I actually tried that last night and it works pretty well.. Well, I burned a WMA disk (Windows Media Audio) disk that now has a bunch of songs on it. I figured that if the WMA disk didn't work I would then burn a MP3 disk. The WMA's are smaller so I could fit more songs on it. And contrary to the owners manual it does play the WMA's. The owner's manual doesn't say anything about it playing WMA's, but does say it will play MP3's..

So the bottom line is don't always believe the owners manual.

I received and installed the REQ 6 cd radio. It went without a hitch, everything works including the hands free and the bluetooth. I talked with the dealer and they said that it needed the computer flashed to make it work correctly. I guess I will take it in when I have some time for them to do that. But like I said it seems to all work.

One thing that I wasn't aware of, is that the REQ radio does not have a random function on playing cd's. But it will play DVD's, so it should play a DVD with WMA's on it. So theoretically I could drive thousands of miles without hearing the same song repeat.

Another thing I've learned is that it will play Video DVD"s as well. Now to figure out how to wire and where to place a video screen in the truck..
