Re: KDC-X591

Kenwoods are awesome. Read the manual, sometimes it gets confused with the Folder trees, if you have to many it goes crazy. It could also be the way the disk is burned, and how the songs are named. I beleive in display options too you can click how things are displayed i.e. folder, artist, song name, title, time. Read your manual.

WOn't let me go above song number 255

That is apparently the limitation of the device. You should make folders for each artist anyway and sort the songs accordingly.

Clarion DB365USB head unit won't play songs from 8GB flashdrive

The reading of flash drives and MP3 discs vary from each manufacturer. Usually, ten folders with music in each folder will work on most. To the best of my knowledge, Clarion reads well. When all else fails, you can always just drag and drop all the MP3's without folders. I know it's not as easy "finding" songs that are in folders but seems like you can't do that anyway.

I know this is lame, but the manual ALWAYS describes HOW to make the disc (folder trees etc.)

USB folder names-Kenwood KDC-X591

Push the AME button in the upper right hand corner of the unit and at the same time hold the fast forward button on the face of the unit - do this for 5 secs. The word "Code" should pop up (not blinking).

Using your remote control press the following numbers:
5 (two times for letter "K")
2 (three times for letter "C")
2 (one time for letter "A")
7 ((two times for letter "R")

Then using your remote control, press the fast forward button and you are done. "Approved" should pop up on the unit.

Hope this helps!

Ok I had the kenwood KDC-MP235 installed and...

The front aux input is only capable of accepting audio signals and definitely won't display any track tags.

If you have an iPod, I think with the KCA-iP500 adapter it will display song info on the front as well as allow control from the Kenwood's controls.

As far as the song info on a CD - it should display if you've got a CD with CDTEXT info on it, or if you're playing an MP3/WMA CD. Most regular audio CDs won't be able to display song info.

225 mr will not play burn MP3's

I have the manual and copied it verbatim for you. Please let me know if you need me to scan the manual for you. Acceptable medium formats: The following formats are available for the media used in this unit. The maximum number of characters used for file name including the delimiter (".") and three-character extension are indicated in parentheses. ? ISO 9660 Level 1 (12 characters) ? ISO 9660 Level 2 (31 characters) ? Joliet (64 character; Up to 32 characters are displayed) ? Romeo (128 character; Up to 64 characters are displayed) ? Long file name (200 characters; Up to 64 characters are displayed) ? Maximum number of characters for folder name: 64 (Joliet; Up to 32 characters are displayed) For a list of available characters, see the instruction manual of the writing software and the section Entering file and folder names below. The media reproducible on this unit has the following limitations: ? Maximum number of directory levels: 8 ? Maximum number of files per folder: 255 ? Maximum number of folders: 50 MP3/WMA written in the formats other than the above may not be successfully played and their file names or folder names are not properly displayed. Settings for your MP3/WMA encoder and CD writer Do the following setting when compressing audio data in MP3/WMA data with the MP3/WMA encoder. ? Transfer bit rate MP3: 8 ?320 kbps WMA: 48 ?192 kbps ? Sampling frequency MP3: 8, 11.025, 12, 16, 22.05, 24, 32, 44.1, 48 kHz WMA: 32, 44.1, 48 kHz When you use your CD writer to record MP3/WMA up to the maximum disc capacity, disable additional writing. For recording on an empty disc up to the maximum capacity at once, check Disc at Once. Play mode may not be possible when portions of the functions of Windows Media Player 9 or higher are used. Entering ID3 tag: The Displayable ID3 tag is ID3 version 1.x. For the character code, refer to the List of Codes. Entering file and folder names: The code list characters are the only file names and folder names that can be entered and displayed. If you use any other character for entry, the file and folder names are not displayed correctly. They may neither be displayed correctly depending on the CD writer used. The unit recognizes and plays only those MP3/WMA which have the MP3/WMA extension (.MP3/.WMA). A file with a name entered with characters not on the code list may not play correctly. Writing files into a medium: When a medium containing MP3/WMA data is loaded, the unit checks all the data on the medium. If the medium contains a lot of folders or non-MP3/WMA files, therefore, it takes a long time until the unit starts playing MP3/WMA. In addition, it may take time for the unit to move to the next MP3/WMA file or a File Search or Folder Search may not be performed smoothly. Loading such a medium may produce loud noise to damage the speakers. ? Do no attempt to play a medium containing a non-MP3/WMA file with the MP3/WMA extension. The unit mistakes non-MP3/WMA files for MP3/WMA data as long as they have the MP3/WMA extension. ? Do not attempt to play a medium containing non MP3/WMA.
