I have compiled a USD drive with a few hundred MP3 files. I have carefully curated the ID3 tags and simplified many of the artist and album names, in order to streamline them when displayed on the car's screen.
For example, I added the artist's name after each album name - For example: "Greatest Hits (Queen)". This way, multiple "greatest hits" will display with the corresponding artist name on the screen, and I can select the one I am looking for. I also edited / streamlines the artist names and certain other info.
Now, when inserting the USB drive in the car, my ID3 tags aren't being displayed for most of the files. Instead, it appears that the head unit is picking up Gracenote data for the songs and displaying that info instead of my edited ID3 tags. So I have multiple Greatest Hits without my edits showing up.
I tried various things, but did not manage to get my tags displayed. And yes, the files on the USB drive are the edited files - rechecked this with my tag editing software.
Has anyone encountered this?
