Re: Cactus refuses to play stored music on USB!

It could be that your new music is in a file format the cactus doesn't recognise. That is the case if you can't see the tracks listed when you view on the cactus screen.

Re: Cactus rear speaker upgrade youtube video

Thanks for that. Don't know if I dare do it myself but I might show it to someone who will! I'm definitely keen to see the fronts done if you do it.

Re: Tool kit

Muddles, I have exactly the same in my boot. Huge plastic contraption for holding compressor and towing eye (thanks - I hadn't worked out what that was until you said it!). I agree, plastic contraption looks like it should hold things but there's nothing there. My compressor has two pipes coming off...

If you're copying music files from iTunes as mp3's you need to convert the tags too so you get all the info and artwork for each track.
How do I actually do that ? At the moment I just copy iTunes folders onto USB stick using windows. Each album's folder has a jpg in it which gets copied too.

Re: Album art work

I have used this free software to embed art work into MP3 files ( as well as ordering tracks into the playing sequence that I want ) and according to the website it works with all sorts of audio formats. There seems to be other similar software around also... just look for tag editor http://www.mp3...

Album art work

Does anyone know how to link the album art work so it displays when the album is playing from jukebox or USB ? The jpgs must be there somewhere because they sometimes display in the top left of the music screen. For some reason I have one particular album cover which displays bottom left whatever is...

Re: Sound file formats

Out of interest - I have converted the same album of MPEG4 files to .flac . They are recognised and played by the Cactus. Although I would consider myself a discerning listener, I can't hear any difference on side by side listening to jukebox (.aac) and USB (.flac) files. Massive difference in file ...
