It seesm that the copy speed from the front USB is much quicker then ripping from the CD player.
Mashie, you are on the right track in trying to find that subtle difference that files on a CD have that is absent or not transferring properly from ripped tracks.

Just about any ripping software will let you rip into a number of formats (AIFF, AAC, MP3, WAV, etc.). It sounds like you're asking if it's possible to create a disk image of the CD and load that...IOW a bit-for-bit duplicate of the source disc. That is worth a try.

Re: Best practices for loading music on 430n HDD?

Does anyone know what file format the 430n creates when you rip a CD? Just curious if it is a mp3, mp4, wma, aac. Maybe that could put us a step closer.

What I think happened is that it is possible that there is a limit on number of files/folders that can be read from USB drive. For instance it is described in owner's manual that when playing CD containing MP3-s only 255 files are supported and folder depth should be less than 8. You may have hit this or some other limit. Since copying from HD is not described in user's guide it is not officially supported and we can only guess.

Another thought is that even though it seems HD had enough power it could have been barely enough and if that was the case then all kind of problems are possible. To be safe I would recommend powering HD with external power supply from AC socket that you have in your Jeep.

Re: Best practices for loading music on 430n HDD?

Has anyone tried including the cover art as a jpeg file within the album music folder? For instance, on Windows if you include a file called folder.jpg inside a music folder it will show as the cover art with windows media center. wondering if that would work.

Yes - still no luck. The only time I have seen album art in the jeep is when I put a store bought CD into the 430n. Hopefully this will be solved with a future software update!

Gotta admit I have not gone that far. The time it would take me to do that manually or even set up some kind of Automator script or batch process would make feeding CDs into the unit seem more attractive.

Note I said "the time it would take ME." Others may have more chops at setting that up and I would be happy to be schooled.

My current MP3 collection is organized into folder ("artist - album") along with folder.jpg in each folder, as well as ID2v1 and ID3v2 tags. Additionally, album art has been encoded into each file's id3v2 tag and displays correctly on other devices. None of this being present in the data copied to the HDD appears to make a difference - still no album art.

Re: Best practices for loading music on 430n HDD?

The only way to get the album art to show (at least at this point) is to rip the original CD into the radio directly. If the CD is in the Gracenote DB it will show.

Re: Best practices for loading music on 430n HDD?

I am a new member and found this forum doing a google for the 430n cover art problem. I have have my JGC Limited for 2 weeks and love it but the album art glitch is a bug. My first seven albums loaded just fine with the art. Then after that i tried to load cds but they recognized the tracks but the no art or wrong art... The beach boys showed the rush album I loaded three cds before. I am very disappointed. are there any fixes on the horizon?

Re: Best practices for loading music on 430n HDD?

Just adding to the thread and answering the ~6 month old question that was asked in regards to the 430n ripping mp3's from DVDs. Yes it will. As everyone else has stated, USB transfer is the way to go.

Album Art - I was having this issue with my RBZ radio (430) in my 2011 Town & Country

to expand a little bit:

First 8 or 9 CDs I enter -No issue with album art, everything displays correctly.

CDs 10-15 (give or take) - No album art at all (shows the music note)

CDs 16 and above - Shows album art for the CDs in range 10-15. Meaning, 16th CD put in shows the album art for CD #10. 17th CD shows the album art for CD 11.

I had done some searching over the past week or so, cause this is a very annoying issue to me.

Not sure if you already got your issue resolved or not, but there is an update disk for the RHB (430N), for Sirius Travel Link that also fixes the album art issue.

This apparently also works for the RBZ radio (both 430 radios are affected), but Chrysler will only officially provide the disk to those with RHB radios as that is what the disc indicates.

The DVD is called "TravelLink Update" and this same DVD also has the fix for the gracenotes cd cover recognition error. This was confirmed with the radio manufacturer (Mitsubishi America) by a user on a dodge challenger forum, so ask the dealer to install it (if you have an RHB). The update disc part number is 68141133AA. This will update the radio from 20.02.01 to 23.04.41. Both RHB and RBZ share the same radio version/functionality. RHB just adds all the nav stuff.

If you have an RBZ, you'll either have to purchase the disc from Chrysler/Jeep dealers ($40 from what i was told), or burn it with the rip provided on mofv.com forums.

The artwork issue sounds insignificant, but it is super annoying to me.

If you have an RHB radio, you should get the disk sent to you for free (if you haven't already). You should get the update anyway for Sirius TravelLink.

This did resolve the cover art issue for me (as far as it being incorrect when CD is loaded).

I haven't had any luck with album art being recognized on mp3s, even with this update.

I plugged the drive in and instantly it started playing the mp3's - went into myfiles and selected all to copy to HDD and away it goes! Very good transfer rate, I had 7GB to transfer and it was less than 15min total. Not too bad at all! FAR faster than the HDD/Nav system I had in my 2010 VW GTI
Does this mean that the external HDD can just be plugged in via USB and there is no need to copy the files onto the units HDD for it to play?
