    Posted: 17 May 2012 at 6:44pm
I have a 2008 Acenta and want to be able to play music from a USB stick so bought one of these adapters for the AUX socket in the armrest .............

..... but all I get is silence. Anyone had any similar experiences?

You would need something to convert digital music on USB to analogue input - and this would not work Unhappy.  Someone may be able to suggest different approach (have you a phone with music on you could get adaptor to put this through jack plug - just a thought)Lamp.

Thanks QQ. It's no major problem to be honest. I had a USB input on my previous Fiesta and it was handy to plug in a USB stick full of MP3 files but if I can't do this on the QQ it's no great loss - I can always stick to good old CDs.  I do have a Sony MP3 player (which I've hardly used) and presumably that would work through the AUX input but it's another device that needs plugging into the 12v socket or alternatively fully charged up beforehand. No such hassles with the USB stick!

Apologies for being really thick, but what exactly is 'connect' - I've seen it mentioned a lot on this forum. Confused

connect also allows a USB stick with music on to be played through system - USB port is under the arm rest

QQ - that is exactly the setup I'd like on my car. I wonder if a car audio specialist might be able to replace the jack socket with a USB? Ermm

Its the Main reason I upgraded to an ntec, as at the time the Accentas didnt have the USB. I bought a Cheap Ipod nano and just plug in and it comes up with all the features of the ipod except the pretty pictures, but that may change with the Revamp next year.....Wink
 
And before ya go there Cowps, yes the wheels were an unexpected Bonus .....LOL

Well after all this time at least you now admit it.  How many poor souls have been suckered though, after you lied and said the wheels were the main draw to the N-Tec for you?

Might be old type technology but i used to have a FM transmitter gadget that plugged into cigarette lighter socket and took either a usb stick or a small audio plug.
cant remenber the name but this looks very similar.
sorry i cant get link to load properly

Thanks there EricosThumbs Up might have been too late in night for my brainLOL

Yes gadget , bought mine back in 2005 , took i pod via headphone socket then i found it would work better via USB lead,it played wma files off my memory stick  as well. cant find it at the moment (story of my life!) Embarrassedto get name off it.Would think technology has moved on in interveening years, saved putting the then car into a workshop to say nothing of the expense of altering car and it was easy to transfer / use in other vehicles .,might suit  some people.
