    Hi, ive tried using the HTC desire as a usb hard drive for my stereo, it recognises that its usb but it cant find any of the tracks. I have a suspision that its the location of the music files, cant remeber the radio number at present will post, ive put an 16gig usb stick in and it reads that ok so its not size of memory.
    The radio reads WMA, MP3 and other formats.
    Any one got any ideas?
    Also it damn annoying when you plug your phone into the usb of a pc (to charge) and cant use the media player through headphones. Whats the deal with that.

    Welcome to the forums!

    I have heard of a similar issue on the Desire HD... think it's something to do with the amounts of folders (and sub folders) your music is organised in to.

    I think that, on my DHD, the music was actually in a music folder, then a whole list of other folders, before actually getting to the files... it's fine on your phone, but when your car is looking, it may only go one or two folders in to the phone... am I making sense?!?!

    Basically, instead of having music=>album=>artist=>track name (where each is a folder and music is the music folder on your SD card), try to have your music set as music=>track name... this seemed to work for the DHD (f I remember correctly)! :)
