View Full Version : Burning a MP3 CD

05-28-2007, 07:50 AM
Hey everyone, I have been burning MP3 cd's using Windows Media Player 11 and it plays fine in my xB2, however it places all of the music into artist folders

Three Days Grace
One X
family System
the Red.mp3

Now, I want to have all of the mp3's in the root of the CD, so that they are randomized, since I can't figure out how to randomize the folders during playback while in the car. Windows Media player won't do that, and when I try to burn the mp3's as a normal data cd my xB's cd player says it can't find any media on the disc.
"No music found" is what I get.

Is there any special way I need to burn the mp3 cd to get the car to find the music? Any ISO or Joliet settings I need to adjust?

I'm I missing the randomize feature on the basic headunit? I hate not having it.

Thanks for any info!

Well, I use Nero to burn my mp3 discs, I assume you can do it just fine using Windows also. Just make sure you close the disc after burning and it is a single sessions disc. The factory unit will not recognize multiple sessions.

Those are the only options I selected when burning my data discs using nero and all have worked great in my SNS

yea, the problem turned out to be my Vista. It will not close discs properly for me.

try holding the random button down for a few seconds until it beeps, i can't guarantee that's how it will work, but knowing toyota radios, that's probably it.

give it a try adn let us know if that will allow you to do random through all folders.
