Windows 7: SD card to play music in car stereo

SD card to play music in car stereo

I have recently purchased a car which was originally used in Japan. It has the original stereo Nhdtw59g 36064.
The stereo has a slot for an sd card and I have been unable to get any music to play. I have tried MP3 wma. different sd cards also. I have now managed to get hold of a Japanese card but that wont work either. Does anyone know what format/fat or whatever combination enables music to be played? The stereo is in Japanese but apparently when I try it come up "No data" The rest of the stereo works. CD and hardrive. and the aux is OK but has started turning off so I would really like to get the SD to work. Thanks

Have you tried any other formats, such as .wav, AAC, etc.?

My car unit plays MP3s directly from a USB flash drive.

That requires FAT32 formatting and that is typical for USB playback.

I have no idea if that would work on your setup, but it would be the first thing I'd try.

If I try some other format, the USB drive is not recognized at all--I get an obscure error message.
