    DXZ785USB and hard drive

    tried hooking up my clarion and a seagate 250 gig harddrive. its reading a error 2. i dont think i have enough power going to the drive. whats the plug you can plug in your cig lighter then hook the hard drive up to to give it enough power. i'll start from there.

    Re: DXZ785USB and hard drive

    bummer. i bought an 80gig bus powered hd for the car that has 2 connections, one usb and one that looks like an old phone charger. it will run from just the usb connection on a computer but the addition hole allows me to tap into a second usb power source when the connection has a low output. i used one of those for the second source.

    no i just use the bass and treble. i never touch it though. its set on flat. i am running it active though and its been a great sounding deck. havent had any problems. if you need help setting that feature search for parametric eq on google or this site. theres no one way to set it, it all differs from car to car
