I have a car audio player with a usb port. I am using my 8GB usb stick with 1600 songs on it. It has 128MB free on the stick. I just dropped the songs on the stick, no folders.

Sometimes it will go 30 songs and stop or will go to the beginning of the songs again.

Do I have too many songs on my 8GB stick?
Do I need to make a folder and put them in a folder?
Do I need to make several folders and put them on the stick?
Will a folder be found from my car stereo? Or several folders?

Did I do this right by just dropping the songs directly on the device?

Note: there is no security folders or software on this 8Gb stick, only songs.

Since in the other forum you said it was an aftermarket radio, I'd suggest reading your manual to see what file structure is recommended and if there's a maximum size supported. From what you described it might not cope well with a lot of songs in a single folder.
