USB Thumb drive

I've tried 2 different USB thumb drive in the front of the player and neither one worked. This is the main reason I bought this particular unit! Am I missing something?

    I'm trying to play mp3 files. They do not have any DRM on them. Am I using an incompatible USB drive? They have U3 Smart technology on them.

    Recently purchased and installed CD1200. Will identify and load files from a 1GB PNY 'Attache' model thumbdrive but will not work with a 4GB Cruzer Micro thumbdrive. If you are familiar with the Cruzer you know that it has an orange LED built-in that flashes quickly and sharply when accessing data but flashes slower, fading on and off, when idle. It behaves as follows when inserted into the front USB slot: LED turns on sharply, then flashes with fade effect about 3 times then shuts off. This cycle repeats continously... forever it seems. The CD1200 does not respond at all when the Cruzer is inserted. That is to say that if I am listening to the radio and I insert the Cruzer, the source does not change and I cannot select USB as the source manually. I purchased several of these drives and am quite disappointed that they do not work. Please help.

Ok I figured it out. Sandisk has a tool to remove the U3 capability from the thumbdrive therefore making it a normal mass storage device.

U3 is most likely the problem... pick up a usb drive that is blank (kingston is good) and try again after loading the music you want.

I bought a used car and it already had a kenwood kdc-x890 installed. my question is when i plug my zune or even just a mp3 player into the usb port it responds with [n/a data].


The KDC-X890 will play MP3s that are stored on a USB mass storage device, such as a USB thumb drive. It won't play music from another MP3 player such as a Zune through the USB port, but you could plug your MP3 player into the auxiliary jack.

How do you connect the ipod to the ida-x300


The IDA-X300 has a USB jack on the back of the unit.
You can plug an iPod USB cable (just like you use to connect the iPod to the computer) into this jack, or you can attach a USB thumb drive loaded with music files.

It is not compatible with generic MP3 players other than the iPod, but you can buy an adaptor (KCA-121B Ai-NET/RCA) which will let you connect axillary inputs like MP3 player, DVD players, etc.

Does this answer your question? Feel free to use the "add comment" link if I can explain anything else.
If this helped, please be sure to hit the "thumbs-up" for me!

Can I play music from a Thumb Drive on an Alpine CDA-105E


Yes, simply mount it in explorer from windows, and then simply use the files as ya would if they were on the hard Drive DVD etc. It's no different.

I cant play my mp3 on my Usb stereo


make sure that when you put your songs to your thumbdrive that they dont get compressed,,, sometimes when your putting songs on them they will automatically compress, which would cause some work and the ones compressed to only work on a computer

The real issue here is Digital Rights Management (DRM). 
Most purchased MP3/WMA/AAC songs are protected by a DRM license.
The only players that can play it are those 1) capable of handling the type of DRM and 2) registered with the correct DRM license.
That's why I only buy music through Amazon.com, because the music is not DRM protected, and you can just copy it to your USB thumb drive or any player you own. I do this all the time with a Pioneer car receiver that has USB capability. Works fine.

Soundstorm SMP3-100R CD player


I have had this problem before with mine. I found that it was one of the tracks I had on my flash drive was corrupt, I don't remember which track it was but if I plugged my drive in it would play until it got to that track and then it would just swith over to radio or cd. I had the same problem with a cd I had burned a bunch of MP3's on. If you erase your flashdrive, reformat it and then try saving songs to it again that should take care of the problem as long as you find out which file has the corruption in it and you don't put it back on your flashdrive.

I would recommend trying a clean thumb drive with no software, only mp3/wma files. Having software and other files that are not audio may cause problems.
