I was using my idj2 with mi ipod. everything was working fine..my brother deleted my ipod libray, all songs erased. Luckily i just reloaded them from itunes..However the idj2 shows some old songs from my previous ipod library..even though that original library was deleted. Basically it loads up songs that dont exist...

    It seems that I have the same problem, my ipod songs were erased then loaded back into my ipod. When I put my ipod back into the idj2, it loaded all the songs twice. The songs that were loaded the first time says the file does not exist? How do I get rid of the non existing files?

I have the same problem. But it's easy to fix. You must connect your ipod to a pc and then you must go to My computer>(select your ipod and open the folder) and then delete the folder -   .Library   - It's done!

It sounds like everyone is saying the same thing. I am having the same problem. My idj2 is producing duplicates of some of the songs and there is a selection under the artist option that says <unknown>. When I click on the file from the idj2 it says that this file no longer exists. I have tried to use the edit button to delete it with no luck. It seems like the <unknown> is actually producing more <unknown>s in the track section every time I take out my ipod and reinstall. So this is what I have done that did not produce results:
1. Tried to restore the idj2 back to its factory settings with no luck.The only thing that was different was that I had to change the demo mode from automatic to never.
2. I restored my ipod classic back to its factory settings in an attempt to find any corrupted files; however, they all came back clean. So I reloaded all 6,000 songs back on to my ipod classic.
3. All of my firmware is up-to-date and installed.

I sat my Ipod in the cradle and it displayed the duplicate songs and the <unknown>s.

4. After reading this I tried going into librarian, then went into advanced and clicked on the last choice, the forced update and after it was done I deleted my existing library. After that, I used the librarian to use the recommended create tables.

5. Now everything that could have possibly been wrong has been restored. My ipod is currently updating on my idj2. Let's hope it fixed the problem.

Thanks everyone for your input and if anyone else has ideas please let me know. Much appreciated!!!!

    UPDATE FROM NOV. 26TH SOLUTION BY ACIAFARD:

    Jackpot!!!! number 4 of my solution worked! So for everyone who is having problems with the duplicate song and/or unknown (no file exists) selection on the idj2 this is what you need to do.

    Go into librarian and select the USB/iPod device, next click into advanced, and then click on the last option (the forced update). *NOTE: I had to unselect the recommended creating tables option but I am uncertain if everyone will have to do this* After the librarian was done doing it's thing (which took about 10 min for 6,000 songs) the next screen in the box asked if I wanted to delete my existing
    library. I clicked on this and it deleted it *NOTE: It didn't delete the songs on my Ipod just what was stored in librarian, so don't worry about losing your songs*

    Then, I went back into librarian, clicked on the device that I am using, clicked advanced, unselected the last option (the forced update), clicked on the recommended creating tables option, and let it do its thing again (this time it took about an hour).

    Finally, I placed my iPod back in the dock on the idj2, chose update, and it fixed the problem. Oh happy days!!!! Hope this helps.

All you need to do is a forced update which is in the Advanced tab of the librarian software. I now do this each time I put anything on it, as we have several iPods of the one mixer.

Try to run librarian again, and do a full rebuild. Use the correct firmware/librarian version for your model, but preferrably upgrade to 1.09(a) and librarian 1.50

regards,
Jack.

    Hi again, and to be a bit more clearly.

    The library is a directory on your USB/Harddrive/Ipod, and is called

    .library

    If you throw away that directory, your library made by Librarian is removed. Please run the Librarian again to recreate a new one


  • megajack Mar 06, 2009

    By the way, there is a new firmware 1.13 available

How do I delete music off of a coby mp829 player


I don't have this particular device. Although some players will let you delete files from the device alone, some won't. But an mp3 player should show up on your desktop computer as an external memory storage device when connected via USB. You can open it and delete music files by dragging to trash, or by right-clicking and selecting Delete. (Windows, but probably similar on Mac).

I have a Toshiba Satellite A665-S6088. The last time I used it was last night and everything worked fine. It works with Windows 8.1, it has for a few months now, never had any problems until now. No...


Unplug the unit from ac power. Remove the battery. Wait a minute. Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. (Yes, I know, nothing will happen visible). Replace battery. Plug unit back in. Now try the power button and see if the unit resets. Sometimes this helps when all else fails especially with a computer which has "hung up" like yours. Let me know if this worked!

Marantz how to connect 6005 amplifier to ipod


There are many solutions, I show two. The tip photo, shows a more expansive one. the lower photo the cheaper one. But both have two tulip plugs on the side for the amplifier and one 3,5 mm stereo telephone plug to the other side.
I tried both on a good stereo set, and could not hear different quality in sound. My guess, the quality comping from my iPods, iPhone and iPad is not the same as from my CD player. On the CD player, a better cable proved to give a better sound.

How to reset my combination lock number on ipod A1236


Hi William
If you have forgotten the code or put the wrong code in your ipod, you can unlock the Ipod by doing the following:
Connect your IPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one Ipod synced with), and open iTunes.
When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
If you can't unlock Ipod using either (the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs). . . you can restore your ipod to factory settings using ipod Updater.
Please note that this will erase all data on your ipod.
Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your ipod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your Ipod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone.
All of your songs and files will be deleted.
Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your ipod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize.
If you can't unlock your ipod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the Ipod, which will erase all music and data.
