Exclamation HDD music short

Welcome and Hello,

New Overland is importing music fine but the tracks are being cut short at the end - all of them... Thoughts?

Re: HDD music short

My June built Limited does that also. I thought I had done something wrong when I downloaded the music. It does not happen on all music only a few.

Re: HDD music short

My Overland is a Feb 2011 build with the 730N RHR and has not cut short any songs that I ripped from a CD to Windows Media Player. It has cut short a few (not all) songs that were down loaded from Amazon.com to Windows Media Player. All songs were saved to the 730N by USB. I have deleted and re-saved the songs that were being cut short on the 730N and the same songs continue to be cut short. The songs are being cut short about 10 to 15 seconds.

Re: HDD music short

I have a troubleshooting question for you guys:

Do the same files cut short when played directly from the USB thumb drives you are using to transfer them to the HDD? Do a test and report back, if you have time.

Re: HDD music short

Just did a test. The same songs that cut short on the Jeep HDD do not cut short when played directly from the USB on the Jeep HDD or when played on Windows Media Player. I tested 2 USB's and got the same result. I also again deleted the songs and saved them again and they still cut short. I used both the USB on the front of the 730N and in the console and it made no difference. I always use the USB in the console because some people have had the plastic USB tab break that is located on the front of the 730N.

Re: HDD music short

Does the ID3 tag indicate length (start/stop time)? If so, does it match up with the actual length/time of the track?

Interesting that HDD playback is cutting the playback short - it is probably a bug in the scheduler that manages the playlist/queue. Or, if it's a buggy rights protection thing, apparently it doesn't apply to device playback.

Well, I went and found a TINY 16GB USB flash drive and I keep it in the front USB port, and that's where my music plays from. It works perfectly, avoids the HDD playback issues, and I can pop it out and take it inside to change/add/etc. very easily. Personally, I never saw the point of transferring music to the HDD when you can just play it off of a portable USB drive in the front port. When doing this, the radio honors the folder structure so it is easy to organize, etc. It looks cool too, and those who know what a thumb drive is are always very impressed that one lives in my radio. Before you come up with visions of a huge USB drive sticking out of the dash, look at the size below (link, second image). It's barely larger than the USB plug itself, so it doesn't really stick out at all.

The only downside is lack of playlists, perhaps - I need to experiment with that. I really don't use playlists, though, so that wouldn't bother me anyway. That doesn't solve your problem directly, but it's another option to consider. It is definitley easier to manage your vehicle music that way. You could just hide it in the center console port if you don't want to use the front panel port. This solution works MUCH better than HDD transfer and iPods, imo. It's dope, really.

Re: HDD music short

It might be the HDD trying to play the songs in a "gapless" mode (having a smooth transition between songs with no gaps or silence).

The unit cutting tracks short doesn't really matter on most music I listen to, but it drives me crazy if I try to listen to an audio book or the economist where the article goes right up the end of the track. If that usb drive works well, it's only around $18 at amazon/bestbuy right now for the 16gb. Maybe I'll just give that a shot too and stop using the HDD altogether. Thanks! The USB port on the front of the unit has always worked well for me. Anyone else find the one in the armrest a little flakey?

Re: HDD music short

I've been copying CD's to my hard-drive, at the rate of two per day.
On my way to and from work. Its effortless and I can listen to satellite or FM during the process.
It works fine, except that about 1 in 5 cd's isn't recognized by gracenotes, and I have to enter in the album name, artist and song title manually which can be a PITA.
