Does anyone know what file format the music is stored as on the hard drive? I'm sure whatever it is a converter can be found .

Can you burn the songs from iTunes to a DVD or USB instead of a CD?

That's what I was going to try...

I have a bunch of CD's ripped and stored on DVD's as mp3 files but the truck wouldn't read them.
I think the manual says specifically that it won't copy from USB and I couldn't find a "Record" option on the screen for it when I tried anyways.

The record option is on the CD "screen" not on the jukebox "screen", that is what tripped me up initially. I figured it would be on the jukebox screen.

Thanks

Yep, no record button on the USB screen.

I think part of the problem is they are trying to comply with licensing and royalty requirements by limiting the number of ways you can load the jukebox - and failing since you can burn your own music to a CD and load it up. Might as well let you load it from a stick.

I know you can't rip to dvd and I'm pretty sure I've tried DVD and that failed too. I converted my iTunes library to mp3's and then dumped them to a DVD and that worked on my wife's truck. I haven't tried it with the Ford yet, but I bet it would work.
The software I used was dbpoweramp. It is small fee at $38, but worth every penny.

Loading the jukebox is simply too much hassle. I just insert a USB stick with all my music on it and it works just as well... perhaps I am missing something?

Same here. I recorded a couple cd's and it took for....ev...er.

I gave up, bought a 2nd Ford USB cable and a cheap 16gb flash drive and threw it in the glove box.

I suppose if the itunes playlist(s) records faster I may try it again.

Is the USB cable proprietary? Why did you buy a Ford one? My iPod USB plugs in and works fine to control my iPod. If it is just preference, I understand that...just curious is all.

I believe it is to make use of the second USB connection in the glove box. I recall some threads on this...

GZip's response is correct. There's a 2nd port on the Sync module that is empty. I bought the Ford Sync USB cable, ground all the extra plastic off it (both ends) and plugged the flash drive into that, threw it in the glovebox. I still have my USB port on the dash open, just hated having the flash drive plugged into it...kids tend to break things.

This is the one that I bought:

You have to file down one side of it, you'll understand why when you see the cable and the pic in this post:

You can still get a regular USB to mini-B and a female/female USB adapter for under 10 bucks and it will work. No need to get the Ford version.
