Well, I have "sort of" solved my situation. I have figured out a couple things: 1)If you use a 4GIG or larger SD card Windows Media wants to do an automatic sync when you click on sync, and I just could not figure out how to switch it to manual sync. 2)On any SD card you have to click on the sync down arrow, click on "more options", click on your device, and uncheck "create folder heirarchy on device". This has to be done because the BikeMP3 player will not read folders, only CD tracks.
I am using 2GIG SD cards, syncing about 140 tracks onto a card.The Gold Wing CD changer system will only go up to 99 tracks. On mine after it hits 99, it then goes to a second track 1, will go up to about 41 then rotate back to the "first" track 1, all the time showing CD1.
I did not purchase the "song populating" software, had trouble trying to download it.
I am using 2GIG cards, can load about 140 tracks on a card, not using full capacity. That is still a lot of music.
Cards must be set up to not "create folder heirarchy".
Reproduction (sound) is great and cost is much less than OEM 6 disc changer.
Oh,yeh---I have a couple old 256 MB cards from early digital cameras, will load some speciaty music on them, like Christmas or patriotic music. Don't ride much in Indiana around Christmas time, but you never know.
