Uconnect tips Just got a 2017 in July. Still figuring stuff out. Media ok, at the moment cannot seem to delete the one playlist showing, and cannot create a new one and cannot read one from the USB drive. Just found a document that mentions playlists and it might be that only works from an iPod... damn... OK, some more clarification, playlists are a list of music to play (play-list)... and M3U file is not a music file, so you need to see if your player supports playlists. Here's the first few lines of an .M3U playlist file: #EXTM3U T\Tangerine Dream\The Best of Tangerine Dream, The Blue Years\1-05 21st Century common man (part 2).mp3 L\Led Zeppelin\Misc\Led Zepplin - Black Dog.mp3 G\Green Day\21st Century Breakdown\21 Guns.mp3 T\Tangerine Dream\220 Volt Live\Tangerine Dream - 220 Volt Live - 08 - Hamlet.mp3 There are kind of 3 formats... the ones I know of are .M3U, and .WPL (Windows Play List), .FPL and one called .M3U8... of these I have been focusing on the .M3U, which seems to be popular. I have gotten my car to recognize these, but weird results, sometimes I would get the right playlist name but empty, sometimes they did not show. Today, I completed an experiment that bore fruit, because sometimes I did get a functioning playlist. I found that it would read a "new" memory stick, but not always re-read one that had been updated. After isolating new files, different file dates, and reformatting the memory stick, looks like I hit on the solution. My theory was I was somehow not getting the car to re-read the stick. So I changed file dates, no change, old playlists stayed, new ones did not read. I changed names of the playlists, same result Formatted the memory stick and reloaded the files... BUT I noticed the "quick format" option was default on in Windoze Did the "full format", takes a long time... and bingo all my playlists showed up and the old ones went away. So, I'll post this on my site. I will experiment with how big the playlist can be, i.e. the number of songs... I have about 4,000 mp3 files on the stick, and I have about 4 operational playlists. I'll explore the limits and post results. There's also some things you have to remember when making a playlist on a removable memory stick and not all programs will work on removable media. Also, seems that if you "delete" a playlist, i.e. no longer on the "new" memory stick, it will still stay there, but show as empty. Have to experiment with 2 memory sticks.
