Question about Microsoft Zune Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

Why won't my Zune JS8-00003 play over my Tacoma stereo using the aux jack?

I have a Zune 32G MP2 player, model JS8-00003. I haven't used it in a few years, but have a trip planned to Big Bend NP and want to use it there. Last time I tried to use it in my car was with my Ford Edge, and although it would recognize it, I never could get it to play right on it. I now have a Tacoma truck, and it won't play at all on it choosing the aux option on my truck stereo and using an aux cable. It won't even recognize it, although it shows I have an aux cable plugged in. It also won't work plugging into the USB, it won't even let me choose the option, but it does give the the option of connecting another device, but since the Zune isn't bluetooth enabled I can't connect it. I updated the software to version 4.5 and did a sync, and it still won't work. What am I doing wrong?

SOURCE: Computer doesn't recognize MP3 player -

I had the same problem, all you have to do is first turn on the Mp3.Then go to settings. Then go down to USB mode. It will probably say, auto detect.But instead scroll down to MSC. If that doesn't work try MTP.

SOURCE: my player isn't recognized by the Device Manager or Windows Media Player

I was experiencing this similar problem, and from my research so were alot of other people, what finally worked for me was this:

  • Update all the software on your computer via Phillips site
  • Open the Philips Device Manager
  • With the device connected and the 'connected to pc' screen showing on the GoGear, do a 'soft reset' by holding the Power Off + Volume Up buttons for a few seconds
  • As soon as the device restarts itself, hold the Volume Down button, the computer should now recognize the GoGear
  • Follow the onscreen directions to Repair the device
  • Thank the intarwebs.

How to connect your iPod to a Car Stereo


Many car stereos have more new connections that MP3 playerslike the iPod can be connected and played through the stereo. For new carradio, you only need to connect the device and the MP3 player. If you have anold stereo, connect your iPod or connect a 3.5 mm stereo cable or FMtransmitter. Connect iPod directly to the stereo with a stereo cable willresult in better sound quality on the FM transmitter, which can be interruptedor static signal.

AUX
1. Find an AUX port. The AUX is a hole, only small to belocated on your car radio face. (The size is perfect for connecting headphonesor an auxiliary cable.)

2. Connect the 3.5 mm stereo cable into the hole in front ofyour car.

3. Connect the other end into the hole stereo AUX jack /headphone jack on top of your iPod.

4. Connect your iPod.

5. Activate the AUX input. This will be different for eachcar. You may need to field through your input options (e.g., FM, AM, CD, etc.)to access the AUX. Or you may need for your stereo pressing the Menu button.Then, the options for auxiliary input field to the AUX input as possible.

6. Find a song on your iPod and press the Play button whenthe auxiliary input is activated. If you do not hear anything, make sure thevolume on the iPod device and radio. If the iPod is playing your song, you'llsee the song progresses on the iPod screen.

FM Transmitter
1. Find an FM transmitter that is compatible with the iPod.So let your FM transmitter near your car radio.

2. Connect the iPod to the FM transmitter.

3. Tune the radio to your car radio has a frequency thatonly static, then the vote of the same frequency channel using the buttons +and -.

4. Connect your iPod. Then a number and press"Play." Make sure to turn all your volume on your iPod. You should beable to use his music. If not, find a new frequency until you find one thatworks with the iPod and the transmitter.

How do I listen to music from my phone through my indash??


Most new model in-dash stereos have an auxiliary mini jack input. Connect a mini-jack cable to the auxiliary jack on your in-dash stereo (available at RadioShack or anywhere there are portable music player/smart phone accessories), and connect the other end to the headphone input on your iPhone/smartphone or player.

Change your stereo input to "aux" or "auxiliary" and Voila! Music will play from your car speakers.

Zune problem


ok first off, you need to set your stereo system to aux....remember aux the zune is not a cd player.
depending on the brand of stereo system there is a setting were you can change it from cd, to radio and AUX. SET IT TO AUX
do you have a stereo head phone jack on your stereo system, if you do a much better solution is getting a double sided audio cable and plugging the zune directly into the head phone jack to your stereo system it costs maybe $10 for a good gold plated phillips

what i mean just incase you didnt understand is you need a double sided plug for the headphone jack, this plugs into most stereo systems

AUX input won't work


The red and white RCA terminals on the back of the unit are generally outputs for amplifiers. To use AUX the unit will need to have a 3.5mm jack in the front or rear. If not than the unit does not have AUX input capabilities.

Aux location


There is a RCA cable that comes off the back of the radio and also another cable for 3.5mm (mini-stereo jack) that also comes off the back of the radio. The RCA jacks can be used for "AUX" or "Sub-woofer" and the 3.5mm jack is just for "AUX". Your ipod can use the audio output jack or the headphone jack and plug that into the 3.5 mm jack on the back of the radio. You will need a "3.5mm male" to "3.5mm male" stereo cord that can be purchased at Radio Shack or Best Buy. Then you select "AUX" on the display with the source button to listen to it. You may need to go into the menu and activate the "AUX" input. Check your owners manual for details.

Can I plug my MP3 player into the aux. socket on my car radio, with the appropriate cable and play the stored music?


You should be able to do that as long as you have the right cable.

Most of the mp3 players have a "mini-stereo" jack (3.5mm) and some car stereos have the same type of jack for "aux" input, and others car stereos have RCA jacks for the "aux" input.

Even if the jacks are not the same type, you can use an adapter cable that converts the mini-stereo jack to an RCA jack. You can find them at many places like Best Buy, Circuit City or Radio Shack.

Depending on the type of car stereo you have, you would normally press the source button to change between the tuner, cd player, aux or whatever you may have connected to the stereo. You may even have a seperate button to press for the "aux" input.

I hope this was helpful to you, if you need more information just ask, and please give more info on the type of mp3 player and the make and model number of the car stereo.
