She asked me why a song on the SD card showed twice and played twice. I said "what are you talking about?" She showed me. Sure enough. We have 6000+ songs on the 32 GB SDHC card and for songs it now shows as 12,000+. Everyone shows twice.

So, I figured the USB thumb drive can't be doing that - and it wasn't. I shows the same 6000+ songs as 18,000+ and everyone is listed 3 times. If you play an album you get each song played not twice but 3 times consecutively.

Anyone else encountered this problem?
Back when '14 GC first came out, or after one of the updates, this was not all that unusual. It didn't happen to me so I don't recall the exact fix, but it was a do it yourself solution.

Re: SD Card for Cherokee

Hey @grandriver125, How's it going?

Others have reported the same phenomenon. Not absolutely sure what causes this loaves and fishes feature.

However, I talked with the folks at Uconnect about their recommendations for SD card and this is what they said >> SD Card Recommendations from Uconnect - 2014 - 2015 Jeep Cherokee Forums.

I'd pay particular attention to the directory structure recommendation: No more than 8 folders in root & No more than 255 songs per folder. The Uconnect head unit has limited memory and too many files in the root directory or too many files in a single folder might blow its mind. Hope this helps.

Re: SD Card for Cherokee

Thanks. Tons of info on these occurrences. Really surprising the amount of time being burned up by people. I'm going to simply pull the card and USB drive and rename them and see what happens. Looks like some pretty poor software development for this infotainment system.

Re: SD Card for Cherokee

Changing the name and locking didn't work. I erased the SDHC card and reformatted, loaded 6617 songs, locked it and it now works properly - but slow startup that annoys "she who must be obeyed."

I'm now in the process of doing the same thing with the USB drive and hopefully it will work (no lock though). It starts up a lot faster and that will keep SWMBO happy and off my back.

Re: SD Card for Cherokee

I just bought 2 Sony SDXC UHS-1 70 MB/s, Class 10, 128BG SD cards. They were initially formatted in ex-FAT and weren't recognized by the Model RA4 radio.

I reformatted one of them in NTFS, added 202 albums/folders (over 2000 tracks @ 26GB). Everything seems to be working fine. Album art is showing up for the albums I've played so far.

It does not seem to be rebuilding the albums list after turning the vehicle off and opening the door, so that's a plus. I know I've seen some complaints that the list repopulates each time. I guess I'll see if this behaves differently over time or after I change to Sirius and back.

I tag/name all of my "Jeep Music" albums as "band name-album name" since I searched by album on my last 2 radios (RER & RHR I think), so I kept them the same. Plus at 200+ albums, I can't always remember the band just by album name.

The only slight difference is that the older radios allowed an ABC search by the first 2 (or more) letters. The current Model RA4 jumps right in with the first letter. Though it looks like I can use the regular "search" function for more than one letter.

In short, so far so good.

Glad to hear the 128 GB SD cards worked formatted as NTFS.

Over the past 1 1/2 years, the only time Uconnect has rebuilt the index is when I change the content on the SD card.

<<I tag/name all of my "Jeep Music" albums as "band name-album name" since I searched by album on my last 2 radios (RER & RHR I think), so I kept them the same. Plus at 200+ albums, I can't always remember the band just by album name.>>

Thanks for the tip. I'm going to reorganize my tags in a similar way. I was a noob the first time organizing music on the SD card. Now after using it for a while I have a better appreciation for search arguments such as album name and genre. Especially when using VR.

Re: SD Card for Cherokee

I use Tag&Rename for all things .mp3.

You can edit songs individually, or by album. I use the multi-tag option for changing the album name to band name-album name.
