    Zumo 550 - music

    Hoping someone can help me with my Zumo 550. I've downloaded all my riding music to an SD card and I know it's all on there. However, Zumo is only reading about 75 of the 400 plus songs on there. If I look at the song title list, many are missing yet it will then play those songs in the rotation.

    Very frustrating! Do I need to bag it for a new 660?

    I have a 550, and don't have any issues with viewing the 450+ mp3s on my 16gb SDHC card. But I know that's not much help for you.

    I've found the Zumo forums (http://www.zumoforums.com) to be a good resource for problem solving. In fact, your issue was recently discussed there.

    Does all your music reside in a single folder and is all your music MP3 format?

    Yes, they are all MP3 but not sure on the single folder. I'll check.

    It takes a long time for songs to load on the 550 -- up to 20 minutes for the 800 songs I had on mine. Give it the time and then choose "play all".

    One of the main reasons I went with the 6xx series and dumped the 550's.

    Wow! Just try registering for their forum. What national secrets are they storing there???

    I'm now waiting to be accepted into the fold. Glad I have friends here!

    Pretty sure the Zumo reads your music files from one folder. Open your SD card on your computer and make sure some of your music is not hanging outside the folder.

    My folder is called MP3 but believe you can call it Audio.

    If all the music is in one single folder, it will be very slow to load it all. Works best if the music is in a MP3 folder than broken down into subfolders. Depending on how you are moving/syncing, that may already be happening. It's been a while since I put music on mine 550, but I used Media Monkey. Oh, and there is an absolute limit of 1000 songs on the 550. The 660 and 665 can read more.
