Question about Kenwood DNX7100 Car Video Player

Won't read an SD card

Trying to put in a new update for my DNX7100 but when you put the SD card in nothing happens. Waited about 5 minutes and tried turning it off and reseting it with no such luck. Only trying to update it because the GPS keeps telling my it's locating satellites. Drove 2100 miles with out a GPS. Anyone know why it's not reading. I even tried 3 different SD cards. Thanks.

    See I checked the plug and it's connected. When I was looking on where to mount the antenna I called Kenwood and ask if mounting it on the dash up close to the window would work. They said as if nothing is blocking it, it should be fine. Now the more I think about it I might try mounting it to the outside of the vehicle. As with the SD card, I went out and bought a new one. Made sure nothing was on it before putting the update on. Kenwood told me not to use Vista. So I tried Windows XP and my parents old computer that has Windows ME on it. I even used a 128 MB SD card and nothing would work.

It sounds like either your GPS plug came out of the back of the unit, or your gps does not have a clear view of the sky, or if the gps is mounted on a trunk that opens and closes a lot the wire can break inside. I dont think the software is your issue, just to make sure if you update make sure the update file is the only file on the card, if there are other files (left over pictures, etc) they can cause the unit to disreguard the whole card.

My wife's unit has the same issue - tried the firmware update (from Sony's website) and their suggested fix with no luck. Still works as a digital picture frame, but wrong date and stuck time kind of disappoint.

FYI - Suggested fix for stuck date/time:

Unplug unit.
Remove backup battery.
Leave for 30 seconds.
Plug back in and then put battery back.
Set date and time.

Didn't work for me, but maybe you'll have better luck.

If the 8Gb SD card works on your HD camera, then the problem is with your built in memory card of your computer. Most of the built in memory cards of the computer only supports up to 2Gb.
You can actually isolate it by trying to test an SD card lower than 8Gb to your computer.
Solution for this is to use external USB SD reader that supports high capacity SD card (SDHC) or contact the manufacturer of your computer and ask for firmware updates for the memory card reader. Hope this is clear and would help you.

Camera reads communication error when trying to upload photos what might be the prob


I BELIEVE THE REASON IS THE TYPE OF SD CARD.
THERE ARE SD AND SDHC. IF YOU ARE USING SDHC.
I BET THE ONE CARD THAT DOESNT READ IS AN HC. THIS IS ALSO TRUE WITH OLDER CARD READERS. I HAVE AN OLDER AND NEWER CARD READER.
I JUST HAPPENED TO PUT AN OLDER SD CARD IN MY NEW POWERSHOT SD1300 AND IT READS FINE, ALL NEW CARDS SDHC WONT READ.
I BELIEVE SD IS UP TO 2GIGS AND SDHC IS 4GIGS AND HIGHER.

SD Card Reader won't work?


have you tried other sd cards before or is this the first time?

if you have and its just this time it hasent make sure its working in your camera or mp3 player or where ever it came from :-)
if it works have a look in your device manager to make sure there are no problems with the drivers.

1 start
2 control pannel
3 system
4 then the hardware tab and click the device manager.

if there are anyproblems there is useually a little symbol next to the device just double click on it and have a look for the error code.

if all else fails try reinstaling the driver for your card reader or find an updated drivr download.

hope this helps

It only goes down half way. You have to gently push it down the rest of the way to expose the SD card slot.
