Playing music from an SD card

Post by ChrisL » Thu Nov 16, 2017 9:35 pm


I've put a 64Gb SD card in the car, full of directories named after artists, containing sub-directories named after albums with MP3 files in them.

All the MP3 files are tagged with v 3.2 tags.

However, I cannot make head nor tail of how the tracks are ordered when using the buttons on the steering wheel.

Sometimes it seems to go through the tracks alphabetically irrespective of album or artist. Other times it seems totally random.

Does anyone have any clues please :)

Thanks in advance,

Are you on shuffle sometimes? Also if you play via tracks and not album etc. I believe it plays all tracks alphabetically, not going from album to album.
