    SD cards

    I have looked everywhere to find help on this.

    I have the correct cards.

    When in the sat nav , they only show one folder and one album.

    When i go to scan i finds all the tracks for other albums.

    But i can for the life of me not get it to view separate folders ( like playlists )

    I am on a mac by the way,

    Any help before i just give up !

    Being on a mac is your first problem!

    There are two ways to do it. One way uses M3U files and the RNS-E reads those files to sort your music out. The other way, which is the way I do it, is to simply have each album in an individual folder on the root of the card. Then when you navigtae on the RNS-E all you're doing is going through those folders as if they were albums.

    Mine are all in the format of:

    Folder Name: Artist - Album
    Track name: Track number (in 2 digits or it puts 10 next to 1) - Track name.

    Works great for me.

    Have you pressed return on the RNS-E to get back to the list of folders?

    ahh no i had not pressed the return button ! BINGO , i love this forum !

    In my defence when i first tried it i only had Two album's ( folder's ) and they showed up
    when i put the card in strait away
    Then when i filled up the disk with a load more and put it back in it only showed one album , this is why i was a bit lost , i assumed that you scrolled down the first album track list and the next album would be below it. Never even thought to press the return.

    And Stazz mac's are for cool kids !

    Although i have to use a pc for vag-com , which is painfull.

    While on the subject,

    What are the limits of the RNS-E?

    How big a card may have to be able to read?

    it will use 4 gig cards but only the old type (not sdhc) - easiest to look on amazon.co.uk

    there is plenty of freeware to create playlists (one for each cd usually, with the playlist name the name of the cd) and these show up in the default view instead of having to browse folders - makes the rns-e/sd cards work more like a multi-cd changer

    remember max 512 files/folders total per card of any size - anything more and it just wont show up on the rns-e

    It's been discussed before but I really don't see what benefit the M3U files gives. When I press CD/TV I have a full list of folders titled as albums as I said above, I go into that folder and it shows me the tracks listed in order and then I press on the first one to play!

    I have a problem.

    I have a SD 4GB Card, with 459 songs spread over 30 folders and i cant read it.

    It starts loading, but never shows the songs, why?

    459 songs + 30 folders = 489 files

    I think the limit for files + folders is about 400....

    On mine there is no CD/TV the button has become media. The screen also looks alot clearer for some reason.

    Just read the differences on the new units and it's a huge difference 32 GB SHDC cards and higher resolution etc.

    Sure you haven't got SDHC cards? If so, they wont work as I had the same problem as you. I tried endlessly with a variety of cards and gave up and reverted to 2GB cards NON SDHC cards. mymemory.co.uk had an offer on for 4 for 20 quid.

    I bought 1 through this link for 25 GBP.

    But the Amazon a few days later canceled the deal and returned me the money. And now as to 99GBP.

    Did no one has 4GB SD's for Sale?! Nor is there any way to make the SDHC be recognized by the RNS-E?

    No, just says media which is better really, because when you press media it then shows you a list of AMI / SD / NAV Loader / Etc.
