SOURCE: No sound with USB and IPOD Apline IDA-X100

You connected your blue alpine wire (power antenna) to your blue wire (amplifier remote on) on the BMW harness adapter. You need to undo this, amputate your blue alpine wire (because your E36 has no power antenna) and connect the alpine blue wire with white stripe (remote power) to your blue wire on the harness adapter.

When you switch source from the radio, alpine is shutting off your amplifier through the connected power antenna wire. Since you're not listening to the radio anymore, it sees no reason why it should give it power.

SOURCE: Alpine ida-x001 volume is low even if stereo is

Most newer car receivers have a feature named something like "level balancing" in which you can adjust the relative loudness of each input (Tuner, CD, AUX, IPOD). Check you owner's manual for a similar function.

Also, are you or can you turn the level of the ipod itself up a bit?

SOURCE: IPOD is hanging but can't be reset.

i would try reformatting your ipod to factory specs (can be easily done with itunes following the information provided at mac.com)

to reset the ipod, turn it off, then on -- then hold down the 'menu' key while pressing the center 'click' key until you get the apple logo. this just may solve the problem.

SOURCE: cant connect my ex 10 to my x300 head unit

Hi Jared,

The EX-10 was never intended to be an accessory to the IDA-X300, but should work with FM modulation like any other radio, by making sure the FM frequency is set the same on both units. There are four preset channels in the EX-10 but you can change each one to any frequency.

As for the bluetooth mic connection, you must have that connected for the bluetooth to work. You are better off installing a KCE-400BTi handsfree kit to get better functionality, increased phone compatibility, increased audio quality and the ability to use all of the newer iPods (Gen 2 iTouch, Gen 4 Nano and iPhone 3G).

Hope it helps,

Marcel.

SOURCE: my alpine ida-x100 can read flash drives but not a

The hard drive must be formatted in FAT 16 or 32 for the Alpine to recognise its there. It came pre-formatted in NTFS.This is an easy fix once you know the problem. Just save your data/music onto another drive.Then use a program like easeus partition master (free download) to reformat the external drive in FAT32. Move your music/data back onto the drive and the Alpine will now see the drive and all your music. As a matter of interest some people say you cant format a drive bigger than 32Gb in FAT32, but I had no problem with the above method on a seagate 500Gb drive. Also apparently some head units cant deliver enough power to spin up an external usb powered drive, but again I had no problems with the above combination

Is there an update for the alpine ida-x300 to run the new generation ipods ? It states, on the connected ipod / iphone, that it will not charge.


If you get the ALPINE KCX-422TR or search ebay for "12V TO 5V CHARGING FOR iPOD iPHONE" you can get a fix for your iphone cable. Basically the new iphone/ipods use 5v not 12v like the older models.

How do you connect the ipod to the ida-x300


The IDA-X300 has a USB jack on the back of the unit.
You can plug an iPod USB cable (just like you use to connect the iPod to the computer) into this jack, or you can attach a USB thumb drive loaded with music files.

It is not compatible with generic MP3 players other than the iPod, but you can buy an adaptor (KCA-121B Ai-NET/RCA) which will let you connect axillary inputs like MP3 player, DVD players, etc.

Does this answer your question? Feel free to use the "add comment" link if I can explain anything else.

Aipine ida x 100,usb device error


Are you using the original Alpine iPod USB cable? If not, that could be the problem. The iDA-X100 will only read iPods using the Alpine cable. Otherwise, you get a "USB Device Error."
