Thumb Drive USB issue

Is there anyway to have it "remember" there is a thumb drive plugged in.

Eveytime I switch to AUX it goes to the ipod jack, it doesn't see the thumb drive unless I unplug it and plug it back in. Comes up everytime I do that, so it's not the issue others are having with Zune that doesn't come up. It's just a pain to open the center console every time I want to listen to the thumb drive.

hmm for me, when I choose sources, I have AUX and then the next source is the USB (Thumb drive I am using). After AUX it doesn't say USB but is blank because it is loading the song .. it starts right up.

Sweet... That worked, thanks for the help Crowley, I was just expecting some sort of display to come up showing USB so I was being too impatient then cycling from Aux to CD, not waiting for the USB.

Thanks for the help.

Sorry that it was a bit tricky to get that screen up. You can blame me for that!

There should have been a popup screen (just like AM/FM/XM) after you press the Aux button a couple times. The first would be purely for the analog 1/8" aux jack, second for the first aux device (USB drive, Zune, iPod, Bluetooth device, etc). If you had two devices connected (1 USB and 1 Bluetooth), the other device would come up after the first. The next aux button press would take you back to CD to start the cycle all over again.

Racingray, the PDIM was designed to operate with a lot of devices, but unfortunately, not every MP3 player operates quite the same. For the MP3 player to be compatable, it has to support PlaysForSure. Even with that, not all PlaysForSure devices will work. Only ones that support PlayFromDevice will allow the car to play music over the USB cable. Even with them supporting PlayFromDevice, not all of those players will allow DRM'd content to be played over the USB cable. Sorry that I can't be more help, it just really depends on the MP3 player and how it was designed.

I would recommend using a USB thumb drive to play your music. They are really inexpensive these days and you'll get the same experience using that as you would using your MP3 player. Then you can just leave the drive in the car and not have to worry about carrying it with you.

Let me know if I can help with anything else!

Bluetooth Streaming? My cell phone is a Samsung Omnia that I'm currently streaming to a BlackBerry audio gateway then using the AUX in my Aveo. My Camaro should be here in about 2 weeks and I was wondering if I can stream music over the Bluetooth to the car speakers. Thank you for your help.

Yes, you can stream music via bluetooth. How, I don't know, cuz mine isn't here yet, but I know for fact that you can!

Wasn't really helpful, but at least you know it's possible...

What does bluetooth sync have to do with not putting your phone in the console? I don't see how they're related. You can use a USB thumb drive and just leave it in there and do whatever you want. You can also use your phone if you want. The two are completely independent of one another.

When you do this...how will the songs be seperated?..meaning will the thumb drive just have one large list of songs or can it be seperated into artists,albums, or genres for example so your head unit will display this information in that way?

Well it's best to catalog them in directories just for your own sanity but the head unit will use the ID3 tag information to allow you to sort by artist, album, genre, etc. You can also use playlists but they have to be located at the root of the USB drive.

The manual says that the first 10,000 songs are recognized, but with my thumb drive, it doesn't index all the songs. I have several full albums on there but it only recognizes about half of them. It shows the folders but not the songs. Anyone seeing anything similar?

Have you purchases the songs from iTunes or something? What format are they in? The radio can only play MP3 or WMA from a USB drive. Or are you saying in a given album, only half the songs show?

If you have all your mp3 files tagged with the artist/album/genre info, the Camaro should be able to separate your songs into any of those categories from what I understand. The default order that shows up while it's still indexing your files is alphabetical by song title.

They are albums that I have imported using iTunes. For example, to illustrate my problem, if I delete an album that the folder has a letter B, then the album afterward that starts with a C will then be indexed.

Check your rip settings. Make sure that it's ripping to MP3 and not AAC (the default). Other than that... no clue. Maybe it just needs to be re-indexed? I don't have my car or the manual but I would think there's a way to force this. If nothing else, disconnecting the battery for a few minutes to clear the settings should do it.

Well, the files are all mp3. I have taken the thumb drive out and have let it reindex several times with the same effect.

when importing music onto itunes from a cd its automatically converts it to an m4a format, there are several programs you can get to convert this to mp3 just google "m4a to mp3"

You can also convert them from iTunes as well. Or change the setting so it will rip in mp3 format. There are some batch conversion programs, but I don't have one off the top of my head.
