The trash can the remaining lot went in. Smile | :)

I'm not the one who got rid of them, unfortunately. I would still have found a use for them, such as bootable Windows/Linux ISOs. Instead a few years later I purchased about a dozen of those just for that purpose.

So I went on vacation in my new car, with 2000+ sound files in a nice structured file tree, discovering that when I plugged in the USB stick, it would start playing track 1, then track 2, ... the entire file tre rolled out as one flat set of sound files


Are your MP3s properly tagged? Based on my experience, most players are rather useless if you just give them unidentified MP3 files, even if arranged in a good folder structure. But if your radio manufacturer has any sense, it should be able to organize by artist or album name.

I use MP3Tag to manually tag things. MusicBrainz Picard (weirdest name ever) can help automate the process, but expect weird results.

Use the lowest common denominator when tagging (ID3v1/2/x; ignore APE and other newer formats). Otherwise even though you might think something's tagged, it might be unsupported by simpler players.

[Edit]


I bought myself a new car, and didn't think much of the radio - the cheapest model would be good enough. No CD player


BTW, don't think of lack of a CD player as necessarily being cheap. My dad's got the top-end so-called infotainment system (god I hate that word) in his $56K Pacifica, and there's no CD player. Consider them being phased out...
