MP3s with base stereo?

I have the base model stereo in my 2011 Mustang. Can I burn a data disc of MP3s with different folders, one folder for each artist, and play it in my Mustang's CD player? Will it recognize the folders?

Thanks!

I believe it will play mp3 files, don't know if it will recognize the folders.

Owners manual should say.

you are combining 2 different file types

in order to use it with folders, you would have to burn whats known as a "Data" CD. with this you can put anything on the cd that will fit within the *usually* ~700mb limit of the card. whether its pictures, mp3 files, video clips, what ever. you can put strickly mp3 files on here, but i don't think it will read a data type cd. whether it is sync or base.

the other way, which is how music is usually burned onto cds, is by burning it with just the music files on it, lasting within the given *usually* 80min limit, and i'm almost certain the mustang will read these whether is has sync or not.

i know this doesn't really answer your question, i mainly just wanted to clarify. i say check the manual

Clarification appreciated, but you actually muddied up the water. Many MP3 software burning packages refer to an MP3 formatted disc as a "data disc". The final burn is only MP3 files. Not jpegs, gifs, bitmaps, x.doc or waht have you. There is not a "card" in play here. The OP wants to know about the capabilities of the CD player. It obviously uses discs. OP I can't speak to the system that's in the Mustang, but I used to have a 2010 Super Duty that had the base stereo. It played CD-R MP3 discs that were folderized. I doubt that the Mustang would go backwards from that capability.

Thanks!
Yes, it recognizes the folders and lets you jump between them.

I don't know how it handles folders within folders because I don't do that.
