I don't have my Venue yet...it's supposed to have been made in March and now to be made this month...when I test drove a dealer Venue I took along an USB that I put some music on to see if it would play on the system and it did so I've now got a 128GB USB and have put almost enough music on it to fill it and I'm hoping it all works...I've downloaded the music from my laptop to the USB and use "wave" format...I wish the manufactures wouldn't have discontinued the CD player...I have tons of CD's and as well over the years I've transferred music from my LP's to my PC and used wave format and much of that I put on CD's...I've got well over 300 LP's and have been transferring them to my PC and then to CD's over time to play in my cars and I have one hell of a lot of CD's...I'm the kind of person that only wants to listen to mostly my music when I want to and using CD's did that for me and there's no way I'm going to fill my iphone with my music I'll use a USB drive...I'm 75 and I don't live on an iphone and the only reason I have one instead of just a plain cell phone is because my kids only text and now texting seems to be the preferred form of communication 🙄😏🤣.I have an issue with certain .mp3 songs not playing on the car's music player.
Some .mp3 songs are working fine, but some new ones are not.
My PC and phone recognize them and plays them perfectly.
The car's music player recognizes them and even reads the names on the screen but does not play them and skips.
It would read "Race Against the Machine" for like 1 second, then skips to a song that is playable.
I tried to format my usb flash drive to FAT32, and it did not solve the problem.
not sure if this helps you or not and if the USB drive doesn't work for me there are CD players that I can buy for the cars that we have now and plug into the USB's and these players do the converting formats that today's systems want to see.
