    how to setup flash drive with music (folders and such)

    i have a usb adapter for my 800prs, and im looking at buying a small flash drive and putting some songs on there.

    how do i go about setting it up with folders, genres, artist and such.

    is it just drag and drop or what?

    Pretty much just drap and drop
    Once you get them on the drive you can make new folders to add songs to.
    I have about 8gb's on a flash drive, put it in the car and hit random and just let it play.
    Its great.

    Re: how to setup flash drive with music (folders and such)

    i usually put 50 or 99 songs per directory. makes it easier (at least in my mind) to find songs i like, but random is still my favorite.

    Re: how to setup flash drive with music (folders and such)

    when you throw it on random, will it go through all the directorys? or just the one your in?

    and what would you guys recommend for a decent size flash drive. and would any brand be good? im looking to spend around 20$ or so.

    Re: how to setup flash drive with music (folders and such)

    i believe that it will scan all folders for random, but i may be wrong. i know one brand on the market only uses the first 4 or 5 directories when in random mode but i am pretty sure that is alpine.

    any usb stick will do. usually tigerdirect or buy.com have the best deals. i would say gt an 8g, maybe 16. the cd-ub100 will read the 8g much faster. i personally have a pair of 8g and swap them as needed since it takes less than a few seconds to do so. keep in mind that the ub100 can only sidplay the first 8 characters of the track title too. ran into that problem when i had mine and my old 5700. you can go larger though as i was able to run my 80g bus-powered drive from it.

    so it will only display the first 8 character of the title, or everything like artist, genre, title, album

    or can you not put in artist and such?

    Just copy and past into the thumb drive that should be it. If you want you can right click and click create new folder in the thumb drive and name it the artist and than past the songs from that artist in that folder.
