Default Transferring Music VIA USB

I tried transferring my music on a 8GB thumb drive. I have just under 8 GB of music. I plugged it into the truck and it recognized no problem. It started to transfer music but it was taking a really long time. How long does it take to transfer that much music? I had put my truck in the garage and just left the key on accessory and let it transfer. After an hour it was not done. I canceled it, then went to manage the HD and it did not even show any songs have transferred?

Any help? How long should it take?

If you canceled the download I don't think anything would be loaded. I believe it is an all or nothing kind of thing. I downloaded a few photo's and I know it took awhile and that was only in MB's. You are talking about GB's and that it a lot. I would try a smaller file and see how long it takes to download. That would give you a better idea of what to expect for 8 GB.

I dont think you allowed enough time, thats why it didnt show up on your hard drive. 8GB is gonna take a real long time. Start your upload again and walk away for about 1-1/2 to 2hrs.(and it may even take longer than that) Make sure of what type of file you`re trying to up load too, some take ALOT longer depending on what type of file it is.

May suggest trying to only up-load 1GB and see how long THAT takes you, then you can pretty much guess the rest

Are you transferring folders or just individual tracks? I've heard that folks were having problems transferring folders but had good luck with just individual tracks.

Mine took between an hour and an hour & a half. Then I had to do it again because the ID3v2.4 tags weren't being recognized and none of the track info was displayed. Stripping the ID3v2.4 tags and reloading ID3v2.3 tags did the trick there.

Like everyone has stated, it takes a really long time.
