I would love to be able to modify the short file names and leave the long names alone, so I'll be searching around to see if a tool is available to do that...

Yes - and then make the short file names start with track #. Even otherwise we can change the long file names to start with track # - that will make leaf play them by track #s.

Not sure how various implementations of the FAT filesystem might deal with this. This might cause some software to get confused, so proceed with caution! Probably safer to just be sure that the first few characters of the long filename force the desired sort order, since the first few characters of both filenames are supposed to match.

I THINK that there are NOT both Short and Long file names, but that Short (8-characters before the "dot") are "manufactured" from Long names.

I thought that the long names aee truncated to 8 characters, and then, if there are duplicate names, a "~1", "~2", "~3", etc. would be substituted for the last of the 8 characters, as needed.

If there are more than 9 (or 99?) "duplicates", I do not know what it does.

But, I have never encountered both a "long" and a totally different "short" file name.

Could you please give some examples of the long, and corresponding short, file names (to help me learn)?

I learned something interesting today... I have Slacker internet radio on my Android phone (Evo 4G) and I connected it via the Bluetooth for both phone and audio this morning. When I entered the car this afternoon and restarted it I had bluetooth on in my phone, the car connected to it automatically, restarted the Slacker app (it was off at the time), and started playing again. Also, the skip track in the stereo/steering wheel skips the song in the Slacker app. I can leave the screen off and control the Slacker app using the car (pause also works). I have the Slacker app set to the higher quality audio and it sounds great through the Bluetooth connection. It does not display any song information in the stereo but that I do not mind. I also placed a call while playing Slacker radio; it paused the music during the call (very clear connection) and then resumed it when I hung up. The voice command also worked well to dial the number I spoke to it. Needless to say I am very impressed and happy.

Very cool. This is what I plan to do - get Zune Pass and stream music through my Samsung Focus.

Nope. There are certain conventions employed by Windows in *creating* the short filenames from the long names. Indeed, some are patented as part of VFAT. This is to ensure that the short filename is unique (no two the same in one directory), and that it's at least vaguely suggestive of the long filename for programs that were stuck to 8.3.

BUT.. you are free to assign ANY valid 8.3 short name to any long filename. They do not need to be related in any way.

I believe the answer would be "no video", at least while the car is ON (ready to drive, in motion or not) since that is against CA state law.

Any "video" screens need to be located where the driver cannot watch them.

So, legally, it could be done in ACC (not with the AUX-Audio Input) mode, if it was programmed to handle video and had the correct CODEXs available.

Edit to correct AUX to ACC
