Strange problem , hoping someone will be able to help me with this. Switched on the car this morning , typically within about 15 odd seconds the media player files start playing automatically - but today they did not. I noticed it and started going through the menu etc assuming maybe the automatic play preference might have gone off , but there was no media player option in the menu at all. Took the USB wire in and out and while the media player gives me options the minute the wire is connected , if i select playback from the player the sound starts coming from its own speakers and not the car speakers. It was playing till 10 PM last night perfectly fine when i got back home. Its the only player i have used in the car so wondering what might have happened. I did not make any adjustments to any settings in the car. On the other hand connecting , calling with respect to phone features are working perfectly fine. This is the player i use - not really sure what the problem could be - cant be a dead battery on the media player can it? I was assuming that everytime its connected its also charging while there is playback taking place. This player is only about 8 GB so cannot be a size issue. The wire itself is also fine as its connecting and being recognized by my laptop.
