    The unit tow which I am referring is a Kenwood Excelon KDC-X890.

  • davidv428 Jan 29, 2009

    I'm afraid I was not clear enough in my description of the problem I am having.



    The flash drive seem to work well because I play only spoken text. I do not, at this point, see a need to play music on the flash drive.



    When I plug my iPod into the unit, however, using the USB cable that is when I get the 'No Music Data" message. The iPod does not play at all on the unit.

  • davidv428 Jan 29, 2009

    Does that mean that the Excelon is not iPod compatible and that is why it won't work? Other than getting another reciever, are there other solutions?

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.

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

Music has become more mobile than ever before, as numerous devices can store and play music on-the-go. Companies have developed car audio decks that incorporate USB ports in the faceplate. This allows flash drives to be plugged into the deck, and music on the drive to be played. Flash drive format issues are minimal, considering nearly all flash drives are formatted in the FAT32 file system by default. FAT32 is readable by any operating system, or stereo deck with a USB por

Determine if the stereo deck in the vehicle is capable of playing music off a USB flash drive. Read the stereo deck user's manual, or inspect the deck faceplate for a USB port. Plug a USB flash drive into an available USB port on a computer. Check the drive to make sure there is enough available space for music files. Using Windows, double-click the desktop icon labeled "My Computer." Right-click the flash drive icon, and select "Properties." Capacity will be shown. Using Mac, click the flash drive icon once it appears on the desktop. Click "File" in the top menu bar, then click "Get Info." A dialog box appears, and capacity is listed. Drag and drop any desired music files onto the flash drive. Be sure the files are in .mp3 format. Although some stereo decks are capable of playing other music types, the .mp3 extension is universal and all decks will play it. Spend a short amount of time organizing the files into folders. Organize by genre, artist, or create mixed playlists. Selecting music while driving will become much less distracting. Close the drive window, and safely eject the flash drive from the computer. Plug the flash drive into the stereo deck of the vehicle. Select the USB port as the music source, via the stereo deck. Read the manufacturer's user manual if unsure of how to change the source. Adjust the volume, listen, and enjoy. Hope this helps.

How to show my music folder in laptop which is in sandisk 2GB memory card ?


Your music folder should be under your user folder. If you have music on your SD card, plug it into the computer and open "Computer". The laptop should detect the card and give it a drive letter. Open it and play the music directly from the card or copy it to your "My Music" folder and play from any media program. If this doesn't answer your question please elaborate on the issue.

Playing itunes music on pny usb


did you sync iTunes with your flash drive ?

Launch iTunes.


Connect your media player with SanDisk memory card installed to your computer through its USB adapter.

Wait for the player's device icon to appear in the iTunes Source pane.


Drag and drop music titles from the library pane directly onto the device icon.

The music will sync onto the player's SD storage.


hope this helps

Bought 4gb sandisk cruzer flash drive stored music from computer but it won't play the music on the car fm transmitter


a flash drive is used mainly for storing of files, you need a device that will play the files you want, in this case a device that plays mp3s and either transfer your music to/through it.
Unless your transmitter states that it plays different media formats that is but i have never heard of that before.
hope this helps.

WHEN YOU PLUG IN THE FLASH DRIVE TO A COMPUTER USB PORT WHAT DO YOU DO IN ORDER TO PLAY MUSIC??? i know a box comes up which says what do you want to do, view files & etc but do not know how to play...


If the autoplay menu doesn't show up, just go to My Computer and double click whichever drive the USB is in. If it does, just view the files, then find and double click the music files you have in the flash drive. It should open whatever music player you have on your computer and play the music.
Hope this helps.

Trying to connect ipod to ps3 and keep getting error code 80110108


If you are trying to play your music on ipod to the PS3, you will need to use a USB flash drive (format to FAT32) copy your music to the flash from your computer and then plug in the flash drive into the PS3. From there you can play your music.

Trying to use Micro SD memory card to put music on my phone. I can see the song titles but get an "Invalid File" message when I try to play music.


You probably need to convert the songs to mp3 format to play on your phone. What model phone and what music format are the songs (what are the last 3 letters of the song name, the file extension?)

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.
