You may be interested in the user manual, it is on the Pioneer USA site...
Ok, the CD-UB100 will work with any P series head units, the level of functionally will vary though.
All of the older P series units will give basic functions and of the newly announced units only the DEH-P4900IB will give on screen display of the file and folder names, all of the other P series units will give the 'USB F001' display.
The video should be up by the end of the day, if i can figure out how to get YouTube to work.
I don’t know much about the US product range as I don’t live there, they are normally tweaks on the European range.
I'm not going to make comments as to products that have not yet been published but the PDF you guys have seen is a preview so stay tuned for the full brochure...
Jim, those units with the *, they are the ones in the catalog, it will work with older head units, that’s the good thing about the P bus system. The preview has the basic range for the time being, more advanced units will be along later.
bbfoto, yep it will work fine but in a compatibility mode.
Please keep us posted on the video you are putting up on youtube. Thanks PioneerMan
Does anyone know why the 15000 file limit?
I noticed this on the Kenwood units too. This is the main reason I am looking at a full carputer, because I have more than 15000 files.
lunapark: It should work fine but I’m not sure of the level of display you would get, on that unit you may only get the 'USB T001' type of display, I’m going to look into that one when I have the time.
I would have had some video up sooner but my camera is playing up, maybe in the next 24 hours or so.
The 15000 file limit is probably due to memory constraints in the IC that drives the system, its a Telechips IC that is probably used by quite a few manufacturers. I have found that when using a HDD with a lot of files causes quite a delay before playback starts, that may be due to the pre-production unit that I have.
email@example.com when you find out.
Q. for pioneer men
Is't USB adapter CD-UB100 can work with model KEH-P7800R???
I recently installed this. I have a DEH-P860MP hu. The install is a breeze. Just a ground and constant power. The usb that you are using MUST be FAT. I have a 60 gig HDD that I had to re-format into two partitions in order for this to work. One word of advice, Win XP can only format FAT with a size smaller than 32 gig. Anything larger has to be NTFS and this unit does NOT recognize it. Also a word of caution, you CANNOT partition the drive. Example, 60 gig HDD formated 32 gig FAT and 28 NTFS. The unit will not recognize. If you have something small that 32 gig you're fine over that, in order to format you need either a computer running Win 98 SE or get (or find) a program called Partition Magic. You can however format a drive larger into 32 gig FAT and leave the remaining portion unallocated. With most Pioneer units, you CAN get Artist, Track, or Folder name to be displayed. There is a Scroll feature, scan (which give a 10 sec preview of each track), track forward and back. Fast forward and back. It really is a neat unit. It's nice to have all my music in one spot. Let me know if I can help any further with this.
It works with ALL pioneer head units with a P-Bus connection and this is denoted by the P in the model name....
DEH - CD Head unit
P - It has a P-Bus connection
7800 - Model number
MP - Added functions ( in this case it will play MP3 from CDR and CDRW disks)
I hope that has cleared some things up.
