iPod reset is usually all it takes. Was the battery disconnected when the ice>Link was installed? This can be the source of your problem.

addition info for Tom at Dension

Hello Tom,

Thanks for the reply. I did disconnect the battery before doing the install. My headunit is a BMW Traffic Pro (4771). When I switch to cd changer mode, the headunit indicates Disc 1, Track 99. If I advance to Disc 2, it still shows track 99. The ipod shows the ok to disconnect check mark even after reset. Thanks for any assistance you can offer.

This means the ice>Link is not seeing the iPod. Try reboting the iPod by pressing on the MENU and center buttons for +5 seconds and reconnecting to the ice>Link.

This can also happen when the iPod is disconnected from the computer without ejecting the iPod beforehand - never alloing the iPod to revert back to iPod mode.

I'm not sure why the CD Changer would give the same message unless there is no magazine in the Changer. You might need to take a trip to the dealer.
