Follow this link. You can download the firmware from the numark site as well as on the upper left next to the video click the step by step video that tells you how to update the firmware. You will need a usb thumb drive and make sure that the firmware file you unzip is the ONLY file on the thumb drive:

    Have you tried updating the firmware? How long have you owned the unit? Have you tried a different Ipod yet? First I would isolate whether the problem is with the mixer or your ipod. If it's the mixer and the firmware doesn't fix the problem then most likely it will need to be repaired by a professional.
    Thank you,

I have an ipod touch 2nd gen and it wont recoginize anything when docked with my IDJ2? Confused??? I put a flash drive in a USB port they all come right up!!


connect the ipod to PC..... first make sure you have the latest Itunes (http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/) 10.2.2 now plug ipod to PC..... Itunes should pop up automatic... now check to see if your ipod has the latest firmware for its generation (ipod touch 2gen) if not update it, this should also help the docking problems...now (always always eject your ipod, do not ever ever just unplug the ipod)
have fun feel free to comment on the help

I just got an idj2. I downloaded the firmware. I went through the library process, though I'm not sure what that really did other than take a ton of time. I hooked my ipod touch (16 gig) to the idj2 and it...


Dan... I hate to be the bearer of bad news...
Located at http://www.numark.com/idj2 there is a link called iPod compatibility matrix v1.6 this link tells you which versions of the iPod work great with the idj2 and which versions of the iPod make you want to pick up your idj2 and smash it against a brick wall. Sadly, the iPod Touch falls into the "smash" catagory.

Generation 1 iPod Touch devices can only be used in "DIRECT MODE ONLY" which means you can use them like a cd player or as a music source on 1 channel of the mixer of the idj2.

Both Generation 1 and Generation 2 iPod Touch devices are not supported to be used with the idj2 in "MASS STORAGE MODE".

How to download firmware and librarian files to my idj2


The current firmware available is version v1.13 which is located at http://www.numark.com/idj2 . It also has Librarian v1.5 included with it.

Download the firmware to your PC and then unzip it to your desktop where you can retrieve it easily.

Transfer the firmware file to the handy little 128mb thumb drive that came with the idj2. (I moved all of the files from the thumb drive on to my PC so the firmware file was the only file on my thumb drive to avoid any computer related confusion)

Making sure your idj2 is powered "OFF" insert the thumb drive containing firmware v1.13 into one of the rear USB ports. Make sure this is the only thing plugged into the idj2 at this time(no keyboard, ect)

Turn on the idj2 on. You will see a message that says the machine is checking the firmware.(I don't have the system in front of me right now but that is roughly what it says) It will take a few minutes and the system will update to the new firmware.

My Numark iDJ2 won't update it's firmware!


I've tried it with a PC, I've tried it with a Mac, I've tried it with two different memory drives, and nothing will get it to update. Numark has a quality problem they need to address soon.

Uploading problem


Some things you have to do yourself... It only takes some work to get it right.

For using ipods or harddrives/USB sticks with the IDj2, your best off with creating Numark libraries. This makes the IDj2 quicker when searching/loading tracks.

This can be done on your Mac or PC with
librarian 1.50/IDJ2 1.09(a)firmware combination. If you havent updated your IDJ2 yet, do so. It's the most recent verion, and fixes most problems...
Files can be found on www.numark.com/idj2. Look around in this page. There is also explained how to update with a FAT formatted USB stick.

If you have created a library before, Itunes won't update this library, cause it's made by Numark. Itunes and Numark use both a different database.
If you run Librarian, it will still see the Ipod playlists, and add them accordingly in your Numark database, and can be recalled in the IDJ2.
If you have created libraries with Librarian 1.33 or on the IDJ2 with firmware before 1.09. You have to remove the whole libary, and recreate one with Librarian 1.50.
Mostly there is a directory on the device called " .library ". You can throw this away, and recreate a new library.

Good luck and happy DJ-ing.

regards,
Jack.

When docking it takes too long transfering data from ipod to idj2


Hi,
if you have a PC, you're better of preparing a library for your USB/IPOD devices with Librarian 1.50, but only if you are running 1.09(a) firmware on the IDJ2. This is the preferred and quicker way...
Do an upgrade if this is not done yet. Go to
http://www.numark.com/contentmgr/showdetails.php/id/1230/tt/5
for downloading the files.

When rerunning the librarian(for instance when adding tracks), choose normal mode. It will add every playable track. (you could try this out on an USB stick with some tracks on it for testing purposes).
If this doesn't work, you could have a corrupt library, and have to rebuild(choose advanced in Librarian). Also, when you have created with earlier versions of IDJ2 firmware, then you have to rebuild the whole library.

Numark stated on their forums, when connecting a device, to never choose update, but load instead. It can use mp3/wav/non secured aac files, but not wma..
If there are any other questions, you can also send an e-mail to numark. They are reasonably quick with their responses.

regards

Jack
