Volkswagen RNS 510 Loading of MP3’s

When loading MP3’s onto the RNS510 the easiest way to do this is with DVD’s and a single top level folder called “music” or whatever else you would like to call it. The RNS510 has a limitaton that only allows you to copy one folder at a time and this gets around this “problem” and makes this a much quicker process.

Burn the music to DVD’s with a folder of “Music” as the top level directory and then you can click on the folder “Music”, choose copy and it will do the whole DVD in one go, you can leave this going when you get out of the car as it will turn off when it’s finished.

Burning to DVD’s means you only need 4 or 5 to fill the system and it makes it easy to load it back on if you have the unit replaced or want to blow away what you have on there and start again. Deleting the top level folder “Music” gets rid of everything in one go otherwise you have to deleted each top level folder and it takes some time.

Other then that try whatever setup you want under the Music top level folder, this method means it’s easy to start again or reorganise your music.
