ANSWER: The USB is not going to work with your iPod. It is intended to be used with a flash drive or external hard drive with a folder structure containing either .mp3 or .wma files.
REASON: The way the USB works on the system is that it reads all the files and folders on the entire device and will say "reading" until it reads all the files and folders. This should only take a few seconds but if there is tons of files it may take longer. Main problem: An iPod contains much more than just music files and folders - it contains an entire operating system. Worse, the operating system which the iPod uses is protected, keeping other devices except for iTunes from reading the music files.
SOLUTION: You will need to use a flash drive or external hard drive with your USB. This device can only contain music, and the music must be organized into folders. Your iPod will not work. However, you can use Auxiliary input using a cable which both ends are 1/4" headphone jacks, one end going to the iPod and other plugged into your stereo.
Good Luck! - Chris Proia

Why does screen say no media device when I have iPad connected to usb port of ELEFT326 TV


USB on that TV is for a USB flash.
Page 11 in the manual says:
Insert the USB flash drive into the USB port, select USB channel source via the SOURCE button.
It doesn't say what it will read off a flash drive though.

Where can I get appropriate USB cable, i.e, parallel to USB not the original parallel to parallel?


So you have an old Zip drive with a parallel port? You can't connect that using USB. Nor can you connect that to a computer running any version of Windows newer than XP.

Two options:
1) Buy a USB version of the Zip drive and use it to read your disks. Used, USB Zip drives seem to run around $35 or so.
2) Get a computer using an old version of Windows. If it doesn't have a parallel port, you should be able to buy a PCI card with a parallel port on it.

Once you're able to access the files, copy them onto a USB thumb drive. For $10, you can get a 32 GB USB drive, which should hold everything from at least 320 Zip disks.

Hi, please connect the external Hard Drive to different USB port of the Computer. If you are using the Desktop Computer then please connect the Hard Drive to back side of the USB Port. Then make sure that Hard Drive AC Adapter is connected and working. Also check if the Hard Drive is working with any other Computer.

It sounds like the motherboard is causing the usb ports to malfunction by allowing power surges into the power input to the ports.You maybe should try a powered usb hub to power your hardware or you may face motherboard replacement

My two front usb ports cant read usb hard drives


Some external USB drives require external power sources. Typically this is done either with an external power supply that connects to the drive or a second USB cable that connects to the drive and a second usb port on the pc. I have even seen one drive that comes with a Y cable. one end goes to the drive and the 2 usb plugs go to the pc.

Ipod ready/USB problem


The USB port is to be used with USB mass storage devices like flash drives, thumbdrive or external hard drives. The IPod's USB connection is not seen as a mass storage device it is proprietary. You need the iPod connection kit, part number KS-PD100 to connect your iPod to the deck.

Quite strange.. I would suggest that maybe one of the usb ports is faulty.. Or ofcourse, one of the cables.. Or the usb port has been mis-wired inside the pc. That has been done before. Anyway, do you have access to 2 usb drives.. I mean micro/thumb drives? I'd test each port by itself first, to see if they operate correctly, then if they do, use the two usb drives in the two usb ports at the same time, to test read & write.. I guess there are other things you could try, like going to control panel, system, hardware, device manager & checking on the status of the usb ports. That may tell you something worthwhile. Whatever you do, test each port with the one single cable. Yer, this is a strange fault. Let me know how you go. Rgds,
