The USB function on my JVC KD-AR880 won't engage. It "File Search" forever. I'm using an 8gig USB Flash Drive (Corsair), and it has approx. 2.3gigs of music on it. All file types are suported (MP3,WMA) and Folders are no more than one deep from root. Any ideas?

How long have you left it in the head unit while it says "File Check"? With 2.3GB, it may take a while to finish it's check.

Have you tried doing a disc scan of the flash drive with your computer? If there are file system issues on the drive, that could make the head unit unhappy.

According to the manual, file names can have up to 25 characters, but ID tags can be up to 128. It doesn't say what happens if you go beyond those limits. Check your folder/file name lengths.

If you're using a USB extension cord, try it without.

Kd-r400 can't recognize usb


You might have to reset the logic by disconnecting the power to the unit. Remove the fuse temporarily, or both fuses if it has 2.

I recently got a trojan horse on a pc whilst my Gogear was plugged into the pc charging. After i wiped the virus off my pc i noticed my mp3 would'nt play the mp3 files n flashed a red light instead of the...


a couplle of options is to see if your PC Antivirus has an option to detect trojans etc on your USB devices. Gogear are basically usb storage devices that act as music players. you have a trojan that has changed settings in you computer. ZFirst set of steps is to eliminate the trojan from your gogear ( after re cleaning your PC). So try these steps. or you can try and reformat the gogear as well.

Instructions
    • 1 Press the "Shift" key as you insert the USB drive into your computer. Holding down "Shift" will keep the computer from auto-playing the device. Click "Cancel" to exit the auto-run if you do not hold "Shift" down long enough and the auto-play function starts.
    • 2 Open the Windows Command Prompt by clicking "Start" and then highlighting and clicking "Run." Type "cmd" (without the quotes) in the text box, and press "Enter." If you use Windows Vista, click the Windows icon, then type "cmd" in the "Search" box and hit "Enter."
    • 3 Switch the Command Prompt to your USB flash drive by typing the letter of the drive followed by a colon--for example, "F:" without the quotes--and pressing "Enter." You can locate the letter that Windows assigns to your flash drive by clicking "Start," then highlighting and clicking "My Computer."
    • 4 List the directory of files on your flash drive by typing "dir/w/o/a/p" (no quotes) into the Command Prompt and pressing "Enter." This line will tell your USB drive to compile and display a list of all files.
    • 5 Locate common viruses, Trojan horses, or malicious files in the list. Two of the most commonly reported pieces of USB malware will appear as "Autorun.inf" or "smss.exe" (both without the quotes). Unless you are using your USB to transfer a program from one computer to another, you should be suspicious of any executable file--file types ending ".exe"--that appears in your flash drive's directory. Also, as a general rule of thumb, if you see any files on your USB drive other than ones you have personally stored on it, your flash drive is infected.
    • 6 Set your USB drive to show all files so that you can delete them. Copy and paste "attrib -r -a -s -h *.*" (without the quotes) into the command prompt and press "Enter." These letters stand for "Read Only, Archive, System and Hidden File," and entering this line will tell your USB file to recognize them.
    • 7 Delete any viruses, Trojan horses, malware and suspicious files. Type "del" (no quotes) followed by a space and then the name of the file; for instance, "del smss.exe". Press "Enter" to delete that file from your USB flash drive.

JVC KD-AVX 40 compatiable USB H/Drive


You can use any non powered USB drive (gains its power from usb only). You just have to plug it into your PC and select Properties > Format then make sure you format it in FAT12, 16 or most commonly (recommended) FAT32 file system.

Once you've done this you can transfer all your music onto it then plug it into the USB port lead from the back of the head unit

Lost my USB function on my car radio


Good morning (jhb 8:20 am)

I thank you for the quick response regarding my JVC KD-DV7401 not picking up the USB 'source' I managed by using a different brand and it worked, although it seems like it don't work with different types of music folders/formats so I need to figure that one I'll be more than happy.

How do I remove my JVC KD-AR880?


if you still have all the hardware that came with it your should have 2 L shapped peices of metal, all you have to do is pop off the plastic ring around the deck and you should be able to see slots on either side of the deck, all you have to do is slide the metal dealys in the slots and then you should be able to slide the deck right out.

Kingston 8Gig mem stick


the FAT32 file system has a limit of 4GB per file. This is normal the file system that flash drives come with. You could format the drive with the NTFS file system to get around this restriction.
