    Default Megane rs280

    Hey guys,

    Advertisement


    So i had an embarressingly slow accident in my Megane GT220 a couple of months ago, so much so that it was written off with $18.5k mechanical damage!!
    So with this i was able to take advantage of a demo model RS280 for an insane $36k!!!
    I'm trying to find out some info on the use of SD cards in the sound system.
    I have spoken to two dealerships, 1 service department, Renault head office of which i couldnt get past the girl at reception having to relay my question to the technical department of which i was told to simply "book it in", this would obviously take at least half of my day with the speed they work for an issue that can be solved over the phone in no more than 5 minutes...
    So the issue i have is that i get an error message when i insert the sd card, i have used a usb stick with the exact same files and have no issue with that...
    What i am trying to find out is whether the sd card needs to be formatted to a specific format or if there is a limit to the size of the sd card that can be used (currently have a 2tb portable hdd plugged in).
    If there are any specialist websites or manuals that you know of that'd be great too!

    Cheers
    Sebastian

    I'd suggest that the experience you had with the USB stick would be informing you that it is, in fact the system you should be using for MP3. As USB sticks now run as high as 512Gb that should probably allow you to enjoy all your favourite files in your RS.

    From my experience if you are using the SD card for music such as MP3 files you need to format the SD card for FAT32. Then load on your MP3 files and you should be good to go.

    It is probably formatted to NTFS.

    i had a look at the format and it was already in a "exFAT' type of format but not "FAT32" and i dont have the option to choose the "32" type of formatting?

    When I put a SD card into my laptop I get the following options:

    NTFS
    FAT32
    exFAT

    Maybe if you try to re-format the card and then reload your files and try again.

    I don't have a modern Renault head unit (my latest model car here is 2002) but I do have what is essentially a modern aftermarket CD stacker that takes USB, SD card & straight audio from a phone. For both USB and SD card I use FAT32 formatting.
