All,

I have loaded a bunch of songs from my MAC I-Tunes on to an SD card and plugged it in to my MMI. Unfortunately the MMI won't read all of the songs on the SD card (nor the play list that I exported). Careful analysis has revealed that the songs the MMI can read are .mp4a format and the ones it can't are mp4p format.

Now all of these songs were purchased via the I-Tunes store so I don't understand why there are different formats to start off with. Is there a way of either converting the .mp4p songs to .mp4a (or mp3) or is there a way of exporting them as mp4a or mp3 to the SD card. I can of course export to a CD as mp3 and then rip them back, but that seems a bit daft.

Any thoughts ?

Cheers

I assume you mean M4P. Apple uses M4Px (where x denotes type of DRM) which is a protected file mode for it's downloads.

Just google M4P to MP3 converter. There are many freebies and some you have to purchase. The choice is yours. It just depends on how many files you have and the time you want to spend converting them.

j2910,

You are correct the files that work are .m4a, the ones that don't work are m4p.

I'll have a hunt for a suitable converter for a MAC.

Squirrel,
You can convert your music to MP3 in itunes.

It saves the song as a file separate MP3 file, then just drag it over to you SD card...

Sorry i cant remember exactly how i set it up in my itunes, but just google conversion to MP3 in itunes, and you should find how to do it...

Evan.

Hello everybody,

I have been trying to get the playlists working on my Concert radio (with a SDHC card) for a while when I bought the car -unsuccessfully. Now I read on the forum that couple of users are using playlists without problems. Can anyone please post a *working* playlist file on this forum? It would be nice to see the structure of the file and the way the music files are referenced (directory references, etc.). Thanks!

Regards,
