Question about Kenwood KDC-MP438U Car CD/ MP3 Player

1 Answer

I have installed the receiver and it played the music from my USB flash drive very well, but few days ago it stopped playing (displaying NA files)...then it's not recognizing that the flash drive is plugged in...when I press SRC to USB, the display will only flash READING for few seconds and not playing any music or do anything...I have tried several different flash drives but it's not helping...I tried playing audio CD and the same problem occurred...is something broken inside to make this happen?

How can i get my ipod working through the USB connection on Kenwood CD Receiver?


It looks only the U359 supports the iPod.
On page 7 of the manual where the USB connection is explained, only this number is mentioned.
The numbers are to the left of the front picture.
The manual is still online.

Trying to play flash drive in USB port on stereo


Make sure that the music files are indeed mp3 format. An iPod will play several different formats but most av head units only play mp3. A lot of the songs that are downloaded from iTunes are actually mp4

You might have to reset the logic by disconnecting the power to the unit. Remove the fuse temporarily, or both fuses if it has 2.

When I plug my iPhone into the USB it doesn't


ANSWER: The headphone jack will not charge your iPod. Only the USB will charge your iPod. However, the headphone jack will play music, but the USB will not play music from your iPod.
REASON: The headphone jack does not provide any power to charge your iPod. It isnly has enough power to recieve a music signal.
REASON WHY YOU CANNOT PLAY IPOD THROUGH THE USB: The USB is only intended to be used with a flash drive or external hard drive with a folder structure containing either .mp3 or .wma files. The way the USB works on the system is that it reads all the files and folders on the entire device and will say "reading" until it reads all the files and folders. This should only take a few seconds but if there is tons of files it may take longer. Main problem: An iPod contains much more than just music files and folders - it contains an entire operating system. Worse, the operating system which the iPod uses is protected, keeping other devices except for iTunes from reading the music files.
TO PLAY MUSIC FROM USB (NOT IPOD): You will need to use a flash drive or external hard drive with your USB. This device can only contain music, and the music must be organized into folders. Your iPod will not work. However, you can use Auxiliary input using a cable which both ends are 1/4" headphone jacks, one end going to the iPod and other plugged into your stereo.
SOLUTION: To charge your iPod, you need to plug it into USB. However, to play music, you need to plug your iPod into the headphone jack.
Good Luck! - Chris Proia

USB message "No Music Data"


First you need to make sure you have the right formats saved onto the flash drive. The "mp3" format is the most common. Second, once you put the flash drive into the head unit, it should auto detect, if not then you need to put it on USB. Try that and get back to me.
