I have a GT Q2 (2007 model year) , and from service menu ,SW is 5.00 , but although i can play normal CDs , whenever i insert an mp3 CD , it says CD error.

Tried different CDs ,both with drag and drog method file transfer from computer , and with burning programs. (like imgburn) .. no luck

why ?

If i'm to provide any other info , i will

By the way ,what is the highest SW for this type of connect nav+ systems ? (4.08 - 5.00 sw types)

is 12.3 FW compatible with gt nav+ units ??

On the face of the headunit, does it have 'MP3' written on it? If not, it's not compatible with MP3, which is what I suspect. It should otherwise be very straight forward, and does not require any particularly specialist burn.

Yup i've a connectnav, updated the firmaware and it reads MP3 cd's, but besides buggering the menus its not worth of it, especially becasue on songs that has "snare" it gets all jerky and becomes unberable to ear.

Connect Nav units that play mp3s do not have "mp3" on them, thats only the std headunit.

I have heard people say that mp3s "snare" when playing though.

Personally I cant see why anyone would want too listen too mp3s (or wma, aac or mp4) because the quality is massively inferior to 30 year old cds (wav).

The best thing to do is to buy a cd changer emulator like a Dension or Connects2 etc, then connect a hard rive or sd card to it and then you can play whatever you want that way. This also frees up the cd drive for the nav function.
