    How are you connecting it? You need the iPod/iphone connection kit for that unit. I have a Pioneer and mine was like $40. You need it to plug into your iPhone and the other end goes into USB and the AUX jack. If you don't have the USB connection, videos won't play, you can only do audio thru the Aux input.

    Edit. You need to read up on your product man...

    i have a USB port that comes out, then i plug my iphone data cable into that...if i choose to control it thru the HU then the artwork shows, but if i choose to control through my phone then it doesn't. it's much more slow and lags when i control the song thru the HU > iphone...


    any reccomendations on a cheap mp3 player so i can use it strictly for my car? would a thumb drive be any different than using an ipod/iphone? in terms of quality or whatever else?


    edit: in that pic all i have is a USB port, which my iphone cable will then plug in to...do i need the rest>

    You need that unit there if you want to make everything work right. If you can take it back I would. Stick with Pioneer or Kenwood.
