When i connect ipod to idj2 it still shows up old library...
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...
Re: when i connect ipod to idj2 it still shows up old...
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!
Re: when i connect ipod to idj2 it still shows up old...
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!!!!

it maybe due to protected files. some songs (files) are classified protected.. this very frustrating problem is the birth child of .... you guessed it ...apple. eg i have 2250 files on my ipod but can only play around 1900 on the idj2. i hope this helps
chances are you will have a corrupt file in there somewhere. i had the same problem when it stops it will show what song it is stuck in the progress bar if you no wat i mean? delete that song and start again
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".
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.
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
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
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.
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..
