When I connect my phone to the car stereo I do not hear any sound. I connect the cable and I can see the music volume on my phone shoot to zero and no sound comes out of the speakers even though I can see all the information on the screen.  It is obvious the music is playing, there is just no sound coming through.  Does anyone know of any way to prevent the volume on my phone from dropping to zero every time I connect it?

    as stated then the ios devices does not support connecting by usb to anything but a computer or the ac charger


    it does not work with usb mass stroage driver which devices such as stereos which have usb conenctors rely on

    the rest of the smartphones and tablets is quiting that feature too

    suppose they all feel the disc mode is too often used for copying media between people without the rights to play it
