I am now being driven crazy by my system. I’ve bought the little ingrate a USB3 stick (keeping within the recommended size), carefully loaded it with M4A files and this morning, after happily playing the stick for about 20 minutes, I got Radio 2 for no apparent reason. When I got to the next set of red traffic lights I went into the media player and pressed USB1 and absolutely nothing - still on Radio 2 and refusing point blank to play the stick. The moment my husband gets in the car he’s as good as gold - the modicum of good behaviour and plays the stick without incident. Might need to make a phone call to the dealer before I have no hair left.

Hi I'm a newbie and waiting on my pending Landmark Edition. Can someone tell me the list of files it accepts as I'm sure I've read it doesn't support Flac which is a right bugger as all mine are in that format on my usb. Thanks....

Excellent thank you. The flac is issue I read must of of been an older system or software. Hopefully the playback issues you guys are having are resolved soon.

FLAC works fine - all my music is FLAC and ICTpro has never had an issue playing it (if you've got the Meridian audio, it deserves FLAC files - feeding it crap like MP3 doesn't do it justice).

Yep it will have the meridian audio and agree that it definitely needs lossless audio.

So I'd better start re-ripping my CD collection to Flac, then :lol:

The Insipid is happy enough with high-bitrate mp3s, but it won't play anything lossless, other than CDs themselves.
Waiting to retire, so I can buy a Portfolio 250, with all the toys I can sneak past SWMBO :lol:

My husband drove my car yesterday and has given me a suggestion, which I am going to try. When you get into the car press the Start/Stop without starting and do things like get settled, put on your seatbelt, etc. Only after this put your foot on the brake (or clutch if you have a manual) and start. He promises me this works like a charm, as it gives the car a chance to run its numerous checks. Here’s hoping he’s right, as the USB stick worked first time for him.

I have finally cracked it. I had transferred music from one of our very old CDs and happened to notice it was a track from this particular CD that caused the system to freeze on both USB2 and 3 sticks. I have taken these tracks off and now leave my data switched on permanently (without automatic updates for music enabled) and so far so good with the USB2 stick - still no success with the USB stick, so that will be staying out of the car.
