Question about Numark iDJ2 - DJ iPOD Mixer Docking Station

1 Answer

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

Docked my ipod for the first time it too quite a while to load but it worked.

added more tracks to the ipod, docked it then selected update, it took over 2hrs & never loaded, I've tried it a few times but I still get the same result, but I can still play the same tunes that I loaded the first time.

    I have the same problem as well but if I choose Load instead of Update it doesn't recognize a device in the dock. Mine is an ipod that has been updated on a Mac with the latest version of Librarian. I've done the 1.09 firmware update and it still will not load. Any solution for Mac based rigs?

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

Jack

I have an ipod touch 2nd gen and it wont recoginize anything when docked with my IDJ2? Confused??? I put a flash drive in a USB port they all come right up!!


connect the ipod to PC..... first make sure you have the latest Itunes (http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/) 10.2.2 now plug ipod to PC..... Itunes should pop up automatic... now check to see if your ipod has the latest firmware for its generation (ipod touch 2gen) if not update it, this should also help the docking problems...now (always always eject your ipod, do not ever ever just unplug the ipod)
have fun feel free to comment on the help

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.

Video won't work using the s-video connector.


Which iPod model are you using? Not all iPod models support video with the iDJ2. Check the iPod compatibility matrix document at www.numark.com/idj2 to see if your model is supported.

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

Can't get the ipod touch to play on the docking station


I had the same problem. Look at the documentation site of Numark

Ipod touch isn't supported for mixing (1st gen is supported for Direct play)

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.
