I'm using my I-pod with no problems with audio or controls. The album art(if installed) pops up with song title and album name.
This is my biggest gripe about the play-from-USB feature set. I want an arbitrary subfolder depth in the system so that I can properly organize my music accordingly.USB stick- sounds great but you can't organize the music folders at all, makes finding the music you want to play a nightmare when driving down the road (esp in traffic and esp with a decent sized library)
I also use a 32GB drive. This solution + DriveSort is probably what I'll end up using for a while. My worry about DriveSort is that I think it'll ultimately wear down the life of the USB stick.I still have lots of room on my drive. I created a temp folder and loaded it with 510 of my favorite songs by copying them (NOT moving them-- right-click, drag-n-drop, and select "copy") from their respective folders, and then divided that folder alternately into "Playlist1" and "Playlist2" (for example, for the four AC/DC songs in my temp folder, two go to playlist1 and two to playlist2). Then I can select either playlist folder and "play random within folder" for a shuffle experience.
