Thanks
I now have this part sorted. I removed the cel from synch and did a reverse pair with my cel. Now it seems to be working fine. My cel autmatically links to the Blue Tooth now.

the problem w/ doing it via a jump drive is, acc'd to sync people at ford, you can't use voice commands to choose playlists, etc... you can do that only thru a usb connected device such as an ipod.

JPopNC mmmfloorpie: I'm with you although I do have 3000 songs I struggle to find others to add to that number. Once I cracked 3000 songs it's been months since I've added a significant number of songs.

Then there are CDs I've borrowed & downloaded as well. Therefore it is comepletely feasable, atleast in my opinion, that someon can own in excess of 6,000 songs.
Did I say it wasn't feasible? I said I was astounded.

Does anyone have an knowledge or information to share about this? Thanks for you help.
It works. I have the same situation as you (i have close to 15,000 songs though). Just leave it indexing for a while. I did a 1hour drive and left it indexing and by midway through it was done and all commands were working fine. It will stay "indexed" until you unplug the ipod.

Oh, and just as an aside, it always astounds me when people say they have XXXX number of songs...

I have just about every single song I've ever heard in my entire life on my computer and that's still just under 1000 songs.
