Managing media on a 2010 Ford head unit

Auto Tech
[ Music ] ^m00:00:08 >> Hey folks, Brian Cooley. I'm in a 2010 Ford Taurus SHO, with the latest Ford sync Sony branded, hard drive based, audio and Nav head unit. The reason is I'm going to give you a quick how-to on ripping audio to that hard drive, you've got 10 gig available to you, and managing what's on there once you do fill it up. First of all you've got to put a disk in there if you want to do any ripping. We've got a single slot in this car because you have a Nav system with it. Once you get a disk in there, it begins to read it as you can see, looks it up on the Gracenote database to find the track and album information. And then you're going to get to a screen that has playback as well as the record option; looks like this, and there's your Gracenote logo - Album and artist come up, and you see our tracks are read out nicely as well. Now to put that on the hard drive, very simply go to the record button on the bottom of the stack on the right. Press that... it defaults to all tracks selected. That's what the yellow indicators mean. If you want to go 1 by 1, unselect all and then select your tracks 1 at a time. Once you've got things selected, it's very simple, right there start recording. Down here's your progress bar, which gives you the rather demoralizing update on how far you are in ripping that track, not the entire set of tracks. So as you can see, it's a little pokey. Now if you get tired of waiting for it, you want to do something else in the meantime and stop this, you do have those 2 buttons on the left. Stop the recording process, or just, it says pause the thing and you can resume it again later. Now let's manage that device. Jukebox is where you go to see what you've ripped to your hard drive, it's what they call this thing. Here's your music library, tracks... and here are all your tracks. When you have a lot of them it's handy to go with the alphabetic indicators up here, but I don't have that many right now, so it's easy just to go up and down and look at all of them. Then you've got genre, album, artist, all your typical iPod categories. Now where the library tab, I'm showing you now, let's you access what's in there and play it, it doesn't give you maintenance options. You've got to go back a screen, rather clunkily, and go to options and that's where you can manage content. So here's where you can edit playlists, library contacts, force an update from the CD database, look at where you are on storage in terms of what's on your drive, I don't have much obviously. If I want to edit library contents, take out an album, select that album, and here I can go through and delete the album or a few tracks off of it. And the same can be done by a artist, by genre, or of course track by track. Again, 10 gig available on here. Ford says it's about 2,400 tracks, that's their particular coding and compression. That's a quick how-to on getting music on, getting it off, managing and accessing it, on the hard drive in a 2010 Ford Taurus SHO or similar high end equipped Ford products. ^m00:02:53 [ Music ]
