Android auto SD card playback nightmare...


Oct 14, 2021
Hello! Hoping someone can help me figure this out once and for all!

Goal: get music files from old iPod library onto SD card inside my Samsung Galaxy s20+, and be able to play that music from Android auto.

-I have already extracted all the files from the old iPod back into my computer.
-last year, I managed to get the files onto the SD card and was able to play them back in the car using jet audio.
-after going back to try to add songs to the library, I found the new songs would play on jetaudio on my phone after drag/dropping files into the sd card in the phone, via USB connection to computer.
-however, the very first time I brought the phone to the car to try it in Android auto, my phone says "Error playing [file]"
-I am now trying to use Musicolet, and I am having the exact same problem.

I really hope someone around here has some answers! Thanks in advance!
