Re: JVC KD-AVX 40 compatiable USB H/Drive
You can use any non powered USB drive (gains its power from usb only). You just have to plug it into your PC and select Properties > Format then make sure you format it in FAT12, 16 or most commonly (recommended) FAT32 file system.
Once you've done this you can transfer all your music onto it then plug it into the USB port lead from the back of the head unit

Hello there, the JVC unit can play 2 video file formats these are JPEG/MPEG. To watch video you need to have USB audio and video cable for ipod/iphone, KS-U30 to the usb cable from the rear of the unit. When this connection has been made you touch [SRC] then select iPod. When you connect your ipod/iphone to the USB terminal if it is not selected automatically you can select it from the SRC menu. You can check this out on page 49 of the user guide. Also the unit only supports certain file formats which are mpeg and jpeg and also of a certain resolution. This can also be found on page 59 of the user guide. Hope this support has been helpful? Thank you for visiting FixYa.

You are connecting it to a car DVD player, but how many types of music format is it capable of playing? It should be in the Manual, however it will be able to play mp3. *.flac, *.wmv, *.wav, *.cda. But how ere you going to power your external hard disk? If it has provision for use of 12V DC voltage, same as that of the car. After its powered, only then will it work, but the USB connector will provide the output into the DVD players USB slot(just like attaching a flas drive like pen drive which uses the USB slot for power too....sodeep
Another solution here....I have a Kenwood KDC-x991 deck.
Have USB Read error problems..
Anyway I had a 30gb hdd, replaced it with a 100gb (according to manual, will use up to 120gb w/out external power...)
Anyways long story short, the 100gb drive worked fine for....20-25 mins...
I was happy. Now here's the clincher. After 20-25 mins, it gave the USB read error. (instead of resetting the deck and have to make the date/time/eq/sound/setting changes I unplugged the USB drive...changed source from USB to tuner (or anything else for that matter). Then switched back to USB w/ no device installed and after 2 seconds or less, the USB Error disappeard and said no USB device connected....Anyway thats the best way (I've found) to get around the Resetting the deck. Anyway after that from then on I could not get the Hard drive to work for more than 30 seconds. It would play then give me the read error.
Tried a different drive...80gb same prob...went back to the 30, and it was fine.
Tried a 160 (I knew it wasn't going to work) and it didn't either.
Anyway was thinking what to do.....most of the USB external drives I had came with a power port on it aside from the USB port plug. Or the drives came with the Y Cable....
The long part plugs into the Kenwood deck, and then the END of that cable plugs into your USB external drive, and the small piece connects to a (get this...here we gooooo FTW) USB to Cigarette adapter!!!!!
And this worked like a charm on ALL my drives. Stable...and just plain worked great!
Anyway I hope that this will help you guys w/ your usb probs!
