Smile SD Card Issue

I just recently discovered that my CC has an SD Card slot to play music off of. I transfered my entire library, around 3000 songs onto the card in Windows. They transfered over fine. When I put the card into my car and browsed the folders, the folders only go up to B. I have a Sandisk 16gb SDHC card. When I did a quick google search someone posted that CC's have problems with HC cards. I wanted to find out for sure if that was the case. Do I need to format the card in a special way or do I need to be a non HC SD card? Thanks

too many folders?

I'm not sure about the card itself (don't know so much about the hardware aspect), but I think I read in the book that there is a limit to the number of folders it will read. How many folder did you have when you got in to the B's?

From what I read in the manual the max # of files (mp3’s) the radio can handle on a SD card is 2048. My guess is at 192 bit rate (CD quality) that would use up around 11 gigs for 2048 songs. So it would be a waste to buy a card larger than 16 gigs. I myself am thinking of going with an 8 gig SanDisk card. If it works out good maybe do 2. One for Him & one for me. Let you know after I try this out.

From a few different tries it looks like most any size SD card will work. Issue is the radio player will only see 500 MP3’s on the SD card. So best to buy some cheap 2gig or 4gig cards and but 500 or less songs on each card.

Limits with SD card in RCD510

I don't think the issue is SD vs SDHC. What I found was that the unit only shows the first 512 items in any directory. I don't know if it can see anything beyond that. So the solution is to keep each directory/folder (including the root folder) to 512 or fewer songs/folders.

I posted a solution using bash & perl scripting here: SD card
