The Alpine cda-7842 was not intended to play burned cd's and Mp3's. I don't recemmend you play anything but store bought cd's. I belive that the laser can be damaged by playing Mp3's and they sometimes make weird noises because of the laser seeking erratically, due to the year that cda-7842 was manufactered.

I have a alpine cda 9815 cd player. it has an auxillary input, am i able to add a usb port connector to it? Or what parts should i add so i can play music through usb flashdisk. thanks


there is no option to add a USB port on this model. An alternative to use a usb flash drive is to use a MP3 with the auxillary input. Cheap MP3 with works fine too.

Does alpine CDA7892 have MP3


Yes it does have MP3 capability.

In the set up menu (press and hold set up button for at least 3 seconds) you need to select CD/MP3 with the up or down buttons. Then use Band button to make sure CD/MP3 is selected and you can play back MP3s that are burned to CD and also ordinary CD tracks.

Thanks for using FixYa. Please do leave a vote for the solution.

My alpine ida x200 keeps skipping during songs


All you can really do is use a CD Player cleaner *one that uses fluid* run it thru a couple times and try a disc again. Clean your CD's with liquid car polish an a microfibre towel, it works wonders for new and old CD's. If it still skips, It needs to be pulled for repair. They just replace the transport, usually runs between 100-150 depending on the service center. Hope this helps.

hmmm if you bought the alpine deck originally your best bet might be to call them, and see about getting it properly repaired. otherwise, check craigslist or ebay for broken alpine decks with the tilt function. should be pretty easy to fix. also you could open up the cd player and check to see if maybe something just slipped off.

The CD45z does not play MP3's ....Nak is about SQ ...since MP3's are poor quality ...this doesn't fit with what Nak is about.
