No sound with USB and IPOD Apline IDA-X100

Hello, I installed a new Alpine IDA X-100 in a 1993 BMW (with adapter harness) The AM and FM works fine, great sound. When I plug in the USB Thumbdrive (MP3 Music installed) and or an IPOD (30 gig), there is no sound. The menu items show up on the Alpine screen, and it shows that the music is playing. Can you help?

    I installed a new Alpine IDA X-100 in a 1991 BMW (with adapter
    harness) The AM and FM works fine, great sound. When I plug in a Thumbdrive (with music files) or an iPod (30 gig) to the USB port, there is no sound, same for the iPod "full speed connector" (KCE-422i) . The menu items
    show up on the Alpine screen, and it shows that the music is playing (using both type of connections) but no sound. Please help, Thank you.

    99 VW GTI, radio works, ipod used to work, randomly stopped working. i know there is a mute button, unfortunatly it is not well labeled and the manual that came with it is about as helpful as a rock. It shows the ipod connected, and playing, but no sound....what the hell is wrong.

You connected your blue alpine wire (power antenna) to your blue wire (amplifier remote on) on the BMW harness adapter. You need to undo this, amputate your blue alpine wire (because your E36 has no power antenna) and connect the alpine blue wire with white stripe (remote power) to your blue wire on the harness adapter.

When you switch source from the radio, alpine is shutting off your amplifier through the connected power antenna wire. Since you're not listening to the radio anymore, it sees no reason why it should give it power.

My ida-x100 doesnt recognise my ipod when using the apple usb cable


I have a similar problem. The original Alpine USB cable fell apart on me and I began receiving an error message. "No, biggie," I thought. "I have plenty of iPod USB cables." But I get an error message with each one, as well as an error message with every iPod I've tried. Apparently the IDA-X100 will only read iPods if you use an original Alpine USB cable.

My alpine ida-x100 can read flash drives but not a portable hard drive. why? can I make it work?


The hard drive must be formatted in FAT 16 or 32 for the Alpine to recognise its there. It came pre-formatted in NTFS.This is an easy fix once you know the problem. Just save your data/music onto another drive.Then use a program like easeus partition master (free download) to reformat the external drive in FAT32. Move your music/data back onto the drive and the Alpine will now see the drive and all your music. As a matter of interest some people say you cant format a drive bigger than 32Gb in FAT32, but I had no problem with the above method on a seagate 500Gb drive. Also apparently some head units cant deliver enough power to spin up an external usb powered drive, but again I had no problems with the above combination

Device Error on ALpin CDA-105 CD reciever


Sorry to say my friend, but the problem is with the Archose. I recently installed a Soundstream unit for a customer of mine, and he had an Archos aswell. The Archose will go in to slave mode, and act as a removeable mass media storage, but that's as far as it will go. Other mass storage units will work fine, you can even use a regular old usb thumb drive, but not the Archose.

Usb device error


The cord might likely the problem. The iDA-X100 will only recognize iPods if you use an original Alpine USB cord. Using any other cable won't work. I had this problem when my Alpine cable fell apart and stopped working. I thought any other cable would work, but that's not the case.

Aipine ida x 100,usb device error


Are you using the original Alpine iPod USB cable? If not, that could be the problem. The iDA-X100 will only read iPods using the Alpine cable. Otherwise, you get a "USB Device Error."
