Question about Pioneer DEH-P690UB CD Player
I recently burned an mp3 cd on iTunes but my hu (Pioneer DEH-6900) only plays the first few songs. When I press "list" and start looking through the folders, it will show all of the artists' names but will only contain files up to a certain artist. For example, on this CD, i have artists Alkaline Trio through Xavier Rudd but the hu only reads up to John Butler Trio. Past john butler trio, the hu says none of the artists contain folders or files. When I manually skipped each song, it went up to the last john butler trio song and then went back to the alkaline trio song. Other times when i have burned mp3 cd's with less artists (ie the last cd contained 16 artists) but with just as many songs the hu read the cd just fine. I have just counted and up to john butler trio, there are 28 artists. Sorry this was such a long post but I was trying to be as descriptive as possible. Also, when i put the CD in my computer, my computer reads all of the files just fine. If you need any more details or actual pictures, I will put them up or e-mail them.
It's possible you are reaching the 99 folder limit of the deck. Count how many folders (artist folders and album folders) there are between Alkaline Trio through John Butler Trio. The manual says there is a maximum of 99 folders acceptable, but it doesn't say what happens if you have more.
I also assume the bitrate of the songs is 320kpbs or below, yes?
The manual also mentions "Folder hierarchy is allowed up to eight tiers. However, practical hierarchy of folder is less than two tiers", whatever that might mean.
