    Just got my new car and it has got RNS-e with SD card slots. Can someone please tell me how to put music onto SD cards from i-tunes? I've read a few posts and understand you can only use standard SD and not the shdc ones. Thanks for any assistance.

    Yes - you need a standard SD card, and indeed a card reader of some sort, so that you can connect the SD card to your computer.

    Once you've got that - it's just a case of transferring MP3 files onto the card via windows explorer.

    if you dont have a reader handy then see if you have a device that takes sd then plug in pc & see if it recognises the device with card in as a hard drive then can transfer files to that drive then insert card into the rns & should work, with some devices like cameras they can show up in xp/vista as an actual drive aswell as a camera which is handy should no reader be about

    I've managed to get music off iTunes onto SD card (which is a 256mb standard SD ) but when I put card in RNS-e it comes up corrupt on screen? Yet when I put SD card back in my pc it plays the music off it, so the music has gone onto SD card. Any suggestions?

    I used to use CDex (as opposed to iTunes) to copy CDs onto the SD cards when I had my S4 so I may be completely barking up the wrong tree here, but are you using the FAT32 file system? I seem to remember this being necessary for it to work.

    Good point, but defaults to fat32 anyway & unless you're in IT 99% of users dont even know of different types, but could be though, I am thinking its the faudio format personally.

    So was it m4a then & not mp3?

    I would say the card is already fat32 mate, but you can insert into pc & then note the drive letter & then go into windows explorer under accessories & right click the drive letter on left under my computer & select format, then make sure it says fat32 then click start, this will make sure its on fat32, then rip mp3 tunes to it & should work fine.
