What do the iPod error messages mean on the audio system?

Your Accord’s audio system is designed to provide some information in the form of error messages if a problem is encountered while connected to your iPod. You’ll find a brief summary below.

  • USB Error: This means there’s a problem with the adapter.

  • Bad USB Device Please Check Owner’s Manual: This means the device is incompatible. Disconnect the iPod, turn off the audio system and then turn it on again. Do not reconnect the iPod.

  • No Files in iPod: This indicates that there are no files stored on your iPod.

  • Unsupported Ver.: This indicates that the audio system does not support your iPod’s operating system version. You may need to update the iPod.

  • Connect Retry: This indicates a bad connection, and the iPod should be reconnected.
