I have dozens of CD's  I'd like to put on a flash drive to play through the USB port. So I went through the process of converting them to mp3 and synching them onto the flash drive only to discover that Sync won't play them because they are protected. I say I'd "like" to transfer them to a flash drive, but not enough to spend $20-30 for the privilege.  Is anyone aware of a truly free DRM removal program for Windows? All the freeware I found on Google was bogus.

Quick question.  Were any of these from iTunes, or did you rip them directly from the CD?  If you did, you can try not using media player to convert them.  Or, make sure you are offline when you rip them.  For some reason, if you're offline they can't get the album/artist data and you can transfer them.  I would try that first.  I use a 1.5TB drive for my music (I have over 2400 CDs).  I found that once you're online they get all assy about it, even though you paid for the rights to listen to the song as long as you don't sell it.

 

Let me know if you find something different!

Have gone through iPod and that works well with it off even. Use steering wheel control over voice modulation. Flash drive is a good idea, wouldn't have to tie up iPod then. I- tunes is pissy these days on things, use to go through Lime Wire for free but the only thing that remains a constant these day's is that everything changes.

Think myself DVD's and CD's will go to the wayside like VCR's. Streaming and alternate methods eliminate the clutter (have lots of clutter). Suppose to of gone to 3" discs awhile back? Wouldn't be surprised to see all movies and music on drives in near future, maybe in my time even? Still watch my VCR's on occasion, players are getting scarce in the stores.

Possibly would be able to use DVD to put tunes on which can hold many more than CD format, a whole bunch. Wife is really good on computers, she can build and repair them so areas like that can usually come up with something. Not me, but certainly know enough how to crash one.

SD or MicroSD cards are the way to go. I've seen them up to 256GB but realistically, a nice 32 GB card will store more than enough music for most folks. The Pioneer head unit I put in my 2012 had a SD slot and works perfectly without any added clutter.

IMO the best long term solution is to pony up for an iPod or smart phone (iPhone or Android), and transfer all your music to that device (via iTunes for Apple devices). Then you can sync the device to the car via Bluetooth or USB and play your music library no problem. Sure, costs more to go this route, but as with everything you get what you pay for.

Those will hold a lot. Have a game camera and get thousands of pictures and they're never filled up before I have to change battery and swap cards.

OK. I do have an iPhone, so I just spent the last few hours importing 510 songs from CD's into iTunes. I try it in my car and Sync lady says "current selection not playable." Do I need to convert them to a different format?

Never mind. I tried it again and it works perfectly. What an amazing improvement in audio quality over Pandora and Slacker! I had been disappointed with the Pioneer speakers I put in my doors but now realize it was because all I ever listened to was streaming music.

O.K., flash drive works beautiful. The few that've done it don't say how though. First all your music has to be in an MP-3 format and put it in folders to install in drive. Next plug the drive into USB port. It won't work until you go to media in the radio menu and match the device to the radio input. It's all done through the radio Sync.

Sounds really good but need a USB Male A to USB Female A about a 1' extension so drive lies flat in bottom of tray. Otherwise it's apt to get damaged when reaching in there for something. Have an iPod also but this stays in the car permanently.

Worked for me and thanks on the ideas....

Nof that I'm getting fan mail on this subject but took my Boss out yesterday and put in a 4" extension for my thumb drive or flash thingie. Noted since the system recognizes the input now all I have to do is press AUX and it's playing.

Understandable why the systems are being upgraded for really loud music but think I'd rather listen to the exhaust note with the volume down. Roads are pretty clear now except for the paving patches, detours and occasional sand traps, no salt. It's like I never put it up for 4 months, no problems what so ever. Went around the block (about 10 miles) and never took over 4K RPM. Have to top off oil but it's still really chilly here and so windy yesterday didn't want to have hood up and get it sprung from a wind gust (up to 40 MPH bursts).

New roof on shed today, probably be here early, get the Boss out and tinker around with it and stay out of the way. Hope I have enough metal left to build a wood pile lean to and use for the roof.

Next time, Rich B.

Come to think on it the stuff like I listen to has to all be redone digitally and a lot of my sources are maybe ??. Would recommend new flash drive also as mine had photos on prior.

I use a 16GB  iPod Nano, works great.  Have all my playlist setup and can chose them from the head unit.  Even automatically resumes playing where i left off on start of the car.

 

I don't care too much about loud music when driving, just a little classic rock and the exhaust is music to my ears.

I can't get Synch to recognize my iPod shuffle player when I plug it into the USB.  Is there a trick or is this player unsupported by Synch?

There are days that my iPod gives me fits working in my car. I know I could not be without it in the car, while the pipes sound great on long road trips like this one I have coming up, having good music is nice
