Q: I'm glad I bought the new Golf with my savings. It will become the main means of transportation in the future. The next day I collected the car, I couldn't wait to plug the prepared USB drive into the USB drive interface, but unfortunately it couldn't read all the songs in it. I counted it and only about 1 / 3 of them could be played. These music include MP3, FLAC, m4a and other formats. How to play all my songs with Golf? Do I need to replace my USB drive?
A: From your description, it can be concluded that your USB drive is completely OK, so you don't need to replace it with a new one. The main reason why your car can't recognize and play your music is that your car audio system doesn't support your music format. All you have to do is convert your music into a format it supports, such as MP3.
Volkswagen's Tiguan and Golf are the best-selling models in the world. For Europe's largest auto maker, Volkswagen AG ( VLKAY, VOW. XE), China became its largest sales region last year. However, Volkswagen is facing a more severe test. The rise of major car enterprises in the world is eroding Volkswagen's original market share.
June 27, 2006 Volkswagen has become the first manufacturer to make a USB audio interface module. The USB module allows users to connect USB sticks and portable media players to the vehicle's audio system and listen to music without carrying CDs in the car. The USB audio interface, which supports MP3 and other common digital music formats, allows music to be selected and controlled via the audio interface or the optional multifunction steering wheel. USB sticks and MP3 players are becoming the data carriers of choice for the 18 to 40 age group. What sound system does Volkswagen use? Fender Premium Audio System, exclusively in Volkswagen and Nissan. Can we play all the audio format in from USB flash drive or SD card, such as APE, FLAC, AC3, MKA, OGG, MP2, MPA, AIFF, DTS, AU?
Please don't worry. First, let's know which formats are supported by Volkswagen models.
