The Car Stereo Plays the Same First Song When in Shuffle Mode and Connected to the USB1 or USB2 Port

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

Your RSX-GS9 car stereo plays songs from the Music folder of the USB device in any of the following orders:

  • Alphabetically for letters
  • Numerically for numbers
  • Symbol order based on UTF-8

Note: This occurs every time you connect your car stereo to the USB1 or USB2 port.

The songs that follow vary depending whether you enabled the Shuffle play mode. This only affects the first song that the car stereo automatically selected.


  • An Apple® iPhone® mobile digital device or an Apple iPod® mobile digital device doesn't support Shuffle play mode.
  • The list display on the Music Center (SongPal) app isn't available during shuffle play. Disable the Shuffle play mode to enable the list display.
  • Shuffle play starts from the first song in the Music folder if you set Repeat play mode to Repeat Track while Shuffle play mode is enabled, then press the next button to cancel Repeat play mode.
