Has anyone used higher capacity SD cards? I'm looking at 32Gb cards (SDHC) or 64Gb (SDXC).

I think Lexmark makes some of the best ones on the market, should be able to find them at photography stores if some more mainstream store like best buy doesn't already have them.

I think 32s are already okay, and I would think 64s too, but haven't tried either...

I do have a 32. It is the maximum size supported according to the manual. One think to consider is the larger the card the more time it takes to load. Mine takes about 30sec. To load.

Thanks. I had not thought about the time it takes to load.
Can you put playlist files on the SD card?

Haven't try playlist on the Q3, but my wife's Tiguan doesn't recognize them. So my guess is not.

That too, timing is a concern, the other concern is if the card crashes, at least with what you have to put on them split onto multiple cards you don't have that issue as much.

I finally figured out the play lists ..

I built my playlists from my iTunes library (File > Library > Export Playlist)
I then edited the resulting M3U file using textwrangler.

Here are the key changes I made were:
1. remove the text "EXTM3U" from the first line
2. change the file path to be referenced from the root of the SD card. So instead of "/Users/doug/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media/Music/P.D. James/Private Patient/" becomes just "P.D. James/Private Patient/"
3. If you are using Mac OSX or Linux, change the "/" to "\"
4. Save the file in Windows format (which uses CRLF as opposed to CR for the end of line).
5. Save the playlist to the root of the SD card, it will not work in a sub-directory.

I saved the mp3 files in subdirectories in the layout of /Author/Book/track.mp3

Example:

#
#EXTINF :11,Intro A - P.D. James
P.D. James\Private Patient\1-01 Intro A.mp3
#EXTINF :16,Intro B - P.D. James
P.D. James\Private Patient\1-02 Intro B.mp3
#EXTINF :32,Authors Note - P.D. James
P.D. James\Private Patient\1-03 Authors Note.mp3
#EXTINF :200,Book One - Chapter 1a - P.D. James
P.D. James\Private Patient\1-04 Book One - Chapter 1a.mp3

sd card and play lists

Hi
I have only recently purchased an Audi Q3, 2017 and am trying to figure out how to use the playlist on my sd card which has mp3 music and the MU3 playlist imported on it. All the metadata is there so that the song info and album cover is displayed but I cannot get the playlists to appear as they are in itunes.
As for you solution, I can work with it but some questions - .
Line 1 is straightfoward
Line 2 is straighfoward but that would mean renaming like 3000 titles. I assume there is some batch way of doing that?
Line 3. I am using windows so the slash remains as ' / ' ?
Line 4. I don't have a choice of what format to save in, when using Notepad, perhaps a different text/code editor? If I choose 'save as' the only option i have is "all files"
Line 5 This means that i just save the file to the SD card. I shouldn't specify a directory which will then place it in the root. I presume this happens by default unless I actually specify a subdirectory. The songs I have copied onto the sd card also reside in the root directory?

If you get to read this, and happen to reply , then thanks in advance. Your post dates back to 2015 so there may be another way of utilising the playlist but I can't find it on the forum yet. I will have to keep looking and start a new thread otherwise.

Thank you
D

If you are just putting all of the mp3's into the root directory, then I think your playlist file then would look something like this:

#
#EXTINF :11,Intro A - P.D. James
1-01 Intro A.mp3
#EXTINF :16,Intro B - P.D. James
1-02 Intro B.mp3
#EXTINF :32,Authors Note - P.D. James
1-03 Authors Note.mp3
#EXTINF :200,Book One - Chapter 1a - P.D. James
1-04 Book One - Chapter 1a.mp3

So the pathing info and "/" delimiters in line 3 go away.
The reason that I used directories for the differnt content was that I pretty much took my music library from iTunes and copied it to the SD card(s) starting at the Author/Artist level in the directory structure.
