If you are using nero they have a "burn mp3" button you can click and choose your songs from there.

Also there are times that readers dont like certain media. Some disks are manufactured much cheaper than others and the quality isn't good enough for your unit to read it. Try some different media brands and see if that helps.

I dont understand how to play mp3 player on my kenwood cd player.I have the cord to hook it up to my kenwood radio but i dont know how to get the mp3 to play.


Just plug the cord into the front of the cd player where it says "AUX" and then plug the other end of the cord into the headphone / line out jack on any ipod or mp3 player then select "AUX" instead of CD and the sound will come through the system

I have a clarion cy358 car audio system. it has CD am/FM. I wanna know whether what format is compatible with this CD player? Can I play mp3? it doesnt show any mp3 icon on the interface.


it only need to indicate WMA or MP3 when its playing in that format. depending on how old the head unit is... most head units sold after the new ISO-9001 Standards need to display any and all specs http://www.iso.org/iso/about/the_iso_story.htm try burning a data copy first to see if the head unit can search through the folders... if it wont search or do anything at all... its .wave (cd) if the display reads unsupported format and continues to search....it does play mp3/wma to get the mp3/wma files to play, change the settings in the burner program. (try default settings) ..... it takes time to render a nice mp3 disc from scratch, one its working, its really rewarding... 18-20 songs just isnt enough anymore.... try to use 320kbps mp3's as much as you can... anything lower will make ant car stereo sound like a 10 dollar alarm clock... keep the bit-rate high when it comes to music... your ears will last longer too...

How do I play my Zune hd through my car speakers, my head unit is a Kenwood excelon KDC-X692


If your Kenwood has an AUX input then you can connect a audio cable from the headphone connector on the Zune to the the AUX input on the Kenwood. Power up the Zune ans set it to music and switch the Kenwood to AUX.

How i can attach mp3 or memory card with my kenwood player


Hi.

If the Kenwood is compatible with USB memory adapter, then you will have an USB port on the front side of the player, just aside the CD slot.

If the stereo is MP3 compatible, that does not mean that the unit is compatible with USB devices.
If the Kenwood is MP3 but not USB compatible, you can play MP3 files burning them onto a CD, then playing the MP3 CD in the CD player.

Regards.

Kenwood head unit CD and AUX sound not working


I fixed the sound problem with tech support from Kenwood. I had the blue wire from the Kenwood which is the antennae turn on wired to the amp turn on for the vehicle (2001 Blazer with Bose factory stereo). This is how I was told to wire it from the installation tech where I purchased the wiring harness. The tuning played fine because the Bose amp turned on when I played the tuner but when I played the cd or aux the amp turned off, thus no sound. The kenwood tech toldd me to wire the blue/white wire to the amp turn on for the vehicle so the amp would be on when ever power to the Kenwood was on. I rewired this way and everything works great now.

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.
