Firstly many thanks for the replies…
I may have been a bit short with my reply as well Tapeworm so I apologise.I get frustrated when seemingly easy things don’t work etc.
Anyway,back to the problem…
Firstly Ed’s points…I can’t seem to find any info about my car or home stereo and whether they only support upto a certain size of flash drive and I can only assume that they both are able to play FAT32/FAT16.
I didn’t format the blade before I used it,just bunged it in and started putting music onto it.
Now Tapeworms’s…When I began to use WMP and/or dBpoweramp I made sure that I had them both recording/ripping in the .mp3 format as I thought that would give me a better sound quality but perhaps a more/higher bit rate(or whatever it’s called).
I may have found the answer though thanks to you guys…I borrowed my son’s memory stick and transferred the music which wasn’t being played from my cruzer blade to his and lo and behold the music on his memory stick plays on my car and home stereo.
From that I can only assume that both my car and home stereo can only play upto a certain amount.Another quite major telling point is when I plugged my cruzer blade into my home stereo and checked what was on there it stated that there were 75 folders/albums and a total of 996 minutes of songs…perhaps a maximum of a 1000 minutes is all my poor stereo can handle!! and possibly the one in my car as well.
That leaves me with the notion that I can only buy about 8gb memory sticks/blades in future as it’s a waste of money/space forking out for a 32gb or 16 when I’m not able to fully use it…or is it?
Thanks again for your help,Gary.
