Sorting Doesn't Work

My Alpine does not sort songs by artist. When on the screen where it list playlist, artists, and albums, I would enter playlists and it WOULD show them but when i clicked artists or albums it just listed my songs in alphabetical order.

Here is a no nonsense no bull answer, if this info is not displayed then you have a problem with the reader circuit that decodes this info from the disk, either have it repaired or replace the unit, with today's repair costs replacement is almost always the best option. Thanks for Using Fixya

This might be because you dont know how to use it or because its broken. Buy a new one because it will be hard and expensive to get it fixed. there is no easy way out. i once had a bad player and we ended up getting a new on. before getting rid of it check its warranty and the users manual/troubleshooting manual.

Is there a way to skip through the letters of the alphabet when searching for a song when connected to an ipod?


What I did was to use the Genre setting on each artist to agroup, such as A-E, F-H, etc., and then do a Genre search. That way you only have to search through a smaller group of letters.

Cda-9885 ipod not searching


I had the same problem. I got it resolved by making the MIX OFF. Just press the button number 5 to make the MIX (Random Play)ON/OFF. After the search you can set the MIX to ON. However set the MIX to off before you start any search every time.

No. This unit is designed to choose songs through the deck itself

Will not play all songs on mp3 cd


It's possible you are reaching the 99 folder limit of the deck. Count how many folders (artist folders and album folders) there are between Alkaline Trio through John Butler Trio. The manual says there is a maximum of 99 folders acceptable, but it doesn't say what happens if you have more.
I also assume the bitrate of the songs is 320kpbs or below, yes?
The manual also mentions "Folder hierarchy is allowed up to eight tiers. However, practical hierarchy of folder is less than two tiers", whatever that might mean.

Ipod interface


The adapter was never made to work exactly like the Ipod. Thanks to Apple they have made it very difficult for many makers to recreate the way the stereo searches song to be like the Ipod. Use the scan button to change the way it seeks through songs. You can have it seek by Artist, Album, Genre and Playlist and this is changed each time the scan button is pressed.

Alpine CDA-9856. Search button for IPod will not bring up menu


I have the same problem with a CDE-9870R and my iPod. I tried my daughter's iPod, and it works. I did not search any further, but it may come from the iPod software version. Mine is more up-to-date than hers (5th generation iPod 1.1.2 2006-06-28 update).
