What Kinds of Audio Files Will Work

Planning on making use of the USB slots and the non-NAV SD slot. Anyone know what kinds of audio files work? Mp4s for example? WMA? Or just Mp3s?

Thanks in advance. I pick up my new CX-3 in a few days.

Supported file types appear to be: MP3/WMA/AAC/OGG

As far as I know, MP4 would fall under AAC in the above list.

It also plays WAV files. I have not tried it yet, but I am tempted to load a FLAC file on a thumb drive and see if it works...

I've tried FLAC and unfortunately the files weren't picked up by the system. WAV is a good alternative though, if you have a large flash drive.

Did you create the USB drive on a Mac.

Sounds like your seeing the hidden files and directories the Mac creates when it copies to a drive.

Try using a USB cleaner app and it should all be fine

Sorry to bother you mate, but you seem to know a lot about audio playback and file format, I have a question and may i ask you about it? I downloaded a AU audio file on the internet (about my own job) but it cannot be played on my VLC player and I do not know why. I download this audio converter as you can see (URL REMOVED BY MODERATOR) to convert this AU file. But before the conversion got started, it required me to set some audio parameters, i know i should choose MP3. But how about the bit rate and sample rate, ? What are the meaning of these two kinds of audio parameters? What should i do, do you know?

Hi, not sure about au file formats but if u download audacity for mac or windows it will play it.

Bit and sample rates just set the quality of the audio it will produce.

Most converters will show you what it is already. Setting it too low will just lower quality.

Experiment and see how they sound.
