Random function of stereo when using USB drive

I have a 2013 SX and am very happy with the sound quality when using a USB drive in the USB slot. The satellite radio sound absolutely sucks, but that's another topic.

Has anyone used the random function to play songs on a USB drive (premium stereo with nav package)? I have noticed it actually isn't random and plays the same songs and misses a bunch of songs, it seems to play only certain ones. I unplug it, plug it back in and select random and forward through to the next songs and it always plays the same ones.

I have tried not using folders, so all songs are listed in the root folder. As best I can tell, it might have something to do with the actual title of the song (something to do with having a number in the title of the song).

Interested if anyone else has this problem. If so, I hope an update comes soon.
Thanks

I have the UVO system and my random works great for my USB flash-drive, so not sure if my system works similar to yours.

Did you select some specific folder prior to the random, so that its only playing random within that selection? e.g: you can select an artist and have it play random just on those tracks of that artist.
I can't see track titles have any bearing on the problem.

I removed all the folders from the usb drive. Just one big list of all the songs. Maybe I'll try reloading them onto the usb drive.

Xenon headlights? No, everything is stock. It still does it, even if I unplug the usb drive, delete or add a few songs and plug it back in and hit random it cycles through the same songs in the same order.

Personally i don't use random function,but i remember reading on another kia forum people complaining about it. It boiled down to certain kia radios are pre programmed with specific order of played songs when random is selected. Dumb.

Cool post and great feedback. How do you select random function any way?

Pretty Funny Topic!! And I thought it was just my system. I have over 6000 songs on my 32gb usb and damned to hell my system will continually play the same set of songs on random play. I am glad that the "next" button is located on the steering wheel....
