Re: Please Advise - Problems With USB Drives For American Audio CDJ
Decks - Radius 3000
Hi all, I would appreciate any advise the forum members have on this problem, better still if someone from ADJ can email me - I have already emailed this enquiry to ADJ support & await a reply.
I own a pair of American Audio "Radius 3000" CDJ Decks.
These CDJs work fine with most USB sticks - though some of the sticks
do not register / are not readable by the CDJ decks even though I can
see the MP3 Files on the stick on my PC.
I recently bought a a terabyte portable hard-drive for use with the
decks when I'm gigging so I don't have to keep changing USB sticks
during the set - but the decks will not register or read from the
hard-drive by the CDJ decks.
The hard-drive does not have it's own power supply and takes power via
the pc or deck it's connected to via the USB lead - in this case the
Radius 3000 CDJ deck.
The drive indicates that the CDJ deck is not generating enough power
to run the drive - so I suspect this may be a factor why the decks
can't read the drive.
Could someone please advise on how to overcome this problem so the CDJs
can read from the hard-drive.
Could someone either email me, post or direct me to a list of hard-drive makes /
models that you know do work with the Radius 3000 Decks.
A list of compatible USB sticks would also be useful to save me time
and expense in future when buying USB sticks and USB hard-drives for
use with the Radius 3000 Decks.
