    Re: Recording from Ipod to HDD

    Seems to me I tried something similar 3 years ago right after taking delivery of my V... and if I'm not mistaken, the only way to record tunes to the HDD is to take them off a CD while it's playing. If I'm wrong, please tell me!

    Best regards,

    Elie

    Can't do it from an iPod. iTunes is proprietary software. You have to use a USB drive and MP3 format.

    I'm in the process of recording all my music from iTunes off a USB memory stick right now. I created a new Playlist in iTUNES and converted all the music to MP3, then I exported all 3600+ songs to a USB stick.

    The V's HHD imported all the ID3 tags and now I'm recording all the music. It took over 4 hours with our Volt.

    More to follow as I had to shut off the cars accessory mode to tend to a few things with wifey. I wonder if it continue to record with the ignition off.

    Use your regular iPod cable in the USB , not the gm provided cable. It won't recognize as an iPod at that point and will start to search for music. It takes awhile but eventually seemed to get my music transferred to the drive.

    Re: Recording from Ipod to HDD

    You're not doing anything wrong. Someone already said it. iTunes is proprietary and recording from this app directly to the cars HD is not possible. You must first create a playlist for the tracks you want, convert to MP3 format, save to a flash drive or burn to CD. Once this is done you can record tracks from the CD or flash drive to the vehicles HD.

    good luck

    Guys, I recorded from my ipod. I have to go back to my car and remeber how I did it. The HDD allows you to set up 6 play list, 100 in each play list. I have all 6 covered. YOU CAN RECORD! It's late, I'll check how I did it tomorrow.
