I was always led to believe that the premium audio system can only ripp original music cd's however today I put in a copied cd from eBay years ago and it actually ripped it to the hard drive !! , now id love to know how he/she set up the disc as there is obviously a way to burn a disc in such a way that it ripped it . I'm guessing some sort of text or something .

It's more about having the correct software. I use iTunes to rip pretty much whatever I want.

Interesting :popcorn:

Can you tell us more about the disc you copied? Album, artist... Brand of cd?

Anyway you can put in a PC and extract some info?

Why wouldn't it rip? If you can play it, then the hardware is reading it, whatever the CDs origin. I've only found a problem when the CD has copyright protection, as one of my (genuine, bought from a shop) Kasabian albums had.

That's my point , according to the manual you can only ripp copy protected cd's but after today for me that's not the case as the car sterio ripped a copied cd

I think if the CDR was burned under .cda format then it should burn OK, it's just the .MP3 it refuses to copy over.

Also, maybe if CloneCD was used then it would be hard to distinguish between the 2 ?

Thanks again I was thinking it was used by a certain cd programmer . I shall try that. As an alternative I could rent music from the library as it's only 50p

Found some interesting info on the Honda Oddessy forums...

- Only recordings from a standard CD-DA (44.1 kHz, 16 bit stereo PCM digital sound data) to HDD are supported.

- Digital music files, such as MP3, WMA, AAC etc., in CD-R, DVD-R and USB flash memory devices cannot be copied to HDD. Likewise, digital music files recorded to HDD cannot be copied to CD-R, DVD-R and USB devices.
This is interesting...

I finally tried the import feature out today over lunch and it's not too bad.

I just burned a CD in iTunes (music CD, because I'm told an MP3 disc won't work) popped it in and the Odyssey automatically started importing everything.

A few minutes later, the songs were imported and I could control everything by voice search!

I was worried it wouldn't have the artist name or song title because of the reliance on the reliance on the Gracenote database product, but I burned the CD with metadata intact and everything transfered over. It's a little weird because it lists my playlist name as the album name, but it's an adequate user experience, I guess.

Sadly, it looks like I'll have to build my playlists from scratch within the Honda system, and import things one burned CD at a time (a 15 minute process x 100 CDs).

I wonder if Honda will be able to support importing everything from an iPod if they come out with a (much needed) firmware update.

Ok I will do that because I just tried wmp and good news it ripped to the hard drive but bad news no text so trying it all in is a pain especially in this heat , bog when you used iTunes what was the format ? A lot of my iTunes is mp3 . Also that's uncanny because I also tried it with Coldplay tracks ,only I tried the ghost stories album.

Ok cheers pal , it would be even better if it showed album art like with iPod classic. Someone on this site said that if you hold down the across button on the left hand side of steering wheel it jumps to the next album but for me I get no joy unless in doing something wrong .

This is getting interesting but as a non techie I am beginning to loss the place a wee bit. Would be grateful if someone can post staged instructions about home to do this.

Me too :)

Are we saying that a ploy has been found to burn a CDR with .MP3's on to the HDD?

Hey kremmen , as you can fit around 1000 songs on a DVD and also we know that the stereo will play a DVD , so have you ever tried it to see if it play the tracks and also would it show that blank screen or would it actually show the track info.

I've tried the HDD for normal albums and since deleted them and gone back to USB.

My issue with the HDD, compared to the USB, is that it keeps playing the same album over and over instead of skipping to the next one. Trying to select the next album manually while driving is a tad risky IMO, unless you're stationary, which rarely happened for me when the album ended.

USB just plays from start to finish with no intervention needed.

While USB doesn't have all the info, I know what album and track is playing because it's a known favourite.

Ok guess not then , well I will try it soon to see if it works but I will probably just have the blank screen when in motion.
