Default Ipod with RES radio

I have a 2011 Ram with RES radio with uconnect and voice command. I have a usb port in the glove box and I am wondering how to hook up an ipod to it or if I can hook up a hard drive? I have a 4th gen ipod and when I plug it into the usb, nothing happens. It will read music off of a flash drive however.

Any help is appreciated.

Welcome to the Z. I recommend going back to the dealer and have them walk you through the functions of the radio/Uconnect, etc. Two reasons for this, 1) that USB may not be connected to the radio (it happens), 2) they are supposed to do it when you pick up the truck anyway, its part of "customer service".

We have a lot of forums for all kinds of topics, so you shouldn't have any problems finding a place to post questions.

We LOVE pics of Rams.

Here's how to post them: http://www.ramforumz.com/forumdisplay.php?f=73

The USB is connected because it will play music off of a thumb drive. I just am unsure how to hook up an ipod or if I need a special cable.

Thanks for the reply.

Ah, iPods take an adapter cable between the iPod and the USB. The cable you use to hook it up to your computer should work fine.
