Hi

Hi
I have just purchased a cactus and must say I am delighted with the car. However I am having a big problem with playing the USB stick on the stereo system. After reading some comments on the forum I formatted the USB to FAT 16 and then transferred about 10 cd's to it. Before I did this it would play at all . I have set it to play random tracks from the 10 cd's but it only plays the first cd in random order. The other cd's are all listed but won't play. Has any one any suggestions?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Copy all tracks into the root folder. Do not copy the source folder. I suspect the system is only playing tracks from the first source folder it finds and will then wait for another folder to be chosen.

You need to download your music to a Fat 32 formated memory stick.

Hi. I had the exact same problem. For the life of me I couldn't work out why it wasn't working. I tried reformatting the USB stick (it was a toshiba) but nothing worked. Anyways I resorted to using my S8 and streaming via bluetooth. To cut a long story short I ended up getting a sandisk 32gb usb drive on Amazons black friday (for playing media on tv). I thought 'what if' and tried putting music files on it and then plugging it into the cars USB. It worked straight away. I find the sound quality is so much better playing from usb as opposed to bluetooth.

It's so much easier to use a cable or Bluetooth when you listen to music or radio. I use Spotify and TuneIn internet radio (apps for your phone). Particularly with Bluetooth, there's "plug and play" every time you get into the car and it works every time without any problems in Cactus :)

I have to disagree. I have a galaxy s8 so a new phone and what you'd think would be fairly decent Bluetooth. If my phone's in my jeans pocket then the Bluetooth audio streaming is either jumpy or the phone disconnects completely. That's why I had to resort to putting my phone in the arm rest which is no night.

OK. I only have my own experience as the basis for my claim. I have an iPhone SE and my son who sometimes connects to the radio has an iPhone 5S.
