USB sticks & SD cards

Several jobsite radio’s are equipped with an USB-SD playback function. Which USB sticks and SD cards can be used?
These jobsite radio’s are supporting USB sticks and SD(HC)-cards from 16Mb to 32Gb. (SDXC cards are not supported).

The radio skips some of my files. What am I doing wrong?
The radio only plays the supported files, other formats are not supported.

  • MP3-files are supported from 16kbps to 320kbps.
  • WMA-files are supported from 16kbps to 192kbps.
  • AAC-files are supported to 320kbps.
  • FLAC-files are supported to 1536Mbps.

The support of filetypes can vary per model, see the product specifications.

In certain cases a file cannot be played on your jobsite radio, but the same file plays correctly on your PC or Laptop. In most cases this is because of a failure in the encoding (encoding is the process to convert an audio CD to music-files) or in the extra file information (ID3 Tags) that are included in your file. This is not a problem with your jobsite radio.

When this occurs, try to convert your files again from CD with the above settings, or contact the supplier of your files which gives the problem.

There are files on my USB stick or SD(HC)-card but on the screen appears “NO FILE” what am I doing wrong?
To read files, the USB stick or SD card has to be formatted in the following file format:

Capacity from 16Mb to 32Mb -> FAT12
Capacity from 32Mb to 2Gb -> FAT16
Capacity from 2Gb to 32Gb -> FAT32

WARNING! Formatting deletes all files on the USB stick or SD card. Please make sure you have a working copy before starting the format.
