Hi everyone, I've got an issue that I hope someone can enlighten me on.
I have a 64GB SanDisk Cruiser Fit USB drive that I copy my music too (in .mp3 format) and then use in my car. My Radio can see the USB drive and plays the music directly from it. I format this drive to FAT32 (the only file system the car can read) using an external tool.
I have about 6500 track on it, with 119 folders. Everything is organized by Artist. The car IS ABLE to see and play everything perfectly.
MY ISSUE: When I add a NEW FOLDER, the car never sees it (yet my PC does). However, if I add mp3's to a folder that already exists, the car DOES see and plays them fine. So, whenever I add a new artist (folder), I need to RE-FORMAT the drive, then copy everything, including the new folder, back to the drive. Once this is done the car sees the new artist along with the older stuff.
The process of re-formatting and re-copying 6500+ tracks takes about 3 hours and is a real pain. I don't understand why the car doesn't see folders added but does see tracks added to existing folders.
I use the RidgeCrop Format tool (http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/) with a 4096 allocation size, each time I need to reformat the USB drive.
Any help would be appreciated.
