    USB issue

    Hi there,

    I'm having difficulty playing music from my USB. I have formatted my USB to FAT32 and all 100 odd songs are MP3's.
    It plays about a dozen songs then stops. I can't go forward or back. I've made 9 folders of 12 songs each but it still stops about half way through the 1st folder. If I push the P button it goes to the next folder but again only plays a few songs and jams.
    Should I make more folders of less songs and just push the P button to go to the next folder ???
    Any advice but would be welcomed.

    Thanks
    Alex

    Hi Alex (NZ),

    First of all can I refer you to a useful Resource on the Forum,
    which is set of "Self Help" Pages that I wrote and maintain,
    listing many of the "Common Faults & Issues" that may be encountered :

    HOW TO : Check the most common faults & issues.

    It comprises 3 pages, with subjects listed alphabetically, and is often a good place to start
    if you have ANY problem with your Trophy, as it may have already been discussed,
    and a solution may be sitting there waiting for you !  :169:

    Have a look at Page 1 and scroll down to the Section :
    A / AUDIO: / USB Audio Memory Stick / Media Player will not play / will not FWD to next Track

    You will find information there relating to a limitation on the maximum length of File names
    ( and Folders ? ) used for MP3 tracks that are played from a USB stick, which "may" sort this problem for you.

    Let us know if it works, or if you find an alternative solution  :028:

    Cheers  :821:

    Personally I gave up with having folders, I just cut and pasted each mp3 file from my pc to a USB stick or I should say SD card that sits in the USB holder.

    Thanks Coconut for your help. I have increased my USB to 20 folders and reduced the MP3 files to an average of 24.9 MB each. I'll try again in the weekend and if it still jams up I'll will try the SD card method that earthman has kindly suggested.

    Cheers and thanks guys,
    Alex

    Alex,
    Elsewhere on the forum, I posted about this issue.
    What MIGHT be an influencing factor is the length of the filename.
    Folders work just fine, but the entire path needs to be less than.... crap, I can't recall if it was 32 or 64 characters. I THINK it was 64 characters. As a result, I've formatted my USB key like so:
    <root>:\<album>\<track#:02> - <title>
    This means that the folders inherit the album name, and the files within each folder are simply named with track number and song title.
    This generally means your complete filename and path will be under 64 characters, unless you're adding albums and song with stupidly long titles.
    My bike history: (1) c.1982 Honda CT125, (2) c.1986 Yamaha SRX250, (3) 1988 Honda CBR1000FH, (4) 1989 Suzuki GSX-R750 Slingshot, (5) 2012 Suzuki Boulevard M90, (6) 2013 Triumph Trophy SE.

    Alex (NZ),

    As per the information in the "HOW TO" article linked to, it's not the size
    ( in "Memory" ) of the File ( Mb / Gb etc ) but the length of the File NAME,
    which is reported to work if under 60 characters, so "Trophy.mp3" should be fine,
    but "TriumphTrophy1215SEwithallthebellswhistlesandfarklesyoucouldimagine.mp3" probably wouldn't,
    and as pointed out by audio2u below, this probably applies to the filename and path combined.

    Cheers  :821:

    Whilst I don't know for sure whether that is the case on the Trophy, it certainly IS how most x86 computer systems behave (i.e. the character limit includes PATH as well as FILENAME).

    yes will be the same as it is a function of FAT file system  also on older formats (like FAT) spaces are not allowed either?  in name or path.
