    I've just installed a car stereo with USB in. I've connected my mini from the dock connector to USB. The sound is excellent and it charges the ipod. However - the mini just reads 'Do not disconnect' and although it outputs the sound, it plays in the same order each time I connect it. I can select 'Random' mode on the car stereo, but that obviously doesn't let me select a track. I can however FF to the next random track from the car's FF button. Is there a way of getting back the options via the ipod this way. It makes no difference if I have 'disk mode' enabled on the ipod or not.
