That's nothing I've seen to date.

The RCA inputs are usually analog so even if I used some device to play the content, there would be no display on the units other than "Input 1" or what your model shows.

-> Follow up your post with EXACT model numbers of this "head unit" so folk can see what other options there may be.

Hi and thanks for the reply. The head unit I have is a kenwood Dnn 9230dab. It doesn't have a hdmi input only rca. I would like to use my 2tb hdd instead of the usb flash drives I use at the moment but the unit can't read my hdd it's to much for it. Is there any way I can wired or wireless?

How to connect the drive to a device :)

Hi terminator786!

You can connect the WD My Passport wireless by following these steps:

1. Make sure that the drive is connected to your home’s Wi-Fi network or to a hotspot, or is shared, and that it's powered on as well.

2. Follow the user instructions provided with your media player to proceed through any initial setup or installation of drivers.

3. Using the navigation feature on your player, scan and detect your My Passport Wireless drive on your network.

4. Depending on the player you have, you may need to access a Settings/Network Setup page in the user interface to establish connection so that your player can link to your My Passport Wireless drive.

Hope this helps and feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Cheers! Happy
