You are in the Lincoln MKS
What is this discussion about?
Lincoln MKS, Sedan
Mar 28, 2010 (5:15 pm)
This forum seems to focus on shortcomings, I drove the Mercedes E350, Lexus ES350, Infiniti M35x, Taurus SHO, Cadillac CTS, Buick luCerne and Toyota as well as the Lincoln MKZ all 2010. What I found more disturbing that some of these over 40K cars didn't have back up cameras or rain sensing wipers to mention a couple of the items. I ultimately bought the MKS with Eco Boost and Ultimate package. I couldn't be happier and love the car.

I have been taking a different route to work - so it is longer - because I enjoy my MKS so much. I haven't found any owners of ecoboost MKSs that do not like them. There is a poster on a different forum that has a transmission problem but he still seems to love the car.

There is a point of diminishing return......
You are exactly right! IMO, the MKS may be the best value for the money.

Can you provide a link or a reference to the other forum where the transmission problem is discussed?

Blue Oval News - in the LIncoln MKS forum under "Engine, Powertrain, and Transmission."
Based on his most recent post, the problem has been fixed. It was a whining noise and the dealer was stumped for awhile. It seems that they found the cause and replaced a part that regulates the line pressure in the transmission.
#2833 of 2980 Ripping Music (via CD)
Apr 11, 2010 (9:08 pm)
Just a random question to those who have tried ripping music to the "Jukebox" feature from a CD. (Specifically speaking about a burnt cd containing mp3 files, not a store bought from the record label)
When you ripped the music, do the track titles and artist names appear in the Jukebox? Or does it simply say "Track 1 - Unknown Artist?" Again, specifically about burned music on a CD-R. I have a bit of a pet peeve when it comes to these type of things.
This question attains to ripping it and storing it in the Jukebox and simply playing the cd itself in the player.

I have downloaded MP3s and burned them onto a disc and then copied the disc onto my jukebox. No, the track titles and artist names do not appear. To solve that problem, I just go into the jukebox menu and type in the information and it saves it. The end result is you have the same information as a commercial CD.
Granted, it is not perfect but you can input the data for 20 songs in about 10 minutes. Of course, another option is to simply put the MP3s on a flashdrive and not even use the jukebox for downloaded music. With the flashdrive, the titles and artist will be shown and you don't have to enter it yourself. The flashdrive uses sync while the jukebox is a function of the nav system. From the user's perspective, either way works fine with voice commands or using the touchsceen.

Can you "rip" MP3s stored in a flashdrive into the Jukebox? (With the titles appearing?)

No, you can't rip MP3s from a flashdrive. They have to be on a CD. The hard disk is in the Nav system, not Sync.

A good number of people just have a flashdrive plugged into the USB port and never use the jukebox since you can't rip the MP3s onto it.
I had a number of commercial CDs that I loaded onto the Jukebox. I also had a number of MP3s on a flashdrive. My problem was that I would sometimes forget which song or album was in which place. Therefore, I burned music CDs with the MP3s from my flashdrive and loaded them onto the jukebox so everything is in the same place.
If you load homemade CDs, you will need to go into the Jukebox menu and edit the title "unknown artist" to the actual artist name. It doesn't take long once you get familiar with it. Of course it would be faster to enter "Cher" than "Electric Light Orchestra" but it is quite doable.
