Re: help

When you cycle through the source options on the stereo does 'usb' come up?

Re: help

How much music do you have on the memory stick? I loaded up a 64gb stick and it took hours for the car to play anymore than one track, perhaps it needs time to "read" through all the files?

If memory serves well my 2008 500 could only play music from 16gb stick (or even 8gb) as it got confused with larger capacity sticks

Re: help

Hi thanks for the reply to my problem with playing music I cut down the files on a stick and it played ok so I must have had too many files.
then i put my music stick on my laptop and found it empty is it possible to wipe the files by accident whilst trying to play them in the car.
many Thanks
Malcolm

Re: help

What format did you put the music on your stick? As for the erasing not sure, was everything off when you removed it?

Re: help

Hi thanks I tried a smaller stick with about a dozen files on it and plugged it in then turned on the ignition and media player was displayed and it started playing so you were right I had too much info.
Many Thanks.I must try to get a descent hand book I sent of for a fiat handbook but it doesnt say anything about the radio/audio it just says that info is on a supp;lement.
