Funny, I was able to do it correctly in MP3 format but not in AIFF format, and of course I don't remember, but I don't think I did anything different from the other.

I think it has a lot to do with how you encode them into MP3 format, but best I can tell, you won't get anything of value on the MFD, but should be able to get song title and artist on the Head unit. I do have one tip that worked for me, do NOT use subfolders, just copy all the MP3's you want straight onto the disc. Don't try to organize them in folders because for what ever reason that didn't work out so well for me, if I remember correctly the stereo would not display crap except like "folder 1, title 001" or some bs like that.

Hope that helps.

If I remember correctly I had too many songs in too many folders. It might be okay to have a few folders with many songs in each folder, but I recommend having as few folders as neccessary.

when i do it i burn it with no folders at all. just one track after another. it still says track 001 or whatever but below it, there is the song title and album. i think the folders screws it up
