;)Hi!!

I have a civic type r GT and it comes with the ipod connection.

I have loaded all my songs on the ipod and have put them into folders but when I connect it to the civic I cannot understand as it doesnt have it in folders any more and just plays all the songs in a random order so I cannot find which song I want to play??

I cannot make out how to go up and down a folder...and it doesnt even show up on the screen when its connected to the ipod...just says "extension".

Does anybody know if its possible to have it in folders or do the songs just have to be in any order?

ALSO...can vidoes be played on the screen? The car has a DVD player (for the sat nav) but it wont play vids??

THANKS IN ADVANCE!!:police:

I have an iPhone in my Type S GT.. I set my songs up in playlists.. easy if you do it through iTunes on your computer. they still get played in a random order, but at least I can select a playlist when I get in the car. :)

Aw I see.. Sorry I misunderstood. Have you checked the car user manual? There's a list of iPods that the car is compatible with. Also, mine was playing up similar to this yesterday, but after I reset my iPhone, it was all fine. Have you tried a reset?

random i wonder why after you reset your phone it worked? was it playing before and just not reading the playlists?

im not sure mine is a honda ipod connection,mine is fitted in the silver tray bellow the radio

Not that specifically but whenever something odd goes on with the iPhone I reset it and it works it out in the end.. it's done a few off things!

Hmm.. mine is definitely a Honda iPod/USB connection, but mine is in the armrest.. (mine is an 09 though) also - the fact that yours says 'extension' makes me think it's aftermarket aswell?

My Husband's car has an iPod connection that he has set up to come through the dash to his little tray thing. That was aftermarket.. it works really well with his DVD player/sat nav/stereo but it's a bit slower.. I know on that he can play playlists - but he has an actual DVD unit in his car..

How long have you had the car? Can you trace the previous owner and ask what it is so you can read up about compatibility etc?

faz0062....

the only way i could move playlists is to hold down the + button on the track select on your steeringwheel, until it beeps, it will then play an random selection... however if you do it any i will go back to the first lot...

very odd!

hmmm thanks for that...im going to try that! My ipod connection is in the little tray under the stereo (the one with the flip cover),...does this mean its not origianl Honda?

Its a 57 plate...only had it a few month...i thought I would be able to control the playlists by the screen??? but it just says "extension" im so confused!!!

Mine is on ¨PLAYLIST¨ then create a folder ALL CAPS, NO SPACE...

HONDA1
HONDA2
HONDA3
HONDA4
HONDA5
HONDA6
HONDA7

Now move or copy songs on the folder.... I have arranged mine like HONDA1 is 100 songs but in order... 50 techno 50 RnB :cool:

HONDA8 & 9...you cant play save songs on this folder coz this is a factory settings.
8 is random
9 is continue playing (all songs)

On car will appear:
CDC1 to CDC9

Hope this help ;)
