    "do you need a cable" you mean the one that connects the ipod to back of the headunit? YES

    Regards the falling out bit - from the factory different little plastic adapters came in a bag that were to add pressure fit to different models of iPod - you've got one inserted in the front of the photo which is probably for a thicker, older model.

    Could just be faulty unit for the other issue, or no connection from the rear to headunit but I'm sure that would be peculiar...

    Ipod video should be fine - it's the newer ones that can't be charged etc with that style of iPod adapter

    Difficulty is that when its in the slot you can't see the screen to tell if the iPod is doing anything. A successfull plug-in results in the audi logo appearing on the iPod screen. An iPod extension cable would be the way to check that out but sounds to me like a duff audi iPod prep

    Get an iPod extension cable off eBay for next to nothing, that's what I had when I had that iPod connection before I changed it to AMI. Make sure it passes audio though as there are lots of data only ones on eBay.
