If your Sony has female RCA Aux inputs, then you can use that going headphone out of MP3 player to the RCA inputs. You won't be able to view or controll any other player from the head unit except an iPod.

Ok...I have an Alpine CDE-9845 and i wish to play my ipod by using an aux cord but i have no clue where to plug it in at


Hello,

You will first need an audio cable that has a 3.5mm male end on both sides of the cable.

You will plug in one end into your mp3 player, and the other end into the 3.5mm audio jack on the front of your cd player. On rare occasions its on the back of the cd player.

Then instead of putting your cd player on the radio, or cd, the other option will be Aux. Start your mp3 player up and you should be able to hear it on your car audio system.

This is the standard setup for running an mp3 player through your car stereo. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Dose it work with an ipod connected to it


Not without a sony ipod adaptor. The usb connector on the front is not compatible with ipod. I just use standard usb keys though. way cheaper, smaller and less stealable than ipods.

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.

Does this answer your question? Feel free to use the "add comment" link if I can explain anything else.

Help with ipod connection to cd player


You must use 1 of 3 methods to connect your iPod
1. FM modulator to wirelessly broadcast on a low FM band
2. iPod 3.5mm male/male direct connect cable.
3. iPod USB connection - with Pioneer iPod adapter module.

The direct connect 3.5mm port is on the back of the unit. One plugs into the radio - one plugs into the iPod headphone port.

How can i connect my ipod to my kenwood kdc-mp7028???


If you dont have an MP3 or Ipod input, then the best way is to buy an FM transmitter. This device plugs into your cigarette lighter and when connected to the Ipod will transmit the signal to the stereo unit. this device is actually like a micro radio station that you have to tune in on the Kenwood. These units are available at Wal-Mart, K-Mart, or online at Ebay, and Amazon.

MP3, IPOD, CD doesn't appear when I press "Source"


Easy.

If you read your owner's maunal, page 26, the USB is designed for a flash drive (up to 4GB), not an Ipod.
If you would like to play your iPOD, purchase the IPC008 (Ipod Lead) and you're done!

Connecting iPod to Panasonic CQ-C5310U


I'm pretty sure that there are RCA jacks in the back of the unit for the aux input. Don't have my owners manual so can't really say, but if there is an aux input, there is sure to be some RCA jacks in the back. So if you take the stereo out, look for those jacks then attach a 1/8 "Y" connector. Then route that wire to the front. Then you'll have something to connect your mp3 player to. =)
