Do you have the songs in folders by artist/genre? Or are they all single files in the root directory?I loaded up some mp3's on a USB stick. It plays the songs but when I browse by artist or song it says "Loading" but does not do anything. Is there a bug in the software ?
I have the songs by artist. Each artist has his own directory. I can use the < and > buttons to advance songs but it just seems to go on forever with "Loading" when I browse. Its only a 4GB key with less than half of it used. Unless Uconnect 5.0 has a really slow processor I would have expected it to browse quite fast. My research has shown that Uconnect 5.0 operating system is written by Microsoft so I would not be surprised if it is buggy.Do you have the songs in folders by artist/genre?

Good point. I will try that and see if it makes a difference. If anybody else has experience with Uconnect 5.0 and mp3 files please post.Some players have limits on number of folders, character count, etc... I have no idea if that is the case here, but I would re-do the USB drive with just 5 albums and see if it performs better (or at all). As you increase the number you may find a cutoff point. Just a thought.
This is interesting. Do you have Uconnect 5 or 6.5 since I believe 6.5 would have a faster processor and more memory since that unit supports NAV. Also did you format as FAT or NTFS ?I copied the entire music directory from my iTunes folder on my computer to the mini-thumb drive. It works flawlessly and without any delay or lag. I leave it plugged in all the time.
I'm guessing I have about 600 songs and maybe 50 or 60 albums in total on the drive. Each album with its songs is in a separate directory. Nothing else is on the drive which is 16 GB (I think).
I have the 5.0 in the Renegade. I didn't format the thumb drive at all; I just copied the files onto it fresh out of the package.This is interesting.

Hi Wade,I get the same problem with the 5.0. It plays and I can move forward or back in sequential random order, but no browsing. It's a 32 Gb with 7000 songs in 8 folders by genre. When I tried it in a Uconnect 3.0 renegade at the dealer, i got browsing in a couple of minutes.
