[SOLVED] cdj-2000 Driver is not working for both players

Hello,

I'M trying to use Rekordbox as a playing for my cdj-2000 but one of my player is not working proprely.  the driver (where I found on the Pioneer website) can install the 1st player, but not my 2nd player.  I tried the same procedure with 3 different computers (windows) Vista, Windows 7 and Windows XP.  Same thing on all of them, the 2nd player can't connect and I saw that the computer was unable to install the player.

I checked everywhere for a windows driver, but it's look like that windows don't need a driver (aggregation like mac).

I was wondering if it's an hardware problem with my player ?  I switch the player 1 to 2 and the opposite, nothing, switch the wire, nothing.

I have the new rekordbox version + cdj 2000 driver.  I bought used players.

thank you for your time & help

Louis

if you're using RB, you don't install the drivers, wire everything up via ethernet cables and and link them, you don't use the USB cables and drivers when using Rekordbox

Hello,

thank you for the info.

you're right, and I bought an ethernet hub, same problems.

I tried Virtual DJ, with USB cables, RB with the hub and still the same problems.  I just tried Traktor and the same problems  but today the installation on another computer was ok, but the link connection was possible only with 1 player.

honestly I don't know what is going on with my 2nd player.

I hope that somebody will be able to help

thanks

Louis

because 1st I tried with Virtual dj so I had to install the drivers for the cdj-2000 (I saw that on youtube), one player was working

so I tried with RB, same problems

and my last shot was for Traktor, same problems..the same player was working

thanks

right, that I understand but right now the one issue i am trying to help you with is RB to laptop link which does not require anything but 1 ethernet cable from the player to the laptop as a test

also make sure your firewalls are off and that the proper Pioneer files/services are "allowed" to run and and are not being blocked by antivirus software

Hi again,

ok, I just try it with another computer (windows XP)

I installed the new version of RB only (no cdj-2000 driver) and the player number blinks and light up like you wrote, but I was unable to use the cdj device to play music.  it's normal ??  there's no Asio sound option.

thanks

Hi again,

ok, finally I got the link on both players (tried them individually), so I took a song from a usb flash drive and drag it to the (small icon) but I got this message on the player: E-8302:Player Error(C611).  I got the same message for both players.

still trying to solve another problem !

thanks

you cannot drag and drop from an external drive to a linked player, you MUST import it into the RB collection first or just plug the usb drive into the player

unless they changed something, haven't tried it myself, try just dragging a local track into RB, let it analyze and then drop it onto the player link

try dragging the track to the pc first, unplug the flash drive, take the new track ON the pc and drag it into RB and then to the player. I am not sure how RB deals with songs from an external like that, All my music is on my local drive

thank you for your help

you would not use a usb hub for this hookup, you need an ethernet switch. The USB has nothing at all to do with anything when using RB

ok thank you for the information !!  you're super fast.

so if both players are working (individually), it's probably a software problem when I'M using virtual dj ?!

thanks

no problem

 

yes, if the players are individually working through RB then the players are fine. 

Now when using VDJ, thats a whole new ballgame using all usb with a usb hub and doing the connects via VDJ. I personally do not use it so I wouldn't be much help troubleshooting that end

thanks again for all of your help !!

honestly I'll start using RB and I'll check if VDJ is necessary. I'M not sure if you have this problem but I'm using a USB flash on each player (link) and I have many problems with the music BPM.  when I'M mixing (usually) trance music the bpm is always changing so it's very difficult to get a perfect mix.  

thanks

yeah, it might be calculating on the fly, If you analyze everything "normal" in RB and then export to the USB drive, the bpm readout stays steady based on the analyzed info

Hey,

how are you ?

I'M not sure if you'll read this message, but everything is working so I would like to THANK YOU VERY MUCH !!

now, I would like to record my mix and I would like to know if you know a good software (I found audacity), but the record sound is not loud enough.

thank you for your time & help

have a great day

Louis

Plenty of guides on how to adjust the input recording levels or boost them after recording available online.

@BriChi - you get a biscuit for your patience. ;)
