Syncing to Thumb Drive multiple times [#13424]

Post by doney6012 » Wed Dec 13, 2017 7:11 pm

I've started using a Verbatim 16GB thumb drive in my car to play music and it works fine being synced with MMW, however when I sync extra music subsequent times the folders don't appear in alphabetical order through the car stereo. I'm guessing it's a limitation of thumb drives and the way some devices interact with them. I get around this small issue by simply selecting to sync the drive with nothing (so that MMW removes all data) and then resyncing desired playlists. Is there a way for MMW to automatically clear the drive upon each sync and just resync everything from scratch? I realise it's only a small issue and it will make each sync event longer than it would be otherwise, but the end result would be easier browsing of music files in the car. Thanks

No, there isn't.

Some car stereos sort by when a file was written to the drive, thus ignoring folder/filenames.
