You have to turn off the "DEMO" mode on your Panasonic radio. Check your owner manual for more detail. By default the radio run in "DEMO" mode when you use it for the first time!

New Alpine radio, went through setup, plays fine on radio/tuner on all four speakers, but ipod (USB port) or internal CD only plays on front speakers.


Just a thought - the usb provides a digital signal which carries information about how the signal is to be processed; mono, stereo, surround sound stereo, etc.
If the mp3 music file was only recorded in 2 speaker stereo perhaps that is how it plays back.

Admittedly the radio signal is stereo and yet it plays on four speakers but unless it is a DAB radio it is analogue and maybe that makes a difference.

Perhaps there is an internal electronic fault with the digital processing part of the unit. I suggest reading the handbook again and then perhaps contacting the seller.

MY USB port says reading when i connect a USB drive. WHy?


ANSWER: The USB is not going to work with your iPod. It is intended to be used with a flash drive or external hard drive with a folder structure containing either .mp3 or .wma files.
REASON: The way the USB works on the system is that it reads all the files and folders on the entire device and will say "reading" until it reads all the files and folders. This should only take a few seconds but if there is tons of files it may take longer. Main problem: An iPod contains much more than just music files and folders - it contains an entire operating system. Worse, the operating system which the iPod uses is protected, keeping other devices except for iTunes from reading the music files.
SOLUTION: You will need to use a flash drive or external hard drive with your USB. This device can only contain music, and the music must be organized into folders. Your iPod will not work. However, you can use Auxiliary input using a cable which both ends are 1/4" headphone jacks, one end going to the iPod and other plugged into your stereo.

I have a kenwood KDC-MP438U stereo. Ipod error.


Hi If anything the stereo was probably designed and tested using a certain version of the Iphones software, now that version 4 has been released the way the IPhone communicates may have changed.

As a result the stereo is no longer able to talk to the phone and vice versa. your probably best off contacting Kenwood direct to see if they are aware of this problem and if there is anything that can be done about it.

Connecting iPod to Panasonic CQ-C5310U


I'm pretty sure that there are RCA jacks in the back of the unit for the aux input. Don't have my owners manual so can't really say, but if there is an aux input, there is sure to be some RCA jacks in the back. So if you take the stereo out, look for those jacks then attach a 1/8 "Y" connector. Then route that wire to the front. Then you'll have something to connect your mp3 player to. =)

Usb kdc-x890 IPOD


The 890 doesn't support iPod control via USB. You can only read plain data storage devices on the USB port, such as a flash drive or portable hard drive. When you plug the iPod in (to a PC or the 890), it doesn't show up as a plain file storage device. Some of the newer Kenwoods do offer direct iPod control via USB. These ones have more "smarts" and are able to properly talk to the iPod and access its music. For the older models, you'll need to buy the special iPod interface, which accesses the iPod like a CD changer.
