Put your most favorite in FLAC and the rest in high bit mp3 or another format.No luck partitioning the USB. The entertainment software only recognizes one partition. Tried partitioning as FAT 32 and NTFS, no luck.
I think there is a 8000 track/folder limitJust thought I'd post a little update since I finally got my 2021 Forte GT2. Not sure if its a case of maybe newer software on the 2021, but I have no 64GB limit that I can see.
I have a spare 128GB SSD (FAT32 format) plugged into my system full of FLAC files. Has no trouble reading and playing anything I have on it with one exception...it won't play 24/96 files. It will play 24/48 just fine though.
Why 24/48? Well, that's what my collection on my music server at home is that feeds my main music system. And I didn't want to take the time to batch convert to MP3 if I didn't have to, plus I wanted to see what the Forte's HU could actually play.
I have over 3000 songs/~200 albums loaded on the 128GB SSD. My basic layout is a folder in the root directory for the Album Artist and then a folder for each their albums in that folder. All tagged properly and embedded with album art too. I use dBpoweramp for those that care.

So I'm now wondering what the upper limit is for songs, folders, drive size is. I may have a spare 240GB to test out soon. If that work then I'll get one of those little Samsung Fit Plus 256GB USB drive as the 2.5" SATA SSD is a little clunky. Although it fits nicely in the wireless charging area.
