Friends - whats a good way to organize music files on the USB Drive.
I have folders and mp3 music in the folders

But i find it difficult to jump songs on the car. When i have to jump folders , i have to tap on the Folder in the menu and scroll through several folders.
When a song i playing in a folder , i have to click the LIST option in the screen , then use the dial is move through the list and select another song.

I have mine organized by year. Basically on Jan 1st of each new year I make a folder called MP3 - 2019 etc.. then dump everything I find this year into that folder.

So I just scroll thru whichever year and then songs.

I have mine sorted in folders by artist, then by album. I usually prefer to listen to an album in its entirety, so this way works best for me. It does take a while to scroll through the list of artists, though.

Spotify, Pandora, Google Play are now my USB sticks for music. I remember back in the day when I loaded sticks and cd's with all the music I had and it was such a pain.

Now I just ask my car to play a song or album and in seconds I'm jamming to my tunes,

I've been wondering if there is a way to create playlists on the USB drive that the HU will read.

I have folders like Rock / Classic / Folk / Country etc ... i can change from one folder to another at the start of journey and then change songs in that folder while driving using the dial .

However if i start driving in a "Classic" mood , and suddenly feel like listening to Rock music , I have to wait for a red light for me to flip the folder . Bit of a pain .

Other option i was thinking on was Rename all files with prefixing ROCK_ or COUNTRY_ etc in front of them , and then have just no folders at all on the drive. That will give me the dial to flip through hundreds of songs , possibly sorted per Genres.
