Using ipod video playlists with Kenwood DNX 7100

In my Ipod I have a music video playlist that I can't seem to access on my Kenwood DNX 7100. I do see it when I press the music button and then playlists, but all that will do is play the music without the video. Only when I press the video button can I watch my videos but can't access my playlist. So I have to watch the videos in the order they are in the library. Kenwood support has techs that don't know what they are talking about because I already figured out things they said were not possible. I called them regarding this issue and they told me to install the new update (vers. 1.0.9) and that still didn't do anything. Anyone have any ideas of what I can do to play my video playlists?

Re: Using ipod video playlists with Kenwood DNX 7100

I had the same problem for a while until I found I way to trick the ipod …what you have to is categorize your videos (R&B, HIPHOP, POP etc). This may take a little time depending on the amount of videos you have…Go to your itunes library right click on each video …then click on the get Info Tab ….the click on Info…what you have to do is change the Artist line to whatever category you want that video to be for example I have a Janet Jackson video and the title is “Excited” what I do is this……on the NAME line I would have ….
Excited – Janet Jackson and on the artist line I would put “pop” …it’s kinda hard to explain in writing if you don’t understand you can always give me a call and I will explain better…917-797-0764

The unit is showing that is reading my iPod but, I'm not getting any sound from it. Everything else is playing fine...tuner, Sirius, DVD,etc...I'm getting sound from everything but my iPod.

I have the same problem... Just installed my DNX yesterday. I called Kenwood and they said I needed to purchase the KCA-iP301v. BUT when I went to the Kenwood website, there a "iProducts" compatiablilty site that will tell you if your generation iProduct will work. I can tell you now, (according to the site,) the iPhone 4 isn't campatiable.

Kenwood dnx 7100 shuts off sporadically

If it is shutting off and coming right back on I would defintley take another look at your ground connection. This is the most likley cause for the sudden turn offs. Especially if it comes right back on.

Factory controls interface?

Call these guys at and purchase the SWC module that matches your vehicle (ask for Scroche brand). Once you purchase the SWC module, make sure you read the installation instructions two or three times before you install it. Once installed, these SWC units work great. I just completed the installation on my 2008 F150 with the Kenwood DNX-7100 and my steering wheel interface works perfectly.

Usb drive

Another solution here....I have a Kenwood KDC-x991 deck.

Have USB Read error problems..
Anyway I had a 30gb hdd, replaced it with a 100gb (according to manual, will use up to 120gb w/out external power...)
Anyways long story short, the 100gb drive worked fine for....20-25 mins...
I was happy. Now here's the clincher. After 20-25 mins, it gave the USB read error. (instead of resetting the deck and have to make the date/time/eq/sound/setting changes I unplugged the USB drive...changed source from USB to tuner (or anything else for that matter). Then switched back to USB w/ no device installed and after 2 seconds or less, the USB Error disappeard and said no USB device connected....Anyway thats the best way (I've found) to get around the Resetting the deck. Anyway after that from then on I could not get the Hard drive to work for more than 30 seconds. It would play then give me the read error.

Tried a different drive...80gb same prob...went back to the 30, and it was fine.
Tried a 160 (I knew it wasn't going to work) and it didn't either.
Anyway was thinking what to do.....most of the USB external drives I had came with a power port on it aside from the USB port plug. Or the drives came with the Y Cable....
The long part plugs into the Kenwood deck, and then the END of that cable plugs into your USB external drive, and the small piece connects to a (get we gooooo FTW) USB to Cigarette adapter!!!!!
And this worked like a charm on ALL my drives. Stable...and just plain worked great!
Anyway I hope that this will help you guys w/ your usb probs!

In order to access the DNX7100's bulit in SD card slot, you have to press the CD/DVD eject button for about 5 secs. It will fold down to reveal the SD slot. This slot is only used for Software and Map updates via a SD Card.
