Copy MP3 & WMA Music Files From USB to HDD on Touch Screen Navigation Radio
I'd appreciate it if someone could direct me to a thread where the topic is discussed. Or, if someone was able to troubleshoot the issue I'd greatly appreciate the help. I made an attempt to copy MP3 & WMA music files from a KINGSTON Data Traveler 101 Generation 2 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive but the radio was unable to recognize the device. I got the message "Invalid USB Device Detected". Any thoughts?
On most radios, I know that they can only support a specific number of folders. If you have them arranged or organized in folders, it might be a good idea to just drag and drop the music right onto the USB.
At first I tried to copy the files by just dropping them to the USB. It was a mix of MP3 & WMA files (about 1400 files). But it didn't work. Then I tried it by using a folder with the files in it (this time only around 360 & only MP3 formatted files) but I got the same result "Invalid USB Device Detected".
Try going into the menu and check the memory remaining first, if it's good the. I would try a smaller USB stick. It may just not be able to handle something that size
Not familiar with the radio, but I am familiar with older devices not recognizing high capacity flash drives. also if you have a lot of music on it, a different radio I had took about 10 minutes to read a 2gb flash drive with a little over 1gb of music on it.
What have we got?
We have one heavily armed Recreational Vehicle
I tried a 1GIG USB Flash drive didn't work (not a message or error) , followed instructions on CD and it seems that the usb is for an ipod/iphone usb connection. didnt try that yet.
What I did is I copied some songs on a cd and moved the files from CD to HD and that was ok, next will be the ipod
The files need to be in Fat 32 format. However even if they are, the HD may still not be recognized by the radio since the "driver" or software isn't installed on the radio for recognition.
Jeep also doesn't have an "official" external hard drives that they say will work. I haven't found one yet. Flash drives work fine, but I wanted to just plug in my 300gb drive with music on it in the console and be done, but no luck yet.
Just checking-- the music isn't protected right? Meaning iTunes protected with AAC encoding.
The first time I tried to copy the files (a mix of MP3 & WMA), I think the WMA files might have been. But, I tried a second time with only MP3 files that are not protected and it still didn't work. I'll try a different and smaller capacity drive today and see what I find out. Thank you all for your feedback. I'll post my findings.
I bought a SANDISK CRUZER usb flash drive and it worked. I noticed that this drive didn't have any "original" file/data management software in it. The previous flash drive I used did. I don't know if that had anything to do with the previous drive not working, but it may have. Nevertheless, the SANDISK CRUZER flash drive worked. Thank you all for your help.
