Hi, fogboundturtle -
Using a thumb drive is great, you can buy one for a couple bucks and leave it in your car permanently! Just be sure it's formatted to FAT 32 and not password-protected.
While you're answering questions, I thought I would ask one. Many times when I start my car, even after having just turned it off to run into a store, SYNC suddenly doesnt recognize my Ipod that's plugged in, even though it might have been just working. I try to unlug everything and re-connect, and sometimes it works, but mostly it doesn't. Is this a known issue? Do I need an update?
