    used that and no luck any other ideas? Can I just burn a data disc? What should the file structure look like?

    thanks in advance!

    It shouldn't matter. When I still had the factory head unit I used both burned audio disks and data disks and they all worked fine. The folder structure I used for data was the same one Windows Media Player uses to store songs. I just drag and drop and go.

    Yes, just burn data disc but with .mp3 files. They are compressed more than .wma files are and more will fit on the disc. The other thing to make sure you do is finalize the disc where no more files can be added later (can't do that anyway unless disc is CDRW. CDR discs are 1 time burn) If you do not finalize it other devices won't be able to read disc. There should be an option for this to be checked or unchecked somewhere before you click burn. Might have to click more at the bottom of the software to see those options depending on your burning software.

    Thanks guys! - Last night I used roxio and burned a "Jukebox" disc and everything worked fine... I wonder why the one I burned on WMP didn't work - Oh well, everything is good today!
