  • Suggestion for USB flash syncing to carputer

    I use my USB flash drive to transfer new music to my car

    Right now my option is just dragging and dropping stuff


    I would like a synchronization method where the music directory on my computer is synchronized with the music directory on my carputer


    Any ideas?

      USB, not wifi
      The dev of that program said he implemented USB flash support for the program in late July but theres yet to be a release since May

        I'm thinking of making some software like this so I will keep you posted if I do.

        It will in the begining be for updating a specific software pacage.

        Basicly it will look at the file that is on you pc (and presumably runing)
        Watch say G:\my.exe and if that file is newer than the one on your pc it will close the my.exe that is runing and copy over the new one and start it up.

        I can expand this to do a whoal directory .

          I think there's software like this in the RR forum.

            Look at this thread on RRInterchange:

            http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/show...ight=usb+flash

            It can update Road Runner, and copy other files etc.

                I am pretty sure it could do any program you wish to update.
                What it does is copy the whole frontend directory from your computer and then compare what it has to what is on the carPC. Any files it has that are newer it will transfer over. So if you keep the latest version of Centrafuse on you home PC then it should work fine for updating it to your car.

                  I would love a program like that but I dont think this one works like that. All the paths seem to be hardcoded for RR






                  Will give your program a try Enforcer

                    I figured out that in the RR thread everyone ditched the initially posted program and went in favor of a batch script
                    I already know about batch scripts and this is my whole problem

                    Batch scripts are too simple
                    I need a method of transferring my music so that the only files transferred are ones that are newer than the last transfer
                    I only have 512mb of space to work with so I cant afford to transfer more files than I have to

                      It will be done sometime in the next generation.

                          Here ya go.
                          Put this in the root of your usb stick.
                          Files in the Data directory.
                          Just edit the values in autorun.bat

                          Any more questions ?
