Alpine IDA-x100 and KCE-300BT

I have got these 2 units connected but the bluetooth unit is not being recognised by the head unit, the instructions says to turn off the INT MUTE on the head unit in order for it to work, but in the setup menu the INT MUTE is not accessible. could this be the reason why the head unit is not seeing the KCE-300BT. They did work together when the connections on the KCE-300BT was earthed for a small period, after that nothing. What do i need to do next.
The KCE-300BT is working as it connects upto my blackberry.

    I also have the same problem it is the new ida x100 head unit and the kce 300bt bluetooth adaptor. Again my phone recognises the adaptor but the bluetooth menu on the head unit will only allow me to select bluetooth 'off' or 'adaptor' the functions below it such as 'pairing' and 'visibility' I cannot scroll too. Really frustrating! Could you please let me know if the below solution worked. Or if anyone can help with this problem. Thanks in advance.

Hi
what you need to do is to start off make sure both units are powered from the same point you will see why below. Make sure you connect the Audio Interrupt out lead (pink/black) from the 300bt to the x001 INT IN pink/black wire
Go to general settings turn off the int mute setting, (you proberly have it turned off already the reason your not seeing it) try resetting it using the small button behind the face plate. This should allow you to see the int mute setting. Go to the bluetooth settings and select adaptor. Disconnect power to both units. ( you will need to re apply power to both units at the same time) after around 10mins. when you re-connect the power make sure ALL bluetooth units around the car are turned off. You should now have success in pairing the phone and having the X001 recognise the 300 bt.

Are you using the KCE-422i cable included with the unit? The iPod will not work plugged into the USB port with the factory Apple cable. You need to use the silly Alpine cable.

My ida-x100 doesnt recognise my ipod when using the apple usb cable


I have a similar problem. The original Alpine USB cable fell apart on me and I began receiving an error message. "No, biggie," I thought. "I have plenty of iPod USB cables." But I get an error message with each one, as well as an error message with every iPod I've tried. Apparently the IDA-X100 will only read iPods if you use an original Alpine USB cable.

My alpine ida-x100 can read flash drives but not a portable hard drive. why? can I make it work?


The hard drive must be formatted in FAT 16 or 32 for the Alpine to recognise its there. It came pre-formatted in NTFS.This is an easy fix once you know the problem. Just save your data/music onto another drive.Then use a program like easeus partition master (free download) to reformat the external drive in FAT32. Move your music/data back onto the drive and the Alpine will now see the drive and all your music. As a matter of interest some people say you cant format a drive bigger than 32Gb in FAT32, but I had no problem with the above method on a seagate 500Gb drive. Also apparently some head units cant deliver enough power to spin up an external usb powered drive, but again I had no problems with the above combination

Usb device error


The cord might likely the problem. The iDA-X100 will only recognize iPods if you use an original Alpine USB cord. Using any other cable won't work. I had this problem when my Alpine cable fell apart and stopped working. I thought any other cable would work, but that's not the case.

Hooking up alpine hd radio unit, bt-400, which one do i hook ipod to


Niether .... do you know what you have in hand? Both those extras costed someone some cash ... OK here it is: the CDA-9884 has a dedicated input for ipod (a KCE-422i cable is needed and comes with the new CDA-9884 in the box) ... The HD radio unit allows you to recieve new HD radio signals (digital radio, and stations that have it in your area may also have extra music streams like HD TV does). The bt-400 is a bluetooth adapter to use bluetooth enabled devices with such as a cell phone. If your ipod has bluetooth you could used the bt adapter but I suggest the KCE-422i cable instead, and check out the HD radio too, it's pretty cool.

Aipine ida x 100,usb device error


Are you using the original Alpine iPod USB cable? If not, that could be the problem. The iDA-X100 will only read iPods using the Alpine cable. Otherwise, you get a "USB Device Error."
