2011 power wagon is on a distinguished road
Question 2011 power wagon 430 media center question

Hi mopar fans I am still using my 1995 2500 4x4 diesel 175,000 miles on the farm (awesome truck) , that's why I recently bought my 2011 power wagon , this question concerns the 430 media center I have tried to transfer files from a mp3 player (sansa clip) to my 30 gig hard drive in the 430. It seems that the media center will only recognize apple ipods. I don't want to by an ipod just to transfer files to my truck. these mp3 files come from a pc with windows media player. any help on this one?

Hi and a warm Carolina welcome to the best RAM ForumZ on the web. How about using the link in my SIG to jump over to the Red Ram Group and don't forget about posting a few photos of your truck?

Welcome to the forum,
This forum is full of great looking trucks; packed with great mod ideas and there are loads of knowledgeable and experienced people here.

Have you tried putting the files on a USB jump drive? That's how I put mine on the HDD. I also have iPods, and you can't transfer the music from the iPod to the HDD...but you can play the music that's on the iPod. I haven't tried to setup the iPod with share memory, which 'might' work for transferring the files, but any file in the iPods shared memory section is not available to the iPod for playback.

AND - We all like pix! Got any to share?

Enjoy the Z!

I'll chime in as a tech guy and huge computer nerd.

Yes the only player you can run is a Ipod, in fact the glove box has a USB connection for Ipod control (Ipod dirver). This is a limited port for that purpose. It can also be used to charge a USB device.

Sansa or any other MP3 player uses some sort of operating system that is not recognized by the 430. The reason is that Windows installs a generic driver when you plug it into a PC allowing you to use it. You 430 does not download any drivers, it is only designed with an Ipod driver which is why it works.

Your best option is to get a flashdrive or jumpdrive whatever you want to call it. Then simply transfer a copy of your music onto the drive and then plug it into the Usb port that is on the 430N not the one in the glove box. This will allow easy transfer, since flashdrives do not require any drivers. Your other option is to make a data CD and then you can transfer the CD to the HardDrive.

Hope this explains yours trouble.

2011 power wagon is on a distinguished road
Default 430 media center

Thanks for the hearty welcome, excellent replies from LeKY411 and Brad 12 kx. I have a usb card reader and plenty of cards for my cameras so I will give the flash drive method a try. I thought my sansa was just a flash drive with a few extras, but it was obvious that none of the files were recognized.

Want Mods; buy a power wagon, Dodge has done it all for you, cheap!!
special frame
more skid plates and bars than any factory truck ever
4.56 gears
limited slip rear axle
front & rear electric lockers
electric power sway bar release
huge axles
33" tires
2" lift
factory spray in bed liner
390 hp hemi only
12,000 pound winch with roller fairlead hidden in the bumper
4 & 7 pin trailer connectors in bumper
cab lights
graphics
5 speed auto with select shift
Dodge says they come standard with rubber floor mat but good luck finding one. I got the factory slush mats (highly reccomended)
My truck has a few options, the best one being the backup camera. This will save tons of time if you hook up to alot of trailers like I do.
blue tooth handsfree phone through the 430 media center is very nice
The only thing I added is running boards to reduce rock chips and so I don't have to take a running leap to get in.

Thanks again for the welcome to the forum and the technical responses so that I can use the hard drive.
