    So my new car has a usb connection to play music from (which is awesome!!). However, when I plug my usb into the car’s usb connection and try to play music, it works, but every other track is “unavailable.” However , there is no “track” there..i.e. if my music folder copied from mac os x 10.5 has 12 songs, the car reads 24 files and file 1 will play song 1, file 2 will be unavailable, file 3 will play song 2 from music folder. My assumption is that Mac OSX is adding in some kind of invisible file or something, but I’m not sure what’s going on, would anyone happen to know?

    thank you!

    Your assumption is correct.

    Mac OS X adds a so-called resource fork (if I remember correctly), that is invisible under Mac OS X, but visible in Windows and now probably on your car radio.

    I don't know what do with that though.

    maybe change your thread title accordingly, so that others with knowledge are able to help you.
