View Full Version : MP3 Format query

21-06-2010, 11:40 AM
Does anyone know the format restrictions for MP3 in the 06 VE's?

I have burnt a few MP3 discs that give disc errors's!!.

What is the filename length restrictions?
Will it play WMA?
Does it have issues with ID4 tags?

The user manual is next to useless on these points. Any help is appreciated.

I can tell you that they will not play WMA Files. Mine started with the same problem i.e. Disc errors and now it won’t Load any discs, Holden wont repair it as I've upgraded my sound system, (not happy about that) so it is costing me $400 to get it repaired this week. But these are common faults with these units and Holden are aware of it.

Thx Ian,

I just burnt same disc again, but shortened the names of the long files, and it worked. I think it must be a 55.3 format or something.

I couldn't change the ISO or joliet format within Nero 7 so can't be sure.

GMH wouldn't help me either if it dies as the R8 is +3yo.

If it does die, there is a mob on the Gold Coast that do a fix cost repair, they are doing mine. You can also post your unit into them. A new unit from Holden is around $900 plus installation.
