iPod Issue - High Pitch Beep Then Turns Off

Hi Guys

I have searched for this issue, but have only found people talking about their iPod locking up on them. Not sure if this is the same thing or not.

I have a 30 GB iPod classic 5th Generation. It has always worked well in my previous car. Never had an issue.

The problem I've been having in my 2011 E92 is as follows: When I start the car the music from the iPod starts playing. It plays for anywhere from 10 seconds to a minute then randomly a very high pitched beep will sound from the stereo and the music stops. The radio then comes on and I notice that the car appears to be searching for the iPod. Eventually it finds it and I can then start playing the iPod again. I'd say this happens about 1 out of every 5 times I start the car. It doesn't happen after being in the car for an extended period... just on start up.

I use the white iPod cable to connect it.

Anyone else have this issue?
