Question about Numark iDJ2 - DJ iPOD Mixer Docking Station

I too have the lighted USB keyboard that stops working

It came with the case when I purchased the iDJ2. Frustration and a gig that prevented me from returning it, left me with no other choice than to purchase another after market USB keyboard - that is similar in size, but lacks the back light. SInce the new keyboard was used, I have not had any more problems - which to me - means that the keyboard has a bug and not the iDJ2 software (USB controller).

I've had my iDJ2 for about a week and had keyboard issues like you're describing, however I think I may have figured out a solution. It seems to me that if I activate the number lock key, it works fine and I never have any problems. I'm not sure why this would be, but it seems to do the trick. Just make sure to press the number lock key after you turn the unit on.

I never purchased the idj2 USB keyboard. I went to Walmart and purched a $9 USB keyboard and have never had an issue ever. Of course if I were to ever get the flite case the keyboard I have would never fit in it. But they do sell backlit "rubber" indestructible" keyboard which might fit in the keyboard drawer of the hard case.

    Look up USB Backlit Computer Keyboard
    on eBay. There are these rubber keyboards that they sell that are similar in size that are backlit and waterproof and you can rol them up or fold them in half. Virtually indestructible!

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)

Jack

I just got an idj2. I downloaded the firmware. I went through the library process, though I'm not sure what that really did other than take a ton of time. I hooked my ipod touch (16 gig) to the idj2 and it...


Dan... I hate to be the bearer of bad news...
Located at http://www.numark.com/idj2 there is a link called iPod compatibility matrix v1.6 this link tells you which versions of the iPod work great with the idj2 and which versions of the iPod make you want to pick up your idj2 and smash it against a brick wall. Sadly, the iPod Touch falls into the "smash" catagory.

Generation 1 iPod Touch devices can only be used in "DIRECT MODE ONLY" which means you can use them like a cd player or as a music source on 1 channel of the mixer of the idj2.

Both Generation 1 and Generation 2 iPod Touch devices are not supported to be used with the idj2 in "MASS STORAGE MODE".

How to download firmware and librarian files to my idj2


The current firmware available is version v1.13 which is located at http://www.numark.com/idj2 . It also has Librarian v1.5 included with it.

Download the firmware to your PC and then unzip it to your desktop where you can retrieve it easily.

Transfer the firmware file to the handy little 128mb thumb drive that came with the idj2. (I moved all of the files from the thumb drive on to my PC so the firmware file was the only file on my thumb drive to avoid any computer related confusion)

Making sure your idj2 is powered "OFF" insert the thumb drive containing firmware v1.13 into one of the rear USB ports. Make sure this is the only thing plugged into the idj2 at this time(no keyboard, ect)

Turn on the idj2 on. You will see a message that says the machine is checking the firmware.(I don't have the system in front of me right now but that is roughly what it says) It will take a few minutes and the system will update to the new firmware.

How do I get my keyboard to work on the idj2? Keyboard will not continue to work. Have to unplug and replug every couple minutes to get it to work


1. I would suggest rebooting the device first.
2. If the problem persists try a different USB keyboard.
3. I'm assuming you have installed the Librarian software on you PC and formated you mp3 memory component to it already, if you haven't done it, do it, that is the primary component of the search engine feature of the idj2.
4. If the keyboard is still flaky try installing the firmware version 1.13 if you don't have it already.
5. If the problem is still there I would be concerned with calling Numark and getting a replacement unit ASAP.
