The Alpine CDE-103BT requires only USB media that is FAT12/16/32. You can format your USB medium on your PC to FAT32 then copy your media (music) to the the USB drive.
Insert your USB Drive to the PC On your PC navigate to Start ->MY Computer Then locate your the drive that is your USB Drive. At this time you will want to save any of your data before continuing. All Data on the USB drive will be lost. Next ensure that you have selected the correct drive. Right Click on the drive on go to format... Under File System select FAT32. I would suggest leaving Quick Format unchecked. So you ensure that will information is removed. Then Click start. Next copy your media (music) back to the USB Drive. Insert in to the CDE-103BT Stereo.
Notes: MP3/WMA/AAC files are prepared, then stored to a USB memory. This unit can recognize at least 100 folders (including root folder) and 100 files per folder stored in USB memory. Do not make a file's playback time more than 1 hour.

    Hi,

    I have an Alpine CDE-103BT. I'm using an USB key (LaCie EXtreme, 64GB) to listen to music through the head unit's USB port.
    For some reason which I ignore, it gives me "unsupported" errors to every other tune in any given folder, either pair or impair numbered songs.
    I have reformatted the drive, originally formatted for Mac OS, to MS-DOS FAT. I still get the same errors for every other song in the albums.
    Any ideas? Thanks for any help.

You have to format the drive to the correct type before transferring your music onto it. Not sure whether you're using windows or Mac. In windows go into file explorer, right click the usb drive and select format. This will show you a section of formats including FAT32.

When i put music on my pen drive it plays on my pc but not on my car stereo why ?


Chances are the music files are not in a format that your car stereo recognizes. Check the booklet that came with the stereo and look for acceptable file formats. (Something that says .mp3 or . something.). If it still doesn't work, the pen drive itself may need to be formatted for the car stereo to be able to recognize it. (Maybe FAT32 instead of NTSF). The information should be either in the book or on the manufacturers webiste.

Good luck!

Sorry but you wont be able to put a file larger than 4gb due to file format limitation since you used fat32. only NTFS supports files larger than 4gb. if you want to use it with large files you need to format again using NTFS. hope that helps!

HI, I understand what is your issue. The problem i see is after the upgrade, all .pdf files got corrupted. What I could advise you to do is to revise all the modules you created to a newer version of .pdf. then reformat all the memory stick and convert it to NTFS files. Yes, Windows 7 can still recognize the FAT / Fat32 versions but there isolated cases of file corruption associated with WIndows 7. Hope this helps your concern.

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

Pioneer AVH-P5000DVD stereo USB Error 23


I had the same problem with my Pioneer AVH-P4000DVD. Just got my 16GB sandisk micro cuzer in the mail from Radio Shack. Here is what I did to solve it:
  1. Copied all the files that came with the Sandisk device to another location (in case I need them again)
  2. Copied all the music I had put on the Sandisk since I got it to another location
  3. Using a Windows PC, I right clicked on the drive in Windows Explorer and selected "format"
  4. I re-formatted the cruzer mini to FAT 32, default size (yes, I know it was FAT 32 already)
  5. Copied the music back to the cruzer mini
  6. Plugged it into my radio and it works GREAT! instant access to any track
Before you do this: Reformatting the drive also gets rid of the software that makes the cruzer mini copy files super fast. It will take a lot longer to copy music to the drive. For me this is no big deal as the only reason I bought the drive was to put a bunch of music on it and then leave it in my truck.

Make sure the USB device is formatted to FAT32.
I use both a 1GB Creative Zen nano and a 120GB Freecom mobile drive XXS with no problems other than the fact that the freecom has WAY more folders thatthe head unit can read!
