I tried to connect my galaxy s to both my home hi-fi system and car stereo. The phone usb settings are "mass storage". My home system says "reading..." forever. My car stereo after a few seconds of scanning says "no device".
I used the original usb cable, which works perfect with my pc.
I always listen to music with usb memory sticks without any issue.
Both the systems recharge the battery.

My car stereo is iphone ready, in fact if I connect an iphone it works. I can't stand this Lips Sealed

What am I doing wrong? Undecided

Thanks for any help.

If you have an rca to 3.5mm jack cable, you can plug it into your home stereo's input in the back and connect your phone to it via the earphone input. Then you just select the right source on your stereo and you're all set.

For your car, if there's a similar auxilliary input that you can connect a stereo jack to, you can also connect via the earphone input. If your car has no input like that then another solution is to use an fm transmitter.

Ipod uses a proprietary communication protocol.

And if you are trying to use it as a storage drive, your stereo is looking for a fat partition.

The rfs partition is not supported.

Your.best bet is an fm transmitter.

Thanks for your suggestions Happy

So if I add an internal SD card, fat 32, both systems should be able to see it?

That sounds like a novel idea, but I doubt it will work, as Android doesn't relay it self as a USB thumb drive instead it shows it self as a media Drive.

I believe it identifies itself as a mutli storage device. if so, then there is compatibility issue, Can your stereo and car accept a USB drive that has two drives? And will it be able to handle the RFS by ignoring it and just going to the external Drive.

In any event isn't it a lot easier to just keep a USB thumb Drive handy?

None the Less I encourage you try it.

Peace.

Thanks IronSingh, Interesting points... I'll try this during the weekend to see what happens!

The reasons why I don't like the idea of having a separate usb drive are that I need to:
1 synchronize music files between my phone, pc AND usb drive;
2 remember to always carry the usb drive with me.
That's why I'd prefer to connect it via an usb cable which is already there.

If all fails I'll use an old rca cable and solve the problem that way, but it looks anachronistic to me! I used it with my first usb player many years ago and it was not comfortable to control the music from the device instead of using the original stereo controls.
Also, I would need two cables, one for recharging, the other for playing.

Cheers Happy

Yes I know what you mean.

It is a pain to keep everything synced.

What I do is I keep a folder with all my music in it and I just update that folder.

then I just copy that folder to My Phone, MP3 player (for gym), USB Drive (for Car).

As I have to do it for the Mp3 player anyway, I just leave it like that.

Peace.
