Hello
After owning various SPORTAGES for last 10+ years. I have now down sized and just brought a 2014 SOUL mixx. As a car for my now needs its great,.
And as you all are aware this little beauty is a youngsters car, (Mood lights around door speakers, etc). But when I went to put on a C.D (Oh my there isnt a CD player fitted
So how do I to get to hear all my favoured 60,s music? Looking through the handbook it recommends using an MP3 or I Pod   
On to my trusty pc and hit on MP3/I p od , I now don't know my ass from my elbow, I'm more confused than ever, with all the talk of "ROOT drive etc".
I have no idea now what device is best suited for my new little car, so if anybody can help an old fart that is a Techno Dinosaur. as to what is best to use . It would be most appreciated

Many Thanks

Hi Peter, and welcome to the forums.
Many of the members use pen drives, that fit into the USB slot in the car. Fairly easy to put your CDs into your PC and store them in i-tunes, or similar. You can them transfer them onto the pen drive, and have hours of music in the car. I use a 16 Gb pen drive, so far with 502 songs on it, and it has hardly started to fill up.

BTW - I am 66 and deffo not technical, bit always a neighbour's kid who can sort it!

Like a mug I paid out for a 32Gb stick. It'll never be more than 10% full.

Hello Thanks to all that replied and gave me advice.
I have followed advice given and brought a "Sandisk 16GB stick". "RIPPED all my 60s music on to PC, then !"SYNCED" on to the "Sandisk 16GB stick"
Tested it on the TV all worked great Went out to the car and put my "Sandisk 16GB stick into the "USB port and Car unit says no "Media inserted" Tried a number of times still no luck The car media system options , nothing for music, Pictures or dvd,s, being accessiable.
Ive read the hand books, got in the Local neighbors kid, and still nothing.
1 last thing ive seen in the handbook is the "RESET BUTTON". ive refrained from using this until I have consulted the "ORACLE", (That means you my friends) It defers everything back to factory settings. Can I please have your advice again
Many thanks (for both last time and "hopefully this time").

Hope this helps.

Hello All
Ive tried again to get the USB to work, ive now looked at the screen options again.
Ive gone in to "ALL MENUS". And the 11 option symbols appear, "Radio" is lit, so are "current location, Navigation, Phone, Quick guide, Climate and Setting"
The following option symbols are NOT lit: "Music Video, Image, and UAX"
Does this mean its unavailable on this vehicle? or is something that is switched off?
If anyone can helpme on this, if not ill have to try again at the Dealership
Many Thanks
Pete

I would have thought that having a USB socket on the car, then that is your AUX input. Can you find someone with an ipad or mp3 player, and plug that in? If that works, you know it is your pen drive.
