For those of you with a MyGig, how do you load your music? Since I have had mine, I always listen to Sirius.

I decided to load some of my CD's and now have 2,626 songs. There is a feature: Play by song, so it randomly plays a song picking randomly from each CD. Neat. Some CD'd I haven't listened to for years so the memories are great.

Out of of 28GB, I have used 9.1 GB, leaving me 18.9 GB. Now I need to go out and find some more music! LOL

:cool:

I don't have access to my cd collection. I have a lot on my hard drive at home so I have been loading a lot onto a flash drive then plug it in and hit copy all songs. But the random on all songs makes an interesting playlist.

Does the quality of sound diminish each time the music gets copied? :confused:

I know when I ripped mine to mp3 i did rip at a higher quality. Sounds better but takes up more space. Im kinda a nut when it comes to my music and if it sounds like crap I delete it and won't even keep it.

I've copied using both methods... direct from CD and also from flash drive. Both work well.

One thing I've always thought a bit tedious was creating a playlist. The MYgig allows multiple playlists, but AFIK there is NO easy way to create or edit them. Creating them on the stereo itself is a PIA imo. It would be so much nicer to be able to create and edit them on a computer and then transfer them to the stereo.

One advantage to ripping directly from the CD to the MyGig hard drive, at least it has been for the few I did, was the Gracenotes software built into the system was able to properly list and name all of the tracks on the album.
However, most of the time I simply put music on a flash drive. As I am a part time DJ, I have tons and tons of MP3 files at my disposal

I do have some music on my computer, and did transfer it with a flash drive.

Depending on how many songs that are on a CD, it takes about 10 to 12 minutes to load a CD. The first time I did this, I did it in a series of 10 CD's. I proceeded to load them all day! When I was done, the truck would not start! Probably because of the Kicker amps! :( So, I had to hook up the charger.

From then on, every time I proceeded to load more CD's, I first hooked up the charger, put the Key on ACC and loaded away! On the MyGig, each CD becomes its' own file folder, all listed in alphabetical order by the name of the CD, not the artist. Neat.

The disadvantage of an MP3 is that the screen displays a music note; copying directly from a CD displays the Album Cover for each song on the CD.

:cool:
