So, I have been playing music through my iPod Shuffle on the USB port. I know for a fact there are 135 songs on it but the car is only registering 52? Why would that be?


Also, how would I go about loading songs onto the car's hard drive? I can't find this info in the handbook.


Any advice greatly received! :)

Are all 135 songs authorised to play on that iPod? What file formats are they? Do they have any DRM protection?

To copy files across you simply place the actual files on a USB flash drive, and use the Import function in the media browser (press Options).

As Profiteroles says, I think the problem could be with file formats. My system won't play any Apple Lossless files. If you have those on your iPod Shuffle, perhaps it's skipping those? (ACC seems to offer the best-quality playable format.)

So I converted the files to AAC files (Or so I thought) but it made no difference. The car's still only registering 52 songs.
I might try connecting it through the AUX instead of the USB to see if it makes any difference.

Oh technology, wonderful when it works!
