Question about Terk XMDPIO100

3 Answers

USB/MTP device My new car stereo takes a USB thumb drive and plays back my existing mp3's fine. When I purchase a song through the music distributing websites however the stereo tells me that song is not supported. The manual says I can play back these songs with Digital Right Management (WMA-DRM10) if I have an MTP device with "USB digital media streaming". My question is: Are there thumb drives or portable hard drives that act like MTP devices or do I have to buy another player of some kind to load my songs and then plug into my car stereo? Thanks, Bill

    I have a Clarion DUZ385SAT with the usb input. I have tried a Sansa express mp3 player and it did not work with the stereo. It gave an error code of error 2. I then purchased an i pod shuffle and tried it and had the same results. Is there only certain portable devices that will connect correctly with this stereo and how can i find out which ones will work

The real issue here is Digital Rights Management (DRM). 
Most purchased MP3/WMA/AAC songs are protected by a DRM license.
The only players that can play it are those 1) capable of handling the type of DRM and 2) registered with the correct DRM license.
That's why I only buy music through Amazon.com, because the music is not DRM protected, and you can just copy it to your USB thumb drive or any player you own. I do this all the time with a Pioneer car receiver that has USB capability. Works fine.

MTP stands for "Media Transfer Protocol", which is used by some brands of portable mp3 player. The main drawback to the MTP standard is that it is mutually exclusive with Mass Storage, which is the standard external hard drives and thumb drives utilize.

I have never heard of digital media streaming being applied to USB, just networking setups.

Make sure that the music files are indeed mp3 format. An iPod will play several different formats but most av head units only play mp3. A lot of the songs that are downloaded from iTunes are actually mp4

#1
Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
#2
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
#3
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
#4
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
#5
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
#6
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

1. First, check your device setting up on MTP or MSC? Turn on device, go to "settings" , press down or up to find "USB Mode", you can see the check mark at MTP (auto detect) or MSC mode. Change to another usb mode.
2. You have 2 ways to delete songs:
2.1. Delete songs by device: play songs, press down (sub menu) until you meet "delete song", select it and yes
If you delete all items in device: Settings, Format, and yes
2.2. Delete songs by computer: plug device to computer, double click on device icon, Music folder, and delete songs you want. If you don't see songs in there, unplug the device from pc, and then change USB mode, and plug device to pc to delete.
Good luck

Delete songs from mp3


1) Go to Settings/USB Mode and change to MSC mode which make it works as a flash drive/memory stick 2) In Windows explorer, you should see two drives in My Computer, one for the unit, one for the card slo 3) As for a 'normal' PC, you can now just delete any files/songs from your Sansa directories in either drives! (you can also move existing or add new files). note: if your normally use SanDisk Media Converter program or Windows Media Player, you must change the USB mode setting on your Sansa back to 'MTP' before those programs can see your device.

Computer does not show MP3 player as connected and how to stop a song playing


If you installed the firmware update, you might have forgotten to change the device to MSC mode.. try going to settings>USB mode>MSC This should probably work.. to stop a song while its playing, click the |<< button while you have the screen with the current song. (you can pause a song on this same screen with the >|| button) If you have gone back to any of the menu screens, wait for a couple seconds and the player will automatically go back tot he song display screen so you can stop the song.
