Music format for USB
« on: May 11, 2015, 01:08:54 pm »
Ok ive tried the search and cant find anything
whats the best format to save your music as MP3 ?

Ive got a 16G USB stick and it don't seem to like the Trophy not sure what format the music is on or if the stick is too big in gigs for the bike but it seems to take an age to come on then sometimes it will track forward and sometimes it wont ??

I use a 64 gb stick and use MP3 format. The trick is to not have too many files in a single folder. I create a main folder called Music, and then I create a folder for each artist under that. This results in resonably quick start up time. I can also use the P button to move to a new folder.

I had one stick which didn't work and one which did, no idea why that was the case.  The files/music was the same on both.

Thanks Guys
the files are on the stick as individual albums not in a single file, ill give that a try and restrict each album to say 15 tracks see how it handles it LOL  :169:

That could be due to formatting the usb stick.

From the Owners Audio Handbook, which you should have been given with the Trophy :

Specifications :
USB port with flash drive and MP3 player support
(file types supported: AAC, FLAC, MP3, OGG, WAV and WMA)

You also need to make sure that none of the file ( Track ) names exceed 59 characters in length -
The audio system doesn't like it if they do ( although it doesn't tell you this little gem in the Audio Handbook  :087: )

Cheers  :821:
