    Is it an SDHC card? RNS-E will only read standard high speed SD cards, it does not read SDHC (high capacity) cards.

    He said its a 1gb card so seeing as the minimum SDHC is 4gb thats unlikely...

    That's one possible cause.

    Others are:
    - they're not mp3 files
    - they have a new version of the ID3 tag, the RNS-E only works with old versions of the ID3 tag.

    First thing to try is check the file extensions are .mp3, then re-formatting, then using an MP3 editor to change the ID3 tag version.

    I had the same prob and can confirm that the files must be MP3 and the cards standard SD.

    Hope you endjoy the car - I've got the 2.0T S-Line Special Edition Quattro and LOVE it

    No SD cards work on the Symphony - it hasn't got any SD card slots!!!

    Only the RNS-E has SD card slots.

    The Symphony II will only play audio CDs, but the Symphony II+ will play MP3s in it's INTERNAL CD changer.

    The OE EXTERNAL CD changer can ONLY play audio CDs.

    Another thing to try is to right click on the drive, select properties / tools / check drive for errors and let it run a check.
