    Just bought a 256 GB SD card, loaded it with ~60GB of tunes from my iTunes library, and when I select SD Card on the Media menu, it keeps saying please insert card, despite numerous attemps at inserting/ reinserting card.
    The card, (and it's contents) are fully recognized on my other 2 computers.

    Regards,

    Pat

    Did you format it first and then change your files to mp3? I don't think the head unit will play apple files.

    Oh too big. I have read 32 gig max. FYI I did get a new GC to read a 64 gig card but it did not like it. My Cat loves the 32 gig card and the music sounds much, much better than XM.

    I'm having the same issue, won't read my SD 64 Gb card.

    I've seen others get them to read fine, I think Ironside is one of them.
    Any ideas?

    No help here, I use a thumb drive 16GB....but I do convert the music to mp3 format (in iTunes)...sort of use to it since I work/play on both platforms....
    All else fails, the "mp3 player" to radio via bluetooth works great...just don't give it to your teenage daughters in the car...LOL

    I am using a 128 GB SD card. Try formatting in NTFS and then loading the files (mp3 or wma). Put it into the slot and give it a few minutes. Mine takes the longest to load when it is inserted, if I leave it in it seems to load a little faster.

    I am aware of it being illegal, and thats only while in motion. Doesn't mean i haven't had it in my previous 3 Dodge's though. Just didn't know if the unit itself was capable of reading/playing videos.

    Going over the speed limit is against the law as well but our Hellcats certainly have that capability in spades. That said I doubt there's a way out of the box but I'm sure someone will figure it out soon. I believe there are already a couple of hardware solutions and a software solution as well (Lockpick or something like that).

    I have the lockpick already, i was more just curious if anyone knew if the system itself would play video files from an SD card, USB, etc.

    Anyone have luck with a card that's exFAT formatted? It'd be helpful if moving forward people would post their configurations.

    Here's the config for the card I have that doesn't work...

    Size: 64GB
    Format type: exFAT
    Audio file type: mp3
    Current space used: 24GB
