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

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

I want delete songs from idj2 pls help


There are no songs on the IDJ2
Only on your Harddrive / USb stick or Ipod.
If you want to play songs via the IDJ2, you need the librarian software for using the IDJ2 in combination with you songs.

I just got an idj2. I downloaded the firmware. I went through the library process, though I'm not sure what that really did other than take a ton of time. I hooked my ipod touch (16 gig) to the idj2 and it...


Dan... I hate to be the bearer of bad news...
Located at http://www.numark.com/idj2 there is a link called iPod compatibility matrix v1.6 this link tells you which versions of the iPod work great with the idj2 and which versions of the iPod make you want to pick up your idj2 and smash it against a brick wall. Sadly, the iPod Touch falls into the "smash" catagory.

Generation 1 iPod Touch devices can only be used in "DIRECT MODE ONLY" which means you can use them like a cd player or as a music source on 1 channel of the mixer of the idj2.

Both Generation 1 and Generation 2 iPod Touch devices are not supported to be used with the idj2 in "MASS STORAGE MODE".

Still asks me to download librian


The idj2 doesn;t search off your ipod. you have to put libraries together with the librarian tool.

Here is a manual for your idj2 it's clear and will tell you how to import a library to your computer for search and play.

send me your email and I will send you a manual i downloaded steveb661@yahoo.com

Uploading problem


Some things you have to do yourself... It only takes some work to get it right.

For using ipods or harddrives/USB sticks with the IDj2, your best off with creating Numark libraries. This makes the IDj2 quicker when searching/loading tracks.

This can be done on your Mac or PC with
librarian 1.50/IDJ2 1.09(a)firmware combination. If you havent updated your IDJ2 yet, do so. It's the most recent verion, and fixes most problems...
Files can be found on www.numark.com/idj2. Look around in this page. There is also explained how to update with a FAT formatted USB stick.

If you have created a library before, Itunes won't update this library, cause it's made by Numark. Itunes and Numark use both a different database.
If you run Librarian, it will still see the Ipod playlists, and add them accordingly in your Numark database, and can be recalled in the IDJ2.
If you have created libraries with Librarian 1.33 or on the IDJ2 with firmware before 1.09. You have to remove the whole libary, and recreate one with Librarian 1.50.
Mostly there is a directory on the device called " .library ". You can throw this away, and recreate a new library.

Good luck and happy DJ-ing.

regards,
Jack.

When docking it takes too long transfering data from ipod to idj2


Hi,
if you have a PC, you're better of preparing a library for your USB/IPOD devices with Librarian 1.50, but only if you are running 1.09(a) firmware on the IDJ2. This is the preferred and quicker way...
Do an upgrade if this is not done yet. Go to
http://www.numark.com/contentmgr/showdetails.php/id/1230/tt/5
for downloading the files.

When rerunning the librarian(for instance when adding tracks), choose normal mode. It will add every playable track. (you could try this out on an USB stick with some tracks on it for testing purposes).
If this doesn't work, you could have a corrupt library, and have to rebuild(choose advanced in Librarian). Also, when you have created with earlier versions of IDJ2 firmware, then you have to rebuild the whole library.

Numark stated on their forums, when connecting a device, to never choose update, but load instead. It can use mp3/wav/non secured aac files, but not wma..
If there are any other questions, you can also send an e-mail to numark. They are reasonably quick with their responses.

regards

My IDJ2 is unstable


Hi,
not sure what it can be, but if you used librarian before, be sure that you are running librarian 1.50 with fw 1.09(a). If you have created a library with 1,33, then you have to create the library again with the 1.50 version. Don't use USB powered drives. Mostly they overload the USB port, with al sorts of weird problems. If you have one of these, use an USB powered hub to remove the load of the IDJ2 port. You could test with an USB stick, for a few hours..

regards,
Jack.
