Has anyone successfully managed to make and play a playlist using a USB drive in their car using the RCD-510? If so what did you use and how did you do it?
This has been driving me nuts...
I'm using a 500GB Western Digital portable hard drive connected via USB to play music in my 2010 TDI. According to the manual I should be able to create .m3u, .pls, and .wpl playlists on my computer (it is a Mac v.10.4.11) and save them to the drive to play in the car. I have tried many different programs to create these playlists (including exporting .m3u files onto the drive using iTunes) and have not managed to get them to play. I keep getting an error showing up on the radio when I select the playlist file that says "Unable to locate playlist files..." I would assume this means the radio can't find the song files that are in the playlist.
I manually updated the radio to the newest firmware to see if that would help with no luck. All of my songs play perfectly when I select them manually through the radio. Also, when I play the playlists off the drive using my computer they open fine. Any advice?
