I have done this before for my wife's car but I can't for the life of me remember how:

My new car (Audi A3) will read mp3/aac/wma and m3u files off a USB stick. However a lot of my files are now flac, how do I copy playlist and file over whilst re-encoding to mp3 where necessary?

This is the sort of thing that, if I needed to do it, I would have written a custom script to get the job done. Did someone write such a script (either you or someone else), and that's how you did it in the past, and now you need to just remember and find the script?

I think I've just figured it out in winamp. You need to let Winamp manage the device an then you can set sync options

Kind of worked, it kept crashing. In the end foobar with one way sync did the job.
