    I need the same information. Thanks

    I as well cannot figure out how to do this. I have a jump drive with jpg files on it but when the device loads I can only see them as titled but they are not viewable. In the settings menu I am not able to say change background as it is not highlighted as selectable, just dark gray. I have even tried a disc with pictures on it. But the play will only play these as a slide show and not allow my to set them as the background.

How do I upload images to my deck from my usb drive and how do I make the image my background?


!FIRST!
Make sure you are not listening to a CD or the USB device while trying to upload! Select something like the radio as the active source!
!2nd!
It can only load .jpg. Also, the images are stored on the USb drive, except for the on you upload as a background. That one is saved on the unit itself.

Go to settings on the menu at the right, then "User Interface". Under "User Background" select "Memory".
Select the folder your picture is in and then the picture itself.

DONE!
I have a quick question about YOUR specific unit. Does it display your MP3s on the USB device in numerical order? Mine always display them in alphabetical track title order, which is dumb.
I'm afraid my unit is defective...

How to down load pictures into the d-3?


The deck takes .jpeg images. They have to be resized to 500X240 pixels.

You can resize any picture here:

Then burn the images onto a cd-r as a data cd. When you insert the cd, go to the settings on the deck and change your background to what you burned on the cd

How can put background on my kvt-514


1. Plug a USB drive with the picture(s) you want on the KVT-514 into the USB input. - If there is any music or videos on the usb drive, the USB function of the player will try to take over. If this happens, change the function to something else (DVD or FM radio, etc... anything EXCEPT USB) 2. Go into Setup (is bottom button on main screen on US versions) 3. Select "User Interface" 4. on the first page, there should be some background options. The first is the current background (and a way to change to any loaded picture). The second is what you need to pay attention to. There is an "Eject" symbol Button and a "Memory" button. Select "Memory" - It may take a little while, as it will read the USB device. Be patient. 5. After it reads the USB drive, it will display the contents as a external drive (it displays files, folders, etc.). Folders with files that the radio recognizes (pictures, music, videos, etc) will be highlighted in a bright white text while folders not containing them will be grey. Select the folder that the file is in and then the file. Alternately, if the file is in the root (not in a folder), just select the file. The transfer may take a while, be patient.
Hope this helps you.

Custom Background Images


I was using a memorex ultra speed cd-rw and did not work, but i decided to use a regular cd-r digital audio and it worked! Just creat a folder named BG and place up to 20 jpeg pictures in that folder, then place 100MB of files (Not mp3) outside the folder and burn it onto the cd and youre done!

Background picture


The manual says to create a directory BG to put the pictures in and it has to be in JPEG format. Also you need to write some empty data to the disc as in some other file maybe to make the total CD size 100MB or more

Kenwood dnx7100 pictures


Only a couple of mine are showing up. My guess is that the pictures are either the wrong format or that there is simply no photo loaded in the particular MP3.
