audio support and control. Got a proper apple myself in my car and works fine with the AMI and RNSE from my iphone5. But yeah maybe just grab an older ipod or iphone to double check it all works before buying the proper adapter. Last time I checked the proper adapter was £5 cheaper on Amazon than from Apple.

    Oh and if it's the older style ipod system, like the one in your first post, its utter cack anyway and just works by treating your ipod/iphone as a CD changer and using the first 6 playlists as though they were CD's. So no track info or ID3 tags etc. Just track 1,2,3,4,5....etc Terrible system and that's what my car had originally from Audi.
    Then Audi brought out the AMI system and I had NHN (user on here) upgrade my system to this. Then you can at least see all the music and track details. Still pretty basic compared to a lot of third party headunits, but it's the best option if you want to stay OEM.

    Yep SD slots are the best really! What I use on mine day to day, as I even though I've full AMI now, I can't be ***** to keep plugging the iphone in and leaving it in the glove box.

    With the RNSE Mk1 you can get 2 x 4GB SD cards. If you have the newer MkII (which sounds like you have as you've got the media button) then you can max it out with 2 x 32GB cards which is as much as it will support.
