Check with Auto Toys (http://www.autotoys.com) . They sell all sorts of adapter to connect MP3's and mini discs to car stereos.

From what I've seen in that manual and others about the "AUX on" option, it has to do with the AInet port to RCA plug converter (can't remember the part number but its listed in the manual in the section about turning that option on.

I don't think any Alpine unit in the US has the option to use that particular cable you are trying to use. I've only seen that cable in other countries Alpine sites never seen it listed in the US site.

If I am correct then just go ahead and get the cable that goes with the Ainet port, but if I was you I would just save a little more and get an older cheap iPod and use it with the Fullspeed cable, which will probably have better sound then an AUX to AInet cable with an mp3 player headphone out into it.

Ainet and full speed are 2 different ports, you need this in order to use the AUX input option on that headunit (according to the manual.)

"Setting the AUX Mode (V-Link)
You can input TV/video sound by connecting an optional Ai-NET/RCA
Interface cable (KCA-121B) or Versatile Link Terminal (KCA-410C) to
this component.
You can change the AUX name display when AUX IN is set to ON.
Press / /ENT when AUX IN is set to ON, and select AUX Name
by turning the Rotary encoder, then press / /ENT.
After that, turn the Rotary encoder to select the desired AUX name.
If the KCA-410C is connected, it is possible to select two AUX names.
• Via KCA-410C, up to 2 external devices with RCA output can be
connected. In this case, press SOURCE/ to select AUX mode and
then press BAND to select your desired device." http://www.alpine-usa.com/US-en/prod...model=KCA-121B

My HTC aria phone wont play music off my radio, when connected it says error 19?


HTC and other Android phones doesn't have the USB support for your HU. Only way to get signal from the phone to the HU is to use AUX 3mm cable from the phone to the aux port on the deck, assuming there is one. Other wise you will continue to get errors. USB is for Iphone and Ipod only!!!

Buy a rca to aux 3mm plug then you can connect to aux port.
RCA out is for the signal to the amp from the Head Unit. Mic is probably for your cell phone.
Am pretty surprise that an HU like that doesn't have USB Ipod support?

How do i get my ipod to play through my cd player


There are two ways you can use your ipod through your HU.

1. You can use the Aux port (located in the rear of your deck), which you will have to run AUX cable and connect it to the Ipod. Mind you this set up won't charge your ipod. Have to change the source to AUX for sound.

2. Through the USB cable that is included with the system connect your ipod (From the looks of things USB connection is also in the rear of the deck). Hit the Ipod button and that should be all she wrote.

How can i get my mp3 player to play threw my radio


There are two ways it can be done:

1. You can buy a FM transmitter which will air your mp3 songs through the airwaves to a certain frequency to the radio. Sound levels are often isn't as good as one would like.

2. There should be a cable that came with the HU which one can connect it directly to the mp3 player if it is an Ipod, if not there should be an aux port in the back or in front of the HU to play the mp3.

No sound through AUX out


the aux output is for an mp3 player or ipod. Does the HU have preamp outputs? The RCAs from the amp should go into them. If it doesn't you might have to get a high to low level input converter

Cannot get my mp3 player to operate on the aux input consistently


I have a 2002 Pontiac Montana and I use a 2 pronged RCA plug at one end with a yellow plug and a white plug, and the other end is one plug to use for the MP3 player. Plug your RCA plugs into the bottom 2 plugs. My RCA plugs on my cord are yellow and black the yellow one is in the middle
plug and the black in the bottom one and I use the AUX input for my MP3 player. I have a SANSA
and a Ipod and they both work fine. I hope this helps. Just a FYI so you don't think your radio is
going whacko after you do get the MP3 player to work the AUX will always come on first and you will have to push the AM/FM button on the dash or the steering wheel to get the radio or DVD back on.
And the DVD player will have to be switched on for the AUX to play the MP3 player.
Have fun...

MP3 player over my car speakers?


Try from both ports on your Insignia and make sure you've turned the volume on it all the way up. On the car stereo, make sure the source is set it auxiliary (usually AUX-IN). Also double check your cord isn't damaged and plugged in all the way on both sides.

Have you gone into the menu settings and turned on the AUX input?

If you hit the "source" button and AUX does not show up. It needs to be turned on.
