Question Pioneer DEH-80PRS - Why does it wreck my USB file structure?

Hi all,

I've just recently picked up a Pioneer DEH-80PRS, and overall I'm very happy so far.

The one thing I can't figure out though is how to set up my file structure on my USB thumb drive so the deck doesn't wreck it. It refuses to abide by the alphabet. It decides Sublime should be the first folder, then Ace of Base, followed by Tech Nine, and then Converge so on and so forth in this completely nonsensical organization for 16GB.. I can't find anything except by accident. Speaking of accidents, I'm probably going to have one trying to find an artist in what should be an alphabetical list.

So, I figured, maybe using WMP to sync to the USB like it's a player of some sort would help - no, now the menu has all the same crap in it as before, except none of the folders have anything in them.. except for one named "music" which then has all the actual music in folders arranged just as randomly as before. So all that did is add another layer of confusion.. how are you guys doing it?? You can't actually be OK with this crazy randomization of all your music.. right??

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
-Dave

My Alpine ine-928hd (I think that's the model) lists the folders in order that I added them to the drive, and sometimes just puts them in random places. I haven't figured it out either..

Hmmm, my AVH-X8500BHS does it too. It keeps my file structure ok but the folders are not alphabetized and the songs inside aren't either. A solution would be nice.

I had the same issue with all of my Pioneer radios (P99RS, 80PRS, 8400BHS) as well.

A small and free PC software FAT Sorter is what you need. Select your USB Drive in the FAT Sorter menu and click Sort

Though from just opening the drive in windows afterwards will seem nothing different then what it was before, using the drive in the Head Unit will have all the folders and songs in them in alphabetical order

This is what I use, copy files to drive then open the drive/folder and sort it.

When I add files to my hard drive, I need to make sure I have the window in alphabetical, by artist and not by song or date. If I add some songs later, I need to wipe the drive and and copy everything at once.

I tried FAT Sorter and it seems to work. Going to give Anerty's offering a shot also to see which I like better. Thanks guys! So much frustration averted..

All Pioneers do it. Its really silly. I eventually found a naming method that worked to make things in order somewhat. I actually had to use Media Monkey to format the MP3 tags in a specific way so the Pioneer head units would actually display in order.

But I actually moved away from Pioneer head units because of that. Couldn't take it anymore. I use USB volumes more than anything.

Just installed a JVC head unit and it sorts correctly.
