Can't use librarian on my iPod

When I go into Librarian, my PC won't recognise my iPod classic, even though iTunes talks to it fine. 'My Computer' doesn't even recognise the iPod - do I need to put the iPod into Disk Mode?

Also, I've tried running librarian on the IDJ2 (instead of PC) by clicking 'upload' when I plug the iPod in but a) I have to keep pressing buttons to stop it going into Demo mode and b) it takes ages, never finishes updating and then won't recognise any tracks on the iPod.

Hope you can help. Would rather just use iPod than external USB drive.

Thanks,

Dan.

The ipod itunes programs are the only one who recognize that device, that is why you cant it in your computer.. but if you see it... its your own risk to open it but if you copy some songs or video it will not play...

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.

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


Hi,
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
http://www.numark.com/contentmgr/showdetails.php/id/1230/tt/5
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.

regards

Jack

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!
