    I realized that I have a USB connection in my car radio. So I put some music on my 4gig usb, I use for college. This played fine. I then wiped it all, and then put different songs on it. The new songs go on, but the old songs stayed? And theyre all messed up and sound like a scratched cd, they seem to mix up the tracks and change numbers?

    What is going on?
    How do I wipe it properly!?

    Did you empty your trash when you deleted the old music?

    When pulled out the USB key, did you eject if from the Finder first?

    Sounds like a duff usb key if they are corrupted as you`ve described. I`d say try formatting the stick (Fat format), put some new songs on it and see what you get. If it still doesn`t sound right i`d try another stick.

    yep emptied trash, and ejected it properly. It's more so that the music files sound so messed up.

    Another question. When I click, drag and drop from itunes, theyre mp4 files, is this because of the artwork? Is there anyway to convert all the files, once on my usb, to mp3 in one go?

    OK so, I just wiped the whole thing clean, then put a few tracks on. All mp3 files. Then inserted into radio. Radio now says "No Files"!? When I insert it back into macbook, and open it up, all the files are there!?

    You might check teh manual on your radio and see if it tells you how to do it. Maybe they need to go in a specific folder.
