Hi just wanted to ask before i book car into ford... do you need a specific audio cable to work the USB feature in a 60plate focus???
i have a ipod and it has a feature on the cd player to play my ipod through the usb, when i plug it in it just makes a noise no music gets played yet the player thinks its playing... (if that makes sense) it charges the ipod but doesnt play songs :S

any idea if its a fault with the USB or the fact i need to purchase a cable from ford ?? the aux cable works fine but wanted the other feature to work.
any advise be good please

thanks

There is a cable which has a USB on one end and an iPod and 3.5 plugs on the other end.

I do believe there is also a software update which will allow you to just use a standard iPod sync cable too.

There are users on this forum that have done the update, I believe they sourced it themselves and installed via a USB stick.
