2006 VUE 3.5L
2008 AURA XE
Default 2008 Aura Radio support MP3 Playback

Does the 2008 Aura with XM and 1-CD support MP3 playback as well?

The Reason I ask is I am burning a 4 album set for my mother and I was hoping just to just leave it at MP3s.

Yes, it does support MP3 playback. I have put up to 12 folders on a CD works just fine and shows ID3 header data too.

I use Windows Media Player. It burns by artist and then album inside the artists. Easier to add files too. I prefer it over using Nero or Roxio because the library is there and I can add song by song or artist or album. No plucking through folders.

Better that way if you ask me rather then having the radio sort the tags itself.

Put your MP3's on a disk. Put disk in the radio.

You should be able to just drop them on a disk and that's it. On some burning software you need to "finalize the disk" before it will be readable on other devices..

Default Re: 2008 Aura Radio support MP3 Playback

there are lots of variables that can cause the disc to not be read. my suggestion would be, buy a bunch of cd-r and cd+r and keep trying until it works, changing only one burning option between burns. do it that way since cd-r's are cheap as dirt these days anyways. once you find the burn method that works, keep everything that way from then on. every aura with a cd player should read mp3's

i found a way for the 6 disc in dash unit to read WMA's, smaller than MP3s in terms of file size, which means you can fit roughly 200-220 songs on a single 700MB cd-r, rather than the typical 125-150 mp3's

How did you get it to read WMA's?

The 6-disc doesn't read WMA's? Thats weird. THe single does. I just use WMP11 to make my discs. and probably 90% of what I have is wma.

Could be a dirty burner lens, or the burner itself. Caused some of mine not to play. So I always use the Dell burner and not the extra Lite-on that I bought.

Really? I guess I'll have to wait and see what the trick is for the 6-disc.
