Question
Whats the maximum amount of songs/albums that can be stored on the SD CARD?
Have recently purchased this and very pleased but have a question. The first couple of albums i stuck on an SD Card worked fine but the rest of them are not being found. Do you know at all if there is a limit on the amount that can be stored or possibly if there is a limit to the size of the SD CARD that can be used. Many thanks

The SD card has to be formatted in FAT or FAT32, which can only store so many files. I found that the easiest way was to store the albums within folders and you can navigate using the AMS button and the volume control. I have about 300 songs stored on each card and it seems to work fine with that.
Hope this helps!

Yes the SD card can be left in place and the Radio can be listened to by pressing the 'source' button until the radio / tuner source is shown on screen. The SD card will cease playback and the Radio will be heard.

It could be that the iPods have different software versions on them causing the problem.

To the best of my knowledge there is no upper end to the USB dongle size. I myself use a 32Gb at the moment with no problems. I hope this helps.
