    Updated my iPod Video classic to iOS 2.0.5. The iPod is used solely in my truck and connected to my Alpine INE-W940. The problem is when I try to listen to one of my playlists the head unit only recognizes one song and the desk shows only one file (1/1) in the playlist.

    However, when I use my other iPod that has not been upgraded, the playlists are fine and the deck reads the correct number of files in the playlist. How can I restore my iPod to a previous iOS that works?

    I don't think you can. I've seen this happen many times where the device won't work with an iPod/iPhone because of firmware issues.

    Just to be clear, you are referring to an "iPod Classic" style device, with a smallish non-touch screen and a click-wheel interface, correct?

    If so, then it's not iOS that it runs, it's custom iPod OS.

    You can download older firmware for iPods at

    Make sure you pick the right iPod model from the drop-down!

    iPods can be restored to any appropriate version within iTunes by holding down "Option" (on a Mac, "Alt" on Windows) as you click "Restore".
