    I just recently bought a new deck for my car, (Pioneer AVH-p3100) and it has a usb port, I can charge my droid using it but it won't let me play music or do anything else... Anyone know if there's a way for it to recognize it as a music player? Maybe an app for stuff like that? lol

    haha, very good choice, i was about to buy that (off topic: how annoying is the 24 hour time?)
    anyways, im probably still going to get that exact one, but ya, i need a way for this to work too. does anyone know?

    wouldnt the sd card just need to be mounted or something?

    Nah, man, I tried mounting it but it didn't make a difference.

    Yea, it's a very nice deck, and for only 297, you can't really beat it. I'm just hoping I get the usb thing to work :)
    I mean, I can still use the aux port, but it's not the same lol, plus it doesn't charge my droid.

    well you could have it plugged in to the usb and the aux, but that would just be annoying (and the sound sometimes gets crackly on high volume form the headphone port)
    that is a really great price, i found one around that online
    i hope something is worked out, but you can always get a micro usb/ usb port adapter and put ur sd card into that, but its not the same, good luck

    would a usb flash drive work on that player? If it did I would go with that option instead

    I think it's just not finding the right folder, anyone know if there's something I can do differently?

    I would check out the manual that came with the deck. I know for my JVC, files on any usb drive have to be in a certain format or my deck won't recognize anything.

    Read the manual and see if the songs need to be in a certain folder. Seems like it should work after mounting the sdcard.

    Also, forgot to mention. If you mount your sd card, then you can't access the card from your phone.

    I'm going to reference my JVC because that's what I'm familiar with. But, on my JVC deck all of the mp3's on my thumb drive have to be in a folder, with that folder being named a certain way. For instance my manual states that the my folders names must first be numbered (ie: 01) and then can be named (ie: 01 Jay-Z Bluprint 3).

    Give this a try.

    Never liked pioneer Kenwood the way to go most compatible and full function headunits IMHO works great on all the kenwood dnx series when mounted and through the bluetooth module also. I would see if pioneer has a firmware update if your unit supports it like mine its needed a few updates and tweaks

    Mounting should make a difference. Your head unit can't access files on the SD card if it isn't mounted. Only one device can access the SD card at a time. You don't want the Droid accessing the SD card when you have it connected to your head unit.

    It's entirely possible that you're having several issues. You definitely need to mount the card. However, if another issue is preventing you from playing music then you'll need to address that issue as well.
