    Hi,
    install and start the application, and select a drive which you would like to be used with a library. Your IDj2 will be happy with it...
    If you have party music on a USB stick or an external drive F:\ and would like to use this music with the IDj2, choose F:\
    For your Ipod you 'll have to do the same. Look it up in explorer, and you'll find your Ipod represented by a drive letter. You can then pick this letter for creating a library on your Ipod.

    You can select several options. If you move the mouse pointer over the options, some helptext will be shown and give an explanation what most options do. Depending on the selection you can create tracks with profiles, which gives a visual representation of the total track. this is easy for cue-ing, e.g. where to put your mixing start of your chosen music. One thing, if you chose this option, It will take hours to create a library. I have some 30.000 tracks on a harddrive, and if you choose creating profiles in libarian for this amount of tracks, be prepared that it can take a day or so.

    Interupting the creation could leave your library in an unusable state and then you have to rerun the process al over again. Just start the easy way... I mostly choose "normal" and thats fine for most of us. If you do so, it will drastically improve loading times of your tracks on the IDj2.

    Manuals can also be downloaded from the Numark Website, and there some more explanations to be found about using Librarian....
    If you have more technical questions about your IDj2, you can also send Numark technical support an e-mail. There really quick with their responses.

    Regards,
    Jack.

How to add songs


Open iTunes and plug in your iPod. On the left sidebar there should be your iPod name (If you can't find the sidebar, go to iTunes menu bar, under View, select Show Sidebar), go to your iTunes playlist and drag the songs you want to your iPod. For all of the songs, go to your iPod music library, even if you don't have songs, and on the bottom there should be a blue-ish bar. There might be a box saying "Autofill from iTunes library" click that ONLY if you want ALL songs from your iTunes to your iPod.
If you want to know how to put video or DVD movie onto iPod, I think this step by step guide would help you.

You just need to import your songs into iTunes library, then make a playlist with the songs, connect your iPod to computer, iTunes will detect the iPod automatically, then click iTunes menu "File -> Sync iPod", the songs will be transferred from iTunes to iPod. If you want to know how to put video or DVD movie onto iPod, I think this step by step guide would help you.

Idj2 will not recognize my external hard drive


Also try the second port on the back,
try a USB stick with some songs on it, to see if the USB ports are working. If the USB stick works,
Could be the format the External unit is formatted in. Using FAT32 is recommended, look in the manual (downloadable form numark.com) for supported formats.
Preferrable an external HD, which has its own power supply, not fed by the USB ports on the IDJ2 (max 0.5 A)

Firmware update wont load!!!


Once you get the firmware problem solved the library software should be loaded on a PC or Mac then hook up the USB device or IPOD as a USB drive to that computer. The library software will build search tables on the USB device when selected as Full option in the software. The keyboard should search then......

Still asks me to download librian


The idj2 doesn;t search off your ipod. you have to put libraries together with the librarian tool.

Here is a manual for your idj2 it's clear and will tell you how to import a library to your computer for search and play.

send me your email and I will send you a manual i downloaded steveb661@yahoo.com

Uploading problem


Some things you have to do yourself... It only takes some work to get it right.

For using ipods or harddrives/USB sticks with the IDj2, your best off with creating Numark libraries. This makes the IDj2 quicker when searching/loading tracks.

This can be done on your Mac or PC with
librarian 1.50/IDJ2 1.09(a)firmware combination. If you havent updated your IDJ2 yet, do so. It's the most recent verion, and fixes most problems...
Files can be found on www.numark.com/idj2. Look around in this page. There is also explained how to update with a FAT formatted USB stick.

If you have created a library before, Itunes won't update this library, cause it's made by Numark. Itunes and Numark use both a different database.
If you run Librarian, it will still see the Ipod playlists, and add them accordingly in your Numark database, and can be recalled in the IDJ2.
If you have created libraries with Librarian 1.33 or on the IDJ2 with firmware before 1.09. You have to remove the whole libary, and recreate one with Librarian 1.50.
Mostly there is a directory on the device called " .library ". You can throw this away, and recreate a new library.

Good luck and happy DJ-ing.

regards,
Jack.

I need to reset the system of numark idj2


Latest firmware / Librarian version? I've seen this happening on my ownIDJ2 when using older versions than 1.09(a).

If using old USB devices, transfer rates could have impact. Try an new USB device, defragged if possible.

Could be that you have a problem with the library. Try a rebuild...

When i connect ipod to idj2 it still shows up old library...


I have the same problem. But it's easy to fix. You must connect your ipod to a pc and then you must go to My computer>(select your ipod and open the folder) and then delete the folder -   .Library   - It's done!
