SD Card
 
Have had my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland for a little over a month now and love it so far. I ordered without a a CD player and use the SD Card. A few weeks ago I prepared the SD Card, have about 600 songs on it and it has worked like a charm and really I like the feature. Today, I get in the vehicle, hadn't used the SD card in a few days and turn the radio to that feature and nothing. The system recognized the number of songs but I couldn't tune to a song or play a song and couldn't "browse" for anything on the SD card. No Media Available displayed every now and then on the screen. Needless to say, took out SD Card, put in the SD card, took out SD Card, vehicle off then back on etc. and still nothing. Right now the Jeep has been sitting off in the garage and I am going to go and try again. I put the SD card in my laptop and it played the songs no problems. Any thoughts or another gremlin?

SD Card Now Working
 
Ok...here is an update. It is now working but didn't after I had let it sit and popped the SD back in. I looked at some of the naming convetions of the Albums and Songs. I found that some had copied to the SD Card with "_" underscores. I took those out AND renamed the SD Card. Working beautifully! Who knows if it was the underscore or the rename of the SD card but all seems to be well.

Interesting, I'll be doing the SD card thing this week. So, what do think happened? I would guess that renaming the SD card had it see it as a new device. What if you don't name it at all?

I honestly think it was the underscore in the song name. I think had I not renamed it, removing the underscore would have corrected the issue. Good luck with your SD. I honestly think it is a really cool feature!

Something I and others have done that seems to help. After loading your SD card lock it before using in your Jeep.

Have you guys been just dragging and dropping songs to your sd card or have you been creating folders like jazz,rock..etc and then clicking on those individual folders? If you hit shuffle will it shuffle through all the songs or just one folder at a time??

I use folders. You can shuffle genres and artists by using the VR.

I have over 1200 albums ripped on my home PC / server in FLAC. I have everything from 16bit/44.1kHz CD to 24bit/88.2kHz SACD to 24bit/176.4kHz vinyl rips. I will not listen to compressed audio in any form. I tried converting some 16/44.1 FLAC files to ALAC / m4a but could not get the Jeep to recognize them. I then converted them to Windows Media Audio lossless / wma using Microsoft Expression 4 and they play beautifully. I've been testing using an old 4GB SD card without any issues (once it was formatted in FAT32). I have a 32GB Transcend SDHC card coming from Amazon. Once in hand I may try a few 24bit files to see if the Jeep will play them. I love the convenience of the SD card player.

Has anyone just dumped all their music on an sd card then just hit shuffle for a variety??

I tried that at first, but the mixes got kind of weird. Christmas, classical, rock, and jazz, with some blues and other assorted genres. I now shuffle folders of them individually.

Yes, I need to set up genre folders so to speak. Right now on my ipod, I just have folders of artist, and i need to put them in folders for classic rock, pop, etc. any reason I can't leave the artist in folders inside, say like a classic rock folder?

I took my artists out of their folders and just dropped the albums in the genre folders. I think this may have eliminated a step in searching.
