    general music ideas

    Not sure if I'm the only one who thinks this way, but a couple ideas I thought of. If anything, maybe they can be turned on/off in the settings.

    1. Having more than 1 music path. I use jump drives/external drives a lot, and always copying music to the internal drive of my carpc takes time/HD space that I'd rather avoid. Anything besides the first path could be periodically checked to see if it exists and if it does load the artists/albums normally (Maybe a check for usb plug-n-play type stuff).

    2. Music sorting. I noticed that the songs inside the albums folders are arranged alphabetically. To myself, it makes sense if the songs were arranged in the track orders.

    Great job so far though!

    Press the source button...then click the external drive.

    Maybe my one jump drive I've been using lately is causing the issues. It brings up an extra 2 drives (one cd and one removable). The source button only lists the cd drive part, not the removable one.

    Thanks on the sorting option

    Thats very strange...what type of drive is it that it shows as both a CD drive and a removable drive? Is that two different drive letters for the same drive too?

    The release timetable is kept internal for devs only.... but you can see our daily progress on our website and I will say that releases happen quarterly (last one in oct).

    any drive with U3 software does this-- the first partition acts as normal rewritable flash partition, the second partition displays as a cd- drive and has the U3 software on it-- it is supposed to make file tranfers easier, but i always found it a PITA

    Forgot bout U3...that uses a big software hack to simulate 2 drives out of 1 device...but i'll see if any of the devs have one to play with so we can make sure the bugs been fixed already
