I loaded almost 1000 songs into a single folder of a 16 gig USB stick, and they are all in MP3 format. For some reason, the CT could only play 255 of them. Why? Is there a limit in the number of songs one can load onto a folder? Thanks in advance

Sounds like bad coding. In one 'byte', you can store 256 different states, and you're bumping up against 255? Someone didn't think very well when they coded this.

Break them up into sub-folders, and it should work.

But there's really no excuse for bad programming. We did a whole lot better 20-30 years ago.

Sigh, welcome to the bloat-code era.

Some of us are taking advantage of this and producing absolutely revolutionary products.

From the manual:

Maximum folder levels - 8
Maximum number of folders per device - 999 (including root)
Maximum number of files per device - 65025
Maximum number of files in a folder - 255
