The version of numark library that u use might be a problem... it is likely that it treats files as broken and doesnt read them at all.....  Improved detection and rejection of invalid files such as Apple Lossless files within an M4A container. These will not be imported into the library.
This occurs when you:

* Drag music from another location into iTunes.
* Addmusic to iTunes using "Add to library..." ("Add file to library..." and"Add folder to library..." on Windows) from the File menu in iTunes.

Or you may see a message reading:

"Error occurred while converting the file 'song name'. You do not have enough access privileges for this operation."

This can occur when you:

* Import music from an audio CD.
* Convert a song iniTunes to another file format using "Convert Selection to chosenformat" from the Advanced menu in iTunes.

Or you may see a message reading:

"There was an error downloading your purchased music. iTunes couldnot save to your Music Folder because you do not have write access.Check the permissions on your Music Folder, then use the Check forPurchased Music command in the Advanced menu to try again"

These messages occur if permissions are incorrect on your designatedmusic folder or on a folder inside your designated music folder.Permissions are settings that determine who can read, write to, orexecute a file or folder on your computer. Every file and folder onyour hard disk has an associated set of permissions.
Note: Permissions and privileges for files are different fromauthorization to play a song purchased from the iTunes Store. Clickhere for information on authorizing a purchased song to play.
and here are the instruction i can find for fixing permissions (said for xp but vista might work this way to)

if ur using Mac OS
some of the individual band's folders within the library have a padlock symbol.

When u look at them with Get Info there is a message "You can onlyread" immediately above the area where it says I have "Read &Write" privileges.

to unlock them
1. Using Finder, the top level folder of those files that you want to unlock. Switch to List View mode (cmd-2).
2. You should now see a finder pane containing only those files and folders that you want to unlock.
3. Cmd-a to Select All.
4. Open all the sub-folders. With all selected, opt-command-right arrow to open up alllll the children.
5. Cmd-A to select all
6. Opt-Cmd-I to bring up the single pane inspect
7. Unlock

also ensure u have all the read write permissions for the folders clik the following link

if ur not using the computer..... please follow the below procedure....
Rebuild your iTunes library to make sure the XML file is intact and clean. You can find the directions for that here.
Plug in iPid and use the updater to completely restore your iPod to it's factory settings.

i recommend u to reinstall numark library again... try downloading the firmware update for version 1.09 a
i wud however recommend trying podutil... thats the best....
hope that was of help...
thank you have a nice day good luck with ur ipod

I want delete songs from idj2 pls help

There are no songs on the IDJ2
Only on your Harddrive / USb stick or Ipod.
If you want to play songs via the IDJ2, you need the librarian software for using the IDJ2 in combination with you songs.

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

When docking it takes too long transfering data from ipod to idj2

if you have a PC, you're better of preparing a library for your USB/IPOD devices with Librarian 1.50, but only if you are running 1.09(a) firmware on the IDJ2. This is the preferred and quicker way...
Do an upgrade if this is not done yet. Go to
for downloading the files.

When rerunning the librarian(for instance when adding tracks), choose normal mode. It will add every playable track. (you could try this out on an USB stick with some tracks on it for testing purposes).
If this doesn't work, you could have a corrupt library, and have to rebuild(choose advanced in Librarian). Also, when you have created with earlier versions of IDJ2 firmware, then you have to rebuild the whole library.

Numark stated on their forums, when connecting a device, to never choose update, but load instead. It can use mp3/wav/non secured aac files, but not wma..
If there are any other questions, you can also send an e-mail to numark. They are reasonably quick with their responses.

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!

My IDJ2 is unstable

not sure what it can be, but if you used librarian before, be sure that you are running librarian 1.50 with fw 1.09(a). If you have created a library with 1,33, then you have to create the library again with the 1.50 version. Don't use USB powered drives. Mostly they overload the USB port, with al sorts of weird problems. If you have one of these, use an USB powered hub to remove the load of the IDJ2 port. You could test with an USB stick, for a few hours..
