    S / SV Stock Head Unit MP3 Discs

    So if your like me and bought a base model micra, you probably have your tunes on your phone using the 3.5mm headphone jack plugged into the head unit, plus wires, and a charger for your phone.

    Ugh.

    You could use the CD player. But that only holds a max of 20 songs. And having the 1990's 50 cd binder in the car kinda sucks too. I like my car clean.

    There is an alternative. MP3 CD's. Even though the head unit doesn't say it supports it other then a confusing blurb in the manual. So I tried it out, and successfully burned a CD with 200 mp3's on a single disc. Now were talkin. No wires. No battery draining bluetooth tethering. Just simple.

    So here's how you do it.

    (Windows 8.1 Instructions, others likely similar.)
    Pop in a blank CD into your Burner. I personally choose maxell CD-R 700mb 80 minute discs.

    You will see a window pop up:


    You want to pick the bottom option. You can name the disc whatever you like.

    The next window you will see will look like this:


    From here you can open another window and drag and drop your mp3 files into this new window.

    If you only have a few Mp3's then you can do this:


    This will burn the CD.

    Now lets just say you have a metric TON of music you want to add like I do. Well putting them all on the disc is a bit of a pain looking for the right groove going down the highway. But there is a solution:

    Right click on the blank space, and make new folders. Like this:



    There ya go..

    Now drag and drop those tracks into the folders.



    Thats it. Now the folders dont have to be by band name. Thats just the way I like it. You can make various mixes to your liking like, "Metro's Smooth Jazz" or whatever. Up to you.

    Once you got it sorted out, hit this: Finish burning.

    Your gonna see this:

    You can name the CD whatever you want.

    Hit next. Depending on the speed of your computer, it could take a little bit.

    Grab yourself a coffee because you are awesome.

    Part 2 coming soon.
