Thread: My car audio can't 'read' the SD Card in my phone.

    Default My car audio can't 'read' the SD Card in my phone.

    So, my Ford Fiesta has the SYNC system. If I plug in my iPod via USB, SNYC can read and index all the music I have on it, so I can control it from the SYNC menu/controls. However, my iPod only has 30GB, so I thought I'd extend the memory on my Samsung (Galaxy A3 - 2017) phone instead. A new 128GB Micro SD Card comfortably accommodates my collection...But SYNC can't read it! It will only find and index media on the phone's internal memory.

    Of course, I can select and play direct from the phone through the car audio, but only one album at a time.

    Can anyone help? Is it the phone or Ford's SYNC that's limited? Is there a workaround?

    Since you can plug your in iPod and play the files via USB I would think a 128GB USB memory stick would work as well. You can find them for $20-30 (American).
    That's actually how I listen to my collection in the car, which is a Chevy Volt.
