iPod will only plays first 25 songs in car on a loop.

My iPod Classic will not play further than the first 25 songs when plugged into the car and then it starts over on a loop. It used to be just fine. And it works fine with the headphones. I did a complete reset and reloaded all the music but it still refuses to go past the first 25 songs.

It was formatted for Windows when I first got it then reformatted for IOS but that was a while ago and it seemed fine after that.

I'm not sure what to do next. Any ideas why it wouldn't be able to get past the first 25 songs?

Thanks for ANY help with this.

@gonedoggygone the odd thing here is that it works fine with the headphones. This may not entirely be an iPod issue. How do you connect it to your car?


@oldturkey03 It says plugged into the car so I presume he plugs it in using an audio cable


@captainsnowball we should never assume anything. You'll be surprised about things we have encountered and the best way to avoid any wrong answer etc. and leading people down a rabbithole is by asking for clarification.


My teacher once told me never assume." it makes an a** out of U and Me"


That is absolutely correct ;-)

Hi Laura, try either a different Apple USB cord or plug it into the car using a 3.5mm plug (like the headphone type plug) and see if the problem persists.
