    Standard iCartech Aurora 2 USB and MP3 tips

    After getting my Aurora2 yesterday, I was extremely disappointed with USB read speed.
    It took about 2 minutes to read 10Gbytes worth of mp3 files, and it did that every time the radio was rebooted... also, mp3 tags were truncated, both for artist and albumname.

    Luckily I managed to solve most of my problems and I want to share some of the solutions with you ;-)

    Most of my problems were probably due to the fact that I use Mac/Linux most of the time rather than Windows.

    USB speed problems solutions:
    - make sure your USB stick or SD card has been reformatted on windows, using normal format (not quick), using the MAC to format FAT32 somehow produces different results
    - use something like OptimUSB to remove any hidden MAC meta files (e.g. .Trashes ,..) EVERY TIME you mount the flash drive on a MAC!
    - in the same vein: remove any unnecessary directory structure and directories from the flash drive; the more directories you have, the slower the aurora2 will read it (Aurora will show directories, but only in a one level structure)
    - the aurora shows the directories in file creation order, not in alphabetical order. To get it to display alphabetically, reformat the flash drive and then recopy all folders sequentually onto it

    With above fixes, my USB flash drive reads now in about 20s.

    MP3 truncated tag issue:
    the language encoding in my mp3 files id3v2 tags was set to Unicode UTF-8
    when I changed this to Western (non Unicode) language coding, the Aurora displayed the tags correctly

    Yesterday, I was about to toss my new car radio into the trash, but with above fixes it has become the radio I was looking for ;-)

    Standard


    A small addition: I've currently managed to get my mp3 files read in 10s... the only way to do this is to format the flash drive on windows and copy the files on a windows system. I haven't tested with linux but it seems that Aurora really doesn't like the MacOSX FAT file system implementation...
