Ok in order to do this you will have to go to the main menu, and then you scroll to usb functions then select this function.

The next step is to scroll to export names select that function.

Then the jb7 will make up a file on the usb called JB7 catalogue. This file will contain the names of all the tracks and albums stored on the brennan this will allow you to rename lots of tracks and album names.

In this file you will be able to edit any track names or album names.

Hope this helps!!!

JB7 vs X10

Last month I bought the new Cocktail Audio X10.

I had a Brennan JB7 before it.

What I can say is that Cocktail Audio X10 is a lot better than Brennan, it is more reliable, it has more features, and sound is very good.

I bought it from Italy: http://www.cocktailaudio.it because I live in Milan.

The most important X10's features, in my opinion, are:

  1. CD Ripping in FLAC (you save space, but quality is the same);
  2. Playlist creating (endless playlists);
  3. Discography View (very useful!! You can list album by artists);
  4. IRadio: you can listen and also register tons of free high quality internet radios!

X10 software is very good and it is easily upgradable by internet.

Does the apple ipod work with the brennan jb7? just curious becasue i gonna buy one at the end of the month and i wanted to know if i could work my ipod with it?


RE: RE: The Brennan JB7

The best way to do this, is to play the I pod through the aux-in connector, I believe this is the only way to select tracks and use the I pod structure.

You may be able to transfer the contents of your iPod to the JB7,but all tracks will be represented in a single album without track information. You can also play from the attached device, but again you can't select or search the tracks, so you will have to start from the beginning and move forward.

i have been leaving my jb7 on constantly is that normal practise because it constantly shows me the time on the display screen even when its off. its a very costly product and i im scared of it overheating so should i have it off from the electric switch, or constantly leave it plug in ?

RE: The Brennan JB7

You can turn JB7 off at any time as long as it is not in the middle of completing a task. A good way to turn off JB7 is to press and hold the stop button – twice. This stops everything and parks the disk drive heads.

RE: Views on capabilities of devices other than the JB7

In the time since I last viewed this forum (and contributed way back on p.3), other products have appeared that offer an alternative to the JB7, notably the Cocktail X10. Can anyone point me towards a similar forum discussing that box, or is this the only place? I notice a few previous posts have mentioned it but not in any great detail.

RE:

my jb7 is showing og on the display screen what does this mean ?

RE: RE:

If the JB7 states 0G, it generally means it is not reading the Main Hard Drive, this can happen for 2 reasons:

1) That the JB7 skipped the disk check on power up. You need to allow the JB7 to run through the full disc check when the main power is switched on. You will see the JB7 working through a series on numbers and 'checking disc'.

If any disc errors occur at start up (the JB7 finds files or pathways that it does not like) then to fix these - Its Play to fix and Next to skip.

If the fix is skipped it marks the disk as not present so you get 0G.

The skip option is really only for the factory in case it gets stuck fixing the disk – customers generally always need to press play to fix. On occasions there can be more than one problem so they have to press play a few times.

2) Another instant when this can occur is if the unit is turned off while its writing to the disk. Meaning the Brennan was turned of at the mains while it was doing something. Most obviously this happens when a customer has got a CD stuck in the JB7, and they press eject and switch of the unit on and off to retrieve it. Therefore this action causes the Brennan to think there is no disk attached . We always recommend press and hold the stop button twice – it stops the disk and parks the heads – before pulling the plug.

3)To fix a 0G the best thing to do is run a clean up by following these Menu options:

Go to the menu > Scroll through and select Settings > Scroll through and select Maintenance > Scroll through and select Clean up.
You will be then asked if you are sure, select ok.
It will state working then go back to the clock.

4) And then re-set you Brennan:

Go to the menu > Scroll through and select Settings > Scroll through and select Maintenance > Scroll through and select Reset settings.
It will then go back to the clock.

5) Finally after doing the above, switch the Brennan off and then back on and allow it to run the full disc check.
