Clarion Car Audio won't read Sony Walkman by USB connection
I have a new Sony walkman nwz-e436f that won't be read by my Clarion player dxz385usb in my car. It says ''Error 2.'' The Clarion website just says that there is sometimes an issue with newer Sony product - ''special software'' to read them? Is there another type of transfer wire than plain old USB to convert the data necessary to play my files on my Clarion? PLEASE HELP!
I have the same problem with my Clarion vrx 785bt. I get the same error 2 message. Any help?

If you have a blank screen while listening to an audio source (Radio, CD, USB, etc.) the interconnecting ribbon cable that goes from the system board to the display module could be damaged/cracked and needs to be replaced.
The Clarion VZ401 can only play audio (MP3 or WMA) files from a USB device. This is listed in the manual on both page 33 (USB Operations) and page 46 (Specifications). This unit can't play audio file with DRM and some USB drives may not be compatible with the device. It can play some videos from some IPod/IPhone models with the Clarion CCA-750 adapter. This is a USB to RCA composite stereo audio/video jacks cable. This feature isn't compatible with the Lightning connector or some versions of the iOS operating system. To view any other videos, you need to play them back on a device that can directly connect to the composite RCA audio/video ports (AUX In or AV In).
I hope this helps. The list of compatible IPod and IPhone models is available from Crutchfield on the VZ401 Details tab: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-ix4f1cAUkb9/p_020VZ401/Clarion-VZ401.html . This tab also has a link to the manual; the direct link is http://d2stobyut4u5rx.cloudfront.net/ImageBank/v20150407084800/Manuals/020/020VZ401.PDF .
The DVD players are usually installed by the automotive manufacturer, and are tied into the car's stereo system. It project audio into the car's speakers. aftermarket car dvd units also can tie into the car's speaker systems, but may have their own independent speakers. A lot of units come with the wired or wireless headphones, so you can watch a DVD in the backseat, without disturbing others. More information www.justcardvd.com
You need a composite video cable to the Clarion Video input. The usual ipod adapter is for audio only. If you have an AV ipod adapter and you still don't have video, the signal is not strong enough for the clarion to see it and you need a 12volt pre amp. you can find them online starting around 25. Hope this helps
