I've owned my 9835 since they first started stocking them. I didn't start burning MP3 until recently. The problem is that the player seems to not like some brands of discs. Some brands will load pretty quickly while others will have an error code or not work at all. What is weird is that I can take that same disc an try it in my buddies cda-7897 it works fine and loads pretty quickly.


Overall it seems that the the 9835 loads times plain *****. Other then that the CDA-9835 is one of the best on the market and I love it.

yea the load time ****. my 9835 also seems to not read some disc names but when the same cd is loaded into my other HU (kenwood kdc-x769) it reads it fine and loads up really quick.

my 9830 ***** too. it's the new alpines that are real slow. my friend has a 03 model and it's relatively fast but not as fast as my old pos kenwood. oh well, i guess it's a tradeoff. kinda makes me wanna get a new h/u in a couple years though cuz i was planning on keeping it till it died

this is exactly what mine does, but when I put the same cd in the cda-7897 ( 02 phantom face model ) it works fine.

I just don't get it.

my 9835 has absolutly no issues when loading an MP3 CD, or any CD for that matter... the only problem with mine is where i broke it with a sodering iron lol

Alpines Mp3 loading time are the fastest out of any head unit out. I have yet to have an error on mine and ive had 5 alpines. Mabye you guys need to read the manual for your Alpines, or Nero on how to burn Mp3s correctly.

My Pioneer 860 loads much faster than my friend's 7897. Same CD too. It is about half a second on mine and 1.5 seconds on Alpine IIRC.

My 7995 usually takes a couple seconds to read mp3 cds, but once the initial read is done it's fast.

Mine is quick enough for me big time, the only Thing I dont like for some reason it will never read the names of the discs I put in, I odnt know if thats a feature on there or not, but it just wont do it, any ideas?

The difference between them all are like not even 2 seconds from the fastest loading to the slowest. So you might look at a top of 5 seconds, whoopty-doo....

Can the cda-7875 load mp3's? I have one, but I haven't tried to play mp3's yet. I have read some places that it can and other places say it can't. Does anybody else have this HU? Also, what is the advantage of using mp3's? Can you just fit more songs on a cd? thanks

Umm...i have the same problem, i mean my alpin 7894 loaded mp3 CD's faster than my 9835 does. It takes forever, then sometimes it says error...i'll eject and re-insert 2-3 times b4 it actually decides to read it sometimes. Kind of pisses me off, but i deal with it...

yes, it is burnt as a data CD as opposed to audio. Therefor you can fit 700Mb if mp3's instead of only 80minutes of audio. It's usually anywhere from 100-150 songs depending on kbps/quality. peace

Well finally I figured it out tthe problem after talking to my installer. the problem is not in the unit but the way you burn the MP3. You have to burn them a little slow, around 8x-12x.

This is true because I didn't start having problems until I got a new burner and started burning at 52x.

Bingo dood :) Your burner must have been a $30 special off the wall brand..? My yamaha f1 burnes at 48x and my alpines read them flawless, I do not even notice a load time between songs!

Get the latest edition of nero, thats what I use to burn all my mp3 cd's for my cda-9807 alpine deck. Everything works great...

Do you guys know of a deck, preferably alpine, that can play mp3-dvds??????

one you are sure about??

I don't know what the problem with the program could be, it maybe possible its jsut the disc itself, have you tried other brands of disc? Perhaps use CD-R or RW, which ever you are currently using, and trying switching them around.

Who knows -.-

First off thats for the responses but please don't if you don't have the 9835. I'm only referring to 9835, I've owned several other models lastone being the 7897 and kow that the problem does not exist in any other unit but the 9835. I just got done tuning my buddies 9835 in his maxima and his does the same thing.

After talking to my installer he stated to try ripping the mp3 slower which I did and still the unit acts up.

I'm going to try not filling the disc complete up to the limit and see if that helps. If not time to call up Alpine and *****....

Yes I have tried several brands and the only one that was decent was Sony, but they burned slow as hell 4x max.

i have the same problem but after i load the cd a few times it seems to take less and less time to load all the mp3s

Try finalizing the CD in your burning program. That has always sped up read times for mp3 discs for me, in car, portable, and home systems.
