The perfect MP3 settings and USB format for my Hyundai

Hyundai logo in silver lines and blue lettersI've got a problem with playing MP3 files from my USB-pen on to the USB connection in on my dashboard of my Hyundai ix20. After trying all sort of things I found the perfect solution.

Flash-drive format
First I formatted my pen-drive of 16 GB to the NTFS system but that didn't work. After formatting it to FAT32 it all worked fine, the older FAT is allso supported.

The bigger the flash-drive to slower the files are loading. I use a pen-drive of 16 GB with an USB 2.0 connection.

Pick the right MP3 codec
Than I wanted to put some music files on to my pen-drive. First I tough to just copy files from my drive like they are originally in MP3, WMA, OGG, M4A and AAC. Some did work, others are skipped to play. OGG, M4A and AAC didn't work. MP3 and WMA did work sometimes. I found why some did play and others didn't. MP3 and WMA files can be played with many different codecs like there are LAME MP3, Fraunhofer ISS MP3, WMA 9.1 codec and the WMA 10 pro codec. I figured out that WMA 10 pro coded did not work at all. So I converted my all my files to WMA 9.1, stereo, 1 pass, all to 128 kbps (this determines the quality, the higher the better the quality). After that it all worked fine, and everything was loading fast even is my pen-drive of 16 GB is full of WMA files. More about music file formats.

Synchronise music with MediaMonkey Jukebox
Best way to synchronise my pen-drive is by using MediaMonkey Jukebox.

With this music player you can configure my pen-drive in that way, that every file that I want to sync from my PC to my flash-drive that all types of music files first are converted to the specific format, like I choose the WMA 9.1 codec, 1 pass, stereo, 128 kbps. I sync all my music to the main root on my pen-drive. That worked the fastest for me.

The perfect configuration
  • Use an USB 2.0 pen-drive that is not to big, like 16 GB, the smaller the faster.
  • Check if the pen-drive is formated to FAT32.
  • Convert your music files to the WMA 9.1 codec in stereo, 1 pass at 128 kbps.
  • Synchronise the music to MediaMonkey Jukebox.
  • Hope this solution works for your USB connection on your Hyundai.

Hyundai cars that are supported
This solution should work for the Hyundai i10, i20, i30, i40, ix20, ix35 and all other Hyundai cars with an USB connection.
