Unable to connect USB hard drive to KD-AVX33

I'm unable to connect the KD-AVX33 to a USB hard drive. The drive is self-powered through USB with a second cable you can connect to another USB port for additional power. I tried connecting the power USB cable into a laptop and the Data USB into the JVC USB port and it still won't connect. I've tried 3 other brands of USB HD's As well...same problem

Re: Unable to connect USB hard drive to KD-AVX33

I have a Lacy 160G laptop external HDD attached to it..It works fine... The format of the HDD should also be FAT32. The structure of the files should be Album/MP3

For a HDD that big look for software on the internet which can convert it from NTSF to FAT32 it should work perfectly.

The only thing I haven't been able to get working is videofiles...on the same HDD. Anyone got an idea?

Re: Unable to connect USB hard drive to KD-AVX33

I bought this model also. It depends how much power the external drive uses. The models with 2 usb cables usually don't work because they require more power.

The hdd cannot be bigger than around 20GB, not more then 12 folders and no more then 2500 files. I saw at some forums.

If you have a pen drive at 8 to 12 GB i don't think you have problems with these. anything bigger and you have to be lucky.

Maybe at my company i can try some drives as we have them to test/use.

I have found that you need separate HD for video and music. I load all my songs on a 40 gb HD and all my video on a 16 GB thumb drive.

Connecting an External Portable Hard Drive?

You are connecting it to a car DVD player, but how many types of music format is it capable of playing? It should be in the Manual, however it will be able to play mp3. *.flac, *.wmv, *.wav, *.cda. But how ere you going to power your external hard disk? If it has provision for use of 12V DC voltage, same as that of the car. After its powered, only then will it work, but the USB connector will provide the output into the DVD players USB slot(just like attaching a flas drive like pen drive which uses the USB slot for power too....sodeep

Do you know anything

In the JVC KD-AVX33 manual, page 31 they wrote: "You cannot connect a computer to the USB terminal of the unit." So, how you would connect the computer to the unit ?!?

No sound when making a phone call

Try to delete paired phone and to make the connection again.
Once my phone was connected (showed on the screen), but no sound !?! :( and I couldn't access the phone (address book, call list...)
I deleted it from the unit ("SRC">"Bluetooth Phone">"AV Menu">"ENT">"Delete Pair">"Yes") and make the connection again and everything was OK.

HDD with videofiles not working

I had the same problem on memory stick. If I have pictures only on memory stick it is working (pictures played in a slide show). After that I've try with a mixed CD (MP3 + pictures) and was the same problem - only MP3 played. I think KD AVX33 doesn't know to read both type of files at the same time.
