Default Can i use the Alpine cda 9857 with non-iPod MP3 player?

The Alpine 9857 seems to have a ton of features for the iPod. Does anyone know if i can utilize the same features with a non-iPod player? the player in question is a USB type iRiver H320

thanks

I have the perfect answer for you. I use my H320 on my 9815. I bought the Ai-net adapter from Crutchfield a long time ago. I had an Ipod at one time (gf) but the iRiver just suits me better.

So yep, it'll work.

Kay, found it.

Then just get something like this:

i have a 9857 and a 3rd gen iPod that it doesnt seem to like, so i was thinking about getting the USB adapter and using some of the thumbdrives i have around ..

No. Alpine's control feature is done either through their Ai-Net port or the KCE422I. once you change from Ai-Net to RCA using a KCA121B, you lose all control. however, you still get audio, so for $19.95 its not a bad way to go.
