If you’re playing an MP3 disc in your car’s radio, then you have two choices for navigating the files. You can opt for track or folder structure. Here’s a bit more about both:

Track Structure

  • This option puts everything on the same level, all tracks are accessible and there are no folders. Tracks are numbered by the system (maximum of 255 tracks).

Folder Structure

  • Folder structure lets you navigate into individual folders and subfolders. Tracks will be numbered per folder (up to 255). There is only one level of folders available.
