in the MP3 section of my HU's manual it says "Maximum allowable number of files is 512" does that mean that I can only put 512 songs on one disc?

lol, everyone is either guessing or assuming...no one actually knows

That is correct. The maximum number of files your HU can read off of the directory on a single disc is 512.
Having said that unless you're burning your compressed music at an ungodly low bitrate you'll never be able to fit that many songs on a CD-R or CD-RW disc in the first place so it's pretty academic that 512 is your limit.
If you are burning at such a low bitrate you actually managed to run up against that 500+ file limit then I'd personally hate to hear what the music you're listening to sounds like no matter what type of equipment you're running. :crap:

naw man it's a dvd
why would they make that such a low limit....that's not very many songs compared to how many I COULD fit on a dvd...that's like half what I could put on there...

Okay - just for comparison I had a look in the manual for my XXV-01D and it says that the maximum amount of folders per disc that my unit can read is 100 and the maximum amount of files per folder the unit can read is 4,096.
That gives us a total of 409,600 potential files (not that I could ever fit that many on a disc at once) so there's got to be something wrong with that 512 files spec on your DVD player...(since there's obviously a huge difference in storage capacity from an 800mb CD-R/RW to a 4.3gb DVD-R/RW.)

yeah, the only way for me to really test it is to go through and count how many files its reading...but I think I'm gunna call Clarion tonight and ask whats up...cuz that kinda ticks me off
one of the main reasons I got it was the fact that I could put 1000+ songs on 1 disc and if I'm limited to 512 then wtf
