Alpine IDA-X300 not playing mp3

I have just purchased and had installed an Alpine IDA-X300.It works fine on radio - very nice sound.And it connects, and controls my iPod and USB drive. It reads the files from both devices. I can search through the mp3 files, and play them.The problem is that it says it is playing them. The timer ticks by showing where it is in the song. I can pause and restart it. But, no sound comes out at all.I have tried different AAC files. And mp3 files from different sources. I even took a audio CD and converted it fresh using iTunes (latest version) and put the files onto my USB stick. But still it finds and plays them, but no sound comes out at all. Like I said the radio is playing fine. What do I do next?

Is there an update for the alpine ida-x300 to run the new generation ipods ? It states, on the connected ipod / iphone, that it will not charge.


If you get the ALPINE KCX-422TR or search ebay for "12V TO 5V CHARGING FOR iPOD iPHONE" you can get a fix for your iphone cable. Basically the new iphone/ipods use 5v not 12v like the older models.

Are you using the KCE-422i cable included with the unit? The iPod will not work plugged into the USB port with the factory Apple cable. You need to use the silly Alpine cable.

How do you connect the ipod to the ida-x300


The IDA-X300 has a USB jack on the back of the unit.
You can plug an iPod USB cable (just like you use to connect the iPod to the computer) into this jack, or you can attach a USB thumb drive loaded with music files.

It is not compatible with generic MP3 players other than the iPod, but you can buy an adaptor (KCA-121B Ai-NET/RCA) which will let you connect axillary inputs like MP3 player, DVD players, etc.

Cant connect my ex 10 to my x300 head unit


Hi Jared,

The EX-10 was never intended to be an accessory to the IDA-X300, but should work with FM modulation like any other radio, by making sure the FM frequency is set the same on both units. There are four preset channels in the EX-10 but you can change each one to any frequency.

As for the bluetooth mic connection, you must have that connected for the bluetooth to work. You are better off installing a KCE-400BTi handsfree kit to get better functionality, increased phone compatibility, increased audio quality and the ability to use all of the newer iPods (Gen 2 iTouch, Gen 4 Nano and iPhone 3G).

Hope it helps,

Marcel.

IPOD is hanging but can't be reset.


i would try reformatting your ipod to factory specs (can be easily done with itunes following the information provided at mac.com)

to reset the ipod, turn it off, then on -- then hold down the 'menu' key while pressing the center 'click' key until you get the apple logo. this just may solve the problem.

No sound with USB and IPOD Apline IDA-X100


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.
