    OK,so I plugged in my iPod today with the apple supplied cable ,not GM's it went to AUX on screen and said "searching" . Once I hit the source selection tab it said "scanning ID tags" , while this is happening its transferring my music. I can unplug my iPod and the music is on the HDD . Although once stored the HDD interface is horrible, I would prefer just using the iPod plugged in and use the interface with GM's cable. Sorry for the blurry pics.

    I have come to the conclusion I will ger better quality and les hassle just by plugging my ipod into the usb port and play it that way. No mess, no fuss, no transfer. Talked to a wizard that knows about this stuff and he says the system is outdated and in 2008 when it came around it was not a high tech system, more of a gimmick.

    Agreed, seems like it was a rush job. Should of been able to just stream over Bluetooth with a iPhone or droid . I did order the Bluetooth connecter mentioned in other post, will let you know how it fairs .

    This is too funny. Had my ipod hooked up yesterday cruising, unplug it from usb and leave it in the console, go out this morning trying to figure out how to make the nav work on voice commans, thats another issue that is not going so well, go to HDD and hit it, and Wowzer , all my ipod songs are in there rockin away, had to check to make sure it wasn hooked up, and it wasn't. Another Easter miracle. Its all good. Now to figure out the nav.
    Thanks for all the input on this. Mongopush was corrct again

    Cool, you best give up on the voice recognition, it is not worth the hassle. when my started speaking spanish to me I threw in the towel with it and don't even bother, more frusteration than it's worth. Hopefully the newer system ones are better than this one. The nav is usable, but very slow and doggish, obviously a very slow processor. I get frusterated with that too. I'm keeping directions and connections so I can just remotely download directions from my smart phone to the car and don't have to wait, they are just there loaded already when I get in my car for a trip. Dunno if your car can do that as mine is a 2013 and I use the the GM onstar remote app a lot. If you don't have directions and connections this won't work either.

    question for y'all.

    I have a 16gb usb stick, I moved about 13gb onto the stick which took 45 minutes, only to have the car say, this usb stick isn't compatible. Thoughts?

    I remember when I purchased the stick I had to change the format from fat32 to NTFS....does the car's HDD only read from fat32?
