2016 MKX with sync 2.2

 

I naively thought I could connect my iPod classic 160GB, which is pretty loaded, via USB and play stuff.  Instead the system kind of hung up (my iPhone was connected via Bluetooth) - forced me to listen to FM radio until I stopped for gas.

 

I had to reboot the phone a couple of times.  One time I got an error that I couldn't search while it indexed.

 

I posted something on a sync forum but it looks like there are a lot of problems along these lines.  I'm wondering if I just leave it alone and let it try to index if it might work.

 

What does anyone else with a large music collection do?

 

Thanks!

p.s.  My 2012 Acura handles the iPod OK - it does complain that there's too much music on it, though everything seem to work OK

Yes it takes a while to index all the songs for voice recognition.

For fun I decided to rip the top 50 to 100 hits for each year starting back in the mid 30's and running through 2016 (when I quit). Forget how many gigs it filled, but my system took forever it index it all.

I found that the easiest way to get it the play quickly was to pop specific years on a jump drive and play. Keep it small and simple. 200-300 megs.

Have several jump drives that I carry, mostly for specific albums / artists and can change quickly as my tastes change.

For short hops I usually just listen to Sirus MX. Longer drives it's usually a talking book.

160 megs couldn't listen to all of that in a single lifetime anyway. By the time you finish they would all be oldies! lol

Still indexing after 90 minutes of drive time with it connected.

I have an ipod classic 160 gb with 700 songs(maybe that is small compared to yours), but I've never had any problem loading and playing the songs in my MKC. I will be picking up my 2017 MKX in 3 weeks and plan on using in that one too.

I left the iPod in the car for days, hoping that indexing would complete and it would work.  It never really was usable,  very sad about that :( .  I bought a couple of smaller thumb drives (a 32 GB & a 64 GB - Lexar makes some very small an inexpensive USB 3 "jumpdrives" with activity lights) and will put some music on those and see how they work.
