#348771 Bluetooth Install Guide?

Posted by GothicRebel on 29 March 2014 - 08:42 PM

I can't believe after all this time it was the wrong cable that was causing the problems.
 
Andy (Gothic Rebel) thank you so much for actually having a solution that works!


You are most welcome. Great feeling isn't it when you plug it all in and..., you hear the music. :)

Glad you got it all working.

#326205 Usb Music Track Count

Hmm

 

Just swapping music back to the USB stick as i type and i'll give it a whirl. See how it goes this time.

Works Perfect. Has to be 1000 songs per folder. Folders have to be named Ford1, Ford2 so on.

Initializing doe take a little while on mine at first but works kick !Removed!. Have shuffle set to all so it flicks folders.

Really happy with this car now.

Its instant on mine never noticed a delay. Prob due to the size of the drive and amount of tracks?

Ah got you makes sense I don't use VC yet I just control from the stereo and stalk

I normally do too.

 

When turning your car on and switching to USB, Does your inisilazing take a short while too. 30+ secs ? Think mine can take up to a min if not longer

My folder names are just the album names and list in alphabetical order. Unless there is a minimum folder name length :wacko:

Just read in the book that if they are named Ford1 so on that you can use voice control with the folders then.

1024 is 1kb it seems your problem is the file format system fat32. This format has a single file size limit it may well be the other files exceed that size.

Try formatting the drive to a different format such as NTFS. of course back up your media on a different drive first everything will be deleted.

Another possibly is that files may not be readable from folders. You could try using a sync program like windows medua and transfer your files through thst it should create the needed formats and folders readable

Just read the book. Has to been 1000 songs per folder. I did have all my music set to 4k worth of them just in the root of the USb stick

I then arranged them 1024 tracks to a folder and folders named A-F, F-P, P-Z. But it kept saying Invaild.

 

So im going to redo the folder names as it says in the book. Ford1, Ford2, Ford3. and only have 1000 songs per folder and see how that works

Yeah I would give it a try. With the interface you get in the focus I feel that have navigating through 50 or 60 folders is a little clumbersome , about 20 is good for me. To be honest I wouldn't be surprised it there was some kind of limit on folders/file path length etc but can't find any info about this


Ive just dumped all the tracks on the root of the usb stick no folders.

Try putting over 1024 tracks on a smaller capacity stick and see if that works OK if your firmware is already up to date

Yesh i updated it not long after getting the first retrofit cable.
My old man has a 128gb stick. Might try his. Or i may try my stick in his mondeo.

Hi all.

Just bought myself a 64gb fat32 USB stick.
I've added over 4k of music. But it's only playing 1024 of the tracks. How do I get it to recognise all of the music?

Pull it towards the back of the car mate not towards the door. Pull the door seal off first

Higgsy, how did you get that small pannel off where you've put the Bluetooth module?
I know the door trim needs to come off but i cant see how it comes away? Do i need to remove other parts around it to remove it?

Take it back and say what ever you did hasn't worked. Either sort it or I want a refund.


#321405 Illuminated Ignition Ring.

Posted by GothicRebel on 14 January 2014 - 12:21 PM

Becareful with the ring when instslling it.

Tip. Unlock and pull the steering coloum all the way towards you before unlcipping everything.
And becareful when slipping the bottom cover with the ring in back over the ignition barrel as the plastic LED ring is flimsy and brakes easy.
