    Car CD Player not picking up all songs from memory stick!!

    Hi there,
    I know this isn't a problem directly with astras but as i have one and everyones been helpful with other problems i had i thought i would ask on here,

    Basically I have a sony CD player in my car which has a USB port, i had been using and old ipod of mine but as i have got more music it has run out of memory and instead of forking out for a bigger ipod i tohught i would get a larger memory stick (8gb)

    i have just transfered all my music to this it the right folders etc, i went to plug it in and it seems only 2/3s of the music is on it, i plugged back into my laptop and all the music is on there, is there anything i can do so i can have more than 2gb worth of music recognised on the Cd player??

    thanks

    Are all the music files in the right file structure & file formats that the Sony recognises? Check you owners manual to confirm this.

    yeah ive checked all this,
    i even tryed splitting all the folders in genres (drum n bass, rnb, rock...etc) and it still knocked off the last few, i take it there must be a limit on the amount of music it can recognise??

    It may have a limit to the size of stick it can read.

    there could be a limit to the amount of folders the the HU can read. IIRC mine can see 500, but I know some makes/models are lower than this. Check the spec of yours or post model number.

    If you are over the limit just put a load of songs into one folder, rather than one folder per album.

    have you checked the bitrate of the mp3's, IIRC some of the units are funny about tracks with certain bitrates
