Exclamation problems in the car

hello to all

sorry for my english

I would like to solve a problem

basically if I try to connect the nexus 5 port usb car.
does not recognize it. I connect it to the music of course

I appears on the display of the car radio (unsupported)

I used to be before the iphone 4 without problems, or even USB flash drives normal or mp3 players, I connected them with a USB cable, and immediately worked.
nexus 5 does not work

at home we have 2 nexus 5 .
one unlocked, and one still original.
neither one works

are both recognized on the PC of course, appear as removable devices.

have any ideas on how I can fix in car

i have a honda civic i-vtec 2009

You can't. The nexus uses mtp to handle external devices accessing your phone storage.
Your computer can use mtp but most car units do not have the mtp protocol which is required to access your phones storage.

If your car supports audio over Bluetooth that's probably the easiest way to get it working.
