Ok, so I own an 06 S60-R with the HU-850 Radio. I read somewhere that it supposedly plays Mp3 CD's but it didn't work when I tried it. I guess the newer models have it with that feature?<p>If I were to swap out radios, who has an HU-850 that is capable of reading Data CD's? Do you have stock part #'s I should be looking for? What year did it come out of?<p>Most importantly, is that radio plug and play backwards compatible with another HU-850 that did not have that capability?<p>Thanks for your help on this.

Re: Question about the HU-850 Radio (sdigital)

i thought the same thing for my 07, and was told by the dealer that you can't exchange it. do you not have an aux. in?

Re: Question about the HU-850 Radio (ExBimmerBoy)

I have an aux in and as a matter of fact I have the IMIV ipod/video adapter but I am just looking to find a replacement radio at a junk yard and I want to know which part # to look for. I'd like to have all capabilities<p>If your 07 doesn't have it then that sux, I was under the impression I needed an 07 model, anyone with a newer year? Cmon ppl!

That's kind of weird, I have an HU-850 in my 02 T5 and it plays the MP3 discs just fine. I don't don't have the aux input though.

My 05' S40 played MP3's just fine as long as the tracks were not located in folders and if there was anything on the disc other then the tracks it would not read the disc. Give that a try. Good luck.

I don't think there was a special way I did it. I just downloaded some music from the internet and then stuck a disc in the drive and hit burn.
