Hello Pulse!
I can see that you have tried to help a lot of people with this Error code over the last years, I hope you can help me out of this one!

I am having a big problem with this E-8302: Cannot play track(000D). It happens a lot of times when I play, seemingly at random and the only way to fix the problem is to turn the CDJ 2000 Nexus off and back on.

When I'm choosing a song it will load and It seems that its slower than before the problem?
I can repeat the error consistently when I search forward 1-2min and place a loop 1-8 bars and spamming CUE, then it usually gets stuck and a few seconds later E-8302: Cannot play track(000D) shows in the display.

The CDJ now is stuck in that loop or that song. Only way out is a restart. Even the USB flash drive I'm playing from wont let me USB stop unload it just keeps blinking red when I try that.
It seems that when using link and looping songs will accelerate the problem, tho the problem can happen when I just play normal and relaxed.

It seems that I get the same issues that other people are getting with this error code.

I have tried to:
- Reanalyse the whole music collection and format the USB flash drive twice to FAT32 with no luck.

- Installing earlier versions of Rekordbox, no luck

- Used different formatting tools, no luck

- Formatted the whole computer putting my collection on a external ssd in the meanwhile. That seemed to help me somewhat for a few weeks until I added more songs and the same error came back.

- Moved my entire collection from D: drive 1T SATA to my OS C: drive SSD PCIe, with the feeling that the 1T drive was having problem with the exporting from rekordbox, no luck

- Tried without the switch I use. Only link between the CDJs, no luck

- Used different USB flash drives, no luck.

- Checked for corrupted files. I found some, but they do play without any problem. Just in case, I tried to remove them from the collection. But still the problem remain.

- Put all my music files trough a mp3 name editor to remove numbers and symbols that I had a feeling might be the problem. That did not help at all.

I dont know if this makes any difference but I always put my files trough Mixed in Key. I saw that some people that got E-8302: Cannot play track(000D) also used Mixed in Key. But this shouldn't have any effect on the problem?

It seems that when I try to copy big files in windows to the USB Flash Drive FAT32 it jumps from 190MB/s and down to under 100MB/s even sometimes it stops for a few seconds. Same happens to other FAT32 Flash Drives. Maybe Windows 10 are having some problem handling FAT32?

And now I'm here asking for advice. I feel I have tried everything I could find about this.
Its SUPER frustrating that I have used so much money on CDJ/DJM and time loving to DJ and then suddenly get soo stuck on this Error code.

Hoping for a quick respons on this problem!
Sorry if there is some bad spelling in my writing.

Best regards Lars Lotto, Norway

Your extensive testing and ruling out error factors leads me to think that it might be a hardware problem. Does both players give you errors or only one?

Yeah, I'm with @Henrik > You've done all the right things to try and rule out where the error could be (even going further than most would with stuff that likely wouldn't make a difference), but the only thing I'm not clear on is if this happens to just one of your CDJs or both?

@Pulse It happens to both players, it dosent seem to me to be a problem with the players since a lot of my other DJ friends dont get any problem at all with both of my players.

@Lars > Okay, so if it's not happening with other DJs using their USB drives in your CDJs, and it happens to both players, it's likely then that this issue is related to your content or the drives to which it's exported.

To try and narrow things down, I'd like to ask you to try a few things...

1) Format one of your drives on your computer, take it to a friend's rekordbox and export some of their songs and test it the same way.

2) Format one of your drives on a friend's computer, export songs from your rekordbox and test it again.

3) Using one of your currently prepared USB drives, test it in another player to see if the same errors are exhibited.

Now its been a while since I posted.
Since last time I've bought a new computer since I had to upgrade my PC anyway I thought since I have this bug as well I might just get a new one.

I started adding the song back inn to my playlists and over to the USB drive.

After like 3 playlists I had no problem it seemed playing with link funktion with no problems.

But after I got enough songs/playlist over til my drives it started to happen again..

Same error code that keeps me not going anyway with my DJ career.

I just tried the following point you asked me about.

1: I did this, when I tried to play on mye CDJ's I got the same error code.

2: Tried this as well with the same result when I tried on my CDJ's again.

3: I want to another friend that got CDJ 2000 nxs and DJM 900 nxs. And again the same faulty error code comes up.

It seem totally random that this is happening. Do you guys at Pioneer heard of any similar problem? This is seriously freaking me out that I'm now totally stuck and cant get out of this problem.

(The error code does NOT happen when i skip the link function and use 2 Identically set up USB Drives with the same playlists.)

So without link connected this code does not happen.

Waiting for your reply, and I hope you have more ideas that you can think of.

Are you able to consistently replicate the issue with one particular track?

I can consistently replicate the issue with a lot of tracks, it seems to happen with different tracks everytime, so it seem totally random. I get the feeling that its a usb drive bug but I've tried a lot if different drives so I'm not sure it can be this.

Hi Lars,

I am also getting the ERROR-8302 ... (000D) from time to time, and can also quite easily replicate the Error.

Check out this thread of mine where I explain in detail, but it sounds like the same problem etc. (Also when juggling CUE and trying to LOOP)


One thing I have to add, I can also replicate the ERROR-8302 ... (000D) on a CDJ2000NXS that is not connected to Pro-Link or another player. .

@Pulse and the rest of the Pioneer team: I know you guys like to keep things in one thread, sorry I for some reason missed this thread when I searched the forum. If you want me to delete the other thread I created  and paste all that info in here, just let me know. :)

I hope that there can be a firmware fix for this.
